"There is no such word as “loved.” Love has no past tense. If you ever stop loving someone then you never truly loved them in the first place."
- Brené Brown
"Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love."
- Gautama Buddha
"In the end these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?"
- Eleanor Roosevelt
"It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know. We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death."
“I find the best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead, help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.”― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience
- Gautama Buddha
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”
Te amo sin saber cómo, ni cuándo, ni de dónde, te amo directamente sin problemas ni orgullo: así te amo porque no sé amar de otra manera, sino así de este modo en que no soy ni eres, tan cerca que tu mano sobre mi pecho es mía, tan cerca que se cierran tus ojos con mi sueño. - Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XVII, 100 Love Sonnets. Translated by Stephen Tapscott
"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where, I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep."
- Alain de Botton, On Love.
“Perhaps it is true that we do not really exist until there is someone there to see us existing, we cannot properly speak until there is someone who can understand what we are saying in essence, we are not wholly alive until we are loved.”
“Find what you love and let it kill you.”- Charles Bukowski
