Observe constantly that all things take place by change, and accustom thyself to consider that the nature of the Universe loves nothing so much as to change the things which are, and to make new things like them.

The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.
Love's greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
So long as a person is capable of self-renewal they are a living being.
That's the risk you take if you change: that people you've been involved with won't like the new you. But other people who do will come along.
It seemed that each time we would become proficient at a given task there would be a change made for no apparent reason. It sometimes appeared that changes were made simply because sufficient time had elapsed since the last change. And then our efforts would begin again from the beginning.
Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible -- it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
Everyone admits that love is wonderful and necessary, yet no one agrees on just what it is.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love, you want the other person.
Never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it. Never neglect the little things.
It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.
Love is made by two people, in different kinds of solitude. It can be in a crowd, but in an oblivious crowd.
Oh, love is real enough; you will find it someday, but it has one archenemy -- and that is life.
Love, by its very nature, is unworldly, and it is for this reason rather than its rarity that it is not only apolitical but anti-political, perhaps the most powerful of all anti-political human forces.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
We must love one another or die.
In a great romance, each person plays a part the other really likes.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.
What I needed most was to love and to be loved, eager to be caught. Happily I wrapped those painful bonds around me; and sure enough, I would be lashed with the red-hot pokers or jealousy, by suspicions and fear, by burst of anger and quarrels.
We are not commanded (or forbidden) to love our mates, our children, our friends, our country because such affections come naturally to us and are good in themselves, although we may corrupt them. We are commanded to love our neighbor because our natural attitude toward the other is one of either indifference or hostility.
Break a vase, and the love that reassembles the fragments is stronger than that love which took its symmetry for granted when it was whole.
The enemy is like a woman, weak in face of opposition, but correspondingly strong when not opposed. In a quarrel with a man, it is natural for a woman to lose heart and run away when he faces up to her; on the other hand, if the man begins to be afraid and to give ground, her rage, vindictiveness and fury overflow and know no limit.
There is hope for all of us. Well, anyway, if you don't die you live through it, day in, day out.
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul -- and sings the tunes without the words -- and never stops at all.
The darkest day, If you live till tomorrow will have past away.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
A lie can run around the world before the truth can get its boots on.
Before you give up hope, turn back and read the attacks that were made on Lincoln.
Hope is the parent of faith.
Hope is a good breakfast but a bad supper.
Hope is the dream of a waking man.
Hope is the expectation that something outside of ourselves, something or someone external, is going to come to our rescue and we will live happily ever after.
Hope is a waking dream.
Being taken for granted can be a compliment. It means you've become a comfortable, trusted element in another person's life.
Remember that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have.
Hope is the best part of our riches.
Man partly is and wholly hopes to be.
Let hope inspire you, but let not idealism blind you. Proverb Don't look back, you can never look back.
Hope is the only universal liar who never loses his reputation for veracity.
Those who hope for no other life are dead even for this.
He that lives upon hope will die fasting.
To live without Hope is to Cease to live.
There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.
Every parent is at some time the father of the unreturned prodigal, with nothing to do but keep his house open to hope.
To the sick, while there is life there is hope.
To give a generous hope to a man of his own nature, is to enrich him immeasurably.
Where there is no vision, there is no hope.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
