Beads of wisdom about love/Zrnca mudrosti o ljubavi

Updated: Mar 7, 2022


During my recent stay in Zagreb, I went through some old books, several of which I took with me to England. One of these books is a small booklet entitled "Beads of Wisdom about Love". I only realized in England that it was not mine, by the dedication in the front page. Yet I read the book and it inspired me for this article. Some of the love quotes listed here are from that book, and some I found online:



“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Lao Tzu (571 BC) - an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer.


"I have learned not to worry about love; but to honour its coming with all my heart." Alice Walker (1944-) – American novelist, poet and social activist.


“Who so loves believes the impossible.”

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) – an English poet of Victorian era.


“Immature love says: ‘I love you because I need you.’ Mature love says, ‘I need you because I love you.’”

Erich Fromm (1900-1980) - a German psychologist, psychoanalyst, sociologist, humanistic philosopher, and democratic socialist.


“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.”

Elbert Hubbard (1856-1916) – an American writer, publisher, artist and philosopher.

The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.”

Hubert H. Humphrey (1911-1978) – an American politician


“The best proof of love is trust.”

Joyce Diane Brothers (1927-2013) – an American psychologist, TV personality and writer.


“He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” Wuthering Heights Emily Brontë (1818-1848), an English novelist and poet.


“I love the ground under his feet, and the air over his head, and everything he touches, and every word he says. I love all his looks, and all his actions, and him entirely and altogether.” Wuthering Heights Emily Brontë (1818-1848), an English novelist and poet.


“Believe me, a woman's heart never respects a man so much as when it is imbued with and committed to its great goals.” Marija Jurić Zagorka (1873-1957) – Croatian journalist, writer and human rights activist.


"Wisdom and love are not sisters, but the will can make them friends." Marija Jurić Zagorka (1873-1957) – Croatian journalist, writer and human rights activist.


“When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew it.” William Shakespeare (1564-1616) – an English playwright, poet and actor.

Zrnca mudrosti o ljubavi


Tokom mog nedavnog boravka u Zagrebu prošla sam kroz neke stare knjige od kojih sam nekoliko ponijela sa sobom u Englesku. Jedna od tih knjiga je mala knjižica pod naslovom “Zrnca mudrosti o ljubavi” za koju sam tek u Engleskoj shvatila da nije moja, po posveti na njoj. Ipak pročitala sam knjigu i ona me inspirirala za ovaj članak. Neki od ovdje navedenih citata o ljubavi su iz te knjige, a neke sam našala putem interneta:


"Biti duboko voljen od nekoga daje vam snagu, a duboko voljeti nekoga daje vam hrabrost." Lao Tzu (571. pr. Kr.) - drevni kineski filozof i književnik.


"Naučila sam ne brinuti zbog ljubavi; nego cijelim srcem poštovati njezin dolazak." Alice Walker (1944.-)-američka spisateljica, pjesnikinja i društvena aktivistica.


“Tko voli…vjeruje u nemoguće” Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) – Engleska pjesnikinja iz Viktorijanskog doba.


"Nezrela ljubav kaže:" Volim te jer mi trebaš. "Zrela ljubav kaže:" Trebam te jer te volim. "" Erich Fromm (1900. -1980.) - njemački psiholog, sociolog, filozof i demokratski socijalist.


"Prijatelj je neko ko zna sve o tebi i još uvijek te voli." Elbert Hubbard (1856-1916)-američki književnik, izdavač, umjetnik i filozof.


"Najbolji dokaz ljubavi je povjerenje." Joyce Diane Brothers (1927.-2013.)-američka psihologinja, TV ličnost i spisateljica.


“On je više ja nego ja sama. Od čega god da su naše duše napravljene, njegova i moja su iste. ” Orkanski visovi Emily Brontë (1818-1848), engleska književnica i pjesnikinja.


“Volim tlo pod njegovim nogama, zrak iznad glave i sve što dodirne i svaku riječ koju izgovori. Volim sav njegov izgled, i sve njegove postupke, i njega u cijelosti i u cjelini. ” Orkanski visovi Emily Brontë (1818-1848), engleska književnica i pjesnikinja.


“Vjerujte, nikad žensko srce toliko ne poštuje muškarca nego kad je sav prožet i predan svojim velikim ciljevima.” Marija Jurić Zagorka (1873-1957) – Hrvatska novinarka, pisac i borac za ljudska prava


“Mudrost i ljubav nisu sestre, ali volja ih može učiniti prijateljicama” Marija Jurić Zagorka (1873-1957) – Hrvatska novinarka, pisac i borac za ljudska prava

"Kad sam te vidio, zaljubio sam se, a ti si se nasmiješila jer si to znala." William Shakespeare (1564-1616)-engleski dramatičar, pjesnik i glumac.


S ljubavlju,

Kristina
