I believe in beauty and love for friendship and nature. I am just a bit more skeptical about lasting romantic love, or for me anyway :).

I am a bit jaded and do not exactly believe in love at first sight, but I do believe people can cultivate love and devotion for each other over time. Nice quotes on the true meaning of love.
