Rather than choosing sentimental quotes on love and romance we have carefully selected a handful of wise words of wisdom on the subject of love and romance that may uplift your thoughts to a more nobler standard of dedication to your partner be it present or future.
When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life.
– Greg Anderson
It is probably not love that makes the world go around, but rather those mutually supportive alliances through which partners recognize their dependence on each other for the achievement of shared and private goals.
– Fred Allen
In a true partnership, the kind worth striving for, the kind worth insisting on, and even, frankly, worth divorcing over, both people try to give as much or even a little more than they get. “Deserves” is not the point. And “owes” is certainly not the point. The point is to make the other person as happy as we can, because their happiness adds to ours. The point is — in the right hands, everything that you give, you get.
– Amy Bloom
The giving of love is an education in itself.
– Eleanor Roosevelt
If a person loves only one other person and is indifferent to the rest of his fellow men, his love is not love but a symbiotic attachment, or an enlarged egotism.
Love isn’t a state of perfect caring. It is an active noun, like struggle. To love someone is to strive to accept that person exactly the way he or she is, right here and now.
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.
-William Arthur Ward
