We love with a love that was more than a love.
~Edgar Allan Poe
Love's mysteries in souls do grow. But yet the body is his book.
Thou art the star that guides me
Along life's changing sea.
And whate'er fate betides me,
This heart still turns to thee.
~George P. Morris
Now the rite is duly done,
Now the word is spoken,
And the spell has made us one
Which may ne'er be broken.

Two human loves make one divine.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
One half of me is yours, the other half yours-
Mine own, I would say; but if mine, then yours,
And so all yours!
God hath made nothing single.
The world for me,
And all the world can hold, is circled by your arms.
~James Weldon Johnson
A heart that loves is always young
Love is promise, love is a souvenir. Once given, never forgotten, never let it disappear
True love never grows old
Your love to me was like an unread book
~Countee Cullen, Poet
For what is love itself, for the one we love best? An enfolding of immeasurable cares, which yet are better than any joys outside our love.

A woman who is loved always has success
~Vicki Baum, Austrian Novelist
To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides

'Tis better to have loved and lost, then to never have loved at all
~Lord Alfred Tennyson
There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
True love's the gift which God has given, to man alone beneath the heaven
For news of the heart, ask the face
Eternity was in our lips and eyes; Bliss in our brows bent
~Cleopatra (Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra)
Love is a friendship set to music
~E Joseph Cossman
Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving anything in return
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition
Love in its essence is spiritual fire
Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves.
~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, French Jesuit Priest
Life is a flower of which love is the honey
Today I begin to understand what love is. 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 know love to be: incompleteness in absence.
~Alexandre Hazen Dornback
There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer; no disease that enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem.
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble; how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
~Bible, I Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is friendship set to music.
~E. Joseph Crossmann
Love is the flower you've got to let grow.
One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love.
The first duty of love - is to listen
I spread out the days before me - the days we have spent together - some bright as frost stars, some glowing with an opalescent magic, some cool as water-tumbled pebbles, some flashing with fire. What would they have been without you? Dates crossed off on a calendar.
~Marion C. Garretty
A husband is a man who when someone tells him he is hen-pecked, answers, yes, but I am pecked by a good hen.
Gladly I'll live in a poor mountain hut,
Spin, sew and till the soil in any weather,
And wash in the cold mountain stream, if but
We dwell together.
When two people are at one in their inmost hearts,
They shatter even the strength of iron or of bronze.
And when two people understand each other in their inmost hearts,
Their words are sweet and strong, like the fragrance of orchids.
Behind every great man there is a surprised woman.
Who so findeth a wife, findeth a good thing
The man who says his wife can't take a joke, forgets that she took him
I think men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage. They've experienced pain and bought jewelry.
