Can there be lasting, eternal love between two people? You can look at quotes from writers and thinkers through the ages to see it is not a modern invention. It has been celebrated for centuries.

One story of timeless love was an article about an old couple who were still very much in love with each other. They had children and grandchildren who lived far away, so they were each other's only companions. The man would bring his wife flowers almost every day, while the woman took care of the man as one would do a child. What made the couple unique was that the old man had Alzheimer's disease. He had forgotten everything about his family. But he kept telling everybody he met that he wanted to marry "that girl from the neighborhood." He was talking about his wife.

Isn't it surprising that even a debilitating disease like Alzheimer's that wipes out memories in the brain, could not wipe out the memory of the heart? That is true love. It may be rare, but it does exist.

You don't have to be a romantic to discover true love. If you are a believer, look deep within your heart. Each one of us has been blessed with the ability to love deeply. Reach within and find the abundant love that resides in your heart. With love, you can change the world. Love helps you transcend the realm of superficiality, and achieve a spiritual awakening.

These eternal love quotes are embedded with gems of wisdom that will enrich you. Share these with your dearest and set out on the quest for true love.

"Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence."

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"True love begins when nothing is looked for in return."

William Butler Yeats

"True love is a discipline in which each divines the secret self of the other and refuses to believe in the mere daily self."

Marcel Proust

"Love is space and time measured by the heart."

Charlotte Elizabeth Aisse

"I could never love where I could not respect."


"Sometimes we let affection, go unspoken,

Sometimes we let our love go unexpressed,

Sometimes we can't find words to tell our feelings,

Especially towards those, we love the best."


"Love has features which pierce all hearts, he wears a bandage which conceals the faults of those beloved. He has wings, he comes quickly and flies away the same."

William Shakespeare

"Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.

Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes.

Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears.

What is it else?

A madness most discreet,

a choking gall and a preserving sweet."

From the movie "Moulin Rouge"

"Love is a many splendid thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!"

Bryce Courtney

"Love is energy: it can neither be created nor destroyed. It just is and always will be, giving meaning to life and direction to goodness... Love will never die."

"Romantic love reaches out in little ways, showing attention and admiration. Romantic love remembers what pleases a woman, what excites her, and what surprises her. Its actions whisper: you are the most special person in my life."

Thomas Trahern

"Love is the true means by which the world is enjoyed: our love to others, and others' love to us."

Honore de Balzac

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

"Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves."
