About Love... just a little bit

To fall in love is easy, even to remain in it is not difficult; our human loneliness is cause enough. But it is a hard quest worth making tofind a comrade through whose steady presence one becomes steadily the person one desires to be. - Anna Louise Strong

When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out. - Elizabeth Bowen

The essence of romantic love is that wonderful beginning, after which sadness and impossibility may become the rule. - Anita Brookner

Are we not all members of the same Body and partakers of the same Spirit and heirs of the same blessed hope of eternal life? . . . Why do we not, as becomes brethren, dwell together in unity, but are so apt toquarrel and break out into heats, to crumble into sects and parties, todivide and separate from one another upon every trifling occasion? Give me leave . . . in the name of our dear Lord . . . to recommend to you this new commandment of His, that you love one another. Which is almost a new commandment still, and hardly the worse for wearing, so seldom is it put on, and so little hath it been practiced among Christians. - John Tillotson

All lovers young, all lovers must Consign to Thee and come to dust... - William Shakespeare
