Robert Louis Stevenson Quotes on Love (16 Quotes)


    So long as we love, we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I should say that we are almost indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.

    And by the folded lawns all day -
    No idle gods for such a land -
    All active Love should take its way
    With active Labour hand in hand.

    My love was warm; for that I crossed
    The mountains and the sea,
    Nor counted that endeavour lost
    That gave my love to me.

    That a man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children who has filled his niche and accomplished his task who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.

    It is not likely that posterity will fall in love with us, but not impossible that it may respect or sympathize; so a man would rather leave behind him the portrait of his spirit than a portrait of his face.


    You shall speak her soft and fair:
    See - you shall say - the love they send
    To greet their unforgotten friend!

    A little love is none at all
    That wanders or that fears;
    A hearty love dwells still at call
    To kisses or to tears.


    Love but my dog and love my love,
    Adore with me a common star -
    I value not the rest above
    The ashes of a bad cigar.

    Love, and the love of life and act
    Dance, live and sing through all our furrowed tract;
    Till the great God enamoured gives
    To him who reads, to him who lives,
    That rare and fair romantic strain
    That whoso hears must hear again.


    If that indeed were love at all,
    As still, my love, I trow,
    By what dear name am I to call
    The bond that holds me now

    For memories of love are more
    Than the white moon there above,
    And dearer than quiet moonshine
    Are the thoughts of her I love.

    Small is the trust when love is green
    In sap of early years;
    A little thing steps in between
    And kisses turn to tears.


    He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children who has filled his niche and accomplished his task, who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauties, nor failed to express it who has always looked for the best in others and given the best he had whose life is an inspiration whose memory a benediction.
