As Valentine’s Day is approaching, here are a few of my favorite quotes about Love.

“You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free” Thich Nhat Hanh

“Love is the bridge that leads from the I sense to the We, and there is a paradox about personal love. Love of another individual opens a new relation between the personality and the world. The lover responds in a new way to nature and may even write poetry. Love is affirmation; it motivates the yes responses and the sense of wider communication. Love casts out fear, and in the security of this togetherness we find contentment, courage. We no longer fear the age-old haunting questions: “Who am I?” “Why am I?” “Where am I going?” – and having cast out fear, we can be honest and charitable.” Carson McCullers

“Love is the bridge between you and everything” Rumi

“Thus you may understand that love alone
is the true seed of every merit in you,
and of all acts for which you must atone.” Dante Alighieri
“I have to remind myself to breathe — almost to remind my heart to beat!” Emily Brontë

“Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 

“Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.” Albert Einstein

“Love is that condition in the human spirit so profound that it empowers us to develop courage; to trust that courage and build bridges with it; to trust those bridges and cross over them so we can attempt to reach each other.” Maya Angelou

“If nothing saves us from death, at least love should save us from life” Pablo Neruda

“You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.”Oscar Wilde

“If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love”. Maya Angelou

Smiling back at you ❤
