It All Adds Up
Quotes on St Valentine's Day, Love and Romance
Love is life's end (an end, but never ending)
All joys, all sweets, all happiness awarding;
Love is life's wealth (ne'er spent, but ever spending),
More rich by giving, taking by discarding;
Love's life's reward, rewarded in rewarding:
Then from thy wretched heart fond care remove;
Ah, should thou live but once love's sweets to prove,
Thou wilt not love to live unless thou live to love.
from "Brittains Ida", 1628
"Love is the only satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence."
- Erich Fromm 1900-1980
"Love is the magician, the enchanter, that changes worthless things to joy, and makes right-royal kings and queens of common clay. It is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts: but with it, earth is heaven and we are gods."
- R. G. Ingersoll 1833-1899
"Loving can make plain people beautiful."
- Linda Clark
"Love makes a subtle man out of a crude one, it gives eloquence to the mute, it gives courage the cowardly and makes the idle quick and sharp."
- Juan Ruiz
from "El Amor"
"When love is not madness, it is not love."
- Pedro Calderon De La Marca
from "El Mayor Monstruo Los Celos"
"Why did she love him? Curious fool - be still -
Is human love the growth of human will?"
- Lord Byron 1788-1824
"Love is a grave mental disease."
- Plato 427-347 BC
"Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age."
- Jeanne Moreau 1929
"The gratification of the senses soon becomes a very small part of that profound and complicated sentiment which we call Love. Love, on the contrary, is a universal thirst for a communion, not merely of the senses, but of our whole nature, intellectual, imaginative and sensitive. He who finds his antitype, enjoys a love perfect and enduring; time cannot change it, distance cannot remove it; the sympathy is complete."
- Benjamin Disraeli 1804-1881
from "Henrietta Temple"
