                                                                                                                                                      -Lao Tzu

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways
                          -Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires;
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
                                                                                                  -Kahlil Gibran,

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
                                                                                                                                         -Helen Keller

I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart.
                                                                                                              -Alice Walker

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
                       -Pablo Neruda, "Love Sonnet"
