If all the world were green, there would be no such thing as the color green. Similarly, men cannot know what it is to be together without otherwise knowing what it is to be apart. If all the world were love, then, how could love exist? This is why we turn away from each other on moments of great happiness and closeness. How can we know happiness and closeness without contrasting them, like lights?Jack Kerouac Love Without Knowing Sayings By Jack Kerouac: If all the world were green, there would be no such thing as the color
Sit your affections, your heart and your precious time out on the doorstep without so much as making him ring the doorbell first, and he'll treat you like a doormat. Make him work a little to get next to you, and he won't stop til you're his.Mandy Hale Love Without Knowing Sayings By Mandy Hale: Sit your affections, your heart and your precious time out on the doorstep without so
I loved you without knowing it, and I looked for your memory.
In empty houses I entered with a lantern to steal your portrait

I've never minded it," he went on. "Being lost, that is. I had always thought one could not truly be lost if one knew one's own heart. But I fear I may be lost without knowing yours.Cassandra Clare Love Without Knowing Sayings By Cassandra Clare: I've never minded it," he went on. "Being lost, that is. I had always thought
I love knowing that you love me like I love. Without your love, I could not live.Auliq Ice Love Without Knowing Sayings By Auliq Ice: I love knowing that you love me like I love. Without your love, I could
Because she knew that something happened to you when your mother didn't hold you close, or tell you all the time that you were the best thing ever, or even notice when you were home: a little part of you sealed over. You didn't need her. You didn't need anyone. And without even knowing you were doing it, you waited. You waited for anyone who got close to you to see something they didn't like in you, something they hadn't initially seen, and to grow cold and disappear, too, like so much sea mist. Because there had to be something wrong, didn't there, if even your own mother didn't really love you?Jojo Moyes Love Without Knowing Sayings By Jojo Moyes: Because she knew that something happened to you when your mother didn't hold you close,
It's a great shame, she thinks, that the heart cannot feel joy without also feeling pain, that it cannot know love without also knowing loss.Menna Van Praag Love Without Knowing Sayings By Menna Van Praag: It's a great shame, she thinks, that the heart cannot feel joy without also feeling
He dropped his voice, so low that Tessa wasn't sure if what he said next was real or part of the dream darkness rising to claim her, though she
fought against it.
"I've never minded it," he went on. "Being lost, that is. I had always thought one could not be truly lost if one knew one's own heart. But I fear I may
be lost without knowing yours." He closed his eyes as if he were bone-weary, and she saw how thin his eyelids were, like parchment paper, and
how tired he looked. "Wo ai ni, Tessa," he whispered. "Wo bu xiang shi qu ni."
She knew, without knowing how she knew, what the words meant.
I love you.
And I don't want to lose you.
Cassandra Clare Love Without Knowing Sayings By Cassandra Clare: He dropped his voice, so low that Tessa wasn't sure if what he said next
Love is the giving from the heart
Without expecting any return.
Love is the sharing the beauty of life
Without expecting any charm or joy
Love is the caring with kindness
Without knowing caring is the joy.
Debasish Mridha Love Without Knowing Sayings By Debasish Mridha: Love is the giving from the heartWithout expecting any return.Love is the sharing the beauty
I had formed the habit of treating those parts of my character that were in any way my responsibility to exhortations so wholesome and sensible as to be comical. As a part of my system of self-discipline, dating from childhood, I constantly told myself it would be better to die than become a lukewarm person, an unmanly person, a person who does not clearly know his likes and dislikes, a person who wants only to be loved without knowing how to love. This exhortation of course had a possible applicability to the parts of my character for which I was to blame, but so far as the other parts were concerned, the parts for which I was not to blame, it was an impossible requirement from the beginning.Yukio Mishima Love Without Knowing Sayings By Yukio Mishima: I had formed the habit of treating those parts of my character that were in
I have a longing for life, and I go on living in spite of logic. Though I may not believe in the order of the universe, yet I love the sticky little leaves in spring. I love the blue sky. I love some people, whom one loves you know sometimes without knowing why. I love some great deeds done by men, though I've long ceased perhaps to have faith in them. Yet from habit one's heart prizes them.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Love Without Knowing Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: I have a longing for life, and I go on living in spite of logic.
It was as if the boundary between friendship and love was so thin and imperceptible that one could cross it without even knowing it was there.Orson Scott Card Love Without Knowing Sayings By Orson Scott Card: It was as if the boundary between friendship and love was so thin and imperceptible
No one can desire the love of God without first knowing human love.Paulo Coelho Love Without Knowing Sayings By Paulo Coelho: No one can desire the love of God without first knowing human love.
But he was not Matthew. He was everything that Matthew was not. He was safety and comfort and warmth. He was home. He was everything in the world that was hope and sunshine. He took a step toward her and opened his arms to her, and she was in those arms without ever knowing how the distance between them had closed.Mary Balogh Love Without Knowing Sayings By Mary Balogh: But he was not Matthew. He was everything that Matthew was not. He was safety
In absence of consciousness, human beings would merely be animated material objects. Without the synergistic impact of consciousness, free will, and perception of a cohesive self, which act to direct human conduct, many of the qualities that we associate with our humanness would be moot or superfluous delusions including laughter and pain, memories and thoughts, love and anger, imagination and dreams. Without consciousness and free will, humankind would lack the ability to choose right from wrong and there could be no mental discipline directing each person's lifestyle, attitudes, and belief systems.Kilroy J. Oldster Love Without Knowing Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: In absence of consciousness, human beings would merely be animated material objects. Without the synergistic
I can't take one breath, not one single breath, without knowing that I love you.Carolyn Parkhurst Love Without Knowing Sayings By Carolyn Parkhurst: I can't take one breath, not one single breath, without knowing that I love you.
I don't want anything now, Sarie thought, not a thing in the world. I have everything I want. Yesterday I wanted so much without knowing what. Today I've got everything...Peter Abrahams Love Without Knowing Sayings By Peter Abrahams: I don't want anything now, Sarie thought, not a thing in the world. I have
We are each what never leaves us, what we never see

