What is Love?

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
-Hamilton Wright Mabie

Love is like pi - natural, irrational, and VERY important.
-Lisa Hoffman

True love does not come by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
-Jason Jordan

I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love. You feel it in your heart. It is the common fiber of life, the flame of that heats our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives. It is our connection to God and to each other.
-Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
-The Wheel of Life (Scribner)

Looking back, I have this to regret, that too often when I loved, I did not say so.
-David Grayson

When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
-Elizabeth Bowen

To be loved, be lovable.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
-The Bible : 1 Corinthians 13:4

The man or woman you really love will never grow old to you. Through the wrinkles of time, through the bowed frame of years, you will always see the dear face and feel the warm heart union of your eternal love.
-Alfred Armand Montapert

Love is the thing that enables a woman to sing while she mops up the floor after her husband has walked across it in his barn boots.
-Hoosier Farmer

Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
-Erich Fromm

Love is not automatic. It takes conscious practice and awareness, just like playing the piano or golf. However, you have ample opportunities to practice. Everyone you meet can be your practice session.

Love and magic have a great deal in common.
They enrich the soul, delight the heart.
And they both take practice.
-Nora Roberts

A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it.
-Frank A. Clark

The art of love... is largely the art of persistence.
-Albert Ellis

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
-Jean Anouilh

Love is... since the most stupid thing u did or the most beautiful one. Each one of us has it's own meaning of love and it's way to enjoy or suffer by love. What's my meaning of love? First of one, i should have lived it before. Greetings!
