I find quotes quite awesome, and some of the best quotes out there are love quotes. Thus, I have culled together numerous love quotes from a couple of sources. In particular, I am a fan of quotes by people that I admire, other poets/writers/thinkers, and spiritual resources.
To get it kick started, here is a spiritual quote from a recent Air1 verse of the day that I appreciate:
“Love each other with geniune affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” (Romans 12:10 NLT; www.air1.com)
Here is one of the quintessential, classic verses on love that is one of my favorites to read when I want to read about love. I find it a high standard to attain to, and I often fall short. These verses are from the Amplified Bible, which I find cool because it amplifies words and adds new facets of understanding and shades of meaning.
“Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant or inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]….Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails…..” (I Corinthians 13:4-8, Amplified Bible)
These inspiring love quotes are gleaned from http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/topics/topic_love.html
“Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever.” ~Leo Buscaglia
“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.” ~Mother Teresa