is at the back, as Eurydice was

Beauty without wit offers love nothing but the material enjoyment of its physical charms, whilst witty ugliness captivates by the charms of the mind, and at last fulfills all the desires of the man it has captivated ...
Let anyone ask a beautiful woman without wit whether she would be willing to exchange a small portion of her beauty for a sufficient dose of wit. If she speaks the truth, she will say, "No, I am satisfied to be as I am." But why is she satisfied? Because she is not aware of her own deficiency. Let an ugly but witty woman be asked if she would change her wit against beauty, and she will not hesitate in saying no. Why? Because, knowing the value of her wit, she is well aware that it is sufficient by itself to make her a queen in any society.
Giacomo Casanova Love Without Knowing Sayings By Giacomo Casanova: Beauty without wit offers love nothing but the material enjoyment of its physical charms, whilst
This is love. I have my self-consciousness not in myself but in the other. I am satisfied and have peace with myself only in this other and I AM only because I have peace with myself; if I did not have it then I would be a contradiction that falls to pieces. This other, because it likewise exists outside itself, has its self-consciousness only in me; and both the other and I are only this consciousness of being-outside-ourselves and of our identity; we are only this intuition, feeling, and knowledge of our unity. This is love, and without knowing that love is both a distinguishing and the sublation of this distinction, one speaks emptily of it.Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel Love Without Knowing Sayings By Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel: This is love. I have my self-consciousness not in myself but in the other. I
Sometimes what we call love is just a settling of old scores, or a seeking of forbidden pain, or a circuitous path to the kingdom of cruelty, or she may simply have confused lack of capital with heroism while searching for rescue without knowing from what.Anne Roiphe Love Without Knowing Sayings By Anne Roiphe: Sometimes what we call love is just a settling of old scores, or a seeking
Far too many times in life we throw ourselves
in ships without knowing how stable they
are, or how deep is the water for it to float.
Nomthandazo Tsembeni Love Without Knowing Sayings By Nomthandazo Tsembeni: Far too many times in life we throw ourselvesin ships without knowing how stable theyare,
When he stepped into the shower, the hit water scalded him. He let it run over his face, burning his eyelids. He put up with the pain, his jaw clenched and his muscles taut, suppressing the urge to howl with loneliness in the suffocating steam. For four years, one month, and twelve days, Nikon always got into the shower with him after they made love and soaped his back slowly, interminably. And often she put her arms around him, like a little girl in the rain. One day I'll leave without ever really knowing you. You'll remember my big, dark eyes. The reproachful silences. The moans of anxiety as I slept. The nightmares you couldn't save me from. You'll remember all this when I'm gone.Arturo Perez-Reverte Love Without Knowing Sayings By Arturo Perez-Reverte: When he stepped into the shower, the hit water scalded him. He let it run
A smile curled the corner of Xavier's mouth. "You didn't think I would let her walk out of my arms without knowing I would see her again soon, did you?"
Bryant shrugged. "Well, no. I guess not. What are you going to do now?"
The lid of the case slammed shut, and Xavier jerked his vibrating phone back out of his pocket. "Well, as soon as I get these fires extinguished, I'm going to go start one with her."
Bryant laughed. "After this long, that'll be one hell of a raging inferno."
"I hope so.
Justine Dell Love Without Knowing Sayings By Justine Dell: A smile curled the corner of Xavier's mouth. "You didn't think I would let her
I've never been in love. I will die without knowing what it feels like to need to see one person's face when you go to sleep at night, to crave seeing it when you wake up. I wish I knew.Libba Bray Love Without Knowing Sayings By Libba Bray: I've never been in love. I will die without knowing what it feels like to
He thought about that visionary lady. To die, he thought, never knowing the fierce joy and attendant comfort of a loved one's embrace. To sink into that hideous coma, to sink then into death and, perhaps, return to sterile, awful wanderings. All without knowing what it was to love and be loved.
