Famous Quotes on Love

Love; a mere four-letter word that holds great significance and marvel, that baffles yet excites, stuns yet comforts. The following quotes will reveal some heartfelt quotes on love, uttered from the lips of the famous who truly know what love is.
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." - 1 Corinthians, 13:4-8a

Paul rightly puts his understanding of love into words, in the above verse as part of the Pauline epistles. It's hard to imagine love existing in a world where many countries face decadence, violence, strife, and other just as disturbing situations, that feed off hateful emotions. For those of us who have experienced love―whether with a partner, loved one, or close friend―will know deep down that it truly does exist if you let it grow within your heart. Here's what Mother Teresa has to say on love,

"Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting."
