Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.

If you have it [Love], you don't need to have anything else, and if you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.
Real love stories never have endings.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love, you want the other person.
Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
I love you, not for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
I do not love you

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

that this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
Be good and you will be lonely.
In cities no one is quiet but many are lonely; in the country, people are quiet but few are lonely.
The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer.