That was a tragedy more terrible than becoming a vampire.
Richard Matheson Love Without Knowing Sayings By Richard Matheson: He thought about that visionary lady. To die, he thought, never knowing the fierce joy
A child's eyes, those clear, wells of undefiled thought - what on earth can be more beautiful? Full of hope, love and curiosity, they meet your own. In prayer, how earnest; in joy, how sparkling; in sympathy, how tender! The man who never tried the companionship of a little child has carelessly passed by one of the great pleasures of life, as one passes a rare flower without plucking it or knowing its valueCaroline Norton Love Without Knowing Sayings By Caroline Norton: A child's eyes, those clear, wells of undefiled thought - what on earth can be
The fact was that despite himself, without knowing why or how it had happened and very much against his better judgement, he had fallen hopelessly in love. He had fallen as if into some deep and muddy hole. By nature he was a delicate and sensitive soul. He had had ideals and dreamed of an exquisite and passionate affair. And now he had fallen for this little cricket of a creature. She was as stupid as every other woman and not even pretty to make up for it. Skinny and foul-tempered, she had taken possession of him entirely from tip to toe, body and soul. He had fallen under the omnipotent and mysterious spell of the female. He was overwhelmed by this colossal force of unknown origin, the demon in the flesh capable of hurling the most rational man in the world at the feet of a worthless harlot. There was no way he could explain its fatal and total power.Guy De Maupassant Love Without Knowing Sayings By Guy De Maupassant: The fact was that despite himself, without knowing why or how it had happened and
(Did you love your wife) I convinced myself I did when I married. I willed myself into the appropriate feelings without knowing what the appropriate feelings were. I endowed her with qualities she did not have and then despised her for not having them. Afterwards I might have learned to love her if I had thought more of her needs and less of my own.P.D. James Love Without Knowing Sayings By P.D. James: (Did you love your wife) I convinced myself I did when I married. I willed
And when I thought there was no God and no love and no mercy, you were leading me all the while into the midst of His love and His mercy and taking me, without my knowing anything about it, to the house that would hide me in the secret of His Face.Thomas Merton Love Without Knowing Sayings By Thomas Merton: And when I thought there was no God and no love and no mercy, you
Are not two sparrows sold for only a penny? But not one of them falls to the ground without your Father knowing it.Holy Bible Matthew 10 29 Love Without Knowing Sayings By Holy Bible Matthew 10 29: Are not two sparrows sold for only a penny? But not one of them falls
When we are separate from our knowing and from those we love and choose to live apart from the love of all peoples, we begin to die, that is to live without life, without joy.Flo Aeveia Magdalena Love Without Knowing Sayings By Flo Aeveia Magdalena: When we are separate from our knowing and from those we love and choose to
If the masses can love without knowing why, they also hate without much foundation.William Shakespeare Love Without Knowing Sayings By William Shakespeare: If the masses can love without knowing why, they also hate without much foundation.
Much of our suffering is caused by our false perceptions and attachment to mental images. We assume things to be true without really knowing whether they are true or not, then create a world of hurt for ourselves and others.Joseph P. Kauffman Love Without Knowing Sayings By Joseph P. Kauffman: Much of our suffering is caused by our false perceptions and attachment to mental images.
An earnest conjuration from the King,
As England was his faithful tributary,
As love between them like the palm might flourish,
As peace should still her wheaten garland wear
And stand a comma 'tween their amities,
And many such-like as's of great charge,
That, on the view and knowing of these contents,
Without debatement further, more or less,
He should the bearers put to sudden death,
Not shriving time allow'd.
William Shakespeare Love Without Knowing Sayings By William Shakespeare: An earnest conjuration from the King,As England was his faithful tributary,As love between them like

Afraid to Die Loveless
Because I think if you die without knowing love in this life, that's how you'll spend eternity.
Alone.

