*Singing in Johnny ‘Itch’ Fox’s voice* “I got love, I got so much love, love in my heart, and this feeling I can’t let it go…”
Today, we’re bringing you quotes about love. These are culled from books, movies, songs etc. Some of them are funny, cheesy or cynical, and some will leave you with a smile on your face thinking: “Awwwww, that’s so cute.”
“…What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.”
“Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; re-made all the time, made new.”
– Ursula le Guin
“We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That’s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.”
– The Wise Man’s Fear
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear.”
– 1 John 4:18
“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” (Especially in this season)
– Charles M. Schulz
“I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you, not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me.”
– Roy Croft
Say That One More Time, Please
“My heart is, and always will be, yours.”
– Sense and Sensibility
“My love for you is past the mind, beyond my heart, and into my soul.”

“When I saw you
I was afraid of meeting you.
When I met you
I was afraid of kissing you.
When I kissed you
I was afraid of loving you.
Now that I love you
I am afraid of losing you.”
– Silard Somorjay
“Don’t forget I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”
– Notting Hill
“When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.”
– Edmond de Goncourt and Jules de Goncourt
Who Hurt You?
“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, Jr.
“To be in love is merely to be in a state of perceptual anesthesia.”
– H.L. Mencken
The Reality of Love
“And think not that you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.”
– Khalil Gibran
“Love makes you do the wacky.”
– Buffy the Vampire Slayer
