Quotes about Love, Beauty, Friendship

Love that ends is the shadow of love; true love is without beginning or end.
--Hazrat Inayat Khan

...But let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
...Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone. Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
--Kahlil Gibran

Listen, or thy tongue will keep thee deaf.
--American Indian

Be able to be alone. Lose not the advantage of solitude...but delight to be alone and single with Omnipresency...Life is a pure flame, and we live by an invisible sun within us.
--Sir Thomas Brown (1605-1682)

Beauty is everywhere ~ only some can see it.

It is easy to love a person because they are wonderful, but the whole test of love is to love a person despite the fact that they do not live up to what one sees in them.
--Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan

Let a man overcome anger by love; let him overcome evil by good, let him overcome the greedy by generosity, and a liar by the truth. For hatred does not cease by hatred at anytime; hatred ceases by love.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth so he is for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descent to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
--Kahlil Gibran

A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.
--Arabian proverb
