Ten Love Quotes

Today being Valentine’s Day in the US, I compiled ten thoughtful quotes about love . . .

LOVE QUOTE # 1

“When I have learnt to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now.”  – C.S. Lewis

LOVE QUOTE # 2

“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved – loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”  – Victor Hugo

LOVE QUOTE # 3

“Love does not dominate; it cultivates.”  – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

LOVE QUOTE # 4

“Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.”  – Erich Fromm

LOVE QUOTE # 5

“To love is to be vulnerable.”  – C.S. Lewis

LOVE QUOTE # 6

“The history of the world suggests that without love of God there is little likelihood of a love for man that does not become corrupt.”  – Francois Fenelon

LOVE QUOTE # 7

“Love is the sum of all virtue, and love disposes us to do good.”   –  Jonathan Edwards

LOVE QUOTE # 8

“Love of God is the root, love of our neighbor the fruit of the Tree of Life.  Neither can exist without the other, but the one is cause and the other effect.”  – William Temple

LOVE QUOTE # 9

“You will find all that is lacking in your heart in the heart of Jesus, dying on the cross.  Then you will be enabled to love those whom you would naturally, in your pride, hate and crush.”   – Francois Fenelon

LOVE QUOTE # 10

“God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him.  This is real love – not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.”  –  I John 4:9-10, The Bible
