My Fav. Quotes About Love

This is for you.  and you.  and you too :)


"I have realized that it is not love that fails, it is people. Those same people with anger in their hearts have failed to see that it was they who were not strong enough to wield love’s power, not love that wasn’t strong enough to transform them."
Source Unknown

  "True love is not how you forgive, but how you forget, not what you see but what you feel, not how you listen but how you understand, and not how you let go but how you hold on."

It's no trick loving somebody at their best; Love is loving them at their worst."

"Someone once told me that true love is the soul's recognition of its counterpoint in another."
Wedding Crashers

"The silliest fear which drove all that emotion and negative energy was my fear of losing you. I say it’s silly because you don’t have to worry about losing a person that loves you, and sillier yet if you worry about losing a person who doesn’t love you."
source unknown    

"We've got this great gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it is going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it."
John Lennon, 1969

I would rather fight with you than make love to anyone else."
from the movie The Wedding Date

 "I love you not because it is right, but because I love you." unknown    

"It takes three seconds to say I love you. Three hours to explain it and a lifetime to prove it." unknown  

You know you are in love
when you see the world in her eyes,
and her eyes everywhere in the world.
- David Levesque  

When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
- Elizabeth Bowen –  

Love is when you look into someone's eyes
and see their heart.
- Jill Petty  

Love doesn't make the world go round.  Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.  Franklin P. Jones  

True love cannot be found where it truly does not exist,
Nor can it be hidden where it truly does.
~ by Anonymous    

I have learned not to worry about love;
But to honor its coming with all my heart.
~ by Alice Walker ~    

Love doesn't sit there like a stone.
It has to be made like bread;
Remade all the time,
Made new.
~ by Le Guin ~    

There are no guarantees.
From the viewpoint of fear,
None are strong enough.
From the viewpoint of love,
None are necessary.
~ by Anonymous ~    

Love looks through a telescope; envy through a microscope.

"I would rather fight with you than make love to anyone else......" That is so wonderful... This is an excellent collection of quotes. Thanks for sharing :)

just love it.......

Thanks all1rog. It was good for me to read them again this morning. Hugs. :)

He should be Sooner, for a little while longer anyway! LOL My son is about to be 13 next week. My last little baby. I can hardly believe it! They grow up so fast, hon, not even kidding...

That is so sweet Sooner. Your son is a wonderful little boy... How old is he anyway? The minute my son entered middle school it became taboo for me to hug him in public, so of course I do as much as possible! LOL

Good luck with that one Sooner! One of the things I noticed about my kids is that once their help became real help, they quit being so willing to help. LOL

Yeah, my friend Sunshine sent me one like that the other day, smacked me right upside the head too! LOL

Sooner. Awesome. You are so in my head. Not even kidding girl. Gimmie a hug!

Yes it does. I could totally use to relax a bit. Just saying...

Glitter in the hot tub may create some problems with clogged jets, but I bet it would be fun in the meantime... LOL

Come on over, SB, always glad to share my chocolate with a good friend!<br />
<br />
Dan ~ Yes, and to keep the massage bars from melting before their time too! Watch out for gold teeth today... LOL

MMMM yes I want some :)

And I bet you have the perfect spot for it all picked out. Don't you Dan? ;)

Me too, SB. I just re-read them myself. Thanks...<br />
<br />
And yes, honey, dark chocolate. Want some? I keep a stash ;)

Did someone say chocolate :)...<br />
HBY- I re-read the quotes and I still love them all..

You have a very romantic soul, Dan, and a huge heart to go with it... Hugs.

And a hot tub. Don't forget about the hot tub... ;)

Mmmm Hmmm... Sure does. Really yummy... ;)

Much more edible than gold glitter, Dan, Yummy...

That's the spirit Dan! Gimmie some MORE gold glitter! LMAO!

No, Dan. Actually I expect MORE!!! LOL ;)

Dan ~ What's that sparkly thing I see in your belly button? You didn't by any chance get yourself a Lush bar, huh? LMAO!!

