The way to love anything is to realize that it may be lost.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
One word
Frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
That word is love.
Love is not breathlessness; It is not excitement; It is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love”, which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.
Louis de Bernieres

I almost can’t believe I’m going to make myself vulnerable to him again. But what is love but the most extreme and exquisite form of risk perception? I know that relationships don’t last. And yet, with him, the risk of not being with him is much worse than any other hurt I can imagine.

For what is love itself, for the one we love best? An enfolding of immeasurable cares which yet are better than any joys outside our love.
George Eliot
Deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.
Oscar Wilde
What is love? Sometimes it’s just letting yourself be who and what you are, and letting the person you’re supposed to love be who and what he is too. Or maybe what and who they are.
Laurell K. Hamilton
Have you fallen in love, Will Henry?” “That’s stupid.” “What is? Love, or my question?” “I don’t know.” “You don’t know? You’ve tried that trick once. What do you suppose it will work better the second time?” “I don’t love her. She bothers me.” “You have just defined the very thing you denied.
Rick Yancey

Charles Baudelaire
What is love of one’s country; is it hate of one’s uncountry? Then it’s not a good thing.
