Words of Love (by myself and others)

"Many men (women) go fishing all of their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after."
--Henry David Thoreau

"Your vision will become clear when you look into your heart.  Who looks outside, dreams.  Who looks inside, awakens."
--Carl Gustav Jung

"Love is but the discovery of ourselves and the delight in the recognition."
--Alexander Smith

"We are like sculptors, constantly carving out of others the image we long for, need, love or desire, often against reality, against their benefit, and always, in the end, a disappointment, because it does not fit them."
--Anais Nin

"She took her pattern of life from men but she was not a masculine woman.  She demanded the freedom to change, to evolve, to grow.  She was not a feminist at all but struggling against the feminine side of herself in order to maintain her integrity as an individual."
--Anais Nin

On Lillith:
"an independent woman can only represent a fundamental disruption of a divinely ordered state of affairs."
--John Phillips

"Love cannot exist in peace, it will always come accompanied by agonies, ecstacies, intense joys and profound sadnesses."
--Paulo Cohelo

"Think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course."
Kahlil Gibran

"At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet."

Here's my latest love poem :)

"Of Course One can never under estimate the Power of Love, for Love is the Essence of all Creation."

"If "love" makes you crazy, it is not love.  True love drives you absolutely sane."
--Alan Cohen

"Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination."

"If you have it (love), you don't need to have anything else, and if you do't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have."
--Sir James M. Barrie

"If you cannot inspire a woman with love of you, fill her above the brim with love of herself;  all that runs over will be yours."
--Charles Caleb Colton

For more thoughts on love:
Read some of my original  Love Haikus and yesterday's Long Distance Relationship in Haiku post.
