In honor of this Valentine’s Day of LOVE, I have cobbled together a bunch of thoughts on love, as written by people smarter than me. Enjoy this Feel Good Valentine’s Day with the people who make you FEEL GOOD!! Enjoy them today…and every day…-Dave

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.

– Peter Ustinov

Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.

– Jim Morrison

Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.

– C. S. Lewis

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

– Mother Teresa

A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled, but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy.

– George Jean Nathan

Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.

– H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.

– Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.

– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.

– George Edward Moore

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.

– Henry Drummond

I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty… you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.

– J. D. Salinger

The last quote is my favorite and the most potent words I have found regarding love and life. It resonates with urgency and feels like a plea:

Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever.

– Leo Buscaglia
