"I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, his cloak was out at the elbows, the water passed through his shoes -- and the stars through his soul." -

Top 5 quotes from Victor Hugo
"Forty is the old age of youth; fifty the youth of old age."
"There are fathers who do not love their children; there is no grandfather who does not adore his grandson."
"When dictatorship is a fact, revolution becomes a right."
"There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come."
"The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves."
Top 5 quotes from 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."
"Life is but a brief moment. The years go by quickly and old age arrives suddenly before we have an inkling. People desire so many things and waste their days in vain. Some yearn for gold, others for power, yet others for glory and a higher station. But when death's moment nears and they look back at their lives they've lived, they realise they've been happy only during those moments when they've loved."
"Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained."
"You are what you love. Not what loves you."
"Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings."
