The Power of Love

Posted February 02, 2013 by Alexandra D. Williams

Love is one of the most powerful emotions known to man.  Acts of bravery, selflessness, stupidity, desperation, and many other things all stem from love.  We as humans crave love and everything associated with it.  With all of the different types of love to be received, its importance is evident.  The love we share with our family, our friends, our spouse or significant other--it’s all vital.  Below we’ll read some of the most touching love quotes available.

“True love stories never have endings.” - Richard Bach

As seen in tragedies, both in literature and in life, love is often cut short. We hear all the time that people have lost their “one true love,” but if they really were the one true love, Bach assumes that they’d still be around.  With true love comes a blindness towards flaws, and an ability to overlook arguments and faults.

"If we discovered we only had five minutes left to say all we wanted to say, every telephone booth would be occupied by people telling other people that they loved them." - Author Unknown

We’ve all been in the place where we haven’t had the courage to tell that one person how we feel. Either we’re too shy, too hard on ourselves, or the other person is already involved with someone else. When situations like this strike, it’s easy to say “Oh, I’ll wait,” or “I’ll tell them when I’m ready.”  The amount of courage that comes with lack of consequences allows us to reveal things.

“When we love there is no reason why.” - Vanna Bonta

How many times have we been asked “what do you love about them?” or “why do you love them?” and been left absolutely stumped.  The asker then sometimes jumps to the conclusion “you mustn’t really love them if you can’t tell me why.” Only those that have been in love know that sometimes words just aren’t enough.

“The spaces between your fingers were created so that another’s could fill them in.” - Author Unknown

Holding hands has been a symbol of affection for quite some time. It’s deemed an act so cherished that even The Beatles had to make a song about it! Hand-holding provides security, trust, openness, guidance, and sometimes just a nice warm hand to hold.  Such a simple act with such a deep meaning should be valued.

“If you are able to say how much you love, you love little.” - Petrarch

Love is considered by many the strongest human emotion. The ability to describe something with such a title should not come easily. Petrarch feels that if we are able to put our emotion into words, it is unworthy of being called the strongest human emotion possible.

“When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.” - William Shakespeare

Being loved is something all humans crave. It’s a wonderful feeling that we all innately yearn for.  Coming to the realization that someone loves us, in turn, releases those wonderful feelings throughout our body and soul. Not smiling while feeling such a thing would be absurd.

“Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.” - Zora Hurston

Love can sometimes act as an enabling feeling. When we are loved by others, it allows us to see our own worth. Love is rejuvenating, exciting, and just an all-around perfect gateway emotion. Hurston tries to reinforce this truth in a more poetic way.

“The greatest science in the world, in heaven, and on earth, is love.” - Mother Teresa

Love is a phenomenon that almost everyone recognizes. It’s impossible to understand through science, religion, or any overall common knowledge. It’s impossible to understand because it is something that transcends the mundane.

“Love is the bridge between two hearts.” - Author Unknown

There is no better way for two people to join together than to be in love. It’s impossible to connect two people closely without love of some kind.

“Without love, we are birds with broken wings.” - Morrie Schwartz

Every so often it happens that a tragedy comes up through news, literature, or television. It’s portrayed that love is such a large addition to certain personality traits. In other instances, it happens that with love everything else slowly falls into place. It is almost believed that a person is in their prime when they’re in love.

Love is a force more powerful than can be explained. Its qualities make it a unique human trait, which in no way lessens its mystery. Though powerful, love is also impossible to control or truly understand, and in that, it can make us rise and fall.
