-Socrates, quoted in Plato, Phaedrus When desire, having rejected reason and overpowered judgment which leads to right, is set in the direction of the pleasure which beauty can inspire, and when again under the influence of its kindred desires it is moved with violent motion towards the beauty of corporeal forms, it acquires a surname from this very violent motion, and is called love. -Socrates, quoted in Plato, Phaedrus

-Leo Tolstoy Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source. -Leo Tolstoy

-William Hazlitt I do not think that what is called Love at first sight is so great an absurdity as it is sometimes imagined to be. We generally make up our minds beforehand to the sort of person we should like, grave or gay, black, brown, or fair; with golden tresses or raven locks; and when we meet with a complete example of the qualities we admire, the bargain is soon struck. -William Hazlitt

-William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream Mine ear is much enamoured of thy note;
So is mine eye enthrallèd to thy shape;
And thy fair virtue's force perforce doth move me
On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee. -William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

-Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live. -Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

-Edmond de Goncourt Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence. -Edmond de Goncourt

-John Lennon We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it. -John Lennon

-Karen Sunde To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven. -Karen Sunde
