Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.
When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you’d like them to be.
To get rid of an enemy one must love him.
What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are but how you deal with incompatibility.
Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy/ Leo Tolstoy (Russian moral thinker, philosopher, social reformer and writer).
