Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.
More quotes by Voltaire
Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.
I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: “O Lord make my enemies ridiculous.” And God granted it.
The opportunity for doing mischief is found a hundred times a day, and of doing good once in a year.
More quotes about Love
I knew from that first moment we met. It was not love at first sight exactly, but – familiarity. Like oh, hello, it’s you. It’s going to be you. Game over.
We may tell ourselves that love is not really available. But the deeper truth is that we don’t entirely trust it, and therefore have a hard time fully opening to it or letting it all the way into us. This disconnects us from our own heart, exacerbating our sense of love’s scarcity.
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
Love is not liking somebody. Anyone can do that. Love is loving things that sometimes you don’t like.
