The art of being yourself at your best
is the art of unfolding your personality
into the person you want to be…
Be gentle with yourself,
learn to love yourself,
to forgive yourself,
for only as we have the right attitude
toward ourselves can we have
the right attitude toward others.
Love the moment,
and the energy of that moment
will spread beyond all boundaries.
You will find
as you look back upon your life
that the moments when
you have truly lived
are the moments when you have
done things in the spirit of love.
Love is the enchanted dawn of every heart.
Love is an endless act of forgiveness.
With love and patience,
nothing is impossible.
We need not think alike
to love alike.
Love doesn’t make the world go ’round.
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
It is best to love wisely, no doubt;
but to love foolishly is better
than not to be able to love at all.
Love is friendship set on fire.
To love another person
is to see the face of God.
Lovers don’t meet
somewhere along the way;
they are in each other all along.
True love is when
you can look into another person’s soul
and not fear what is found there.
Love is like playing the piano.
First you must learn to play by the rules,
then you must forget the rules
and play from your heart.
Do you promise to love me
the rest of my life?
No, I’ll love you the rest of mine.
When you realize you want to spend
the rest of your life with someone,
you want the rest of your life
to begin as soon as possible.
Love looks through a telescope;
envy, through a microscope.
The day will come when,
after harnessing space, the winds,
the tides and gravitation,
we shall harness for God t
he energies of love.
And on that day, for the second time
in the history of the world,
we shall have discovered fire.
The best way to know God
is to love many things.
Love is the triumph of imagination
The hunger for love
is much more difficult to remove
than the hunger for bread.
A crowd is not company;
and faces are but a gallery of pictures;
and talk but a tinkling cymbal,
where there is no love.
All I know of love
is that love is all there is.
If you have love in your life,
it can make up for a great many
things that are missing.
If you don’t have love in your life,
no matter what else there is,
it’s not enough.
Love is but the discovery
of ourselves in others,
and the delight in the recognition.
To love someone is to see
a miracle invisible to others.
To write a love letter
we must begin without knowing
what we intend to say,
and end without knowing
what we have written.
The sound of a kiss
is not so loud as that of a cannon,
but its echo lasts a great deal longer.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness,
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate,
only love can do that.
What most people need to learn in life
is how to love people and use things
instead of using people and loving things.
Love has nothing to do with what
you are expecting to get,
it’s what you are expected to give,
which is everything
The meeting of two personalities
is like the contact of two chemical substances.
If there is any reaction,
both are transformed.
I know that there are people
who do not love their fellow man,
and I hate people like that!
Teach only love,
for that is what you are.
Love is the only freedom in the world
because it so elevates the spirit
that the laws of humanity
and the phenomena of nature
do not alter its course.
When you’ve said all of the bad things
and all of the good things
you haven’t been saying,
you will find that what
you’ve really been withholding is,
“I love you.”
Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.
The Masters who have walked the planet
are those who have discovered
the secret of the relative world…
and refused to acknowledge its reality.
In short, masters are those
who have chosen only love.
In every instance. In every moment.
In every circumstance.
Even as they were being killed,
they loved their murderers.
Even as they were being persecuted,
they loved their oppressors.
Through the corridors of all human experience
has this Truth been echoed:
Love is the answer.
There is no disguise
which can hide love for long
where it exists,
or simulate it where it does not.
Life is a song.
Love is the music.
Nothing takes the taste
out of peanut butter
quite like unrequited love.
Don’t marry the person you can live with,
marry the person you can’t live without.
At the touch of Love
everyone becomes a poet.
You don’t have to go looking for love
when it is where you come from.
Love and magic
have a great deal in common.
They enrich the soul, delight the heart.
And they both take practice.
Love is a force more formidable
than any other.
It is invisible —
it cannot be seen or measured,
yet it is powerful enough
to transform you in a moment,
and offer you more joy than
any material possession could.
The first duty of love is to listen.
Life is a flower of which love is the honey.
The spiritual meaning of love
is measured by what it can do.
Love is meant to heal.
Love is meant to renew.
Love is meant to bring us closer to God.
Love is the beginning,
and the end of everything.
If you wish to be loved, love.
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
than never to have loved at all.
If you judge people,
you have no time to love them.
The only reward for love
is the experience of loving.
Love does not consist
of gazing at each other,
but in looking together
in the same direction.
Love is a well from which we can drink
only as much as we have put in,
and the stars that shine from it
are only our eyes looking in.
Tell me whom you love,
and I will tell you who you are.
The way to love anything
is to realize that it might be lost.
Never let a problem to be solved
become more important
than the person to be loved.
The worst prison is a closed heart.
Neither a lofty degree of intelligence
nor imagination nor both together
go to the making of genius.
Love, love, love,
that is the soul of genius.
If there is anything better
than to be loved, it is loving.
Love is letting go of fear.
There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear.
He who falls in love with himself
will have no rivals.
Being deeply loved by someone
gives you strength;
while loving someone deeply
gives you courage.
as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection.
All you need is love.
Love knows not its depth
until the hour of separation.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.
