We have hundreds of quotes on love and friendship. However, we won’t make you look at one at a time like many other websites do. There are about 50 poems on each page.

We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.

Easy-going enough once you acknowledge his power.

Spreads his light wings, and in a moment flies.

* Bertrand Russell

Love is a spirit of all compact of fire.
* William Shakespeare

And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.

* Madame De Staƫl

‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

If so many men, so many minds, certainly so many hearts, so many kinds of love.
* Leo Tolstoy

Love has features which pierce all hearts, he wears a bandage which conceals the faults of those beloved. He has wings, he comes quickly and flies away the same.
* Voltaire

Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.
* Marianne Williamson
