It takes courage to love

“Men spend their lives in anticipations, in determining to be vastly happy at some period when they have time. But the present time has one advantage over every other – it is our own. Past opportunities are gone, future have not come. We may lay in a stock of pleasures, as we would lay in a stock of wine; but if we defer the tasting of them too long, we shall find that both are soured by age.” – Charles Caleb Colton

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed.” – Henrik Ibsen

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” – Rumi

“You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.” – Oscar Wilde

“The very essence of romance is uncertainty.” – Oscar Wilde

“When you’re in love, truly in love, you never have to question it.” – Michael Faudet

“When love itself comes to kiss you, don’t hold back.” – Rumi

“Love doesn’t die; the men and women do.” – William Faulkner

“The more one judges, the less one loves.” – Honoré de Balzac

“Years of love have been forgotten, in the hatred of a minute.” – Edgar Allan Poe

“The sun loved the moon so much, he died every night just to let her breath.” – Unknown

“The art of love is largely the art of persistence.” – Albert Ellis

“Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.” – Paulo Coelho

“It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know. We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

“They muddy the water, to make it seem deep.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” – Edgar Allan Poe

“He in his madness prays for storms, and dreams that storms will bring him peace.” – Leo Tolstoy

“The passion for destruction is also a creative passion.” – Mikhail Bakunin

“One day we will be dead. But today I’ll give it my best not to blame, complain, drain. Today I’ll give my best not to regret or forget.” – James Altucher
