Platonic Love


Platonic love is a type of love that is chaste and non-sexual. It is beyond all desires and wishes.


Plato on Love quotes

At the touch of love
everyone becomes a poet.

Vadim Kotelnikov

Thank you for the spring and for the dawn
Though I'm to greet them ‒ day by day ‒ alone.

The term 'Platonic Love' is named after Plato, who philosophized about the nature of love. With genuine platonic love, the beautiful or lovely other person inspires the mind and the soul and directs one's attention to spiritual things.

Socrates, in Plato's "Symposium", explained two types of love or Eros—Vulgar Eros or earthly love and Divine Eros or divine love. Vulgar Eros is nothing but mere material attraction towards a beautiful body for physical pleasure and reproduction. Divine Eros begins the journey from physical attraction i.e. attraction towards beautiful form or body but transcends gradually to love for Supreme Beauty.

This concept of Divine Eros is later transformed into the term Platonic love.

Plato on Love quotes

Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back.

Marina Tsvetaeva love verses for him, to mother, to life

I thank you with my hand and all my heart
For loving me (that you don’t even know!)




Plato on Love quotes

Love is the joy of the good, the wonder of the wise, the amazement of the Gods.

William Shakespeare - Love Ambassador

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life.

Oscar Wilde

Even before I met you
I was far from indifferent to you.

Leo Tolstoy

And those who only know the non-platonic love have no need to talk of tragedy. In such love there can be no sort of tragedy.


"For love is a celestial harmony
Of likely hearts compos'd of stars' concent,
Which join together in sweet sympathy,
To work each other's joy and true content,
Which they have harbour'd since their first descent
Out of their heavenly bowers, where they did see
And know each other here belov'd to be."
~ Edmund Spenser


"It is the true season of love, when we know that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved before us and that no one will ever love in the same way after us."
~ Goethe


"Sometimes you don't dare to touch a woman

because you love her so much."
~ Andrey Kocnhalovskiy