Ellen Hopkins Love Without Knowing Sayings By Ellen Hopkins: Afraid to Die LovelessBecause I think if you die without knowing love in this life,
I suddenly became conscious that, for the first time in my whole life, I was essential to somebody. I could not enter a room without realising that he was instantly aware of my presence; I could not leave a room without knowing that he would at once feel and regret my absence.Florence L. Barclay Love Without Knowing Sayings By Florence L. Barclay: I suddenly became conscious that, for the first time in my whole life, I was

All this happens without him knowing - they actually install cameras in his apartment and hire this girl to get him to fall in love with her so that she can be in the apartment and present him products without him knowing.Caroline Dhavernas Love Without Knowing Sayings By Caroline Dhavernas: All this happens without him knowing - they actually install cameras in his apartment and
Belief is intellectual, it involves thinking, and it is a learned conditioning from the outside world: Fear arises out of beliefs.
Trust is created by conscious knowing of truth from within. Trust does not involve thinking as it only needs ones awareness. It is the innocence of a baby who trusts its mother without any doubt: Love arises out of trust.
Premlatha Rajkumar Love Without Knowing Sayings By Premlatha Rajkumar: Belief is intellectual, it involves thinking, and it is a learned conditioning from the outside
When the meaning of life has been suppressed, there still remains life. "I live," says Ivan, "in spite of logic." And again: "If I no longer had any faith in life, if I doubted a woman I loved, or the universal order of things, if I were persuaded, on the contrary, that everything was only an infernal and accursed chaos - even then I would want to live." Ivan will live,
then, and will love as well "without knowing why." But to live is also to act. To act in the name of what?
If there is no immortality, then there is neither reward nor punishment. "I believe that there is no virtue
without immortality." And also: "I only know that suffering exists, that no one is guilty, that everything is
connected, that everything passes away and equals out." But if there is no virtue, there is no law:
"Everything is permitted.
Albert Camus Love Without Knowing Sayings By Albert Camus: When the meaning of life has been suppressed, there still remains life. "I live," says
There is only one thing worse than losing the one you love, and that is losing them without knowing why. If you are a dog, then your master is like a god to you, and the pain of losing him is greater still.Louis De Bernieres Love Without Knowing Sayings By Louis De Bernieres: There is only one thing worse than losing the one you love, and that is
PEOPLE CAN LOVE in different ways," I told David. "You can love full-on, with a lot of noise, or you can do it quietly, over the washing-up. You can even love a person without them knowing." I was careful to turn away.Rachel Joyce Love Without Knowing Sayings By Rachel Joyce: PEOPLE CAN LOVE in different ways," I told David. "You can love full-on, with a
Love is knowing someone so deeply, understanding her so completely, that you can finish her thoughts without hesitation, confident in reading her face, her body, even her slightest gesture means something to you.Richelle E. Goodrich Love Without Knowing Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: Love is knowing someone so deeply, understanding her so completely, that you can finish her
We see them as they cannot, will not, see each other
we see his heart in the way he looks at her; we see her soul calling out for his every touch. It would be so easy if they could only see inside each other as we can.
And yet, there is beauty in the way they find each other: slowly, in a fragile dance of sidelong glances and accidental touches. To see them come together, souls binding without knowing each other as we do, without being certain of what the other's heart holds, is to learn something new ...
Faith.
Amie Kaufman Love Without Knowing Sayings By Amie Kaufman: We see them as they cannot, will not, see each otherwe see his heart in
One of the most exquisite pleasures of human love - to serve the loved one without his knowing it - is only possible, as regards the love of God, through atheism.Simone Weil Love Without Knowing Sayings By Simone Weil: One of the most exquisite pleasures of human love - to serve the loved one
The call to faith, in this light, is not some test of a coy god, waiting to see if we "get it right." It is the only summons, issued under the only conditions, which can allow us fully to reveal who we are, what we most love, and what we most devoutly desire. Without constraint, without any form of mental compulsion, the act of belief becomes the freest possible projection of what resides in our hearts ... The greatest act of self-revelation occurs when we choose what we will believe, in that space of freedom that exists between knowing that a thing is, and knowing that a thing is not.Terryl L. Givens Love Without Knowing Sayings By Terryl L. Givens: The call to faith, in this light, is not some test of a coy god,
