  • And then to sleep with a prayer
  • For the beloved in your heart
  • And a song of praise upon your lips.
    ~ by Gibran Kahlil Gibran ~

    ~ by John Wayne Schlatter ~

    --------------------------------------------------

    Opposites attract, but after marriage, opposites attack. Most of the time, we are attracted to people who don't have the things that we have. Incompatibility is why we get married, but it's also used as a reason to divorce.
    Incompatibility is just a lack of communication. If we just try to love [our spouse] the way we want to be loved, we are in trouble. Unless you communicate, it's difficult to know how to love another person.
    ~ by Dr. Charles Lowery

    -------------------------------------------

    Love withers with predictability; its very essence is surprise and amazement. To make love a prisoner of the mundane is to take its passion and lose it forever.
    ~ by Leo Buscaglia ~

    ----------------------------------------------

    Smile at each other, smile at your wife,
    smile at your husband, smile at your children,
    smile at each other--it doesn't matter who it is--
    and that will help you to grow up in greater love
    for each other.
    ~ by Mother Teresa ~

    --------------------------------------------

    A man falls in love through his eyes,
    a woman through her ears.
    ~ by Woodrow Wyatt ~

    --------------------------------------------

    love sees but doesn't mind.
    ~ by Author unknown ~

    --------------------------------------------

    Love is sometimes denied, sometimes lost,
    sometimes unrecognized, but in the end,
    always found with no regrets, forever valued

    Sometimes we let affection,
    go unspoken,
    Sometimes we let our love
    go unexpressed,
    Sometimes we can't find words to tell
    our feelings,
    Especially towards those
    we love the best.
    ~ by Author unknown ~

    -----------------------------------------------

    The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase.

It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.
    ~ by Sir Hugh Walpole ~

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
    ~ by Erich Fromm ~

    -----------------------------------------

    Think about it, there must be higher love
    Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above
    Without it, life is a wasted time
    Look inside your heart, I'll look inside mine.
    ~ by Steve Winwood ~

    ------------------------------------------

    Love does not consist in gazing at each other
    but in looking together in the same direction.
    ~ by Antoine de Saint-Exupery ~

    ---------------------------------------

    You come to love not by finding the perfect person,
    but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

    True happiness and a fullness of joy can be found only in the tender and intimate relationships of the family.

    ~ by James J. Jones Ph.D. ~

    -----------------------------------------------

    The most precious possession that ever comes to a man in this world is a woman's heart.
    ~ by Josiah G. Holland ~

    ----------------------------------------------

    What we need to know about loving is no great mystery. We all know what constitutes loving behavior; we need but act upon it, not continually question it. Over-analysis often confuses the issue and in the end brings us no closer to insight. We sometimes become too busy classifying, separating, and examining, to remember that love is easy. It's we who make it complicated.
    ~ by Leo Buscaglia ~

    ------------------------------------------

    Romantic love reaches out in little ways, showing attention and admiration. Romantic love remembers what pleases a woman, what excites her, and what surprises her. Its actions whisper: you are the most special person in my life.
    ~ by Charles Stanley ( A Man's Touch) ~

    --------------------------------------------

    From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.

    ~ by Leo Buscaglia ~

    -----------------------------------------

    My heart to you is given:

    We'll lock them up together,
    And throw away the key.
    ~ by Frederick Saunders ~

    -----------------------------------------

    Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
    Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
    Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
    They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.
    ~ by Flavia Weedn ~
