So many things were written about love, so I thought I don't have to rake my brain I just add my opinion, as others found it for me instead :

Love the heart that hurts you, but never hurt the heart that loves you. For that I am not a good person at all, if somebody hurts my heart, I don't love him, and I am afraid I certainly hurt hearts who loved me !

There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread. I don't know but when I am hungry I prefer bread to love !

A man is not where he lives, but where he loves. Hey, I am against mistresses !

Love is blind ! I wear glasses !

Make love not war ! was always my device

Love is the only gold. I have my doubts when I see a 20 year old marrying an 80 year old millionaire

I agree more with international proverbs :

- One who loves the vase loves also what is inside.
African Proverb

- In order to really love someone you must love him as though he was going to die tomorrow.
Arabian Proverb

- Where there is love there is no darkness.
Burundi Proverb from Burundi

- Love and let the world know, hate in silence.
Egyptian Proverb

- When one is in love, a cliff becomes a meadow.
Ethiopian Proverb

- The first love letters are written with the eyes.
French Proverb

- The heart that loves is always young.
Greek Proverb

- Love is like fog -- there is no mountain on which it does not rest.
Hawaiian Proverb

- It is love that makes the impossible possible.
Indian Proverb

- Love rules without rules.
Italian Proverb

- Where there is love, there is peace.
Myanmar Proverb

- A heart in love with beauty never grows old.
Turkish Proverb

And when you still don't know what Love is, I can't help you !
