„Love is the free exercise of choice. Two people love each other only when they are quite capable of living without each other but choose to live with each other.“

„When two spirits recognize each other in memory and future, then love grows.“

— Valya Dudycz Lupescu American writer 1974
Context: I would add to my mother’s wisdom that the key to love is in the breath. You know you love a man when you can stand his breath in the morning after a night of drinking and cigarettes. When you can kiss him after he finishes a garlic and butter sandwich and still enjoy the feel of his lips. When he looks into your eyes, tells you he loves you—and the pickled herring and onions are stronger than his voice—yet you still smile. You still want to be close to him. Yes, then you have found love. My Baba used to say that the breath is a taste of the spirit. When two spirits recognize each other in memory and future, then love grows.

„Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other.“

— Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933
Context: Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other. Love is an echo in the feelings of a unity subsisting between two persons which is founded both on likeness and on complementary differences. Without the likeness there would be no attraction; without the challenge of the complementary differences there could not be the closer interweaving and the inextinguishable mutual interest which is the characteristic of all deeper relationships. Section 5 : Love and Marriage

„They wordlessly excused each other for not loving each other as much as they had planned.“

— Miranda July American performance artist, musician and writer 1974
Context: They wordlessly excused each other for not loving each other as much as they had planned. There were empty rooms in the house where they had meant to put their love and they worked together to fill these rooms with high-end, consumer-grade equipment. It was a tight situation. The next sudden move would have to be through the wall. "Birthmark" in Paris Review (Spring 2003)
