These heart-melting quotes by artists, writers and philosophers will put you in the mood for love.

"Lost love is still love. It takes a different form, that's all. You can't see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor.

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable." ― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

"Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it." ― Nicholas Sparks, A Walk To Remember

"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you ... I could walk through my garden forever." ― Alfred Tennyson

"Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet." ― Plato

"Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves." ― Albert Einstein

"You don't love someone for their looks, or their clothes or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear." ― Oscar Wilde

"If all else perished and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger." ― Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

"We loved with a love that was more than love." ― Edgar Allan Poe

"Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind."
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

"Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, a moonbeam ray
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when it's morning again, they'll wash away
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you." ― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

"So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you." ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life." ― John Lennon

"Two people in love, alone, isolated from the world, that's beautiful." ― Milan Kundera

"Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering." ― Nicole Krauss, The History Of Love

To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget." ― Arundhati Roy, The Cost Of Living

"In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." ― Jane Austen, Pride And Prejudice

"A soulmate's purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master ..." ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

"The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space." ― Marilyn Monroe
