Six years ago, I created a homemade book for my wife with all these quotes about Love from our favorite TV Shows and movies and books and then I added to it great quotes about love from history or just great quotes about love from anyone. For the past five years, I’ve shared a few from the book around the holidays.

Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs;
The ones who accept you for who you are.
The ones who would do anything to see you smile
And who love you no matter what.
Natavia, Who Wants That Perfect Love Story Anyway
Romance is thinking about your significant other, when you should be thinking of something else.
Gamble everything for love, if you are a true human being.
I sustain myself with the love of family.
To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow- this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.
Elizabeth Gilbert, Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage
For he would be thinking of love
Till the stars had run away
And the shadows eaten the moon.
W. B. Yeats, Selected Poems and Four Plays
If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy. If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing. If she’s worth it, you won’t give up. If you give up, you’re not worthy.
Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.
Bob Marley, Guitar Chord Songbook – Bob Marley
I’d rather have bad times with you, than good times with someone else.
I’d rather be beside you in a storm, than safe and warm by myself.
I’d rather have hard tomes together, than to have it easy apart.
I’d rather have the one who holds my heart.
I always say that there is no greater act of courage than to be the one who kisses first.
Mad About You
Live, and be happy, and make others so.
Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein
But I love your feet only because they walked upon the earth and upon the wind and upon the waters, until they found me.
Somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight, someone’s thinking of me and loving me tonight.
