Thomas Moore Quotes

Finding the right work is like discovering your own soul in the world.

That star on life's tremulous ocean.

There's nothing half so sweet in life as love's young dream.

When soul is neglected, it doesn't just go away;

Music, oh, how faint, how weak,
Language fades before thy spell!

When thou canst breathe her soul so well?

It may help us, in those times of trouble, to remember that love is not only about relationship, it is also an affair of the soul.

Gnostic tales tell of the homesickness of the soul, its yearning for its own milieu…

Romantic love is an illusion. Most of us discover this truth at the end of a love affair or else when the sweet emotions of love lead us into marriage and then turn down their flames
