On Love


Thoughts On Love
Love is the most important element of human life. All Dharm (religions) advocate for it. "Love others like yourself", if you can do it, there is no other greater Karm (action) than this in the whole life.

Love turns a blind eye to every fault.
--"Proverb" (10:12)
Means if you find a fault in somebody, it means you don't love him or her. Because in love even the faults seem like the quality of a person.

Better a dish of vegetable if love go with it, than a fat ox eaten in hatred.
--"Proverb" (15:17)

Many waters cannot quench love.
--"Songs of Solomon"

Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility, for it thinks all things lawful for itself and all things possible.
--Thomas A. Kempis

There are three things that last for ever, faith, hope and love; but the greatest of them of all is love.
--"I Corinthian (13:13)"

Love is a glass which shatters if you hold it too tightly or too loosely.
--A Russian proverb

There are three kinds of love, false, natural and married. False love is that which seeks its own, just as one loves gold, goods, honor or women outside of matrimony, contrary to God's command. Natural love is between father and children, brother and sister. But above them all is married love. It burns as a fire, and seeks nothing more than the mate. It says, "I wish not yours, I wish neither gold nor silver, neither this nor that, I want only you."
--Martin Luther
And above the married love is "love for everybody". Today people don't love each other that is why there is so much chaos in the world.

There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is the finger of God on a man's shoulder.
--Charles Morgan

Love starts in little ways…. It may begin the day we first share our thoughts with someone else… or help someone who needs us…. Or sometimes, it begins because, even without words, we understand how someone feels.
--Joan Walsh Anglund
You never know when love starts, so wait for it to start. Once it starts, you long for it. It kindles like fire.

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

You can derive so much joy in giving pleasure to someone, that you feel like thanking him.
--Henry de Montherlant
A glimpse of satisfaction on other's face compels you to think like this, because many times you just don't lose anything in giving a great pleasure to somebody else. But even if you have to lose a little bit to give a great pleasure to other person, give it, because your loss is not greater than his pleasure.

Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.

There is no disguise that can for long conceal love where it exists or simulate it where it does not.
--Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.
--Jules Renard, writer (1864-1910)

Absence is to love what wind is to fire. It extinguishes the small, it enkindles the great.

Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished.

A man is lucky if he is the first Love of a woman. And a woman is lucky if she is the last Love of a man -- strange but true.

I wrote on the door of heart, "Please do not enter it"
Love came smiling and said: "Sorry I am illiterate"
--Michael Paul

Loving someone doesn't need a reason
if you can explain why you love someone it's called 'like'
if you can't explain it's simply called 'love'

One can cross an ocean without wetting his legs but
Cannot cross his love and life without wetting his eyes...

Care is the sweetest form of love when someone says take care
It really means that you will stay in their heart till its last beat...

Affection is not measured when both take care of each other
it is measured when one ignores and the other still continues to care...
