love quotes

#3750 Aristotle

For pleasure is a state of soul, and to each man that which he is said to be a lover of is pleasant.... Now for most men their pleasures are in conflict with one another because these are not by nature pleasant, but the lovers of what is noble find pleasant the things that are by nature pleasant; and virtuous actions are such... Happiness then is the best, noblest, and most pleasant thing in the world, and these attributes are not severed as in the inscription at Delos: Most noble is that which is justest, and best is health; but pleasantest is it to win what we love. .

Aristotle Quotes about love
#3801 Aristotle

The young have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations; moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great things—and that means having exalted notions. They would always rather do noble deeds than useful ones: Their lives are regulated more by moral feeling than by reasoning.... All their mistakes are in the direction of doing things excessively and vehemently. They overdo everything; they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else. .

Aristotle Quotes about love
#3842 Francis Bacon

For a man to love again where he is loved, it is the charity of publicans contracted by mutual profit and good offices; but to love a man's enemies is one of the cunningest points of the law of , and an imitation of the divine nature. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about love
#3862 Francis Bacon

Only charity admitteth no excess. For so we see, aspiring to be like God in power, the angels transgressed and fell; Ascendam, et ero similis altissimo: by aspiring to be like God in knowledge, man transgressed and fell; Eritis sicut Dii, scientes bonum et malum: but by aspiring to a similitude of God in goodness or love, neither man nor angel ever transgressed, or shall transgress. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about love
#3955 Francis Bacon

It is worthy the observing, that there is no passion in the mind of man, so weak, but it mates, and masters, the fear of death; and therefore, death is no such terrible enemy, when a man hath so many attendants about him, that can win the combat of him. Revenge triumphs over death; love slights it; honor aspireth to it; grief flieth to it; fear preoccupieth it. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about love
#3970 Francis Bacon

For there was never proud man thought so absurdly well of himself, as the lover doth of the person loved; and therefore it was well said, That it is impossible to love, and to be wise. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about love
#3971 Francis Bacon

For it is a true rule, that love is ever rewarded either with the reciproque, or with an inward and secret contempt. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about love
#3972 Francis Bacon

Nuptial love maketh mankind, friendly love perfecteth it, but wonton love corrupteth and embaseth it. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about love
#4001 Francis Bacon

It is the nature of extreme self-lovers, as they will set an house on fire, and it were but to roast their eggs. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about love
#4007 Francis Bacon

A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about love
#4351 Confucius

A scholar who loves comfort is not worthy of the name. .

Confucius Quotes about love
#4422 Ralph Waldo Emerson

He who is inisand is becoming wiser, sees newly every time he looks at the object beloved, drawing from it with his eyes and his mind those virtues which it possesses. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4425 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yet a man may love a paradox, without losing either his wit or his honesty. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4441 Ralph Waldo Emerson

There are two classes of poets — the poets by education and practice, these we respect; and poets by nature, these we love. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4466 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Four snakes gliding up and down a hollow for no purpose that I could see — not to eat, not for love, but only gliding. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4485 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The word liberty in the mouth of Mr. Webster sounds like the word love in the mouth of a courtesan. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4495 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The charming landscape which I saw this morning, is indubitably made up of some twenty or thirty farms. Miller owns this field, Locke that, and Manning the woodland beyond. But none of them owns the landscape. There is a property in the horizon which no man has but he whose eye can integrate all the parts, that is, the poet. This is the best part of these men's farms, yet to this their warranty-deeds give no title. To speak truly, few adult persons can see nature. Most persons do not see the sun. At least they have a very superficial seeing. The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child. The lover of nature is he whose inward and outward senses are still truly adjusted to each other; who has retained the spirit of infancy even into the era of . His intercourse with heaven and earth, becomes part of his daily food. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4523 Ralph Waldo Emerson

is all , and publishes itself to the . It will speak, though you were dumb, by its own miraculous organ. It will flow out of your actions, your manners, and your face. It will bring you friendships. It will impledge you to truth by the love and expectation of generous minds. By virtue of the laws of that Nature, which is one and perfect, it shall yield every sincere good that is in the soul, to the scholar beloved of earth and heaven. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4524 Ralph Waldo Emerson

And what fastens attention, in the intercourse of life, like any passage betraying affection between two parties? Perhaps we never saw them before, and never shall meet them again. But we see them exchange a glance, or betray a deep emotion, and we are no longer strangers. We understand them, and take the warmest interest in the development of the romance. All mankind love a lover. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4551 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members. Society is a joint-stock company, in which the members agree, for the better securing of his bread to each shareholder, to surrender the liberty and culture of the eater. The virtue in most request is conformity. Self-reliance is its aversion. It loves not realities and creators, but names and customs. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4554 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Truth is handsomer than the affectation of love. Your goodness must have some edge to it, — else it is none. The doctrine of hatred must be preached as the counteraction of the doctrine of love when that pules and whines. I shun father and mother and wife and brother, when my genius calls me. I would write on the lintels of the door-post, Whim. I hope it is somewhat better than whim at last, but we cannot spend the day in explanation. Expect me not to show cause why I seek or why I exclude company. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4572 Ralph Waldo Emerson

