  • Yes I now feel that it was then on that evening of sweet dreams- that the very first dawn of human love burst upon the icy night of my spirit. Since that period I have never seen nor heard your name without a shiver half of delight half of anxiety.

    Dream   Sweet   Night  
    Edgar Allan Poe (1966). “Letters”
  • Love of the limited self, the very limited self, is another name for human love. Love of the entire world is another name for divine love.

    Love   Self   Names  
    Sri Chinmoy (2014). “The Oneness of the Eastern Heart and the Western Mind: An Introduction to Eastern Philosophy and Yoga”, p.1065, Aum Publications
  • Human love is needing the other one. Divine love is giving to the other one.

    Love Is   Giving   Divine  
  • Marilla felt more embarrassed than ever. She had intended to teach Anne the childish classic, "Now I lay me down to sleep." But she had, as I have told you, the glimmerings of a sense of humor--which is simply another name for a sense of the fitness of things; and it suddenly occurred to her that simple little prayer, sacred to the white-robed childhood lisping at motherly knees, was entirely unsuited to this freckled witch of a girl who knew and cared nothing about God's love, since she had never had it translated to her through the medium of human love.

    Girl   Prayer   Sleep  
    Lucy Maud Montgomery (2015). “Anne of Green Gables Collection: Anne of Green Gables, Anne of the Island, and More Anne Shirley Books”, p.49, Xist Publishing
  • Human love has little regard for the truth. It makes the truth relative, since nothing, not even the truth, must come between it and the beloved person.

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Samuel Wells (2015). “Life Together”, p.21, SCM Press
  • A short-lived fascination with another person may be exciting-I think we've all seen people aglow, in a state of being "in love with love"-but such an attraction is not sustainable over the long run. Paradoxically, human love is sanctified not in the height of attraction and enthusiasm, but in the everyday struggles of living with another person. It is not in romance but in routine that the possibilities for transformation are made manifest. And that requires commitment.

    Love   Running   Struggle  
    Kathleen Norris (1998). “The Quotidian Mysteries: Laundry, Liturgy, and "women's Work"”, p.62, Paulist Press
  • For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.

    Love   Life   Inspiring  
    John J. L. Mood, Rainer Maria Rilke (1994). “Rilke on Love and Other Difficulties: Translations and Considerations”, p.37, W. W. Norton & Company
  • One of the most exquisite pleasures of human love - to serve the loved one without his knowing it - is only possible, as regards the love of God, through atheism.

    Life   Knowing   Atheism  
    Simone Weil (2015). “First and Last Notebooks: Supernatural Knowledge”, p.84, Wipf and Stock Publishers
  • All things are sold: the very light of heaven is venal; earth's unsparing gifts of love, the smallest and most despicable things that lurk in the abysses of the deep, all objects of our life, even life itself, and the poor pittance which the laws allow of liberty, the fellowship of man, those duties which his heart of human love should urge him to perform instinctively, are bought and sold as in a public mart of not disguising selfishness, that sets on each its price, the stamp-mark of her reign.

    Love   Money   Heart  
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1853). “The Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley: Complete in One Volume”, p.27
  • Man depends on God for all things: God depends on man for one. Without man's love God does not exist as God, only as creator, and love is the one thing no one, not even God himself, can command. It is a free gift or it is nothing. And it is most itself, most free, when it is offered in spite of suffering, of injustice, and of death . . . The justification of the injustice of the universe is not our blind acceptance of God's inexplicable will, nor our trust in God's love, his dark and incomprehensible love, for us, but our human love, notwithstanding anything, for him.

  • It's not the length but the quality of life that matters to me. It has always been important to me to write one sentence at a time, to live every day as if it were my last and judge it in those terms, often badly, not because it lacked grand gesture or grand passion but because it failed in the daily virtues of self-discipline, kindness, and laughter. It is love, very ordinary, human love, and not fear, which is the good teacher and the wisest judge.

    Love   Teacher   Kindness  
  • There is no love. There's only love of men and women, love Of children, love of friends, of men, of God: Divine love, human love, parental love, Roughly discriminated for the rough.

    Love   Children   Men  
    Robert Frost (1949). “Complete Poems of Robert Frost: 1949”, New York : H. Holt
  • Two human loves make one divine.

    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1850). “Poems: By Elizabeth Barrett Browning. In two volumes”, p.302
  • By abolishing private property one deprives the human love of aggression.

