Paulo Coelho
“My heart might be bruised, but it will recover and become capable of seeing beauty of life once more. It's happened before, it will happen again, I'm sure. When someone leaves, it's because someone else is about to arrive--I'll find love again.”
Paulo Coelho, The Zahir


Not until I felt your sunshine,
Did I realize that I had been in the shade.
Not until I saw all your colors,
Did I realize that mine had faded.
Not until I heard your dreams,
Did I realize that I was still sleeping.
And not until I experienced my life with you,
Did I realize that I was barely

the worst.”

“Love Just Happens"

Love just happens
When you are not looking for it,
Not paying attention,
You could miss it the first few times,
But then, unexpectedly,
Somehow this invisible magnetic energy
Pulls you and another person together.
And you feel this beautiful magic,
Like a gravitational force -
As if the moon were kissing the sun.
And their name,
Becomes the most hypnotic name
And you die to see their eyes
When you open yours
Every time.

Love just happens
When you least expect it
At any location
At any time.
It never announces its arrival
But when it does find you
Its warmth is so strong
It may frighten you
You could close your eyes and feel it
And feel them
No matter where you are
Or they are
Every time.

Love just happens
And it happens to everybody.
But some people have their sensors off,
Or hide from it,
Or constantly look for it.
Just don't think about it.
Open your heart and it will find you.
It always does.
Whenever you think it forgot about you,
It will hit you.
Just like that –
Every time.

Love just happens.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Love is the sister to Truth, but they differ in two ways. You must go to Truth to find her. She will never come looking for you. However, you are never to go looking for her sister Love. Love will find you in your own divine timing, when you are ready for her. So don't look, she will come. She always does.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Anthon St. Maarten
“These days when you kiss a prince you often run the risk of turning him into a frog. But don't let the ogres in shining armor get you down. There is no need for distress - you don't want to be anyone's damsel anyway. Simply remind yourself that you are busy racking up those 'frequent failure points' that will eventually pay for an all expenses paid trip to Mr Right.”
Anthon St. Maarten

Alexandra Katehakis
“Sometimes it’s only in the ecstasy of unrepressed movement that we may enter the stillness of our authentic selves. In such sacred moments, the world seems to be in step. This is why the idea of finding love across the dance floor endure — symbolizing that, when we know the true rhythm of our heart, we know the other.”
Alexandra Katehakis, Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence

Barbara Lieberman
“One does not seek love,' she told him, 'it should find you all on it's own”

Mitch Albom
“People say they find love, as if it were an object hidden under a rock. But love takes many forms, and it is never the same for any man and woman. What people find then is a certain love.”
Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Shannon L. Alder
“You can't live in your mind and expect those dreams to become real, without the work. Reality requires actions that might feel scary, but that is what is required if you want to find true love. Don't expect it to come and rescue you. You have to rescue yourself.”
Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder
“Sometimes your inability to let go has nothing to do with real love and everything to do with what that person represents in your life. Why do you give them so much importance? Why do you believe that God doesn't love you enough that he would not bring someone else into your life? Why do you put up with less than you deserve?”
Shannon L. Alder

Zack Love
“Summoning my inner Kojak, I tried to convince myself that she would have sat next to me even had there been somewhere else on the bus to sit. Unfortunately, I didn't do a very good job of self-persuasion. Good thing I wasn't in court suing myself, because I would have lost.

Sarah  Curtis
“Who was that?"

"A one-night stand that didn't want to let go."

Alexis looked over the sea of people, trying to find the woman.  "There seems to be a lot of those."
"Too late to change my past now, but if I could, I would."

Alexis gave him a disbelieving smirk.  "Are you saying, if you could have changed things, you would've waited for me?"

He gave her his wicked grin.  "I'm saying I would have found you sooner.”
Sarah Curtis, Alluring

Lailah Gifty Akita
“You will find what you seek.”

“Describing our romantic longings in 'Life preserves,' therapist Harriet Lerner shares that most people want a partner 'who is mature and intelligent, loyal and trustworthy, loving and attentive, sensitive and open, kind and nurturant, competent and responsible.' No matter the intensity of this desire, she concludes: 'Few of us evaluate a prospective partner with the same objectivity and clarity that we might use to select a household appliance or a car.' To be capable of critically evaluating a partner we would need to be able to stand back and look critically at ourselves, at our needs, desires, and longings..... We fear that evaluating our needs and then carefully choosing partners will reveal that there is no one for us to love. Most of us prefer to have a partner who is lacking then no partner at all. What becomes apparent is that we may be more interested in finding a partner than in knowing love.”
bell hooks, All About Love: New Visions

“Some people get what they want, but then they act like they don't want what they're given. I think its because sometimes the form it takes isn't quite the form they wanted. That the person giving it & the manor in which it's given isn't what they wanted. Or maybe the timing is simply off. Or maybe, it's just that when you don't know what you want nothing is ever enough.

And I think that's the real tragedy. That life gives us exactly what we've been wanting but we fail to embrace it. Simply letting those moments & people pass us by.”
Trevor Driggers

“True love finds its own ways
To spread goodness, always.”

“Love does not cost a thing, but it is priceless...”
