Some inspirational quotes that have been mainstay favorites of mine over the years. I'm a huge fan of C.S. Lewis' and Tolkien's religious works as most of my friends know.

The event of falling in love... in one high bound it has overleaped the massive wall of our selfhood; it has made appetite itself altruistic, tossed personal happiness aside as a triviality and planted the interests of another in the centre of our being. - C.S. Lewis

We need others. We need others to love and we need to be loved by them. There is no doubt that without it, we too, like the infant left alone, would cease to grow, cease to develop, choose madness and even death. - Leo Buscaglia

"God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world." C.S. Lewis

Why love if losing hurts so much? We love to know that we are not alone. - C.S. Lewis

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." -J.R.R. Tolkien

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is mingled with grief, love grows perhaps the greater. -The Fellowship Of The Ring
