Greatest love quotes and sayings

Greatest love quotes and sayings

I am a sucker for love quotes and sayings as I love reading them and sharing them. In our own way, one time or another we have been in love, and have been inspired too. Let me give you some inspiration by these famous quotes, poems and sayings about love. These are my all-time favorites among all the thousands sayings or quotes written about love.

"I love you not because you love me

But because I have experience bliss in your arms

Most of all I love you because of you

I cant question that feeling anymore

I just felt it and I am thankful to thee."

Author: Myself, Alexandria

“Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love,
time is eternity.

Henry Van Dyke

"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength,
While loving someone deeply gives you courage."

Lao Tzu

"The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart."

Helen Keller

All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.”

Leo Tolstoy

“A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge.”

Thomas Carlyle

"I am in love - and, my God, it is the greatest thing that can happen to a man. I tell you, find a woman you can fall in love with. Do it. Let yourself fall in love. If you have not done so already, you are wasting your life."

D. H. Lawrence

"If I know what love is, it is because of you."

Herman Hesse

"All that you are, all that I owe to you, justifies my love."

Marquis de Lafayette

"And in the end, the love you take
Is equal to the love you make."

John Lennon and Paul McCartney

"I'll love you, dear, I'll love you
Till China and Africa meet,
And the river jumps over the mountain
And the salmon sing in the street.

I'll love you till the ocean
Is folded and hung up to dry
And the seven stars go squawking
Like geese about the sky."


W. H. Auden

"But, O Sarah! if the dead can come back to this earth and flit unseen around those they loved, I shall always be near you; In the gladdest days and in the darkest nights . . . always, always, and if there be a soft breeze upon your cheek, it shall be my breath, as the cool air fans your throbbing temple, it shall be my spirit passing by. Sarah do not mourn me dead; think I am gone and wait for thee, for we shall meet again. "

Major Sullivan Ballou, to his wife, before his death in 1861

"The only way of knowing a person is to love them without hope."

Walter Benjamin

"Love is very patient,
Love is very kind,
Love is never envious
Or vaunted up with pride"

Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

"Love does not consist in gazing at each-other but in looking together in the same direction."

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired."

Robert Frost

"I believe that if I should die,
and you were to walk near my grave,
from the very depths of the earth
I would hear your footsteps."


Benito Perez Galdos

"It is the special quality of love not to be able to remain stationary, to be obliged to increase under pain of diminishing."
Andre Gide

"Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it."


Martin Luther King, Jr.

"There is nothing holier, in this life of ours, than the first consciousness of love --the first fluttering of its silken wings."


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense."

Mark A. Overby

Y"et each man kills the thing he loves,
By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look
Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword!"


Oscar Wilde

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death."

by: Elizabeth Barrett Browning

      Great quotes. A few years back I gave my boyfriend a scrapbook and next to each picture put a love quote. This is a great place to find many quotes.
