Ah! Love! There’s all sorts of places to get quotes about love. Here’s our favorites:
Bible verses are a great source for quotes on just about any topic!
Lisa Jordan: And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV
Hallee Bridgeman: We love because He first loved us.1 John 4:19
Literature and movies of all kinds offers insight as well.
Katherine Reay & Pepper Basham: You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone forever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago… Captain Wentworth in Persuasion, by Jane Austen.
Krista Phillips & JoAnn Durgin: “You know you are in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr. Seuss.
Kristen Ethridge: Piglet: “How do you spell love?”
Winnie-the-Pooh: “You don’t spell it. You feel it.” A. Milne
JoAnn Durgin: Who, being loved, is poor? ~Oscar Wilde
Narelle Atkins: “Don’t forget I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” – Notting Hill
Lorraine Beatty: True love stories never have endings. Richard Bach
Lynette Sowell: To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” ~ C.S. Lewis
Poems and songs have often inspired!
Carla Laureano: My favorite love quote is not a quote but a poem: Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116. If I had to choose a favorite section, it would be this: “Love is not love/ Which alters when it alteration finds,/ Or bends with the remover to remove:/ O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,/ That looks on tempests, and is never shaken.”
Merrilee Whren: “If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.” -Alfred Tennyson
Kimberly Rose Johnson: ‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Alfred Lord Tennyson
Valerie Comer: Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction. Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Laurie Tomlinson: “Love, it will not betray you / Dismay or enslave you / It will set you free” – Mumford & Sons
But some of us found our favorite quotes other places!
Staci Stalling: When you live a life of love, time becomes meaningless, limits are removed, and you just want to open your heart a little wider. –Staci Stallings
Deb Kastner: Love Courageously!
Annalisa Daughety: “Sometimes in the middle of an ordinary life, God gives us a fairy tale.” (said during my wedding ceremony)
AND “It’s never too late for happily ever after.”
Carol Moncado: We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other. – Phil Robertson, Duck Commander
