Favorite Quotes on Love

Happy Valentine's Day!

I love a good quote. Here are a few of my favorite quotes on love. I thought you might enjoy some food for thought to go with all that chocolate and candy you just might eat today!

Almost every emotional problem can be summed up in one particular bit of behavior: it is a person walking around screaming “Love me! Love me!” He goes through a million different manipulations to get somebody to love him. On the other hand, healthy people are those who walk around looking for someone to love. And if you see changes in the people who are screaming “Love me,” it’s when they realize that if they give up this screaming and go to the other business of loving another human, they can get the love they’ve been screaming for all their lives.
- Thomas P. Malone

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
- Kahlil Gibran

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get – only with what you are expecting to give – which should be everything.
