When we are in love or simply infatuated our feelings are so deep and intense that we often fail to find the correct words and expressions which will give justice to our complicated ecstatic and sometimes frustrated state of being. So we turn to famous love quotes to get inspired by the famous sayings of poets and writers, historians and fighters.
WHO said WHAT about LOVE? Here are some famous quotes about love, lust and sex and all their falls and glory.
It is the heart and not the brain
That to the highest doth attain,
And he who followeth Love’s behest
Far excelleth all the rest.
HENRY W. LONGFELLOW
I don’t want to live–
I want to love first,
And live incidentally.
ZELDA FITZGERALD LETTER TO F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
Absence is to love
What wind is to fire;
It extinguishes the small,
It enkindles the great
ROGER DE BUSSY-RABUTIN
The heart has its reasons,
Whereof reason knows nothing
All’s fair in love and war.
