Robert G Ingersoll Love Quotes and Sayings
1. I would rather live and love where death is king than have eternal life where love is not.
2. It is a splendid thing to think that the woman you really love will never grow old to you. Through the wrinkles of time, through the mask of years, if you really love her, you will always see the face you love and won. And a woman who really loves a man does not see that he grows old; he is not decrepit to her; she always sees the same gallant gentleman who won her hand and heart.
