What We Talk About When We Talk About Love

Love is an incredibly strong emotion that when written down can be even more powerful. From Cummings to Tennyson, there’s never a shortage of authors who can tap into how you are feeling.


“If it is right, it happens—the main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.” 

John Steinbeck

“I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty…you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.” 

J. D. Salinger

Love is the answer to everything. It’s the only reason to do anything. If you don’t write stories you love, you’ll never make it. If you don’t write stories that other people love, you’ll never make it.” 

Ray Bradbury

“‘Tis better to have loved and lost,

 Than never to have loved at all.”

Alfred Lord Tennyson

“As he read I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”

John Green

“In the flush of love’s light 
we dare be brave, 
And suddenly we see 
that love costs all we are 
and will ever be. 
Yet, it is only love 
which sets us free.”

Maya Angelou

We are asleep until we fall in Love! 

Leo Tolstoy
