Ukrainian quotes about marriage and love

Original quotes from Ukrainian authors


  • Quotes by Volodymyr Vinnichenko, Ukrainian political and public figure, prose righter and artist of the 20th century


“Love is a cry of blood, it makes people thoughtless, as it is an invincible famine of the body, it is an order of eternity that does not give a chance to resist. Love devours itself as a fire, and when satisfied, leaves boring gray ash.”

“Love is a germ, it is a penetration into the darkest corners of another person’s being. Love comes late, after sympathy, after orgies and greedy cries, after fierce, wild whispers of thirst. Love goes quietly, silently, with an attentive look, and a mysterious smile. Love is blind, wild, its nostrils widely open, it has twisted fingers, poured on everything that can be satisfied. You can love two, three, five, as much as enough body and fire at the same time.”

“You can only love one and only person at a time. You can live only for one soul, and only love can make can fill every cell to the last one.”

“Love comes at our life unexpectedly, without warning, and can disappear with the same surprise and unexpectedness.”

“Love is earned gradually, with suffering, through everyday troubles, in the dust of everyday adventures, then it comes unnoticed, becomes a mistress and leaves with torment and death.”

“Love only loves itself and for itself. When the suffering of a loved one brings enjoyment, love will seek only the suffering of a beloved.”

“Love gives itself to anyone. The suffering of a loved excludes the joy of the loving.”

“Sympathy is the bloom that a rare vegetable grows from; this vegetable is called love. Without color, there is no fetus, but the color is not a fruit and not every flower transforms into fruit. Thousands of love fall into barren, crumbling, failing to blossom into the grain of love.”


  • Oles Gonchar, poet, writer, literary critic of the end of the 20th century


“Freedom and love are two bearing wings of poetry! Everything else is only a decoration.”
