Short Cute Love Quotes DefinitionSource(Google.com.pk)
No one can genuinely love the world, which is too large to love entire. To love all the world at once is pretense or dangerous self-delusion. Loving the world is like loving the idea of love, which is perilous because, feeling virtuous about this grand affection, you are freed from the struggles and the duties that come with loving people as individuals.
DEAN KOONTZ, Odd Hours
What is more humiliating than finding the object of your love unworthy?
JEANETTE WINTERSON, The Passion
If you grew up in a house where you weren't loved, you didn't know there was an alternative.
JEFFREY EUGENIDES, The Marriage Plot
I don't love you any less, but I can't love you anymore.
LYLE LOVETT, "I Can't Love You Anymore"
Love is a very difficult -- occupation. You got to work at it, man. It ain't a thing every Tom, Dick and Harry has got a true aptitude for.
TENNESSEE WILLIAMS, Period of Adjustment
There's always a moment when you start to fall out of love, whether it's with a person or an idea or a cause, even if it's one you only narrate to yourself years after the event: a tiny thing, a wrong word, a false note, which means that things can never be quite the same again.
DOUGLAS ADAMS, The Salmon of Doubt
It is always possible to bind together a considerable number of people in love, so long as there are other people left over to receive manifestations of their aggressiveness.
SIGMUND FREUD, Civilization and Its Discontents
Love never goes away; it just changes form.
PAMELA ANDERSON, Esquire, Jan. 2005
If somebody says "I love you" to me, I feel as though I had a pistol pointed at my head. What can anybody reply under such conditions but that which the pistol holder requires? "I love you, too."
KURT VONNEGUT, Wampeters, Foma and Granfalloons
Near even a candle, the visible heat.
So it is with a person in love.
JANE HIRSHFIELD, "The Visible Heat"
Love life seems to be that factor which requires the largest quantity of magical tinkering.
ISAAC ASIMOV, Foundation and Empire
When we are in love, our love is too big a thing for us to be able together to contain it within ourselves. It radiates towards the loved one, finds there a surface which arrests it, forcing it to return to its starting-point, and it is this repercussion of our own feeling which we call the other's feelings and which charms us more then than on its outward journey because we do not recognise it as having originated in ourselves.
MARCEL PROUST, Within a Budding Grove
A love affair begins with a fantasy. For instance, that the beloved will always be there.
AMY HEMPEL, "The Dog of the Marriage"
What is love? There is nothing in the world, neither man nor Devil nor any thing, that I hold as suspect as love, for it penetrates the soul more than any other thing. Nothing exists that so fills and binds the heart as love does. Therefore, unless you have those weapons that subdue it, the soul plunges through love into an immense abyss.
UMBERTO ECO, The Name of the Rose
Love won't be tampered with, love won't go away. Push it to one side and it creeps to the other. Throw it in the garbage and it springs up clean. Try to root it out and it only flourishes. Love is a weed, a dandelion that you poison from your heart. The taproots wait. The seeds blow off, ticklish, into a part of the yard you didn't spray. And one day, though you worked, though you prodded out each spiky leaf, you lift your eyes and dozens of fat golden faces bob in the grass.
