 Rafael Sabatini - “The love that is never to be realized will often remain a man's guiding ideal.”

 Nathaniel Hawthorne - “Let men tremble to win the hand of woman, unless they win along with it the utmost passion of her heart”

 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - “I did not know the woman soul, that crowning gift of Providence to man, which, if we do not ourselves degrade it, will set an edge to all that is good in us. I did not know how the love of a woman will tinge a man's whole life and every action with unselfishness. I did not know how easy it is to be noble when some one else takes it for granted that one will be so or how wide and interesting life becomes when viewed by four eyes instead of two.”  
 James M. Barrie - “Love, it is said, is blind, but love is not blind. It is an extra eye, which shows us what is most worthy of regard. To see the best is to see most clearly, and it is the lover's privilege.”

 Charlotte Brontë - “There is, in lovers, a certain infatuation of egotism they will have a witness of their happiness, cost that witness what it may.”  
 Theodore Dreiser - “To the untraveled, territory other than their own familiar heath is invariably fascinating. Next to love, it is the one thing which solaces and delights.”  
 George Eliot - “Love has a way of cheating itself consciously, like a child who plays at solitary hide-and-seek it is pleased with assurances that it all the while disbelieves.”  
 William Shakespeare - “Give me some music- music, moody foodOf us that trade in love.”  
 William Shakespeare - “There's beggary in the love that can be reckon'd.”  
 John Galsworthy - “A marvellous speeder-up of Love is War. What might have taken six months, was thus accomplished in three weeks.”  
 James M. Barrie - “The praise that comes of love does not make us vain, but humble rather. Knowing what we are, the pride that shines in our mother's eyes as she looks at us is about the most pathetic thing a man has to face, but he would be a devil altogether if it did not burn some of the sin out of him.”  
 Charles Dickens - “If I may so express it, I was steeped in Dora. I was not merely over head and ears in love with her, but I was saturated through and through. Enough love might have been wrung out of me, metaphorically speaking, to drown anybody in and yet there would have remained enough within me, and all over me, to pervade my entire existence.”  
 Charles Dickens - “She was more than human to me. She was a Fairy, a Sylph, I don't know what she was - anything that no one ever saw, and everything that everybody ever wanted. I was swallowed up in an abyss of love in an instant. There was no pausing on the brink no looking down, or looking back I was gone, headlong, before I had sense to say a word to her.”  
 Harriet Prescott Spofford - “The winds were warm about us, the whole earth seemed the wealthier for our love.”  
 Elizabeth Stuart Phelps - “To Arthur love is a state, not a process an atmosphere, not a study an assurance, not a hope a fact, not an ideal.”  
 George Eliot - “. . . vanity is as ill at ease under indifference as tenderness is under a love which it cannot return . . .”  
 Sorin Cerin - “Holiness, Faith and Religion can never be institutionalized because they are the individual property of every man, they are a part of each mans Sacred Self, and their socialization can be done only by accepting the individuality of each such Sacred Self. And such an acceptance of the individuality does not allow in any circumstance their institutionalization.”  
 Sorin Cerin - “How much does man need Holiness Only through the true Holiness, Man will really change the image of the world, but not the world too. How can this be done It is one thing to look at the world with an aggrieved soul, confused and tormented by all sorts of frustrations and anguishes, and it is another thing to look at the same world full of happiness, fulfilled and optimistic. Are not these two different worlds even if both scenes occur in the same world Is it not a major difference between these ways of seeing the world, between a miserable and a fulfilled man This is why it is not Destiny the one that can be changed, but the way mans self sees it. This is the difference which consists of the otherwise imaginary Free Will of the man.”  
 Sorin Cerin - “The saints thus receive qualities that are forbidden to man, and these qualities are owed precisely to the fact that man is capable of loving and the ultimate form of love is the Holiness. What is the Destiny if not an Image of the Print of our Creating Factor, which is love Through love, man comes closer and closer to the image of the Destiny, which thus turns into Holiness for Man. The Holiness becomes the most plausible and closest image of the Destiny and Holiness is, incredibly, the one to whom it is asked to intervene on Destiny. Who else is asked to intervene on Destiny if not Destiny that thus receives the meaning of Holiness through mans Love, being the Image of love reflected in the Infinite Mirror of Knowledge Who is the manIs he not a piece of this image of Love which is the Destiny So the man is Love or image of Love The man is Love because the image of Love is mans Destiny. Is there a difference between the man and his Destiny There is no such difference. Then the man is both Love and Image of this Love in this world.”
