A man who is swayed by negative emotions may have good enough intentions, may be truthful in word, but he will never find the truth. 

Gandhi

 

For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. 

Rainier Maria Rilke

 

The day will come when, after harnessing the winds, the tides and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of Love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire. 

Teilhard de Chardin

 

Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch it, and it darts away

Dorothy Parker
