I have always been moved by poetry, quotes and song lyrics. Admittedly, I am a hopeless romantic. I am moved by people's stories of how they met, what keeps them together, and the joy they get from the love of their lives. Valentine's Day is the perfect day to reflect on the greatness of love.
Some of the words that you will read below are very powerful. Love is like that...powerful. I know for me, sometimes it seems so hard to express the feelings that I have in mere words. It is not enough just to speak love, but to show love.
The best description of love as God intended it to be comes from the Bible in
1 Corinthians 13. These verses tell us that it doesn't matter if we have everything in the world, if we don't have love, these things are nothing. Love is the one constant that will never fail and is the greatest of all things.
10 AWESOME LOVE QUOTES
Where we love is home. Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
I think this quote is beautiful. It reminds me that no matter where life may take us, home is where we love…who we love and why we love. It tells us that what the heart feels is what’s most important. Home is not a place... home is in the heart.
Jesus reminds us that our home is where are treasures are in Matthew 6:20-21 “but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
Another beautiful quote that I have loved for years. It reminds me that material things are not what life is all about. It is everything that we FEEL… love, compassion, hope, faith, empathy, joy. These things cannot be bought and they are the most beautiful of all things.
There is always some madness in love. But there is always some reason in madness.
Underneath all of the craziness that love brings to our lives is some solid reasoning. Love makes us do all kinds of crazy things and this is what makes it so exciting, right!?!
There is only one happiness in this lifetime, to love and be loved.
Having someone love us brings happiness and joy; but loving others brings us even more rewards.
Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
Vincent Van Gogh
Let love be the strength and motivation for everything you do.
I knew you were the one when you walked into my chaos and
This quote is for my husband. He came into my life and not only loved me, but also my boys, and all of my quirks....and I am so blessed that he's still here by my side!
He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
True love feels like this, as God intended it to be: Mark 10:8 "and the two shall become one flesh; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh."
The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us
reach for more, and plants a fire in our hearts and brings
peace to our minds.
How could a quote from The Notebook not make my list?? One of the most beautiful love stories of all time. This line is so true on so many levels.
Love is the only gold.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Love is really all that matters. Nothing else can compare to it.
I can say with great certainty and absolute honesty that I did not know what love was until I knew what love was not.
As this quote suggests, learning what love truly is comes from learning what love is not. Sometimes it takes having a broken heart, losing someone you thought you loved, experiencing a break-up, or being hurt by someone who you thought loved you the same way that you loved them. These experiences only lead you to know how you want to loved and how to really love in return.
