We cannot hold anything back from love: there must be a willingness to offer all of ourselves into the fire – even if it breaks our hearts; even if we are devastated by the power and immensity of its beauty, there must be the willingness to allow love to ravage us. - Brandon Bays

Among men and women, those in love do not always announce themselves with declarations and vows. But they are the ones who weep when you’re gone. Who miss you every single night, especially when the sky is so deep and beautiful, and the ground so very cold. - Alice Hoffman

The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration. - Pearl S. Buck

The depth of the love of parents for their children cannot be measured. It is like no other relationship. It exceeds concern for life itself. The love of a parent for a child is continuous and transcends heartbreak and disappointment. - James E. Faust

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. - Ann Landers

We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love – true love. - Robert Fulghum

You can’t force love, I realized. It’s there or it isn’t. If it’s not there, you’ve got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you’ve got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love. - Richelle Mead

Don’t fall in love so easily; it’s best to take your time. Love is built on trust, and trust is built on acceptance. Acceptance is built on friendship and a strong friendship takes time to build. - Unknown
