Marie Stopes says:

mariestopes” In love it is not only that the yearning of the bonds of affinity to be satisfied is met by the linking with another, but that out of this union there grows a new and unprecedented creation. “


Together, united by the love bonds which hold them, they are a new and wondrous thing surpassing, and different from, the arithmetical sum of them both when separate. “


Lenore Kandel says:

kandel” I cannot be satisfied
until I speak with angels
I require to behold
the eye of god

to cast my own being
into the cosmos as
bait for miracles

to breath air and spew visions
to unlock that door which stands already open
and enter into the presence
of that which I cannot imagine “

Marie Under says:


” Ah, earthly life burns in a myriad splendours
Not even death’s dark hazard can destroy.
I yield, a willing prisoner, to joy;
I never sorted with discreet pretenders.

And as the shaken glaucous wave engenders
Spindrift, so my green falling silks deploy
A froth, and all is stripped to the last toy,
And, caught in ecstasy, my sense surrenders.

Why does the blossom wanton in the light,
The blue horizon lure me to its border?
My body too is of their bent and order:

My every nerve vibrates to rapt delight,
And I distrain my life of its last treasure
As if my mounting days
had brimmed their measure. “

Hermann Hesse says:


“So she thoroughly taught him that one cannot take pleasure without giving pleasure,
and that every gesture,
every caress,
every touch,
every glance,
every last bit of the body has its secret,
which brings happiness to the person who knows how to wake it.

She taught him that after a celebration of love the lovers should not part without admiring each other, without being conquered or having conquered,
so that neither is bleak or glutted or has the bad feeling of being used or misused.”
