Quotes Containing love:
Erich Fromm: 'Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.'
Jack Grimaldi (Gary Oldman) in Romeo is Bleeding (1993): 'You don't own love ; love owns you.'
Sonja (Diane Keaton) to young Natasha (Jessica Harper) in Love and Death (1975): 'Natasha, to love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love . But then one suffers from not loving . Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love . To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love , or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down .'

Charles Panati. Sexy Origins and Intimate Things (1998): 'Early love , chemically based, is when you love the way the other person makes you feel. It is self-centered, feel-good love . Mature love , which comes later in a relationship , is love for whoever a person is. It is other-centered.'

Love is just a beast that you feed all through the night and when the morning comes, love dies. ' And later: 'To me love is only a little warmth in all this cold , just a little light in all this darkness, one little minute to lie still in the beloved's arms, one little minute to forget and that's all.'
Charley (Jack Nicholson) to Irene (Kathleen Turner) in Prizzi's Honor (1985): 'That ain't love . In-love is temporary. Then you move on to the next in-love. Everybody is always falling in and out of love .'

Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) to Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) in When Harry Met Sally (1989): ''I love that you get cold when it''s 71 out . I love that you take an hour and a half to order a sandwich . I love that you get-a-little crinkle above your nose when you look on me like I''m nuts . I love that after I spend a day with you I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it''s not because I''m lonely. And it''s not because it''s New Year''s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realise you want to spend the rest of your life with someboby, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.''

Dr. Louis Levy (Martin Bergmann) at the end of Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989): 'You will notice that what we are aiming at when we fall in-love is a very strange paradox. The paradox consists of the fact that when we fall in-love we are seeking to re-find all or some of the people to whom we were attached as children. On the other hand we ask our beloved to correct all of the wrongs that these early parents or siblings inflicted upon us so that love contains in it the contradiction: the attempt to return to the past and the attempt to undo the past.'

For a period of time between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when people spoke of "the sex ," they had women in mind.''
