"Mortal lovers must not try to remain at the first step; for lasting passion is the dream of a harlot and from it we wake in despair."
"Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained."
"If, as I can't help suspecting, the dead also feel the pains of separation (and this may be one of their purgatorial sufferings), then for both lovers, and for all pairs of lovers without exception, bereavement is a universal and integral part of our experience of love."
"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable."
"Love, while always forgiving of imperfections and mistakes, can never cease to will their removal."
