Each moment of the happy lover’s hour is worth an age of dull and common life. – Aphra Behn What does that mean? I laughed when I saw this quote. I know that this applies to loves other than romantic, which is the root of the quote. There have been times when my computer has been called […]

In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities. – János Arany What does that mean? This quote is from a poet and writer of ballads in Hungary in the 1800s.

Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness. – Oliver Wendel Holmes What does that mean?

Harmony is pure love, for love is a concerto. – Lope de Vega What does that mean? A concerto is music played by a soloist (or group of soloists) and a small orchestra.

To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven. – Karen Sunde What does that mean? I find this to be a very interesting quote. It doesn’t (by itself) state that it is specifically about romantic love, although it isn’t difficult to come to that conclusion. Yet I firmly believe that it can be applied to […]

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you… I could walk through my garden forever. – Alfred Lord Tennyson What does that mean? While I couldn’t find the book or poem this is from, nor the words missing from the middle, if the BBC says it’s one of Tennyson’s best quotes, it can’t […]

Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts. – Oliver Wendell Holmes What does that mean? This quote is, to me, about the difference between a physical location and an emotion. The quote says that where we love, that is our home. Put another way : “Home is where the […]

One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is Love. – Sophocles What does that mean?

Take away love, and our earth is a tomb.

Take away love, and our earth is a tomb. – Robert Browning A tomb, as you probably know, is a place where the dead are placed. And without passion, our lives would be as dull and dreary as the lives of the dead. I guess that would make us Zombies, which would fit, wouldn’t it? Imagine, […]
