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.

Absence is to love
What wind is to fire;
It extinguishes the small,
It enkindles the great

    Unbelievable words that so define long distance relationships. One thing for certain, these are not for everyone. Only the strongest of relationships will survive the distance and the separation. But those that survive are what relationships are supposed to be in the first place.

  • Marlie:

    I agree with Daniel. I am in the middle of a long distance relationship and so many times I get fedup and want out. Then I take a deep breath and think on how much I love him and how wonderful we are together and how all this is just short lived and we’ll soon be together.

  • twisted:

    I also am in a long distance relationship and it really sucks. It’s saturday and I am at home watching TV. Really sucks. It’s hard to have a boyfriend yet feel so lonely. 76 days to go. Hopefully we’ll survive but it really really sucks

  • Ashten:

    I just recently got out of a long distance relationship. i love my ex with all my heart and soul. Im here to tell you girls now. long distance relationships usually dont work. you can try and fight and do everything you can to try to make it work like i did but it wont. i hope and wish you all the best of luck. hopefully you will have more luck than i did. best advice i can give you is call him often and remind him how much he means to you and how much you love him. GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!!!

  • Desiree:

    Yeah, me and a friend we love each other and have known each other more than half of our life’s. We live only 8 hours away which isn’t that bad be we want to be together but can’t decide to wait a year till he graduates or have a long distance relationship. I for one think that we can make it in a long distance relationship, or we could wait a year. I know a lot of things change in a year but I know for a fact my feeling’s won’t I’ve loved him for the past 4 years. I’m just afraid that he won’t.

  • Ann:

    Love is like a seed. To grow, it needs water, and sun. But if you take away the sun, it will not grow with the water only. Take away the sun for too long and it’ll die. What I mean is, despite the love you have for your partner, a long distance relationship will, if too long, destroy your love. For love to grow, you need to be with that person. And for online dating, it can work because they didn’t plant the seed yet.

  • Maurice Like:

    I too thought long distance relationships work, but na i dont think so Goodness me it would be the last thing I woud ever try to do in life.

  • Michael Fitzgerald:

    Love is not something that you make its something that you do.

    Clint Black.
