The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved
in return. ~ Eden Ahbez
Love is a word which refers to a variety of different emotional
states, feelings or attitudes which range from those of simple
personal pleasures or desires to those characterizing
interpersonal affection and many forms of profound kindness,
compassion, and benevolent concern for the good of others.

Quotes About Love
“ I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make
mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle.
But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as
hell don’t deserve me at my best.

“ Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find
someone who can completely turn your world around. You
tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul
and they absorb everything you say and actually want to
hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will
never come true, goals that were never achieved and the
many disappointments life has thrown at you. When
something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them
about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They
are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting
or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never
do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are
not good enough, but rather they build you up and show
you the things about yourself that make you special and
even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or
competition but only a quiet calmness when they are
around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they
will think of you because they love you for who you are.
The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a
note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in
your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood
come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young
again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter
seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or
didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps
to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a
smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for
continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content
in just having them nearby. Things that never interested
you before become fascinating because you know they are
important to this person who is so special to you. You think
of this person on every occasion and in everything you do.
Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky,
gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open
your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken
one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love
and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that
being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel
true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength
in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate
who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely
different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and
security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.
“ As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep:
slowly, and then all at once.
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
“ It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that

“ The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The
opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the
opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.

“ I love you without knowing how, or when, or from
where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love
you in this way because I do not know any other way of
loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate
that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that
when I fall asleep your eyes close.
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

“ Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It
makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens
up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you
and mess you up.

“ There is never a time or place for true love. It