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms,
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers.
Thanks to your love a certain fragrance,
risen darkly from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride,
so I love you because I know no other way than this:
where "I" does not exist, nor "you,"
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
So close that your eyes close and I fall asleep.
Pablo Neruda Love Without Knowing Sayings By Pablo Neruda: I do not love you as if you were salt-rose or topaz,or the arrow of
You know, my love, you are not responsible for my happiness, or even my health. I've had a choice every step of the way, from our very first meeting. I chose you. Clearly, in my heart and in my head, I chose you. If I had it to do all over again, even knowing what I would have to go through, I would choose you without hesitation.Christine Feehan Love Without Knowing Sayings By Christine Feehan: You know, my love, you are not responsible for my happiness, or even my health.
I am asking you to marry me because I love you," he said, "because I cannot imagine living my life without you. I want to see your face in the morning, and then at night, and a hundred times in between. I want to grow old with you, I want to laugh with you, and I want to sigh to my friends about how managing you are, all the while secretly knowing I am the luckiest man in town."
"What?" she demanded.
He shrugged. "A man's got to keep up appearances. I'll be universally detested if everyone realizes how perfect you are.
Julia Quinn Love Without Knowing Sayings By Julia Quinn: I am asking you to marry me because I love you," he said, "because I
So we can't make marriage anything but the permanent sexual union of a man and a woman without undermining its central purpose of pointing us to the passionate consummation of God's love for his people. Knowing all of this is why my favorite moment of any wedding is when the groom looks down the aisle to see his bride walking toward him. That moment reminds me of Jesus looking down the aisle of history to his church with the same look of love on his face. That look being exchanged between two men or two women would imply that Jesus' role could be taken by any of us - that there is no essential difference between God and his people. That is not the case - and so that is not possible. Sexual difference matters that much. C.Ed Shaw Love Without Knowing Sayings By Ed Shaw: So we can't make marriage anything but the permanent sexual union of a man and
I love that blurry place where life's transitions are made without you even knowing it.Ann Brashares Love Without Knowing Sayings By Ann Brashares: I love that blurry place where life's transitions are made without you even knowing it.
Like most music that affects me deeply, I would never listen to it while others were around, just as I would not pass on a book that I especially loved to another. I am embarrassed to admit this, knowing that it reveals some essential lack or selfishness in my nature, and aware that it runs contrary to the instincts of most, whose passion for something leads them to want to share it, to ignite a similar passion in others, and that without the benefit of such enthusiasm I would still be ignorant of many of the books and much of the music I love most ... But rather than an expansion, I've always felt a diminishment of my own pleasure when I've invited someone else to take part in it, a rupture in the intimacy I felt with the work, an invasion of privacy. It is worst when someone else picks up the copy of a book I've just been enthralled by and begins casually to thumb through the pages.Nicole Krauss Love Without Knowing Sayings By Nicole Krauss: Like most music that affects me deeply, I would never listen to it while others
He stopped and took my hand. "If we die, or if I die ... "
He was speaking of dying, and I couldn't stop smiling.
In the dark he must not have noticed, because he said in a rush, "I must tell you that I love you, and if I live I will ask for your hand, but you needn't say anything now if it distresses you, and I might rather die without knowing that you don't love me if that's how you feel."
I tried to speak, but nothing came. I had gained courage during my adventures, but not for this.
"Addie?"
Too soft to hear, I whispered, "I do love you."
But he heard. He cupped his hand under my chin and tilted my face up so I had to meet his eyes. He was smiling too, with a smile as happy as mine. "Oh, Addie!" He leaned down to kiss me ...
Gail Carson Levine Love Without Knowing Sayings By Gail Carson Levine: He stopped and took my hand. "If we die, or if I die ... "He

