Love Quotes

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. 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. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two" 
 (Captain Corelli's Mandolin)

"It is probably not love that makes the world go around, but rather those mutually supportive alliances through which partners recognize their dependence on each other for the achievement of shared and private goals" (Fred Allen)

"Forgiveness is the final form of love"
 (Reinhold Niebuhr)

"Love is not weakness. It is strong. Only the sacrament of marriage can contain it" 
(Boris Patersnak)

"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend" 
(Martin Luther King)

"Love is like a friendship caught on fire: In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable" 
(Bruce Lee)

"Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other"
 (Carl Jung)

"Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you' re just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU... The one who turns to his friends and says, thats her"

"True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart."
(Honore de Balzac)

I read the book back in the early '90s. I only recently saw the movie. the book was definitely better. there are other books as well. 'Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior' & 'The Journeys of Socrates'. Both of these i recommend if you appreciated the first book, 'Way of the Peaceful Warrior'.
