People can only love you to the capacity that they are able to love themselves. They can only forgive and embrace you to the capacity that they are able to forgive and embrace themselves. They can only give you what they have the capacity to give. You may think that you deserve more, and you may be correct. But that means nothing if a person simply doesn’t have the ability to give it to you.” Lisa Nichols“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 13:4-8. Holy Bible: New International Version“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” Lucille Ball“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.” Paulo Coelho“Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” Veronica A. Shoffstall“You have to learn to get up from the table when love is no longer being served.” Nina Simone“Never love anyone who treats you like you’re ordinary.” Oscar Wilde“The first duty of love is to listen.” Paul Tillich“Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person, they are almost indistinguishable.” David W. Augsburger“The giving of love is an education in itself.” Eleanor Roosevelt“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” John Lennon“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.” Jane Austen“This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something.” Elizabeth Gilbert“You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Buddha“Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.” Louise Hay“To tell the truth is to become beautiful, to begin to love yourself, value yourself. And that’s political, in its most profound way.” June Jordan“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.” Robert Fulghum“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.” Martin Luther King“When you do not require a person to show up as you imagine you need them to be, then you can drop expectation. Then you love them exactly as they are. Yet this can only happen when you love your Self exactly as you are.” N. D. Walsch“If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the universe.” Emmet Fox“The very essence of romance is uncertainty.” Oscar Wilde“Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” Rumi“Don’t make your community and loved ones guess what you need. It’s not fair to them. Instead, proactively tell them—in an uplifting way—how to love you.” Lisa Nichols“Where there is love there is life.” Mahatma Gandhi“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” Martin Luther King, Jr.Plus a new addition bonus beautiful quote about love:“Love is one of the most powerful healing tools in the universe. Most people forget to use it to build rapport, to deepen their relatedness, and to mend the upset that underlies disagreement and expectation. Sprinkle more love and you will heal only 100% of the time.” Monika ZandsClick to see large version to save!This bonus beautiful love quote is one of my favourites on self-love:“Behold thyself in glory. Love thyself as I love you. In this way you honour me. It is my duty to love myself deeply, totally, unconditionally. To see myself as something of great worth. To do less is to deny the task for which I was born. What of my faults and inadequacies? I resolve to love them as part of who I am. I am beautiful because of them. They are part of my uniqueness, like markings on a wild animal. They give me flavour. Make me real. I allow myself and others to make mistakes, miss opportunities and make foolish decisions. I recognise and accept my vulnerability and fragility. My quirks and idiosyncrasies—all part of who I am. I am beautiful and special because of my humanness – in fact, this is where my true beauty lies. As the day accepts the sun and the night accepts the moon, so I accept myself. And so I become complete and whole.” John KehoeYour Fierce Kindness Beautiful Love Quotes PracticeTo go deeper with these quotes about love, here are 3 next steps:As you may already know, one of the core principles of Fierce Kindness is creating a deep connection with yourself.

Warmly, Emma-Louise Reply Julie Donahue February 8, 2022 Great list of quotes about love, except #16 lists the author as “Anonymous”. Actually, the beginning of the book of 1 Corinthians identifies the author as the Apostle Paul. (“Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes, To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in.” 1 Corinthians 1:1) Reply Emma-Louise Elsey February 8, 2022 Thanks Julie for your further identification. I have updated that quote to include the more detailed biblical reference. It really is a beautiful love quote 🙂 Warmly, Emma-Louise Reply Emma September 15, 2022 Dear Emma, Thanks so much for the love quotes. They really inspire me. I had a question. Are you a Christian or do you believe in Christianity? Thanks, Reply Emma-Louise Elsey September 15, 2022 Hi (fellow) Emma,I’m so glad you like these beautiful love quotes!
