We choose to love, we do not choose to cease loving

    The phrase that I'm looking to have translated is "We choose to love, we do not choose to cease loving"
    It will probably end up being a tattoo.

    I'm also looking to have "Eternal Love" translated which will be an engraving

    Hello, I'd say:

    Statuimus amare, desinere amare non statuimus: we decide to love, we do not decide to cease loving. (In my opinion, we decide neither of them... ;) )

    Or - this one may be less literal, but I feel it better, though:

    Sponte amamus, non sponte amare desinimus: we love willingly/by our own will, we don't cease loving willingly.

    Eternal love: amor aeternus.
