What is love? Is it lust? Affection? Wealth? It’s an age-old question with many answers. Hence, to get some inspiration in the wild pursuit of this emotion here are the top ten quotes from some exception lovers.
1. EURIPIDES QUOTES
“Friends show their love in times of trouble, not in happiness.” Hence, that friend that only shows up for pool parties? Yeah, ditch them.
2. MOTHER TERESA QUOTES
“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier“. Mother Teresa knows a thing or two about this. Furthermore, what’s the worst that can happen? Just be nice to someone random and see how it goes.
3. H. JACKSON BROWN, JR. QUOTES
“Love is when the other person’s happiness is more important than your own.” Otherwise, you’re just being selfish. Furthermore, you’ll find that your happiness is often aligned with that of others.
4. FRIEDRICH NIETZCHE QUOTES
“There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.” If you can’t tell by this quote, Nietzche is a renowned philosopher. In addition to supporting the feeling of emotion, he supports the logic behind the insanity. Not all crazy people are sane but not all are fools either.
5. DAVID FROST QUOTES
“Don’t aim for success if you want it, just do what you love and believe in and it will come naturally.” An oldie, but a goodie. This advice still rings true today.
6. GEORGE SAND
“There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved“. While this is probably a matter of opinion, it’s a good quote nonetheless.
7. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR
“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend“. Well said, MLK. Well said indeed. However, it’s sad that no one really acts upon this idea.
8. MOTHER TERESA (AGAIN)
“Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” While some cultures don’t believe in the smile, perhaps these words from Mother Teresa wouldn’t hurt.
9. FRANCOIS DE LA ROCHEFOUCAULD
“True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have ever seen.” In addition to this being a humorous quote, it’s actually quite true. Furthermore, it gets your thinking about ghosts. What’s the deal?
10. OSCAR WILDE
“Keep Love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.” Check out the imagery on that quote. It’s almost as if Oscar Wilde was a legendary writer or something. Oh, that’s right, he was. Still, that’s dark quote to end on.
