It’s February and love is still in the air. This is the last installment of a four part series and stunning love quotes:
The bottom line inn love is not whether someone loves you, but whether someone chooses you. ~Marianne Williamson
Call me greedy —- I want BOTH! Not only should we be loved beyond reason, but we must be chosen too. I deserve it, and so do you!
I’ve earned him. He’s such a good person. ~Jeanne Tripplehorn, on her husband
DO. NOT. Do not believe any of that rubbish about unconditional love. Love by its very nature is discriminatory and conditional. If not, what’s the point?!
Honestly, do you want to be loved in general terms; or do you want to be loved specifically and precisely for your unique details? The things that are true of you and no one else.
Real love, romantic or platonic, is earned — and it is this very fact that shelters us in this life. The value of love is in the earning.
He is like a tree. He shelters me. I lie in his shade. ~The New World, a movie
When the violent, raging wild fires of reality and disappointment sweep in and threaten to annihilate to a black, burnt up crisp every hope and dream we’ve ever had, love shelters.
Question: What is the one thing a person can do to destroy a relationship without fail. Answer: Nothing. ~ Unknown Wise Person
The act of loving isn’t hard labor — it should be approached as one would joyous work. Approach actively loving someone with the right attitude: To express love is to give joy and to feel joy.
Well, it has been great fun thinking and writing about love. It has been fun making these lovely quoted images. I hope you’ve enjoyed them (and my posts) and I hope they have made you really look at and expand your definition of love.
Call to action: Shelter someone, won’t you?!
I’m pretty proud of this post, so check it out: Who’s your sweetie?!
