The most powerful lesson I've learned in life is to never act like someone you're…
I believe in love at first sight.
It has to be true because it happened to me.
I was at an audition with the actor Sam Claflin and we both felt the thunderbolt as soon as we met.
I knew what I felt but it was only much later that I learned he’d run straight off to his agent and said, ‘I’ve just met the girl I want to marry.’
( Laura Haddock )
If I had to choose between loving you and breathing.
I would use my last breath to tell you, ‘I love you’.
Love is a fire.
But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.
( Joan Crawford )
I lost someone who didn’t love me.
But you lost someone who truly loved you.
The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.
( Nicholas Sparks )
The most important relationship in life is with yourself.
I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness.
Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.
( Elizabeth Gilbert )
Don’t ever cry for someone who doesn’t know the value of your tears.
There is always some madness in love.
But there is also always some reason in madness.
( Friedrich Nietzsche )
We must love ourselves enough and never lower our standards for anyone.
And when her lips met mine, I knew that I could live to be a hundred and visit every country in the world, but nothing would ever compare to that single moment when I first kissed the girl of my dreams and knew that my love would last forever.
( Nicholas Sparks )
What hurts you today will make you stronger tomorrow.
You can’t measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange.
( Milan Kundera )
Never be sad for what is over, just be glad that it was once yours.
Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
And when it subsides, you have to make a decision.
You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.
( Louis de Bernieres )
Love is what makes two people sit in the middle of a bench when there is plenty of room at both the ends.
Between that which exists and that which does not is the space called love.
Don’t always believe what you are told about another woman.
Rumours either come from a man who can’t have her,
Or from a woman who can’t compete with her.
( Alfred Hookins, 1892-1956 )
Love is like water.
We can fall in it, we can drown in it, and we can’t live without it.
Take time to be sure.
But be sure not to take too much time.
You know you’re in love when you finally meet the one who will make you put down that book and live your own fairytale.
( Torin N. Tabor )
When you’re in love make sure you really are in love and not just in love with the idea of being in love.
Keep love in your heart.
A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring.
( Oscar Wilde )
If someone you love hurts you, cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.
There is only one kind of love.
But there are thousands of different copies.
I learned the real meaning of love.
Love is absolute loyalty.
People fade, looks fade, but loyalty never fades.
You can depend so much on certain people, you can set your watch by them.
And that’s love, even if it doesn’t seem very exciting.
( Sylvester Stallone )
And suddenly, all the love songs were about you.
I fell in love the way you fall asleep.
Slowly, and then all at once.
( John Green )
Love cannot be found where it doesn’t exist.
Nor can it be hidden where it truly does.
If you think I’m happy when you’re not around, it’s because I’m thinking of you.
( Jamie McGuire )
It takes a minute to like someone, and an hour to love someone.
But to forget someone takes a lifetime.
I would die for you.
But I won’t live for you.
( Stephen Chbosky )
Some people will die for love, others will die because they lost it.
To love a man enough to help him, you have to forfeit the warm, self-righteous glow that comes from judging.
( Ron Hall )
The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.
You give them a piece of you.
They didn’t ask for it.
They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore.
Love takes hostages.
It gets inside you.
It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.
Not just in the imagination.
Not just in the mind.
It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.
I hate love.
( Neil Gaiman )
Love wasn’t put in your heart to stay.
Love isn’t love till you give it away.
If you can’t cope, I will dry your eyes.
I will fight your fight.
I will hold you tight and I won’t let go.
( Rascal Flatts )
You make me laugh at things that are not funny.
You make me smile without actually being there.
The very essence of romance is uncertainty.
( Oscar Wilde )
It’s silly of me to think you could fall in love with someone like me.
You looked so beautiful today.
I’m going to remember what you looked like forever.
( James Patterson )
True love is like ghosts.
Which everyone talks about but few have seen.
It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know.
( Eleanor Roosevelt )
In an instant and forever, love can make a fool seem clever.
If you truly loved yourself, you could never hurt another.
( Buddha )
It’s very sad when you feel all alone in a room full of people.
And maybe that was love.
Being so vulnerable and allowing someone else in so far they could hurt you, but they also give you everything.
( Christine Feehan )
This year has almost gone.
Not all our friends and family made it.
Never take for granted the people you love.
Looking back, I think the moments I’ve been in love have been the best moments in my life.
It’s a God-given gift when you fall in love.
Nobody really falls in love more than twice or three times in their lives.
It’s an incredible feeling.
It doesn’t necessarily last that long but it’s so euphoric and all-encompassing.
It can also be dangerous because you’d do anything.
You’re out of control, high on the most blissful drug in the world.
( Charlotte Rampling )
With you I learned to trust.
You look behind my eyes and see into my soul.
People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit.
Feelings are disturbing.
( Jim Morrison )
The first time I saw you it felt as if we had already met.
We must have been meant to be.
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.
( Andre Gide )
A day spent with those we love, with dreaming, and sunsets, and refreshing breezes, cannot be bettered.
Listen to the people who love you.
Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it.
( Andrew Solomon )
In life, you will meet two types of people.
Those who build you up, and those who will tear you down.
You will thank both of them for making you stronger.
Parents were the only ones obligated to love you.
From the rest of the world you had to earn it.
( Ann Brashares )
Just in case no one told you today.
You ARE good enough.
A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.
( Kurt Vonnegut )