I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.

Life is like an iceberg. Ninety percent is under the water, invisible to the naked eye. The only way to understand the supernatural world is through the Bible. I don't know how I existed without knowing God, or living in His love 24/7, or experiencing His peace no matter what the circumstances, or gaining His wisdom in all of life's choices. I can honestly say I now have no fear of lack, sickness, or even death.Sid Roth Love Without Knowing Sayings By Sid Roth: Life is like an iceberg. Ninety percent is under the water, invisible to the naked

I couldn't keep living this lie for a minute more. I've been sober for two hundred and eighty-three days. My sobriety requires me to apologize to you, but my heart can't take another day without you knowing how much I still love you, and how deeply sorry I am for the pain I've caused you.Kindle Alexander Love Without Knowing Sayings By Kindle Alexander: I couldn't keep living this lie for a minute more. I've been sober for two
I see you in every flower in the park, every color in a rainbow and in every scent that reminds me of the things I love.

For what is love if one loves a woman without knowing her? Just a decision to love? Or even an imitation? The question concerns us all: If, from our childhood on, the examples of love were not there inviting us to copy them, would we know what "loving" means?Milan Kundera Love Without Knowing Sayings By Milan Kundera: For what is love if one loves a woman without knowing her? Just a decision
All this time.
This was what was wrong with me. All this time I had been trying to figure out the secrets of the universe, the secrets of my own body, of my own heart. All of the answers had always been so close and yet I'd always fought them without even knowing it. From the minute I'd met Dante, I had fallen in love with him. I just didn't let myself know it, think it, feel it. My father was right. And it was true what my mother said. We all fight our own private wars.
Benjamin Alire Saenz Love Without Knowing Sayings By Benjamin Alire Saenz: All this time. This was what was wrong with me. All this time I had
Too many of us die without knowing transcendent joy, in part because we pursue one form or another of materialism. We seek meaning in possessions, in pursuit of cosmic justice for earthly grievances, in the acquisition of power over others. But one day Death reveals that life is wasted in these cold passions, because zealotry of any kind precludes love except of the thing that is idolized.Dean Koontz Love Without Knowing Sayings By Dean Koontz: Too many of us die without knowing transcendent joy, in part because we pursue one
I'm a Russian and all I know of Russia is what I've read. I yearn for the broad fields of golden corn and the forests of silver beech that I've read of in books and though I try and try, I can't see them with my mind's eye. I know Moscow from what I've seen of it at the cinema. I sometimes rack my brain to picture to myself a Russian village, the straggling village of log houses with their thatched roofs that you read about in Chekov, and it's no good, I know that what I see isn't that at all. I'm a Russian and I speak my native language worse than I speak English and French. When I read Tolstoi and Dostoievsky it is easier for me to read them in a translation. I'm just as much a foreigner to my own people as I am to the English and French. You who've got a home and a country, people who love you, people whose ways are your ways, whom you understand without knowing them - how can you tell what it is to belong nowhere?W. Somerset Maugham Love Without Knowing Sayings By W. Somerset Maugham: I'm a Russian and all I know of Russia is what I've read. I yearn
I want to listen to accomplished women scarred by sexism that still walk in elegance and kindness; hear powerful men that have a heart to serve. I want to talk to the brokenhearted that still believe in love; I want to listen to people that laugh even when they hurt. You live God's grace without even knowing it and to me, you're the best of all of us.Lee Goff Love Without Knowing Sayings By Lee Goff: I want to listen to accomplished women scarred by sexism that still walk in elegance
But the way I see it, dying without knowing love would be a tragedy.Francine Pascal Love Without Knowing Sayings By Francine Pascal: But the way I see it, dying without knowing love would be a tragedy.
If only she could be so oblivious again, to feel such love without knowing it, mistaking it for laughter.Markus Zusak Love Without Knowing Sayings By Markus Zusak: If only she could be so oblivious again, to feel such love without knowing it,
Laura, this isn't love. Love lets you go on a trip without following you. Love can live without you for a week, knowing you'll come back.'
'No, it can't.' The afternoon shadows grew long and cold. In spite of the chill, a heat rose up inside her and flooded her face. 'That's how you know it's true love. When he can't live without you.'
Karen shook her head. 'That's how you know it's obsession. Or something else.

Was I still myself? If so, who was I? I wasn't really interested in knowing that. It had no sort of importance for me anymore. Some moorings had broken, some taboos had fallen, and a world of spells and anathemas was springing up from their ruins. What was terrifying about this whole affair was the ease with which I passed from one universe to another without feeling out of place. Such a smooth transition. I had gone to bed a docile, courteous boy, and I'd awakened with an inextinguishable rage lodged in my very flesh. I carried my hatred like a second nature; it was my armor and my shirt of Nessus, my pedestal and my stake; it was all that remained to me in this false, unjust, arid, and cruel life.Yasmina Khadra Love Without Knowing Sayings By Yasmina Khadra: Was I still myself?

Jack: Rose, you're no picnic, all right? You're a spoiled little brat, even, but under that, you're the most amazingly, astounding, wonderful girl, woman that I've ever known ...
Rose: Jack, I ...
Jack: No, let me try and get this out. You're ama- I'm not an idiot, I know how the world works. I've got ten bucks in my pocket, I have no-nothing to offer you and I know that. I understand. But I'm too involved now. You jump, I jump remember? I can't turn away without knowing you'll be all right ... That's all that I want.
Rose: Well, I'm fine ... I'll be fine ... really.
Jack: Really? I don't think so. They've got you trapped, Rose. And you're gonna die if you don't break free. Maybe not right away because you're strong but ... sooner or later that fire that I love about you, Rose ... that fire's gonna burn out ...
Rose: It's not up to you to save me, Jack.
Jack: You're right ... only you can do that.

