I will love you as misfortune loves orphans... and as justice loves to sit and watch while everything goes wrong.
~ Lemony Snicket.
Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real. Love, and so art and morals, is the discovery of reality.
~ Iris Murdoch.
We need, in love, to practise only this: letting each other go. For holding on comes easily; we do not need to learn it.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke.
If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love our friends for their sakes rather than for our own.
~ Charlotte Brontë.
And when your fears subside/ And shadows still remain/ I know that you can love me/ When there’s no one left to blame/ So never mind the darkness/ We still can find a way/ Nothing lasts forever/ Even cold November rain.
~ Axl Rose.
All writing, all art, is an act of faith. If one tries to contribute to human understanding, how can that be called decadent? It’s like saying a declaration of love is an act of decadence. Any work of art...is an act of faith and therefore is an act of love.
~ Truman Capote.
I’ve no more business to marry Edgar Linton than I have to be in heaven; and if the wicked man in there had not brought Heathcliff so low, I shouldn’t have thought of it. It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him: and that, not because he’s handsome, Nelly, but because he’s more myself than I am.
~ Emily Brontë.
I saw my life branching out before me like the green fig tree in the story. From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn’t quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn’t make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet. \
~ Slyvia Plath.
The Great Stories are the ones you have heard and want to hear again. The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably. They don’t deceive you with thrills and trick endings. They don’t surprise you with the unforeseen. They are as familiar as the house you live in. Or the smell of your lover’s skin. You know how they end, yet you listen as though you don’t. In the way that although you know that one day you will die, you live as though you won’t.
~ Arundhati Roy.
It is not malice that draws me away,/ Draws me to renunciation, betrayal:/ It is weariness, I go for weariness of thee,/ Gold, ivory, flesh, love, God, blood, moon —/ I have become the expert of the catalogue./ My body once so familiar with glory,/ My body has become a museum:/This part remembered because of someone’s mouth,/ This because of a hand,/ This of wetness, this of heat./ Who owns anything he has not made?/ With your beauty I am as uninvolved/ As with horses’ manes and waterfalls./ This is my last catalogue./ I breathe the breathless/ I love you, I love you —/ And let you move forever.
~ Leonard Cohen.
Next to the defeated politician, the writer is the most vocal and inventive griper on earth. He sees hardship and unfairness wherever he looks. His agent doesn’t love him (enough). The blank sheet of paper is an enemy. The publisher is a cheapskate. The critic is a philistine. The public doesn’t understand him. His wife doesn’t understand him.
~ Peter Mayle.
I’ve heard there was a secret chord/ That David played, and it pleased the Lord/ But you don’t really care for music, do you?/ It goes like this/ The fourth, the fifth/ The minor fall, the major lift/ The baffled king composing Hallelujah/...Your faith was strong but you needed proof/ You saw her bathing on the roof/ Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you/ She tied you to a kitchen chair/ She broke your throne, and she cut your hair/ And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah/...Baby I have been here before/ I know this room, I’ve walked this floor/ I used to live alone before I knew you./ I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch/ Love is not a victory march/ It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah/...Maybe there’s a God above/ But all I’ve ever learned from love/ Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you/ It’s not a cry you can hear at night/ It’s not somebody who has seen the light/ It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah.
~ Leonard Cohen.
It has always seemed strange to me. The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
~ John Steinbeck.
Your cracked country lips, I still wish to kiss/ As to be by the strength of your skin/ Your magnetic movements still capture the minutes I’m in/ But it grieves my heart love, to see you tryin’ to be a part of/ A world that just don’t exist/ It’s all just a dream babe, a vacuum, a scheme, babe/ That sucks you into feelin’ like this./...I’ve heard you say many times that you’re better than no one/ And no one is better than you/ If you really believe that you know you have/ Nothing to win and nothing to lose./ From fixtures and forces and friends/ Your sorrow does stem/ That hype you and type you, making you feel/ That you gotta be just like them./ I’d forever talk to you but soon my words/ Would turn into a meaningless ring/ For deep in my heart I know there is no help I can bring/ Everything passes, everything changes/ Just do what you think you should do/ And someday maybe, who knows baby/ I’ll come and be crying to you.
~ Bob Dylan.
People love a happy ending. So every episode, I will explain once again that I don’t like people. And then Mal will shoot someone. Someone we like. And their puppy.
~ Joss Whedon.
The weight of the world is love. Under the burden of solitude... of dissatisfaction, the weight, the weight we carry is love.
~ Allen Ginsberg.
She walks in the loveliness she made,/ Between the apple-blossom and the water —/ She walks among the patterned pied brocade,/ Each flower her son, and every tree her daughter.
~ Vita Sackville-West.
I believe a strong woman may be stronger than a man, particularly if she happens to have love in her heart. I guess a loving woman is indestructible.
~ John Steinbeck.
He fell in love with himself at first sight and it is a passion to which he has always remained faithful.
~ Anthony Powell.
You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.
~ Maya Angelou.
A heat full of coldness, a sweet full of bitterness, a pain full of pleasantness, which maketh thoughts have eyes and hearts ears, bred by desire, nursed by delight, weaned by jealousy, killed by dissembling, buried by ingratitude, and this is love. Fair lady, will you any.
~ John Lyly.
I was in love with a beautiful blonde once, dear. She drove me to drink. That’s the one thing I’m indebted to her for.
~ W.C. Fields.
From childhood’s hour I have not been. As others were, I have not seen. As others saw, I could not awaken. My heart to joy at the same tone. And all I loved, I loved alone.
~ Edgar Allan Poe.
