‘Disaster does not matter, intensity does.’ (Why I love…) – Jeanette Winterson

“For me, if I love, it doesn’t stop, even if the shape changes.  Love is as strong as death.”

‘I fell in love, and with all the recklessness of love, I had no idea what I was doing until it was far too late to get out…’

“It is impossible to fall out of love. Love is such a powerful emotion, that once it envelops you it does not depart. True love is eternal.If you think that you were once in love, but fell out of it, then it wasn’t love you were in. There are no ‘exit’ signs in love, there is only an ‘on’ ramp.”


‘I love you is always a quotation, and it is the least original thing that any of us can say, but just as it must be often said, it must be sincerely said, and as if for the first time, on a planet new-made from love.’

“Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you I had no control over.”

Anything with love in it always has a bit of a muddle in it, because love is chaotic and exuberant as well as careful and dedicated.’

‘What is more humiliating than finding the object of your love unworthy?’

‘Desire deserves respect.
It is worth the chaos.
But it is not love, and only love is worth everything.’

‘Your weak point is the open, vulnerable place where you can always be hurt. Love, in all its aspects, opens the self so fully.’

You never give away your heart; you lend it from time to time. If it were not so, how could we take it back without asking?’
