Falling in love is like jumping off a really tall building. Your brain tells you it is not a good idea, but your heart tells you, you can fly.
|Shakespeare's Sonnet 116--via|
At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.
This is one of the miracles of love: It gives a power of seeing through its own enchantments and yet not being disenchanted.
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
"...I found him whom my soul loves; I held on to him and would not let him go..."
Song of Solomon 3:4
"And he took her in his arms and kissed her under the sunlit sky, and he cared not that they stood high upon the walls in the sight of many."
“In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
