The-best-love-quotes

Christmas. The birth of Christ. What does He represent? What does He embody? Unconditional love. So whether we be Christian by faith, come from another religion or none, we can all celebrate the true meaning of Christmas by aspiring to love a little more unconditionally.

This week, a gathering of the best love quotes plus news of a download sale via our webstore as our Christmas gift to you with the suggestion you might like to give these as meaningful presents. Also, you may consider booking into Ruth's next meditation retreat - pre-Easter April 2019, but first cannot go past this one…



      Thought for the day

   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.

                              Marilyn Monroe








During Ruth’s recent meditation retreat where I filled in, she asked me to present on love - the different types of love we experience, how we might aspire to be more loving, and to be more open to receiving love. It was a wonderful, interactive session and one couple said that after 30 years of marriage and having been at a somewhat stagnant point in their relationship, they now felt like newly weds again!

Anyway, as part of the presentation this collection of great love quote gathered over some time was shared…

Enjoy


You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
love like you’ll never be hurt,
sing like there’s nobody listening,
and live like it’s heaven on earth.
William W. Purkey

If you don’t love yourself who will?
Naval Ravikant

Just be you and wait for the people who want that.
Naval Ravikant

We can only learn to love by loving.
Iris Murdoch


You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; and just so, you learn to love by loving. All those who think to learn in any other way deceive themselves.
Saint Francis de Sales

This is the kind of Friend
 You are
-
Without making me realize

My soul's anguished history,

You slip into my house at night,

And while I am sleeping,

You silently carry off

All my suffering and sordid past

In Your beautiful

Hands.
Hafiz


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.
Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is simply the name for the desire and the pursuit of the whole.
Aristophanes

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
Buddha











Love is a gift of one’s inner-most soul to another so both can be whole.
Buddha

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
Francis of Assisi


The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion.
The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.
HH the Dalai Lama

All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness.
The important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.
HH the Dalai Lama


True love is both loving
And letting oneself be loved.
It is harder to let ourselves be loved
Than it is to love.
Pope Francis
