When You Love Someone
There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it.
– Ernest Hemingway
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
– Robert A. Heinlein
Waking up every day and loving someone who may or may not love us back, whose safety we can’t ensure, who may stay in our lives or may leave without a moment’s notice, who may be loyal to the day they die or betray us tomorrow – that’s vulnerability.
– Brene Brown
Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
– George Sand
Anxiety is love’s greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.
– Anais Nin
Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.
The love of the family, the love of one person can heal. It heals the scars left by a larger society. A massive, powerful society.
– Maya Angelou
Some white people hate black people, and some white people love black people, some black people hate white people, and some black people love white people. So you see it’s not an issue of black and white, it’s an issue of Lovers and Haters.
– Eden Ahbez
When you love someone all your saved up wishes start coming out.

Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.

Love is a serious mental disease.
There are realities we all share, regardless of our nationality, language, or individual tastes. As we need food, so do we need emotional nourishment: love, kindness, appreciation, and support from others.
– J. Donald Walters
I can still love an ex as a person, regardless if the breakup was bad. I would never wish anything negative on them. It takes more energy to hate them than to wish them well.
– Ashley Greene
The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.

Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching.
– Satchel Paige
You are loved just for being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success – none of that matters. No one can take this love away from you, and it will always be here.
– Ram Dass
My mom always said that there would be haters. Not everyone can love ya.

I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.
– Ray Bradbury
The love of husband and wife, which is creative of new human life, is a marvellously personal sharing in the creative love of God who brings into being the eternal soul that comes to every human being with the gift of human life.

No work or love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.

We must restore hope to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and preach peace.
