The greatest gift a parent can give a child is unconditional love. As a child wanders and strays, finding his bearings, he needs a sense of absolute love from a parent. There’s nothing wrong with tough love, as long as the love is unconditional.
George Herbert Walker Bush
Who dares deny that this is true: The whole is more than all its parts? A whole love than divided love, Or than half love from fifty hearts? Yet who dare either this deny: The part is more than is the whole? That treasures halved with one dear love
And, oh, how blessed is it thus to meet! To feel that vanished years have not estranged us, distance has not diminished love, that we are to each other even as we parted; to feel again the fond kiss, to hear once more the accents of a voice which to us h

And every time I do so love I am freed, at least a little, by the outgoing of love, from enslavement to that most intolerable of master, myself.
Bernard Iddings Bell
Who can give law to lovers? Love is a greater law to itself.

Are you ready to cut off your head and place your foot on it? If so, come; Love awaits you! Love is not grown in a garden, nor sold in the marketplace; whether you are a king or a servant, the price is your head, and nothing less. Yes, the cost of the el
At the beginning and at the end of love, the two lovers are embarrassed to find themselves alone.
Jean de La Bruyre
True love is night jasmine, a diamond in darkness, the heartbeat no cardiologist has ever heard. It is the most common of miracles, fashioned of fleecy clouds – a handful of stars tossed into the night sky.
Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope.

Whoever said love is blind is dead wrong. Love is the only thing that lets us see each other with the remotest accuracy.
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Love should be a vehicle allowed to travel without limitations.

Norman Vincent Peale
Fortune and love favor the brave.

As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.
