Four years ago, I created a homemade book for my wife with all these quotes about Love from our favorite TV Shows and movies and books and then I added to it great quotes about love from history or just great quotes about love from anyone. The past three years, I’ve shared a few from the book around the holidays.
Part 1 is here.
Part 2 is here.
Part 3 is here.
Part 4 is here.
Part 5 is here.
If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
‘Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
Jim Croce, Time In A Bottle
If there’s any kind of magic in this world, it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something. I know, it’s almost impossible to succeed, but… who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt.
It has made me better loving you… it has made me wiser, and easier, and brighter. I used to want a great many things before, and to be angry that I did not have them. Theoretically, I was satisfied. I flattered myself that I had limited my wants. But I was subject to irritation; I used to have morbid sterile hateful fits of hunger, or desire. Now I really am satisfied, because I can’t think of anything better.
Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady
All I have are the choices I make, and I choose her, come what may.
The Adjustment Bureau
Sex without love has its place, and it’s pretty cool, but when you have it hand in hand with deep commitment and respect and caring, it’s 9,000 times better.
If you loved someone, you loved him, and when you had nothing else to give, you still gave him love.
George Orwell, 1984
Never close your lips to those whom you have already opened your heart.
But if I am worthy of it you will always love me;
And if there be anything good and pure in me,
It will be proved by my always loving you.
Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
The best things in life make you sweaty.
Edgar Allen Poe
At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.
Nobody really thinks it will work, do they?
You just described every great success story.
I hope this holiday is a good one no matter where you are or who you might share it with.
