Love Quotes

Originally posted on Thursday, June 7th, 2007.

When life becomes hard and void of bright promises, we need inspiring quotations from brilliant minds to enlighten and push us to move forward. Here are some words that can brighten the world around us and send us motivated, more determined and feeling victorious again.

Life is an echo, it gives you back everything you say or do. Life is a reflection of your actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. – unknown

Sometimes we must be hurt in order to grow, fail in order to know, lose in order to gain, and sometimes we have to be broken so we can be whole again. – unknown

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

And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.’ – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

On Happiness

Happiness is the capacity to feel deeply, enjoy fully, think freely, love truly and be needed. – Unknown

The very first time I’ve heard this quote is from my high school Math teacher. Actually, I’ve not heard or read these lines ever repeated by anyone else. She’s not a very well-liked teacher by the students. But then, I don’t think there is ever a Math teacher who is liked at all. But she’s actually nice and I’ll always remember her for this quote on happiness.

I’ve repeated these lines a few times to myself most especially, when I’m feeling insecure and depressed. I tell myself that – my capacity to feel deeply depressed is reason enough to be happy. Make sense to me. I hope it makes sense to you.

Live and Let Live

If I have to choose just one quote to live by, that will be:

Live and let live. – Unknown

I wish I know who to quote on this one but I just don’t know who was the first to come up with this very inspiring line – “Live and let live!” It talks about freedom and tolerance.

There are so many standards to follow – religions, tradition and lifestyle, to pattern how we can live our lives. Which one to follow should be our own choice, and not just because we are complying.

There are so many hindrances to living – those that makes life difficult, like problems, depression, heartache, frustration, among others. To get them by is to just live, to just continue living each day and realize that whatever prevents us from enjoying life will soon pass. If it doesn’t, by then, we have already learned to live with it.

And if we are the freedom to live our own lives, then we should let others have their own lives as well and let them be no matter how diversed they are. Tolerance! I think the greatest sin is to kill and to steal , which is the opposite of to let live . And I’m not just talking about killing and stealing as the taking of lives or the taking of material things, but also the killing of the ones spirit or the stealing of ones dreams with the malicious intent or the consequence of preventing others to live the lives they want.

This is my first participation to Sunday Citar. I had been following Fresh Mommy for along time now for it’s Sunday Citar, 30 Days Series, and the wonderful photographs of her and her family.

On Love and Life

The meaning of love is beyond words, beyond songs and beyond lust.
Much more can be known in the silence between thoughts.

Through love, all that is bitter will be sweet.

There is no mistake so painful that love cannot forgive.
There is no past so bitter that ove cannot accept and…
no hope left so little that we cannot start all over with.

The only thing greater than the power of the mind
is the courage of the heart.

Let your love be stronger than your hate and anger.
Learn the wisdom of compromise for it is better to bend a little than to break.

A woman of intelligence is admired. A woman of wealth is envied.
A woman of power is feared. But only a woman of substance is loved.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take
but by every moments that take our breath away.

Happiness and Meaning, Part 2

On Happiness …  

  • Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Albert Schweitzer

Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.” – Albert Schweitzer

  • We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same.” – Anne Frank

Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” – Robert Heinlein

  • If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” – Albert Einstein

My personal favorite …

Happiness comes from the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.” – Storm Jameson

On Meaning …

  • The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.” – Carl Gustav

All that is worth remembering of life is the poetry in it.” – William Hazzlitt

  • Everywhere one seeks to produce meaning, to make the world signify, to render it visible. We are not, however, in danger of lacking meaning; quite the contrary, we are gorged with meaning and it is killing us.” – Jean Baudrillard

My favorite…

Next to God, we are indebted to women, first for life itself, and then for making it worth having.” – Christian Nevell Bovee
