Love Quotes for Valentine’s Day and beyond

February 13, 2010

From Rob Brezny’s Astrology Newsletter comes a sweet set of love quotes perfect for expressing to your sweetie, or the one you hope to become your sweetie!

Your body needs to be held and to hold, to be touched and to touch. None of these needs is to be despised, denied, or repressed. But you have to keep searching for your body’s deeper need, the need for genuine love. Every time you are able to go beyond the body’s superficial desires for love, you are bringing your body home and moving toward integration and unity.
– Henri Nouwen

Love sometimes wants to do us a great favor: hold us upside down and shake all the nonsense out.
– Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky

We are pain and what cures pain, both. We are the sweet cold water and the jar that pours. I want to hold you close like a lute, so that we can cry out with loving. Would you rather throw stones at a mirror? I am your mirror and here are the stones.
– Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks

I love you between shadow and soul. I love you as the plant that hasn’t bloomed yet, and carries hidden within itself the light of flowers. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. Because of you, the dense fragrance that rises from the earth lives in my body, rioting with hunger for the eternity of our victorious kisses.
– Pablo Neruda, translated by Stephen Tapscott

The desire to force love to live only in its most positive form is what causes love ultimately to fall over dead.
– Clarissa Pinkola Estes

For a relationship to stay alive, love alone is not enough. Without imagination, love stales into sentiment, duty, boredom. Relationships fail not because we have stopped loving but because we first stopped imagining.
– James Hillman

Your face is true and your hair is perfect and I love you. You make boats in my dreams and you speak without words and I love you. Your fears unnerve me and your questions amuse me and I love you.  I love you not only for who you are, but for the interesting person I become when I’m with you. I say I love you and love you and love you until the words become the constant song of your voice in my head and the original ache
of memory in my soul. I love you more than life and death, more than everything that’s in between the light and the dark. Do you believe me? Try harder. Do you believe me now? I’m always with you, which is why I know you will never abandon yourself.”
– *PRONOIA*
