Love shall be our token; love be yours and love be mine.
Rossetti, Christina quotes
- "For there is no friend like a sister, in calm… "For there is no friend like a sister, in calm or stormy weather, to cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands." - Christina G. Rossetti
- J. E. Buchrose "Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again - this is the brave and happy life." J. E. Buchrose quotes
- "Bitterness imprisons life; love releases it.… "Bitterness imprisons life; love releases it. Bitterness paralyzes life; love empowers it. Bitterness sours life; love sweetens it. Bitterness sickens life; love heals it. Bitterness blinds life; love anoints its eyes." - Harry Emerson Fosdick
- Alphonse de Lamartine – love "To love for the sake of being loved is human, but to love for the sake of loving is angelic." ~Alphonse de Lamartine
