My Favorite Quotes on Love--By Linda Kozar

This post is a bit quirky, but what else would you expect from me? The following love quotes are on my Bookish Desires blog (a blog about reading, writing and everything in between). 

My Favorite Love Quotes and why...

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind. And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
~William Shakespeare, Mid-Summer Night's Dream, 1595
They say love is blind, but falling in love with a donkey is not a good way to prove it. (Hopefully most of you are familiar with this play or I'm doomed).

I love you - those three words have my life in them. 
~ by Alexandrea to Nicholas III ~
Simply put. Czar Nicholas said it said it of his beautiful wife and royal consort. Ah, romance.

I'd like to run away 
From you, 
But if you didn't come 
And find me ... 
I would die. 
~ by Shirley Bassey 
We all have arguments and disagreements with our spouses, but finding, forgiving and loving one another enough to work things out is true love

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. ~Albert Einstein
Even Einstein couldn't figure out love. 

Ah me! Love can not be cured by herbs. ~Ovid
There's nothing worse than loving someone who doesn't love you back. If only there was a way to forget you ever met that person. The film, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" explored this possibility. 

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving. ~Kahlil Gibran
This bit sounds like a good-looking, long-haired artsy guy in college. You know the kind. He spouts off all this flowery romantic stuff. But he's just another loser with a better vocabulary than most. 

Do I love you because you're beautiful,
Or are you beautiful because I love you?
~Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Cinderella
Well said.

Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense. ~Mark Overby
Love will passionately defend itself! Think Romeo and Juliet.

Forget love - I'd rather fall in chocolate! ~Sandra J. Dykes

Sure chocolate can't take out the garbage, but it's always available to offer a Hershey's kiss when you're down.

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit. ~Peter Ustinov

Every successful marriage reaches the point where you and your spouse hardly have to talk any more. You can tell what the other is thinking with a look or a sigh. And the best part is--it's completely comfortable.

Hope you enjoyed these. Share a few of your own!

    Nancy Jill you know my opinion on birds and trees. Let's not start that again. As to love my favorite quote on love it's 1st Corinthians 13:4-7:

    "Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
