Talks from the heart… Love quotes to live by

birthday flowers

Tuesday used to be ‘quote-day’ on my blog. I picked out a quote and let my thoughts run wild on it. Well, today I give you some quotes… and as it happens to be Valentine’s Day today, all these quotes have one thing in common… love…

Whenever I read a quote I like, I write it down. I have gathered quite a selection of quotes over the years. Quotes can give you strength, courage, inspiration, motivation,… they can be funny, sad and they can really make you look in the mirror twice.

But quotes come and go. If I read my collection of quotes, there are always quotes that get eliminated from my list and then there are quotes that stay on my list forever and ever.

Today, on Valentine’s Day, I give you a couple of beautiful love quotes. I don’t like those soppy lovey dovey ones. No, love goes way beyond that. Love is one of the deepest feelings, it feeds your life and it makes you go on when times are tough…

So here are my favourite love quotes… enjoy!

“Somebody who betters you. Somebody who inspires you and encourages you in love and in life, who pushes you towards dreams and goals you’d otherwise ignore, who selflessly sacrifices their time to helping you become a more courageous, well rounded and happy human being… That’s sacred, you hold on to a love like that.” – Beau Taplin

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” – Audrey Hepburn