Thanks LNG. I like it a lot too... It is speaking to me loud and clear at the moment :)

Like your last quote in your last comment.

Yes, that one def. does fit you, Longrun. <br />
<br />
Glad to hear you are back at it after your injury...<br />
<br />
My current favorite quote is not in this story, but in a blog I recently posted. It is by Max Ehrmann<br />
<br />
"Whether or not it is clear to you,<br />
no doubt the universe<br />
is unfolding as it should..."

You are so welcome, Beta!

Thanks for sharing these.

I am just basking in all this love coming my way, ya'll :)<br />
<br />
I think you both know how much your friendship means to me...<br />
<br />
I am truly blessed to have people like the two of you in my life. Just saying dot dot dot LOL

It would be nice FG, if we could turn it on and off as needed, huh? lol<br />
<br />
And you are right, Dan, it should be pretty impossible for FG not to be feeling the love...

Sh*t I would find this of all days to find it...I am not wanting to feel love today.

Yes Dan, I def. do. Just like a real bee too... when someone steps on me. Fair Warning ;)<br />
<br />
Sunshine. You are my friend to the core girl, obviously as loyal as they come... Thank you.

Not at all, HBY, it's all good... :)<br />
<br />
And thank *you* for the compliment...<br />
<br />
glad you liked my story about snowbunny, she is what love is all many ways...<br />
<br />

Marcus ~ This collection pales in comparison to your story about Snowbunny...but thank you so much for the compliments, hon.<br />
<br />
Sunshine... I love you too girl! You are totally one of my rocks in life. You're friendship is a true blessing. Just saying... <br />
<br />
Dot Dot Dan ~ Yes, I am totally making fun of you! You have such a great sense of humor. Just one of the many things about you that amazes me more and more every passing day.

Thanks SB... <br />
<br />
I hope you have found yours...<br />
<br />

Wise and powerful quotes, HBY. Thank you for these!<br />
<br />
I love Josh Billings quote about the microscope. <br />
<br />
When one is jealous or petty, it is all about the minutiae, the building up of picky details that ultimately is really not very important compared to the larger scheme of things..<br />
<br />

I loved all of these... but this is a fav..<br />
<br />
"True love is not how you forgive, but how you forget, not what you see but what you feel, not how you listen but how you understand, and not how you let go but how you hold on."<br />
<br />
That truly says alot....thanks for posting these!

Well, then listen to this Dan.<br />
<br />
You totally rock! Just saying... (notice the dot dot dot? lol)

Thanks Humble Cookie...<br />
<br />
I love things that speak to me.. quotes, songs, books...<br />
<br />
Glad that these quotes spoke to you too!<br />
<br />

Very good Silver... <br />
<br />
Although I tend to think that quote is more about self empowerment than love of another... and reminds me of a quote from Janis Joplin...<br />
<br />
"Never compromise yourself, you're the only one you've got"... or something like that :)

here is a good qoute<br />
<br />
"I am better than you by default" - ME :)

Thanks so much HoneyPie... Those were wonderful...<br />
<br />

These are wonderful! Thank you for sharing them :) I love the Lennon quote especially.<br />
<br />
Some quotes about love that I like are this one, from Zora Neale Hurston:<br />
<br />
"Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place."<br />
<br />
And this little piece, from an e. e. cummings poem:<br />
<br />
"your slightest look easily will unclose me<br />
though i have closed myself as fingers,<br />
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens<br />
(touching skilfully, mysteriously) her first rose"<br />
<br />
I always have to smile when I read these.

Sometimes, they really do don't they :)

You are so sweet Dan. Here is another for you...<br />
<br />
"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." - Albert Einstein <br />
<br />
Enjoy your miracles :)

Thanks Dan! <br />
<br />
It was for you, too... I know you have been through a lot, and it's wonderful that you are not as jaded as many would be. You totally rock. <br />
<br />
Just saying... :)

Well FG, you totally know you are one of the you's I put them up for... ILY, you are an awesome friend! <br />