The only way of knowing a person is to love them without hope.Walter Benjamin Love Without Knowing Sayings By Walter Benjamin: The only way of knowing a person is to love them without hope.
I don't love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as certain dark things are loved,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that doesn't bloom and carries
hidden within itself the light of those flowers,
and thanks to your love, darkly in my body
lives the dense fragrance that rises from the earth.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I don't know any other way of loving
but this, in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close.
Pablo Neruda Love Without Knowing Sayings By Pablo Neruda: I don't love you as if you were the salt-rose, topazor arrow of carnations that
Fully engrossed, until now, in picturing romantic ways of seeing him and getting to know him and certain she would carry them out as soon as she wished, she had been living on that yearning and that hope, without, perhaps, realizing it. But this desire had implanted itself into her by sending out a thousand imperceptible roots, which had plunged into all her most unconscious minutes of happiness or melancholy, filling them with a new sap without her knowing where it came from. And now this desire had been ripped out and tossed away as impossible. She felt lacerated, suffering horribly in her entire self, which had been suddenly uprooted; and from the depths of her sorrow through the abruptly exposed lies of her hope, she saw the reality of her love.Marcel Proust Love Without Knowing Sayings By Marcel Proust: Fully engrossed, until now, in picturing romantic ways of seeing him and getting to know
Ethan, I love you. Don't leave me. I can't do this without you.
If there was moonlight, I could have seen his face. But there was no moon, not now, and the only light came from the fire, still frozen, surrounding me on every side. The sky was empty, absolutely black. There was nothing. I had lost everything tonight.
I sobbed until I couldn't breathe and my fingers slipped through his, knowing I would never feel those fingers in my hair again.
Ethan.

Now Juan could not understand a word, Being no Grecian; but he had an ear, And her voice was the warble of a bird, ...

I love you between shadow and soul. I love you as the plant that hasn't bloomed yet, and carries hidden within itself the light of flowers. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. Because of you, the dense fragrance that rises from the earth lives in my body, rioting with hunger for the eternity of our victorious kisses.Pablo Neruda Love Without Knowing Sayings By Pablo Neruda: I love you between shadow and soul.

Love is a decision.

It's not an emotion that we see on movie screens or read about in books. It isn't the dramatic crescendo that leads to happily ever after.

Love is hard work.

It's the decision you make, knowing your differences, knowing your flaws, but choosing anyway, because you can't imagine life without that person.

What mattered most was knowing that love was mine to give, without strings or expectations.Nicholas Sparks Love Without Knowing Sayings By Nicholas Sparks: What mattered most was knowing that love was mine to give, without strings or expectations.
This is your love; it has to be. I can't breathe. I can't fucking breathe without you, Synthia Raine. You weren't supposed to leave me, Pet; that wasn't the deal. I told you I would find you, damn you. How could you run from me in death where I cannot follow you? This isn't right, but I get it now, you taught me. I know what love is, and it hurts. It's tearing me apart, and I find I don't enjoy it at all. Had you told me of this kind of pain, I'd have denied wanting it. I'd have lied if I could have. But if not feeling this pain meant never knowing you, I'd feel it again and again - just for you. I'd do it all again for one more moment with you.Amelia Hutchins Love Without Knowing Sayings By Amelia Hutchins: This is your love; it has to be. I can't breathe. I can't fucking breathe
Respect the man of noble races other than your own, who carries out, in a different place, a combat parallel to yours
to ours. He is your ally. He is our ally, be he at the other end of the world.
Love all living things whose humble task is not opposed in any way to yours, to ours: men with simple hearts, honest, without vanity and malice, and all the animals, because they are beautiful, without exception and without exception indifferent to whatever "idea" there may be. Love them, and you will see the eternal in the glance of their eyes of jet, amber, or emerald. Love also the trees, the plants, the water that runs though the meadow and on to the sea without knowing where it goes; love the mountain, the desert, the forest, the immense sky, full of light or full of clouds; because all these exceed man and reveal the eternal to you.

The shock caused by the fall of a careless word displaces that against which it strikes. At times it happens, without our knowing why, that because we have received an almost imperceptible blow from a chance word, the heart insensibly empties itself of love. He who loves, perceives a decline in his happiness. There is nothing more to be dreaded than this slow exudation from the fissure in the vase.Victor Hugo Love Without Knowing Sayings By Victor Hugo: The shock caused by the fall of a careless word displaces that against which it
And if anger and fear could persist - then also, of course, stronger emotions could as well, such as love. Was that what drew some people back to reincarnate within their own families? Was that what caused some children to remember their past connections? And if so, then perhaps this phenomenon, these children's memories he had studied so carefully, was not against the laws of nature, after all. Perhaps it was the foundational law of nature that they were proving, what he'd been documenting and analyzing for over thirty years without knowing it: the force of love. He shook his head. His brain was going soft, maybe. Or maybe not. He'd kept so many of these questions at bay all these years, and now they whirled around him, touching him with something like awe, on their way to someplace else.Sharon Guskin Love Without Knowing Sayings By Sharon Guskin: And if anger and fear could persist - then also, of course, stronger emotions could
Sure, occasionally a certain sappy song or romantic movie would come on, and you'd wonder what he or she was up to, but there was no way to know. Of course, you could always pick up the phone (and more recently, text or e-mail), but that would require that person's knowing you were thinking of him or her. Where's the fun in that? You never want them to know you're thinking of them, so you refrain. Before long the memories start to fade. One day, you realize you can't quite remember how she smelled or the exact color of his eyes. Eventually, without ever knowing it, you just forget that person altogether. You replace old memories with new ones, and life goes on. It was the clean break you needed to move forward.Brandi Glanville Love Without Knowing Sayings By Brandi Glanville: Sure, occasionally a certain sappy song or romantic movie would come on, and you'd wonder
I would like to raise them as I was. I would like for them to learn naturally, effortlessly, almost without knowing it, that the love of beautiful things, critical thinking, and intellectual honesty are the three essential virtues. This way, they will like things for themselves, will judge for themselves. This way, they will be real men, as there used to be, they won't be fooled by intellectual snobs and political scoundrels. They will know how to live above and outside of a century which is only getting deeper into infamy, lies, and stupidity. I love you my dears because I know that it is because of you that I possess some of these virtues that I wish for them to have.Sean B. Carroll Love Without Knowing Sayings By Sean B.

