Socrates's Quote

One word frees us

Of all the weight and pain in life,

That word is Love

From Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet:

Did my heart love till now? Forswear it sight,

For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.

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

"At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet." by Mark Lugris.

Love quotations are as abundant as they are varied.  Ranging from the sentimental to the spiteful, love quotations are as diverse as the emotion itself.  From Shakespeare to Sartre, love quotations offer a sweeping sampling of love, all kinds.


Petuah Bung Hatta

Adalah gila meminjamkan buku kepada seseorang, namun yang lebih gila adalah orang yang meminjamkan buku.

Petuah itu kemudian ditambahkan oleh seseorang, "dan yang lebih gila dari semua yang gila, adalah orang yang meminjam buku kemudian mengembalikannya."

William Shakespeare Quote 5

“He that is thy friend indeed,
He will help thee in thy need:
If thou sorrow, he will weep;
If thou wake, he cannot sleep:
Thus of every grief in heart
He with thee does bear a part.
These are certain signs to know
Faithful friend from flattering foe.”

“But I do love thee! and when I love thee not,
Chaos is come again.”

William Shakespeare Quote 4

“If music be the food of love, play on; give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, the appetite may sicken and so die.”

“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none; be able for thine enemy rather in power than use; and keep thy friend under thine own life's key; be checked for silence, but never taxed for speech”

“Love to faults is always blind, always is to joy inclined. Lawless, winged, and unconfined, and breaks all chains from every mind.”

“'Tis better to bear the ills we have than fly to others that we know not of”  

“And when love speaks, the voice of all the gods
Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.”

William Shakespeare Quote 3

“There's place and means for every man alive.”

 “Who could refrain that had a heart to love and in that heart courage to make love known?”

“Say as you think and speak it from your souls.”

“Give thy thoughts no tongue.”

“Love is too young to know what conscience is.”

“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.”

“Speak low, if you speak love.”
