Life is a game and true love is a trophy.
Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
Romance is tempestuous. Love is calm.
That’s how you know you love someone, I guess, when you can’t experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it, too.
Kaui Hart Hemmings
True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding.
Ellen G. White
Luck is when you love someone and they love you back the same.
The thing is that love gives us a ringside seat on somebody else’s flaws, so of course you’re gonna spot some things that kinda need to be mentioned. But often the romantic view is to say, ‘If you loved me, you wouldn’t criticise me.’ Actually, true love is often about trying to teach someone how to be the best version of themselves.
Alain de Botton
Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
Love is the answer to most of life’s questions.
You are still the kindest thing that ever happened to me, even if that is not how our tale is told.
What is a friend? We probably all have our own definitions. For me, it’s someone I don’t feel alone with. Who doesn’t bore me. Whose life I connect with and who takes reciprocal interest in my life. It’s someone I feel comfortable turning to when I need to be talked off the ledge, and for whom I am glad to return the favor. Just a few people in my life fit that bill.
To love is to recognize yourself in another.
Of all the things I have done, I am most proud of our relationship, of picking up the pieces of investing in each other again and again…
There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.
