“Being in Love Changes Everything”


A good speech has a beginning, a middle and an end, the best example being ‘I love you.’” (Robert Brault)



“You may not be her first, her last, or her only.  She loved before she may love again.  But if she loves you now, what else matters?  She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can.  She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart.  So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give.  Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”   (Bob Marley)



“You know you have found love when you can’t find your way back.”   (Robert Brault)



“This fire that we call Loving is too strong for human minds.  But just right for human souls.”   (Aberjhani, Elemental:  The Power of Illuminated Love)



“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song.  At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”   (Plato)



“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.  I love you simply, without problems or pride:   I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”   (Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets)



“If I had to choose between loving you and breathing, I’d take my last breathe to say ‘I love you.’”   (Tyler Beene)



“You know you are in love when you notice change, when the mysterious power that quickens your heart begins to inhabit your everyday life.  Something softens in you and you begin to move in a slightly different direction:  your face looks wiser or younger, there’s a light in your eyes, something different in how you move, the way your hands take hold of things.

People notice.  ‘You look different,’ they say, or ‘You look wonderful,’ or, ‘What’s happened to you?’

And you say back to them, ‘I’ve fallen in love,’ and inside you know you are changing.  Because being in love changes everything.”   (365 Days of Love, Daphne Rose Kingma, Conari Press)
