“Love is not a habit, a commitment, or a debt. It isn’t what romantic songs tell us it is – love simply is.”
– Paulo Coelho

Love Is Not a Habit

 

“Would you mind repeating that? I’m afraid I might have lost my wits altogether and just hallucinated what I’ve longed to hear.”
– Jeaniene Frost

“So long as we love we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I would almost say that we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.”
– Robert Louis Stevenson

“This time when we kiss, I feel it in the pit of my stomach, I feel it in my heart. And I realize love isn’t about sex. It’s about connection.”
– Ellen Hopkins

“Like some wines our love could neither mature nor travel.”
– Graham Greene

“How far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?”
– Nicholas Sparks

“There are memories that time does not erase… Forever does not make loss forgettable, only bearable.”
– Cassandra Clare

“If love had feathers and tasted like dog food, then I suggest you wear shoes with your banana pudding. (This statement also defines my political beliefs).”
– Jarod Kintz

“Love cannot be forced, love cannot be coaxed and teased. It comes out of heaven, unasked and unsought.”
– Pearl S. Buck

“This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It’s knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work.”
– Mitch Albom

“Love is a luxury.”
“No. Love is an element.”
An element. Like air to breathe, earth to stand on.”
– Laini Taylor

“There could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison”
– Jane Austen

“To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they so clearly see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too. (20)”
– Victoria Moran

“V-Day…if you need this one day in a year to show everyone else you truly care for “your loved one” I think it’s quite stupid. I hate this commercialism. It’s all artificial, and has nothing to do with real love.”
– Jess C. Scott

“I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life”
– Savage Garden

“The way you’re singing in your sleep
The way you look before you leap
The strange illusions that you keep
You don’t know
But I’m noticing

The way your touch turns into arcs
The way you slide into the dark
The beating of my open heart
You don’t know
But I’m noticing”
– David Levithan
