Famous Quotes about self-confidence

Jeanette Winterson famous quote #430

Love they say enslaves and passion is a demon and many have been lost for love. I know this is true but I know too that without love we grope the tunnels of our lives and never see the sun. When I fell in love it was as though I looked into a mirror for the first time and saw myself. I lifted my hand in bewilderment and felt my cheeks my neck. This was me. And when I had looked at myself and grown accustomed to who I was I was not afraid to hate parts of me because I wanted to be worthy of the mirror bearer.

Karen Marie Moning quote #215 from Dreamfever

Although love could grow in times of peace it tempered in battle. Daddy told me once - when Id said something about how perfect his relationship with Mom was - that I should have seen the first five years of their marriage that theyd fought like hellions crashed into each other like two giant stones. That eventually theyd eroded each other into the perfect fit become a single wall nestled into each others curves and hollows her strengths chinking his weaknesses her weaknesses reinforced by his strengths.

Graham Greene quote #379 from The End of the Affair

I have loved no part of the world like this and I have loved no women as I love you. Youre my human Africa. I love your smell as I love these smells. I love your dark bush as I love the bush here you change with the light as this place does so that one all the time is loving something different and yet the same. I want to spill myself out into you as I want to die here.

Khalil Gibran quote #71 from The Prophet

When love beckons to you follow himThough his ways are hard and steep.And When his wings enfold you yield to himThough the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.And When he speaks to you believe in himThough his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden...But if in your fear you would seek only loves peace and loves pleasureThen it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out ofloves threshing-floorInto the seasonless world where you shall laugh but not all of your laughter and weep but not all of your tears...But if you love and must needs have desires let these be your desiresTo melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.To know the pain of too much tenderness.To be wounded by your own understanding of loveAnd to bleed willingly and joyfully.