    "The Major Works of Sigmund Freud".
  • What is love? From the spiritual and inner point of view, love is self-expansion. Human love binds and is bound. Divine Love expands, enlarges itself.

    Sri Chinmoy (2014). “The Oneness of the Eastern Heart and the Western Mind: An Introduction to Eastern Philosophy and Yoga”, p.431, Aum Publications
  • The candle glimmers but an hour. The night Looms in its ancient hunger. Would you know The tragedy of human love and need? Gaze on the stars, then on a brother's face!

    Brother   Stars   Night  
  • God has no needs. Human love, as Plato teaches us, is the child of Poverty – of want or lack; it is caused by a real or supposed goal in its beloved which the lover needs and desires. But God's love, far from being caused by goodness in the object, causes all the goodness which the object has, loving it first into existence, and then into real, though derivative, lovability. God is Goodness. He can give good, but cannot need or get it. In that sense , His love is, as it were, bottomlessly selfless by very definition; it has everything to give, and nothing to receive.

    Plato   Children   Real  
  • But let us not forget that human love and compassion are equally deeply rooted in our primate heritage, and in this sphere too our sensibilities are of a higher order of magnitude than those of chimpanzees.

    Jane Goodall (2010). “Through a Window: My Thirty Years with the Chimpanzees of Gombe”, p.245, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
  • I have no doubt that in the future, the laws that criminalize human love and commitment will look the way the apartheid laws do to us now, so obviously wrong

    Commitment   Law   Doubt  
  • Christianity has ever been the enemy of human love; it has forever cursed and expelled and crucified the one passion which sweetens and smiles on human life, which makes the desert blossom as the rose, and which glorifies the common things and common ways of earth. It made of this, the angel of life, a shape of sin and darkness ... Even in the unions which it reluctantly permitted, it degraded and dwarfed the passion which it could not entirely exclude, and permitted it coarsely to exist for the mere necessity of procreation.

    Angel   Passion   Rose  
    Ouida (1896). “Views and Opinions”
  • Human love is often but the encounter of two weaknesses.

    Love   Two   Weakness  
  • For the joy of human love, brother, sister, parent, child, Friends on earth and friends above, for all gentle thoughts and mild; Christ, our God, to Thee we raise this our Sacrifice of grateful praise.

  • The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.

    "Wisdom for the Soul: Five Millennia of Prescriptions for Spiritual Healing". Book by Larry Chang, p. 597, 2006.
  • For the power Thou hast given me to lay hold of things unseen: For the strong sense I have that this is not my home:For my restless heart which nothing finite can satisfy: I give Thee thanks, O God. For the invasion of my soul by Thy Holy Spirit: For all human love and goodness that speak to me of Thee: For the fullness of Thy glory outpoured in Jesus Christ: I give Thee thanks, O God.

    Jesus   Strong   Home  
    John Baillie (1952). “A diary of private prayer”, Scribner
  • I like grit, I like love and death, I'm tired of irony. ... A lot of good fiction is sentimental. ... The novelist who refuses sentiment refuses the full spectrum of human behavior, and then he just dries up. ... I would rather give full vent to all human loves and disappointments, and take a chance on being corny, than die a smartass.

  • We may give our human loves the unconditional allegiance which we owe only to God. They they become gods: then they become demons. Then they will destroy us, and also destroy themselves. For natural loves that are allowed to become gods do not remain loves. They are still called so, but can become in fact complicated forms of hatred.

    Giving   Hatred   May  
  • All human love is a faint type of God's; An echoing note from a harmonious whole; A feeble spark from an undying flame; A single drop from an unfathomed sea: But God's is infinite; it fills the earth And heaven, and the broad, trackless realms of space.

    Love   God   Flames  
  • Let the average man be put to the proof on the question of who is above, and his true position will be exposed. Let him be forced into making a choice between God and money, between God and men, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love, and God will take second place every time.

    Love   Ambition   Men  
  • I’m not at peace anymore. I just want him like I used to in the old days. I want to be eating sandwiches with him. I want to be drinking with him in a bar. I’m tired and I don’t want anymore pain. I want Maurice. I want ordinary corrupt human love. Dear God, you know I want to want Your pain, but I don’t want it now. Take it away for a while and give it me another time.

    Pain   Drinking   Tired  
  • Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.

    Love   Peace   Kings  
    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (2013). “The Essential Martin Luther King, Jr.: "I Have a Dream" and Other Great Writings”, p.115, Beacon Press
