Love Quotes
(90+ quotes)

Love quotes are designed to remind you of the importance of love in our lives.  Love is everywhere but most of us are blind to it. We walk around in ‘boxes’ we consider ...

...our personal safety zones, but they arer eally walls we have built up to keep love out. These love quotes have the power to dissolve those walls and open our hearts to giving and receiving all sorts of love. Romance is just one aspect of love. 

Our primary relationship is with ourselves. When we love ourselves unconditionally, our world opens up to love on many levels. After exploring love quotes, take a look at relationship quotes, kindness quotes, service quotes and compassion quotes. They all cover different aspects of true love. 

I think of love as a duty and joy. We are all aspects of divinity with a mission to love ourselves and all others. That is the supreme commandment. To love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Love is harmless. It is kind. And the act of falling in love is often a leap of faith because we make ourselves vulnerable. Know the risk is worth it! Allow these love quotes to motivate and inspire you along the way. If you happen to get bruised, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and try, try again.

If you want to attract something different, work on changing yourself. Develop new patterns. Try new things. Do what you love to do and reach out to others in places love can find you. Resist the urge to ‘isolate’. Get out in the world. Get involved with things you love and love will be drawn to you like a magnet.

I wish you love…beautiful, nurturing, supportive love that moves you along your true spiritual path. I gift you with this inspiration. Now look in the mirror every day and say, “I love you” until you really mean it. Imagine love filling every cell in your body until you pulse with love energy from head to toe. Now go out and play! You WILL have a love-filled day. With love and hugs,

Your personal joy, inspiration and creativity coach,

We believe we are hurt when we don't receive love. But that is not what hurts us. Our pain comes when we do not give love. We were born to love. You might say that we are divinely created love machines. We function most powerfully when we are giving love. The world has led us to believe that our wellbeing is dependent on other people loving us. But this is kind of upside down thinking that has caused so many of our problems. The truth is our well being is dependent on our giving love. It is not about what comes back; it is about what goes out!
Alan Cohen
