You are everything I've been looking for
-from the song Can I Walk With You? by India Arie
Each of us is born with a box of matches inside us but we can't strike them all by ourselves; just as in the experiment, we need oxygen and a candle to help. In this case, the oxygen, for example, would come from the breath of the person you love; the candle could be any kind of food, music, caress, word, or sound that engenders the explosion that lights one of the matches.
-excerpt from the magical realism novel Like Water for Chocolate (1989) by Laura Esquivel
"As well as this being a great moment for national celebration, I think we also have to remember that this is two young people who love each other who have made this announcement, who are looking forward to their wedding, and we must give them plenty of space to think about the future and what they are about to do."
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
-passage from the Bible, Colossians 3:14
"The arms of love encompass you with your present, your past, your future, the arms of love gather you together."
An engaged woman is always more agreeable than a disengaged. She is satisfied with herself. Her cares are over, and she feels that she may exert all her powers of pleasing without suspicion. All is safe with a lady engaged; no harm can be done.
-English Novelist Jane Austen
"I am in love - and, my God, it is the greatest thing that can happen to a man. I tell you, find a woman you can fall in love with. Do it. Let yourself fall in love. If you have not done so already, you are wasting your life."
-excerpt from The Selected Letters of DH Lawrence (1997) by poet and playwright D. H. Lawrence
