"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must
not love. But then one suffers from not loving.
Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to
suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to
love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering
makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must
love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much
happiness. I hope you're getting this down."
- Woody Allen
Love is the passionate and abiding
desire on the part of two or more people to produce together
conditions under which each can be and spontaneously
express, his real self; to produce together an intellectual
soil and an emotional climate in which each can flourish,
far superior to what either could achieve alone.
Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that
each include the other, each is enriched by the other.
True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It
is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is
seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.
--Honore de Balzac
Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give
oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce
love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and
whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
