Writers on Love

Because at heart I am an incurable romantic, I’d thought I’d post these quotes for the day that’s in it.

***************

“I have loved to the point of madness; that which is called madness, that which to me, is the only sensible way to love.” – Françoise Sagan

“Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.” – Leo Tolstoy

“The first symptom of love in a young man is shyness; the first symptom in a young woman is boldness.” – Victor Hugo

“Like I’ve always said, love wouldn’t be blind if the braille weren’t so damned much fun.”  – Armistead Maupin

“Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.” – W.H. Auden

“Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk everything, you risk even more.” – Erica Jong
