The great majority love in others only what they lend him,
their own selves, their version of him."

Below are some quotes from famous people concerning their experiences, ideas, thoughts and knowledge about love and romance. Some are great minds while others are celebrities, scientists, poets, writers, or politicians. They are representative of the fact that love knows no barriers.
Quotes are often used to begin speeches, letters, conversations, and introductions. Some people like to use quotes to impress others. "I have heard," they say, "that someone very famous once said..." While this may sometimes come across as pompous, it can also be done in a more subtle and discreet way. Imagine yourself walking on a beach with your sweetheart. You are talking about this and that and she says something about love. You come up with a famous take on love and suddenly, she is in your arms...! How about when you want to break the ice? You just saw the woman of your dreams across the room and she looks completely unapproachable. You walk up and, borrowing the crafted words of another, compose a most complimentary comment that she just cannot resist.
