In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that

they are joined... to strengthen each other...

to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

and two minus one equals nothing.

For one human being to love another that is perhaps the most difficult

of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof;

the work for which all other work is but preparation.

There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this

world than for bread.

Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted.

Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another's heart,

or its flame burns low.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments

when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done

things in a spirit of love.

Treasure the love you receive above all.
It will survive long after your good health has vanished.

The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being.

His heart withers if it does not answer another heart.

His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own

thoughts and finds no other inspiration.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Love works in miracles every day: such as weakening the strong,

and stretching the weak; making fools of the wise,

and wise men of fools; favouring the passions, destroying reason,

and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

All love that has not friendship for its base,
is like a mansion built upon the sand.

Love is the emblem of eternity: it confounds all notion of time:
effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.

Love is the history of a woman's life; it is an episode in man's.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

The loving are the daring.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

The best portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts,
Of kindness and of love.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Love is a thing, well, its kind of like quicksand:
The more you are in it, the deeper you sink.
And when it hits you, you've just got to fall.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion
that each include the other,
each is enriched by the other.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above
Without it, life is a wasted time
Look inside your heart, I'll look inside mine.

Love is an electric blanket with somebody else in control of the switch.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Love does not consist in gazing at each other
but in looking together in the same direction.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Find the person who will love you because of your differences and
not in spite of them and you have found a lover for life.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Romance has been elegantly defined as the offspring of fiction and love.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Find the person who will love you because of your differences and
not in spite of them and you have found a lover for life.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

Nobody will ever win the battle of the genders.
There?s too much fraternizing with the enemy.

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything,

To laugh often and love much... to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others, to give one's self...
this is to have succeeded.
