Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love – Charlie Brown

May 17, 2007

Romantic love is an illusion. Most of us discover this truth at the end of a love affair or else when the sweet emotions of love lead us into marriage and then turn down their flames. Sir Thomas Moore, moore.jpg (1478-1535) Tudor writer, statesman, philosopher.

That’s the nature of women: not to love when we love them, and to love when we love them not.

Miguel de Cervantes, Spanish novelist, playwright, and poet, the creator of Don Quixotequijoteilusion.jpg

Night, night it is, night upon the palms. Night, night it is, the land wind has blown. Starry, starry night, over deep and height; Love, love in the valley, love all alone. – Robert Louis Stevenson, stevenson.jpgScottish novelist and poet

 Just because you love someone doesn’t mean you have to be involved with them. Love is not a bandage to cover wounds.

Hugh Elliott (Author of the When I was 19 blog)

Love, unrequited, robs me of my rest. Love, hopeless love, my ardent soul encumbers. Love, nightmare-like, lies heavy on my chest, and weaves itself into my midnight slumbers. gilbert.jpg William S. Gilbert (of Gilbert and Sullivan)

May your service of love a beautiful thing want nothing else, fear nothing else and let love be free to become what love truly is. hadewijch.jpg13th Century poet Hadewijch of Antwerp

In real love you want the other person’s good. In romantic love you want the other person. anderson.jpgMargaret Anderson, writer and editor

“A mighty pain to love it is,
And ’tis a pain that pain to miss;
cowley.jpg But of all pains, the greatest pain
It is to love, but love in vain.”

– Poet Abraham Cowley

Intoxicated by the Wine of Love. attarfaridud.jpg
From each a mystic silence Love demands.
What do all seek so earnestly? ‘Tis Love.
What do they whisper to each other? Love.
Love is the subject of their inmost thoughts.
In Love no longer ‘thou’ and ‘I’ exist,
For Self has passed away in the Beloved.
Now will I draw aside the veil from Love,
And in the temple of mine inmost soul,

Behold the Friend; Incomparable Love.
He who would know the secret of both worlds,
Will find the secret of them both, is Love

Farid ud Din Attar, Sufi poet (1119 -1220)
