Valentine’s Day has been thoroughly ‘hallmarked’ and makes for extremely cheesy quotes on love, unlike these quotes about love from books.
“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
“You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.”
“We accept the love we think we deserve.”
“The truest form of love is how you behave toward someone, not how you feel about them.”
“When someone loves you, the way they talk about you is different. You feel safe and comfortable.”
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
“Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.”
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
“Don’t cry over someone who wouldn’t cry over you.”
“She is a friend of my mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order.”
“Love is the strangest, most illogical thing in the world.”
“There comes a time in your life when you have to choose to turn the page, write another book or simply close it.”
“Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.”
“We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust.”
“Love makes you want to be a better man—right, right. But maybe love, real love, also gives you permission to just be the man you are.”
“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
“If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: in love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are.”
