I used to be a hopeless romantic – I fell in love with everyone I went out with.
Even if a unity of faith is not possible, a unity of love is.
Hans Urs von Balthasar
The main facts in human life are five: birth, food, sleep, love and death.
E. M. Forster
I did not just fall in love. I made a parachute jump.
A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.
At the end of the day, you know, love does not happen between two perfect people as much as we would wish.
Metaphors are dangerous. Love begins with a metaphor. Which is to say, love begins at the point when a woman enters her first word into our poetic memory.
Just as in earthly life lovers long for the moment when they are able to breathe forth their love for each other, to let their souls blend in a soft whisper, so the mystic longs for the moment when in prayer he can, as it were, creep into God.
Where love is concerned, too much is not even enough.
Romance is tempestuous. Love is calm.
