280.  If it were to be true, one would be living under a permanent surveillance, a round-the-clock celestial dictatorship that watched you while you slept; and could convict you of thought crime, could indict you for things you thought in the privacy of your own skull, and sentence you to quite a long stretch, namely an eternity of punishment for that.  Or dangle not to me very attractive reward of life of eternal praise and grovelling and sprawling and singing the praises of someone who you are ordered to love; someone whom you must both love and fear ... Compulsory love – how fascinating.  (God & Surveillance & Dictatorship & Think & Hell & Praise & Love)  Christopher Hitchens, interview Divine Impulses

 

 

40,720.  Who needs divine permission for love?  To be told to love – isn’t it rather odd to be told to love?  It’s always seemed bizarre to me.  Ordered to love: something is cranky there.  And ordered to love others as much as you love yourself and your loved ones – that’s making an impossible commandment for people.  Christopher Hitchens v Mark Roberts 2007

 

 

40,721. A celestial dictatorship which one must love and simultaneously fear.  What is it like ... to lie to children for a living ... Compulsory love – what a grotesque idea!  Christopher Hitchens v Alister McGrath, Georgetown University Washington 2007

 

 

429.  We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.  (Religion & Hate & Love)  Jonathan Swift

 

 

709.  Only by love can men see me, and know me, and come unto me.  He who works for me, who loves me, whose End Supreme I am, free from attachment to all things, and with love for all creation, he in truth comes unto me.  (God & Love)  Bhagavad Gita, Hindu epic poem incorporated into Mahabharata

 

 

863.  I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.  (Truth & Love & Reality)  Dr Martin Luther King junior 1929-1968

 

 

34,705.  We must discover the power of love, the power, the redemptive power of love.  And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world.  We will be able to make men better.  Love is the only way.  (King & Love)  Dr Martin Luther King junior

 

 

897.  When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won.  There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall.  Think of it - always.  (Truth & Love)  Mahatma Gandhi 

 

 

1,051.  Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,

A medley of extemporanea;

And love is a thing that can never go wrong;

And I am Marie of Roumania.  (Life’s Like That & Love & Epigram)  Dorothy Parker, Comment

 

 

1,052.  Four be the things I’d been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.  (Life’s Like That & Love & Doubt)  Dorothy Parker, Inventory 1937

 

 

1,066.  To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.  (Life’s Like That & Love)  Bertrand Russell, Marriage and Morals 1929

 

 

75,503.  Love is wise; hatred is foolish.  (Hatred & Love)  Bertrand Russell, BBC Face to Face 1959

 

 

1,158.  For the crown of our life as it closes

Is darkness, the fruit thereof dust;

No thorns go as deep as the rose’s,

And love is more cruel than lust.  (Life’s Like That & Death & Roses & Love)  Algernon Charles Swinburne, Delores

 

 

46,166.  Love is merely a madness.  (Shakespeare & Love)  As You Like It, Globe Theatre Sky Arts 2012, Rosalind

 

46,167.  The oath of a love is no stronger than the word of a tapster.  (Shakespeare & Oath & Love)  ibid.                          

 

 

40,741.  Away, you trifler!  Love!  I love thee not,

I care not for thee, Kate: this is no world

To play with mammets and to tilt with lips:

We must have bloody noses and cracked crowns.  William Shakespeare, I Henry IV II iii 95

 

 

40,742.  A man can die but once.  We owe God a death.  William Shakespeare, II Henry IV III ii 232-233, Feeble

 

 

40,727.  Love is a familiar; love is a devil.  There is no evil angel but love.  William Shakespeare, Loves Labours Lost I ii 164-165, Armado to Costard

 

 

40,732.  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 chocking gall, and a preserving sweet.  William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet I i 187-191, Romeo to Benvolio

 

40,733.  Is love a tender thing?  It is too rough,

Too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.  ibid.  I iv 25-26, Romeo to Mercutio

 

40,734.  If love be blind, love cannot hit the mark.  ibid.  II i 33, Mercutio to Benvolio

 

40,735.  For stony limits cannot hold love out,

And what love can do, that dares love attempt.  ibid.  II i 109-110, Romeo to Juliet

 

40,736.  My bounty is as boundless as the sea,

My love as deep.  The more I give to thee

The more I have, for both are infinite.  ibid.  II i 175-177, Juliet to Romeo

 

40,737.  Love goes toward love as schoolboys from their books,

But love from love toward school with heavy looks.  ibid.  II i 201-202, Romeo to Juliet

 

40,738.  Young men’s love then lies

Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.  ibid.  II ii 67-68, Friar Laurence to Romeo

 

40,739.  Love’s heralds should be thoughts,

Which ten times faster glides than the sun’s beams

Driving back shadows over louring hills.  ibid.  II iv 4-6, Juliet to self

 

3,487.  When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.  (Star & Death & Heaven & World & Love & Worship & Sun & Compliment)  ibid.  III ii @21
