Perhaps extreme danger strips us of all pretenses, all ambitions, all confusions, focusing us more intensely than we are otherwise ever focused, so that we remember what we otherwise spend most of our lives forgetting that our nature and purpose is, more than anything else, to love and to make love, to take joy from the beauty of the world, to live with an awareness that the future is not as real a place for any of us as are the present and the past.
- Dean Koontz
The past is a source of knowledge, and the future is a source of hope. Love of the past implies faith in the future.
- Stephen Ambrose, in Fast Company
Excellent wretch Perdition catch my soul, But I do love thee and when I love thee not, Chaos is come again.
- William Shakespeare
The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in order that I may love myself is very different from the image which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they may love me.
- Wystan Hugh Auden
If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours forever. If it dosent, then it was never meant to be.
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.
- Josh Billings
The only true love is love at first sight second sight dispels it.
- Israel Zangwill
For most men the love of justice is only the fear of suffering injustice.
- La Rochefoucauld
