What is Love?
Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it. Nicholas Sparks
True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen. Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard, or just think it’s gonna get on with itself. You gotta keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it, and be careful of it, and keep the flies off and see that it’s alright, and nurture it. John Lennon
Love is like a violin. The music may stop now and then, but the strings remain forever. June Masters Bacher
Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties. Jules Renard
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. Bruce Lee
Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning. Paulo Coelho
Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused. Paulo Coelho
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. Robert A. Heinlein
Love is . . . Being happy for the other person when they are happy, Being sad for the person when they are sad, Being together in good times, And being together in bad times. LOVE IS THE SOURCE OF STRENGTH. Susan Polis Schutz
Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses. Voltaire (not Lao Tzu)
Certain things in life simply have to be experienced – and never explained. Love is such a thing. Paulo Coelho
People fall in love without reason, without even wanting to. You can’t predict it. That’s love.
What Love is Not.
Love isn’t kind acts or gifts wrapped with a bow on top – although love may lead you to do these things. Love means tearing down the separateness and the boundaries between your heart feelings and another person. Love is just a feeling of togetherness and openness in your heart. Ken Keyes, Jr.
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but looking outward in the same direction. Antoine de Saint Exupery
Love doesn’t grow on trees like apples in Eden – it’s something you have to make. And you must use your imagination too. Joyce Cary
Love does not appear with any warning signs. You fall into it as if pushed from a high diving board. No time to think about what’s happening. It’s inevitable. An event you can’t control. A crazy, heart-stopping, roller-coaster ride that just has to take its course. Jackie Collins
So, what does love mean to you? How do you define it.
What It Feels Like Falling and Being in Love…
When you’re falling in love, you never notice it until you’ve already hit the ground. Terry Mark
There is that awful moment when you realize that you’re falling in love. That should be the most joyful moment, and actually it’s not. It’s always a moment that’s full of fear because you know, as night follows day, the joy is going to rapidly be followed by some pain or other. All the angst of a relationship. Helen Mirren
I love that feeling of being in love, the effect of having butterflies when you wake up in the morning. That is special. Jennifer Aniston
It was the strangest sensation, fallin’ in love. ‘Bout the only thing I compare it to would be jumpin’ off a big cliff. Once you’re past the edge, there ain’t no particular reason to be graspin’ for a line a safety. You just keep on fallin’ anyhow, so you might as well enjoy it the whole way down. Dorothy Garlock
Falling in love is not a spur of the moment thing. There wasn’t love at first sight as I always believed there to be. It crept and overpowered me. Once I was in its power, it was the most amazing feeling in the world. Eveli Acosta
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu
Why People are Afraid to Fall in Love…
Love is uncertain. It’s incredibly risky. And loving someone leaves us emotionally exposed. Yes, it’s scary, and yes, we’re open to being hurt, but can you imagine your life without loving or being loved? Brene Brown
I think sometimes when we find love we pretend it away, or ignore it, or tell ourselves we’re imagining it. Because it is the most painful kind of hope there is. Rae Carson
Love makes your soul crawl out of its hiding place. Zora Neale Hurston
If you love someone, then your freedom is curtailed. If you love someone, you give up much of your privacy. If you love someone, then you are no longer merely one person but half of a couple. To think or behave any other way is to risk losing that love. Laurell K. Hamilton
Feelings are constantly changing. None is dependable for long. You can love someone intensely today, and tomorrow or next month not feel a thing. Except perhaps for the feeling of doubt or depression that what was so beautiful could change so quickly. Barry Long
If You Love Someone…
The first duty of love is to listen. Paul Tillich
Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay. Dalai Lama XIV

If we want to be loved, the way to get it is to love. It is not only the very best method, but it is the only method. To receive love we must love because what we give out must come back. Lester Levenson
It would be impossible to love another person without first feeling love for yourself, because how could you give away something that you don’t have. Denis Waitley
