Love quotes (273)

Sweet springtime is my time is your time is our time for springtime is love time and viva sweet love.
e e cummings   Category: Love

To know things as they are is better than to believe things as they seem.
Tom Wicker   Category: Love

Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each others cup but drink not of one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous but let each one of you be alone Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts but not into each others keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each others shadow.

Zora Neale Hurston   Category: Love

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee freely as men strive for Right; I love thee purely as they turn from Praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs and with my childhoods faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saintsI love thee with the breadth Smiles tears of all my life!and if God choose I shall but love thee better after death.
