Love Quotes Of The Day

Love Quotes Of The Day Biography
A history of listening to Top 40 radio had left me with a ridiculous and clich├ęd notion of love. I had never entertained the feeling myself but knew that it meant never having to say you're sorry. It was a many-splendored thing. Love was a rose and a hammer. Both blind and all-seeing, it made the world go round.

DAVID SEDARIS, Naked

Enjoyment inflames love in some men, and extinguishes it in others: the wind that assists large vessels, upsets small ones.

NORMAN MACDONALD, Maxims and Moral Reflections

LOVE.--A sentiment we all entertain for ourselves, and occasionally imagine others entertain for us.

CHARLES EDWARD JERNINGHAM, The Maxims of Marmaduke

Love is an artful arrangement of artless pretensions, whereby we labor to appear innocent in what we desire to be most cunning.

NORMAN MACDONALD, Maxims and Moral Reflections

Though love and hatred are as opposites as fire and water, yet do they sometimes subsist in the breast together towards the same person; nay by their very opposition and desire to destroy each other, are they strengthened and increased.

FULKE GREVILLE, Maxims, Characters and Reflections

Looking back, I should have known better than to accompany Hugh to a love story. Such movies are always a danger, as unlike battling aliens or going undercover to track a serial killer, falling in love is something most adults have actually experienced at some point in their lives. The theme is universal and encourages the viewer to make a number of unhealthy comparisons, ultimately raising the question "Why can't our lives be like that?" It's a box best left unopened, and its avoidance explains the continued popularity of vampire epics and martial-arts extravaganzas.

DAVID SEDARIS, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

Violent people usually express their love of a thing by their hatred of its opposite.

NORMAN MACDONALD, Maxims and Moral Reflections

You can't make me love you.

NEIL GAIMAN, Coraline

Love will sacrifice more to others than friendship, but then it exacts more from them.

FULKE GREVILLE, Maxims, Characters, and Reflections

Love in a hut, with water and a crust,
Is--Love, forgive us!--cinders, ashes, dust;
Love in a palace is perhaps at last
More grievous torment than a hermit's fast.
JOHN KEATS, "Lamia"

At any rate, let us love for a while, for a year or so, you and me. That's a form of divine drunkenness that we can all try.

F. SCOTT FITZGERALD, "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz"

The great unrequited love tears open your heart to the beauty of the world, its small rivers and upland meadows. It also makes you kinder to the next hundred thousand persons who cross your path.

GARRISON KEILLOR, "Life's Variety Pack," A Prairie Home Companion, Nov. 3, 2009

Few people love with the violence they hate.

NORMAN MACDONALD, Maxims and Moral Reflections

To men of a certain type
The suspicion that they are incapable of loving
Is as disturbing to their self-esteem
As, in cruder men, the fear of impotence.
T. S. ELIOT, The Cocktail Party

Love can make people do funny things, inexplicable things. And thwarted love can turn some people into madmen--or madwomen. People who never had much of a grip on reality, sometimes they spin pretty illusions ... and when the illusion shatters, they become capable of anything.

SUSANNE ALLEYN, Game of Patience

Love leaped out in front of us like a murderer in an alley leaping out of nowhere, and struck us both at once.

MIKHAIL BULGAKOV, The Master and Margarita

What amazes me as I hit the motorway is not the fact that everyone loses someone, but that everyone loves someone. It seems like such a massive waste of energy--and we all do it, all the people beetling along between the white lines, merging, converging, overtaking. We each love someone, even though they will die. And we keep loving them, even when they are not there to love any more. And there is no logic or use to any of this, that I can see.
