Lost Love Quotes

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; favoring the passions, destroying reason, and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy.

~ Marguerite De Valois

There are two times in every man's life when he is thoroughly happy; just after he has met his first love and just after he has parted from his last one.

~H. L. Mencken

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.

~Thomas Moore

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.

~ Pearl S. Buck

Looking back, I have this to regret, that too often when I loved, I did not say so.

~ David Grayson

There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.

~ Mother Teresa

You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

~ Sam Keen

What the heart has once owned and had, it shall never lose.

~ Henry Ward Beecher

I have loved to the point of madness,
That which is called madness,
That which to me,
Is the only sensible way to love.

F. Sagan

It is best to love wisely, no doubt;
but to love foolishly is better than
not to be able to love at all.

~William Thackeray

You can't buy love, but you can pay heavily for it.

~Henny Youngman

We can only learn to love by loving.

~Iris Murdoch

Don't hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love.


To fear love is to fear life,
and those who fear life are already three parts dead.

~Bertrand Russell, Earl Russell

MB, thanks bunches.

I know why I didnt think there were romantic men out there .<br />
I have never looked ....lol ..being a man my self, I guess I just didnt see it. ya think?

Me too! There are lots of romantic men here. They are sooooo yummy.

I always enjoy when you share quotes. These are nice. I have to disagree with usair, though. I find lots of profound and romantic things right here on EP.

I like several of these; Buck, Beecher, Sagan, Murdoch, Russell, and the anonymous one.

Some are darling.

Most quotes are from many years ago. people today dont have many profound things to say. men are not as romantic ether.
