“When you have seen as much of life as I have, you will not underestimate the power of obsessive love.”
– J.K. Rowling

Obsessive Love

“She didn’t say it, I only thought she said it. So really it was my thought, my words, and not hers. How could I confuse “I love you” with “May I take your order?”
– Jarod Kintz

“One day spent with someone you love can change everything.”
– Mitch Albom

“Let me die the moment my love dies. Let me not outlive my own capacity to love. Let me die still loving, and so, never die.”
– Mary Zimmerman

“How can I be reasonable? To me our love was everything and you were my whole life. It is not very pleasant to realize that to you it was only an episode.”
– W. Somerset Maugham

“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”
– Dalai Lama

“What she had realised was that love was that moment when your heart was about to burst.”
– Stieg Larsson

“The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.”
– G.K. Chesterton

“There ain’t no way you can hold onto something that wants to go, you understand? You can only love what you got while you got it.”
– Kate DiCamillo

“I met an old lady once, almost a hundred years old, and she told me, ‘There are only two questions that human beings have ever fought over, all through history. How much do you love me? And Who’s in charge?”
– Elizabeth Gilbert

“I love you,” he whispered, and that was the moment he knew what he was going to do. When you loved someone, you put their needs before your own. No matter how inconceivable those needs were; no matter how fucked up; no matter how much it made you feel like you were ripping yourself into pieces.”
– Jodi Picoult

“What would you do if I kissed you right now?” I stared at his beautiful face and his beautiful mouth and I wanted nothing more than to taste it. “I would kiss you back.”
– Michelle Hodkin

“Have you ever lost yourself in a kiss? I mean pure psychedelic inebriation. Not just lustful petting but transcendental metamorphosis when you became aware that the greatness of this being was breathing into you. Licking the sides and corners of your mouth, like sealing a thousand fleshy envelopes filled with the essence of your passionate being and then opened by the same mouth and delivered back to you, over and over again – the first kiss of the rest of your life. A kiss that confirms that the universe is aligned, that the world’s greatest resource is love, and maybe even that God is a woman. With or without a belief in God, all kisses are metaphors decipherable by allocations of time, circumstance, and understanding”
– Saul Williams
