Love, Love and More Love

Love is all around us, each and every day. Even if we don’t have a sweetheart or pet to call our own, love is there. We’ve all been loved at one time or other in our lives, and even if we feel we haven’t–we are loved, just the same.

I went looking for quotes about love, and found thousands. Here are some that really resonate:

“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
― Dr. Seuss

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
― Lao Tzu

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

“I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?”
― Mother Teresa

“How many slams in an old screen door? Depends how loud you shut it. How many slices in a bread? Depends how thin you cut it. How much good inside a day? Depends how good you live ’em. How much love inside a friend? Depends how much you give ’em.”
― Shel Silverstein

“What Is Love? I have met in the streets a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, the water passed through his shoes and the stars through his soul.”
― Victor Hugo

“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.”
― Maya Angelou

And from me, there is this:

“I believe in love the way I believe in sunshine and snow and stars

I know love by the way it hugs my heart and erases its scars–

This moonscape of love is engraved upon my soul

And glows and flickers like a random coal

That warms me, yet never burns

That lights my way with all its turns–

And keeps my feet walking straight and true

To my true love, and Love–that’s you.”

Happy Valentines’ Day, everyone!
