* It's so funny how we set qualifications for the right person to love, while at the back of our minds we know that the person we truly love will always be an exception.
* There would come a time when we have to stop loving someone not because that person started hating us but because we found out that they'd be happier if we let them go.
* You will know when you really love someone when you want him to be happy even if their happiness means you are not a part of it.
* If someone comes into your life and becomes a part of you but for some reasons he couldn't stay, don't cry too much... just be glad that your paths crossed and somehow he made you happy even for a while.
* There are some things that we never want to let go of... people we never want to leave behind; but keep in mind that letting go is not the end of the world, but rather it is the beginning of a new life.
* Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want him or her to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all he or she have.
* Remember that the best relationship is when your love for each other is greater than your need for each other.
* Two tear drops were floating down the river. One teardrop said to the other, "I'm the teardrop of a girl who loved a man and lost him. “Who are you?” “... I'm the teardrop of the man who regret letting a girl go...” Never let regret form part of your life.
* You'll know that you miss someone very much when every time you think of that person, your heart breaks into pieces and just a quick "Hello” from that person can bring the broken pieces back.
* When you love someone, draw a circle around their name instead of a heart because hearts can be broken but circle never end.
* Just a thought: What would you do if the only person who could make you stop crying is the person who makes you cry?
* "Every step I took since the moment I could walk was a step towards finding you." You don't want to let go; but it's even more painful to ask someone to stay if you can never make the relationship work out the way it should be.
* LOVE? it's kind of complicated, but I'll tell you This... The second you're willing to make yourself miserable to make someone else happy, that's love right.
* If I had the letters "HRT", I can add "EA" to get a "HEART" or a "U” and get "HURT". But I'd rather choose "U" and get "HURT than have a "HEART" without U".
* Giving someone all your love is not an assurance that he will love you back. Don't expect love in return, wait for it to grow in his heart, if it doesn't, be contented it grows in you.
* It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to fall in love with someone but it takes a lifetime to really forget someone you have grown to love.

Following is how Buddha explained True Love :
Buddha explains True Love
The following conversation was between the Buddha and King Pasenadi from the book Old Path, White Clouds:
"Teacher Gautama, there are people who say you advise people not to love. They say you have said that the more a person loves, the more he will suffer and despair. I can see some truth in that statement, but I am unable to find peace with it. Without love, life would seem empty of meaning. Please help me resolve this.
The Buddha looked at the king warmly. "You majesty, your question is a very good one, and many people can benefit from it. There are many kinds of love. We should examine closely the nature of each kind of love. Life has a great need of the presence of love, but not the sort of love that is based on lust, passion, attachment, discrimination, and prejudice.
Majesty, there is another kind of love, sorely needed, which consists of loving kindness and compassion, or maitri and karuna.
Usually when people speak of love they are referring only to the love that exists between parents and children, husbands and wives, family members, or the members of one's caste of country. Because the nature of such love depends on the concepts of 'me' and 'mine', it remains entangled in attachment and discrimination. People want only to love their parents, spouse, children, grandchildren, their own relatives and countrymen. Because they are caught in attachment, they worry about accidents that could befall their loved ones even before such things actually take place. When such accidents do occur, they suffer terribly.
Love that is based on discrimination breeds prejudice. People become indfferent or even hostile to those outside their own circle of love. Attachment and discrimination are sources of suffering for ourselves and others.
Majesty, the love for which all beings truly hunger is loving kindness and compassion. Maitri is the love that has the capacity to bring happiness to another. Karuna is the love which has the capacity to remove another's suffering. Maitri and karuna do not demand anything in return. Loving kindness and compassion are not limited to one's parents, spouse, children, relatives, caste members, and countrymen. They extend to all people and all beings.
In maitri and karuna there is no discrimination no 'mine' or 'not mine.' And because there is no discrimination, there is no attachment. Maitri and karuna bring happiness and ease suffering. They do not cause suffering and despair. Without them, life would be empty of meaning, as you said. Without loving kindness and compassion, life is filled with peace, joy, and contentment.
It is not just some ideal. It is something which can actually be realized, especially by someone like you who has so many means at his disposal."
Just because one loves one's own people is no reason not to love the peoples of other kingdoms."
"The prosperity and security of one nation should not depend on the poverty and insecurity of other nations. Majesty, lastings peace and prosperity are only possible when nations join together in a common commitment to seek the welfare of all.
If you truly want Kosala to enjoy peace and to prevent the young men of your kingdom from losing their lives on the battlefield, you must help other kingdoms find peace. Foreign and economic policies must follow the way of compassion for true peace to be possible.
If our love is based on a selfish desire to possess others, we will not be able to bring them peace and happiness. On the contrary, our love will make them feel trapped. Such a love is no more than a prison.
If you want your loved ones to be happy, you must learn to understand their sufferings and aspirations. When you understand, you will know how to relieve their sufferings and how to help them fulfill their aspirations. That is true love. If you only want you loved ones to follow your own ideas and you remain ignorant of their needs, it is not truly love. It is only a desire to possess another and attempt to fulfill your own needs, which cannot be fulfilled in that way.
