Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“It had to teach her to think of love as a state of grace: not the means to anything but the alpha and omega, an end it itself. ”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Robert Wright
“[L]asting love is something a person has to decide to experience. Lifelong monogamous devotion is just not natural—not for women even, and emphatically not for men. It requires what, for lack of a better term, we can call an act of will. . . . This isn't to say that a young man can't hope to be seized by love. . . . But whether the sheer fury of a man's feelings accurately gauges their likely endurance is another question. The ardor will surely fade, sooner or later, and the marriage will then live or die on respect, practical compatibility, simple affection, and (these days, especially) determination. With the help of these things, something worthy of the label 'love' can last until death. But it will be a different kind of love from the kind that began the marriage. Will it be a richer love, a deeper love, a more spiritual love? Opinions vary. But it's certainly a more impressive love.”
Robert Wright, The Moral Animal: Why We Are the Way We Are: The New Science of Evolutionary Psychology

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“It was the time when they loved each other best, without hurry or excess, when both were most conscious of and grateful for their incredible victories over adversity. Life would still present them with other mortal trails, of course, but that no longer mattered: they were on the other shore. ”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Guillaume Musso
“As long as you remember the person who loved you, and whom you still love, then you're making love endure.”
Guillaume Musso, Que serais-je sans toi?

“As much as I enjoy romance, it’s commitment that I need the most. I need to know a love I can depend on, a love that says, “I will be with you through it all. I love you. And I will love you even when you may not be all that lovable, for sometimes I'm not very lovable either. You can count on me - always.”
Steve Goodier

“Villanelle for my valentine

Old love, I thought I'd never see the time
because of all we've done and often said
when I'd be yours, my dear, and you'd be mine.

And what relief to soften, and resign
the battle of the heart over the head.
old love, I thought I'd never see the time

when qualms and cold feet that could undermine
all we've held out for, dissipate instead
now that I'm yours, my dear and you are mine.

I'm still amazed how our two lives align
the two of us! A pair! Take it as read,
old love, I thought I'd never see the time

The tangle of our jumpers in the line,
the battle for the blankets in our bed
confirm that I am yours, and you are mine.

So then, this is my pledge, my valentine:
my hand's in yours for all that lies ahead.
Oh love, there's never been a better time
now that I'm yours, and finally, you're mine.”
Elise Valmorbida, The Book of Happy Endings: True Stories about Finding Love

Lorrie Moore
“For love to last, you had to have illusions or have no illusions at all. But you had to stick to one or the other. It was the switching back and forth that endangered things.”
Lorrie Moore, Like Life

Loretta Livingstone
“Love must face reality
If it is to survive”
Loretta Livingstone, Jumping in the Puddles of Life

Amit Abraham
“The last love is the most lasting of loves”
Amit Abraham
