The Goddess'
Favorite Quotes on Love and Sex

Unless it's mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it's a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life — love shouldn't be one of them.

The greatest gift one can receive is the unconditional love of another...if you have it, cherish it...if you don't, seek it. All wisdom is already within us; all love is already within us, all joy. Yet they are hidden within us until the heart opens.
— The Goddess

With a charm!
Be a man and fold me
With thine arm!

I see sacred sex not about "maximalization" but about complementation. Fitting together with someone is an amazing experience, and fitting complementary parts of oneself together likewise. Bringing such things together is truly sacred. Masculine and feminine, logic and intuition, spirit and matter — these are all complementary things that create enormous beauty when harmonized.

Try to find the beauty and the gentleness in love which remains about and around you, and let this help you through your sorrows. And ever has it been that love knows not it's own depth until the hour of separation.
— Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

From a pure heart comes pure love. This reads backwards also. From pure love comes a pure heart. If we could learn to have a pure heart we could practice pure love. If we strive to practice pure love, we are learning to have a pure heart. This goes for all aspects of our lives. If we practice sexuality with the goal of creating illumination, health, and higher powers, we will produce those things.

Is not a kiss the very autograph of love?
— Henry Finck

Unless it's mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it's a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life — love shouldn't be one of them.
— From the movie "Dream for an Insomniac"

But if in your fear
you would seek
only love's peace
and love's pleasure,
Then it is better for you
that you cover your nakedness
and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world
where you shall laugh,
but not all of your laughter,
and weep,
but not all of your tears.
— Kahil Gibran, The Prophet

The soul that can speak through the eyes can also kiss with a gaze.

Whatever stirs this mortal frame
All are but ministers of Love
And feed his sacred flame.

Doubt that the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
— William Shakespeare, from "Hamlet"

Give me a kiss, and to that kiss a score;
Then to that twenty, add a hundred more:
A thousand to that hundred: so kiss on,
To make that thousand up a million.
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let's kiss afresh, as when we first begun.

Yet regardless if you love them, hate them, wish they would die or know that you would die without matters not. Because once in your life, whatever they were to the world they become everything to you. When you look them in the eyes, traveling to the depths of their souls and you say a million things without trace of a sound, you know that your own life is inevitably consumed within the rhythmic beatings of their very heart. We love them for a million reasons. No words would do it justice. It is a thing not of the mind but of the heart. A feeling. Only felt.

I want to hold you in my arms, gently
Beyond sex and security, prestige and triumph,
to say once and for all, "I love you",
and mean it from the top of my head to-the-depths of my soul
This is the love that casts out fear that makes life worth living
That takes a man and woman on the earth and lifts them finally
above every power or pain that could wound them
I have seen so many sights, heard so many words but none as beautiful
As the sight and sound of a man and woman
Who say with their every act
Their eyes and all their being

Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves.
— Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Love is the language our hearts use to speak to one another. For you, my dear, my heart sings.
— Amanda R. Byrd

The most eloquent silence; that of two mouths meeting in a kiss.

When you kiss me, without uttering a single word, you speak to my soul.

When it comes to true love, we are all submissive. For in order to truly love we must submit of ourselves and them to us.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength; while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
— Lao Tzu

The giving of love is an education in itself.
— Eleanor Roosevelt

And when I'm right...I'm also wrong
Give and get along
There's so much more to this then I ever dreamed.
And when you smile...I have to laugh
When you cry...I'm torn in half
So calm and yet so loose at the seams
Hold me close, don't ever let me go,
I'm confused but maybe someday I will know.

My love for him is a journey; starting at forever, and ending at never.

We are never so helplessly unhappy as when we lose love.
— Freud

Love is when thoughts of but one man fill your heart, when he means more than life to you, when you know you would do anything for him and shall die if he is taken from you. Desire is when you ache to see him and touch him, when he causes your body to burn and tremble. Desire does not demand love before it can ensnare you, but desire with love creates a powerful bond.
— Janelle Taylor

If we deny love that is given to us, if we refuse to give love because we fear pain or loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss greater.
