Here are some lovely quotes about love. It’s worth noting that these quotes don’t focus so much on romantic love as the kind of love that people share with one another that creates a move loving and caring world. Some might refer to this as spiritual or communal love.
“Love is at the root of everything. All learning. All parenting. All relationships. Love or the lack of it.” -Fred Rogers
“Causing suffering for others creates suffering for ourselves. Loving others is the best way to love ourselves.” -Matthew Vasko, Founder, Century of Compassion
“Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.” -Brene Brown
“Love is a powerful force. Yet, how many people the world over have been harmed by love? Love that was cold, love that hurt, love that left scars. RECK is about helping people learn to love properly. Treat all people – especially the people you love – with respect, empathy, compassion, and kindness, and your love will be love that heals, love that honors, and love that lifts people up and makes them feel whole!” -Matthew Vasko, Founder, Century of Compassion
“Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest.” -Sri Chinmoy
“When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet, if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason or argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.” -Tich Nhat Hanh
“Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.” -L.R. Knost, Author
