C.S. Lewis

“Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved
person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained”

“Many things – such as loving, going to sleep, or behaving unaffectedly – are done worst when we try hardest to do them”

“This is one of the miracles of love: It gives a power of seeing through its own enchantments and yet not being disenchanted”
