Love Quotes

Happy Horny Werewolf Day!  It seemed to be the appropriate time of year to release this post, but to be honest, it's been sitting around in draft form for about a year since I was using this as a collection point while trying to figure out how to write a wedding ceremony.  The biggest problem I had finding romance quotes (particularly in wedding planning books) that were religion-free.  So, with that in mind, I'm sharing a small collection of (mostly) literary quotes about love.

Love is the degree to which you are willing to sacrifice your own interests for those of another. It doesn't matter what sex you are. It doesn't matter who you are or were. It only matters that you care more for someone else than you do for yourself. It's when you eat minlatta with tarragon oil even when you hate pasta because someone with you enjoys it. It's when you value being alone more than anything but agree to move in with someone because they need you. And believe this, Ellis Rogers, for I am quite certain that love is most certainly when you push away the one person in all the world you want to be with because you think your thoughts would cause them pain.
-Hollow World / Michael J. Sullivan

Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won't adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words "make" and "stay" become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free.
-Still Life with a Woodpecker / Tom Robbins

Don't ever think I fell for you, or fell over you. I didn't fall in love, I rose in it.
-Jazz / Toni Morrison

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.
-Albert Einstein

In this galaxy, there's a mathematical probability of three million Earth type planets. And in all of the universe three million, million galaxies like this. And in all of that, and perhaps more, only one of each of us.
-Balance of Terror, Star Trek: The Original Series, Season 1

Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
-Stranger in a Strange Land, Robert A. Heinlein
