“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.” – Thomas Merton

“If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.” – Maya Angelou

“When you love someone all your saved up wishes start coming out.” – Elizabeth Bowen

“We are not trapped or locked up in these bones. No, no. We are free to change. And love changes us. And if we can love one another, we can break open the sky.” – Walter Mosley

“Let our scars fall in love.” – Galway Kinnell

“It is a wonderful seasoning of all enjoyments to think of those we love.” – Moliere

“Break a vase, and the love that reassembles the fragments is stronger than that love which took its symmetry for granted when it was whole.” – Derek Walcott

  1. As always, Maya Angelou wins the day for me. <3 A lovely collection of quotes! In the midst of the commercial festival that Valentine's Day often seems to have become, it's good to bring back the love every now and then. :)
