„Today I will speak about love. What is love? How can one get love? Why should one get it? There are two kinds of love. One is the worldly connection. The other is attained through Knowledge. In this human body exists the love we have to discover. You should love one another and behave lovingly because when love comes, everything comes. You should speak to one another with love and humility. Love is the essence.“

„I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.“

—  John the Evangelist author of the Gospel of John; traditionally identified with John the Apostle of Jesus, John of Patmos (author of Revela… 10 - 98

Jesus in John 13:34-35 NRSV
Gospel of John
Originál: (el) ἐντολὴν καινὴν δίδωμι ὑμῖν, ἵνα ἀγαπᾶτε ἀλλήλους, καθὼς ἠγάπησα ὑμᾶς ἵνα καὶ ὑμεῖς ἀγαπᾶτε ἀλλήλους. ἐν τούτῳ γνώσονται πάντες ὅτι ἐμοὶ μαθηταί ἐστε, ἐὰν ἀγάπην ἔχητε ἐν ἀλλήλοις.

„It is by loving and not by being loved that one can come nearest to the soul of another.“

—  George MacDonald, kniha Phantastes

Phantastes (1858)
Varianta: It is by loving and not by being loved, that one can come nearest to the soul of another.
Kontext: I knew now, that it is by loving, and not by being loved, that one can come nearest the soul of another; yea, that, where two love, it is the loving of each other, and not the being loved by each other, that originates and perfects and assures their blessedness. I knew that love gives to him that loveth, power over any soul beloved, even if that soul know him not, bringing him inwardly close to that spirit; a power that cannot be but for good; for in proportion as selfishness intrudes, the love ceases, and the power which springs therefrom dies. Yet all love will, one day, meet with its return. All true love will, one day, behold its own image in the eyes of the beloved, and be humbly glad. This is possible in the realms of lofty Death.

„When I said that one may love and be loved at any age I ought to have added that sometimes this love comes too late. It comes when one no longer has the right to prove to the loved one how much she is loved, except by love's sacrifice.“

—  Paul Bourget French writer 1852 - 1935

Pierre Fauchery, as quoted by the character "Jules Labarthe"
The Age for Love
Kontext: I have been thinking about our conversation and about your book, and I am afraid that I expressed myself badly yesterday. When I said that one may love and be loved at any age I ought to have added that sometimes this love comes too late. It comes when one no longer has the right to prove to the loved one how much she is loved, except by love's sacrifice.

„… love one another, as the Lord says: "This is My commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you." And let them show their love by the works they do for each other, according as the Apostle says: "let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth."“

—  Francis of Assisi Catholic saint and founder of the Franciscan Order 1182 - 1226

Francis of Assisi, Rule of 1221, Rule 11 http://www.sacred-texts.com/chr/wosf/wosf06.htm/ - That the Brothers ought not to speak or detract, but ought to love one another.

„Love is above all; and when it prevails in us all, we shall all be Lovely, and in Love with God and one with another.“

—  William Penn English real estate entrepreneur, philosopher, early Quaker and founder of the Province of Pennsylvania 1644 - 1718

Fruits of Solitude (1682), Part I
Kontext: Love is indeed Heaven upon Earth; since Heaven above would not be Heaven without it: For where there is not Love; there is Fear: But perfect Love casts out Fear. And yet we naturally fear most to offend what we most Love. What we Love, we'll Hear; what we Love, we'll Trust; and what we Love, we'll serve, ay, and suffer for too. If you love me says our Blessed Redeemer) keep my Commandments. Why? Why then he'll Love us; then we shall be his Friends; then he'll send us the Comforter; then whatsover we ask, we shall receive; and then where he is we shall be also, and that for ever. Behold the Fruits of Love; the Power, Vertue, Benefit and Beauty of Love! Love is above all; and when it prevails in us all, we shall all be Lovely, and in Love with God and one with another.

„I want to love, to love heedlessly!
To love for the sake of loving: Here…there…
This one, that other and everyone…
To love! To love! And love no one!
[…]
He who loves someone and says that love’s fire
Can last a lifetime is nothing but a liar!“

—  Florbela Espanca Portuguese poet 1894 - 1930

Eu quero amar, amar perdidamente!
Amar só por amar: aqui... além...
Mais Este e Aquele, o Outro e toda a gente...
Amar! Amar! E não amar ninguém!
[...]
Quem disser que se pode amar alguém
Durante a vida inteira é porque mente!
Citações e Pensamentos de Florbela Espanca (2012), p. 110
Translated by John D. Godinho

„I am not the one who loves —
It's love that chooses me.
When hatred with his package comes,
You forbid delivery.“

—  Leonard Cohen Canadian poet and singer-songwriter 1934 - 2016

"You Have Loved Enough"
Ten New Songs (2001)
Kontext: I swept the marble chambers,
But you sent me down below.
You kept me from believing
Until you let me know:
That I am not the one who loves —
It's love that chooses me.
When hatred with his package comes,
You forbid delivery.
