„We never love someone. We just love the idea we have of someone. It's a concept of ours - summing up, ourselves - that we love.“

—  Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
Original: Nunca amamos niguém. Amamos, tão-somente, a ideia que fazemos de alguém. É a um conceito nosso — em suma, é a nós mesmos — que amamos. Ibid., p. 125

„I think the reason this happens is that we want to give love and we receive love.“

—  Benazir Bhutto 11th Prime Minister of Pakistan 1953 - 2007
Context: I find that whenever I am in power, or my father was in power, somehow good things happen. The economy picks up, we have good rains, water comes, people have crops. I think the reason this happens is that we want to give love and we receive love. As quoted in "I never asked for power" in The Guardian (15 August 2002)
