Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
Love is like a friendship caught on fire.
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.
Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.
The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.
In your light I learn how to love.
You know you're in love when you stop comparing.
The real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.' Mature love says 'I need you because I love you.'
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.
I need you because I love you.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