Don't let yourself die without knowing the wonder of fucking with love.Gabriel Garcia Marquez Love Without Knowing Sayings By Gabriel Garcia Marquez: Don't let yourself die without knowing the wonder of fucking with love.
To respect a person is not possible without knowing him; care and responsibility would be blind if they were not guided by knowledge. Knowledge would be empty if it were not motivated by concern. There are many layers of knowledge; the knowledge which is an aspect of love is one which does not stay at the periphery, but penetrates to the core. It is possible only when I can transcend the concern for myself and see the other person in his own terms. I may know, for instance, that a person is angry, even if he does not show it overtly; but I may know him more deeply than that; then I know that he is anxious, and worried; that he feels lonely, that he feels guilty. Then I know that his anger is only the manifestation of something deeper, and I see him as anxious and embarrassed, that is, as the suffering person, rather than as the angry one.Erich Fromm Love Without Knowing Sayings By Erich Fromm: To respect a person is not possible without knowing him; care and responsibility would be

The man who is contented to be only himself, and therefore less a self, is in prison. My own eyes are not enough for me, I will see through those of others. Reality, even seen through the eyes of many, is not enough. I will see what others have invented. Even the eyes of all humanity are not enough. I regret that the brutes connot write books. Very gladly would I learn what face things present to a mouse or a bee; more gladly still would I perceive the olfactory world charged with all the information and emotion it carries for a dog. Literary experience heals the wound, without undermining the privilege, of individuality ... in reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. Like the night sky in the Greek poem, I see with a myriad of eyes, but it is still I who see. Here, as in worship, in love, in moral action, and in knowing, I transcend myself; and am never more myself than when I do.C.S. Lewis Love Without Knowing Sayings By C.S. Lewis: The man who is contented to be only himself, and therefore less a self, is
There are many forms of love and affection, some people can spend their whole lives together without knowing each other's names. Naming is a difficult and time-consuming process; it concerns essences, and it means power. But on the wild nights who can call you home? Only the one who knows your name.Jeanette Winterson Love Without Knowing Sayings By Jeanette Winterson: There are many forms of love and affection, some people can spend their whole lives

"I know," says Ai, "but this man comes alone. He says he comes to this room and thinks about the lovers who have been here before him, imagines himself as one of them, imagines himself having someone to hold. He tells whoever is reading this that he's grateful for the love we share without knowing.

So they gave me love in form of poison and tiny little pills, programming my emotions, teaching me how to feel. To act correct and talk correct and answer without knowing the question, because that, my dear, is how you get love. Yes that, dear youth, is how you'll be loved. I tried to medicate my own fucked up little mind with chemicals and adrenaline, tasting sweeter every night, shaking louder every time. Sitting wide awake in bed until the world disappears, writing poetry to concentrate on something real while waiting for the love to arrive.
I've been looking for it night after night, waiting patiently for it to show up, maybe somewhere in between the state of awake and asleep, alive and not so alive, sober and not so sober.
(I lost track of the difference somewhere in between.)

BEING TAKEN

When you begin to surrender, forget yourself. Become senseless with no motive, so you can be blown from east to west and back without knowing anything, or caring either. It would not be surprising if in such mindlessness your essential being went hundreds of miles without you being aware of it.

We see such wandering in the clouds and the waters. The forests and the crops too in their ways travel with caravans of people along the earth. God takes our souls on journeys he knows nothing of. Why? We don't know, being as we are the passed-out reveler laid in a wagon and driven elsewhere. What we love, what we want, is this being held in the presence, this being taken. That is the satisfaction, not learning why or how or where we are, or when we'll arrive somewhere else.
