Love — Some Thoughts and Quotes


One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life that word is Love.  


Love gives meaning to life and only those who love, squeeze the juice out of life. 


“Love doesn’t make the world go ‘round.
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” Franklin P


Love holds the power to turn hatred into togetherness, it turns sadness into happiness


Love builds bridges between people’s hearts, and only when there is love can a true heart-to-heart communication take place. 


Lovers don’t talk about love they communicate it through their eyes. 


“When I saw you, I fell in love and you smiled because you knew.” William Shakespeare 


Love is more easily demonstrated than defined.


“It is a risk to love.
What if doesn’t work out?
Ah, but what if it does?!” Peter McWilliams 


“Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.” Bertrand Russell


“Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It’s sanity.” Katrina Mayer 


True love is a gift  we can’t demand or force it


When you love, don’t ask for love in return if you do so, you are not a truly loving person. Love is not a commercial transaction. 


To offer love, we need to be abundant in love. How can one who is destitute offer financial wealth? 

If we possess everything but don’t feel love, we will not be happy. If we possess nothing but our heart is overflowing with love, we will be as happy as anyone can get. 

The moment we come to love a thing or a being, it no longer carries harm for us. That is power of love.

Love is absence of fear. But we fear love. Because the sense of “otherness” gets dissolved, since it was imaginary from the very beginning.


A loving person loves unconditionally. Like the sun, he or she pours the rays of love to everyone, regardless of their superficial differences

Ponder Over These…
