the genuine expression of life

No cord nor cable can so forcibly draw, or hold so fast, as love can do with a twined thread.  -Robert Burton

 “There are strings,” said Mr Tappertit, “in the human heart that had better not be vibrated.” Charles Dickens

All other things, to their destruction draw,  Only our love hath no decay; This, no to-morrow hath, nor yesterday, Running it never runs from us away, But truly keeps his first, last, everlasting day. -John Donne

 Love ceases to be a pleasure, when it ceases to be a secret. -Aphra Behn

I don’t like fond. It sounds like something you would tell a dog. Give me love, or nothing. -Alice Walker

What love is, if thou wouldst be taught, Thy heart must teach alone—Two souls with but a single thought, Two hearts that beat as one. -Friedrich Halm

  True love’s the gift which God has given To man alone beneath the heaven. -Sir Walter Scott

In a full heart there is room for everything, and in an empty heart there is room for nothing. -Antonio Porchia

The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one; Yet the light of the bright world dies, With the dying sun.
The mind has a thousand eyes, And the heart but one; Yet the light of a whole life dies, When love is done.   -Francis William Bourdillon

And what shoulder & what art, Could twist the sinews of thy heart?And, when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet? -William Blake

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. –Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