I must be myself. I cannot break myself any longer for you, or you. If you can love me for what I am, we shall be the happier. If you cannot, I will still seek to deserve that you should. I will not hide my tastes or aversions. I will so trust that what is deep is holy, that I will do strongly before the sun and moon whatever inly rejoices me, and the heart appoints. If you are noble, I will love you; if you are not, I will not hurt you and myself by hypocritical attentions. If you are true, but not in the same truth with me, cleave to your companions; I will seek my own. I do this not selfishly, but humbly and truly. It is alike your interest, and mine, and all men's, however long we have dwelt in lies, to live in truth. Does this sound harsh to-day? You will soon love what is dictated by your nature as well as mine, and, if we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4650 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Give all to love; Obey thy heart; Friends, kindred, days, Estate, good fame, Plans, credit, and the muse; Nothing refuse. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4651 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Though thou loved her as thyself, As a self of purer clay, Tho' her parting dims the day, Stealing grace from all alive, Heartily know, When half-gods go, The gods arrive. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4656 Ralph Waldo Emerson

I like a church, I like a cowl, I love a prophet of the soul, And on my heart monastic aisles Fall like sweet strains or pensive smiles; Yet not for all his faith can see, Would I that cowled churchman be. Why should the vest on him allure, Which I could not on me endure? .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4670 Ralph Waldo Emerson

What point of morals, of manners, of economy, of philosophy, of religion, of taste, of the conduct of life, has he not settled? What mystery has he not signified his knowledge of? What office, or function, or district of man's work, has he not remembered? What king has he not taught state, as Talma taught Napoleon? What maiden has not found him finer than her delicacy? What lover has he not outloved? What sage has he not outseen? What gentleman has he not instructed in the rudeness of his behavior? .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4704 Ralph Waldo Emerson

If I could put my hand on the north star, would it be as beautiful? The sea is lovely, but when we bathe in it, the beauty forsakes all the near water. For the imagination and senses cannot be gratified at the same time. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4707 Ralph Waldo Emerson

There is always a best way of doing everything, if it be to boil an egg. Manners are the happy ways of doing things; each once a stroke of genius or of love, — now repeated and hardened into usage. They form at last a rich varnish, with which the routine of life is washed, and its details adorned. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4730 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Though love repine, and reason chafe, There came a voice without reply, — "'Tis man's perdition to be safe, When for the truth he ought to die." .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4739 Ralph Waldo Emerson

A ruddy drop of manly blood The surging sea outweighs, The world uncertain comes and goes; The lover rooted stays. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4803 Ralph Waldo Emerson

And every man, in love or pride, Of his fate is ever wide. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4859 Ralph Waldo Emerson

All mankind love a lover. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about love
#4897 Saddam Hussein

Great Iraqi men and women, members of the families of the martyrs, You have offered the homeland the best thing you could afford. Thus you have come to merit love and gratitude from all Iraqis and from its plains, mountains, skies and waters. You are good sons of this country. You have offered to the country great men who have averted harm from the country and paved its way to glory and greatness. .

Saddam Hussein Quotes about love
#4910 Joan of Arc

Of the love or hatred God has for the English, I know nothing, but I do know that they will all be thrown out of France, except those who die there. .

Joan of Arc Quotes about love
#5043 Bill Gates

The finest pieces of software are those where one individual has a complete sense of exactly how the program works. To have that, you have to really love the program and concentrate on keeping it simple, to an incredible degree. .

Bill Gates Quotes about love
#5092 Mark Twain

It is wonderful, the power of a faith like that, that can make multitudes upon multitudes of the old and weak and the young and frail enter without hesitation or complaint upon such incredible journeys and endure the resultant miseries without repining. It is done in love, or it is done in fear; I do not know which it is. No matter what the impulse is, the act born of it is beyond imagination marvelous to our kind of people, the cold whites. .

Mark Twain Quotes about love
#5202 Mark Twain

In the cotton States, after the war...the Jew came down in force, set up shop on the plantation, supplied all the negro's wants on credit, and at the end of the season was proprietor of the negro's share of the present crop and of part of his share of the next one. Before long, the whites detested the Jew, and it is doubtful if the negro loved him. .

Mark Twain Quotes about love
#5248 Mark Twain

Death, the only immortal who treats us all alike, whose pity and whose peace and whose refuge are for all — the soiled and the pure, the rich and the poor, the loved and the unloved. .

Mark Twain Quotes about love
#5339 Karl Marx

Philosophy stands in the same relation to the study of the actual world as masturbation to sexual love. .

Karl Marx Quotes about love
#5361 Karl Marx

In political practice, therefore, they join in all coercive measures against the working class;and in ordinary life, despite the high-falutin phrases, they stoop to pick up the golden apples, and to barter truth, love, and honour for traffic in wool, beet-root sugar, and potato spirits. .

Karl Marx Quotes about love
#5408 Karl Marx

Is a fixed income not a good thing? Does not everyone love to count on a sure thing? Especially every petty-bourgeois, narrow-minded Frenchman? the 'ever needy' man? .

Karl Marx Quotes about love
#5428 Karl Marx

We see then, commodities are in love with money, but "the course of true love never did run smooth". .

Karl Marx Quotes about love
#5674 The Prophet

When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God." .

The Prophet Quotes about love
#5675 The Prophet

And is not time even as love is, undivided and paceless? .

The Prophet Quotes about love
#5676 The Prophet

When love beckons to you, follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. .

The Prophet Quotes about love
#5677 The Prophet

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. .

The Prophet Quotes about love
#5678 The Prophet

Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself. He threshes you to make you naked. He sifts you to free you from your husks. He grinds you to whiteness. He kneads you until you are pliant; And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart. But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing floor,Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. .

The Prophet Quotes about love
#5679 The Prophet

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself, Love possesses not nor would it be possessed: For love is sufficient unto love. .

The Prophet Quotes about love
#5680 The Prophet

When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God." And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. .

The Prophet Quotes about love
#5681 The Prophet

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself. But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving; To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy; to return home at eventide with gratitude; And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips. .
