A set of emotions and behaviors that are characterized by love include intimacy, passion, and commitment. It includes closeness, protection, intimacy, affection, trust, and protectiveness. The intensity of love can vary, and it can change over time. Although it is associated with positive emotions like happiness, excitement, life satisfaction, and euphoria and can cause euphoria and joy, it can also lead to negative emotions like jealousy and stress.
Some people believe love is the most important emotion of all. It is one of the most well-studied behaviors, but it remains a mystery. Researchers debate whether love is biological or cultural.
Both cultural and biological influences can influence love. Although biology and hormones are important, our perceptions of love can also influence how we experience and express love.
These are some of the best “what’s love quotes” from Penn Book. All you need to do now is find the perfect gift for your loved one.
What Is Love Quotes
“Love, real love, the kind that you fall in, isn’t like Corinthians. The “suffereth long” and “is kind” nonsense. It’s like the Song of Solomon. It’s jealousy and fire and floods. It’s everything that consumes.”
― Julie Anne Long, A Notorious Countess Confesses
“Love? I always thought love was just something that ate away your sanity, left you with an inferiority complex, and filled you with jealousy…and bitterness.
Noi-chan told me all about love… and now I know the truth.
Love is an illusion. Nothing more than that.
Anyway, it has nothing to do with me. <3
So many people get hung up on love while life passes them by.”
― Tomoko Hayakawa, The Wallflower, Vol. 19
“I have learned, that in this life, you must always be your own advocate. We yearn for someone to always be on our side, to always trust us, to always believe us and believe in us, regardless of the world and everything in it! But the reality of life proves that the majority of people are only capable of shallow love. They will only advocate you as much as you advocate yourself. They are admirers who have fallen into adoration of your own publication of yourself and once that image begins to shake and quiver? Their “love” shakes and quivers, too. Very seldom will you find someone who will love the way that you tremble? And yet, this is the only type of love that is ever even true! If you are not loved for the way that you tremble and the way that you come unhinged, then you are not even loved at all.”
― C. JoyBell C.
“I think there’s something to the old saying that women use sex to get love, and men use love to get sex. And love is really just a word we use to describe a close bond, or relationship, between two people. Men have been programmed to want sex, so they do whatever is necessary to be in a relationship with a woman. And a woman is programmed to want the stability and (financial) security of a relationship, so she offers the man what he wants: sex.”
― Oliver Markus, Why Men And Women Can’t Be Friends
“Love is a more powerful force than magic. You can trick the mind and even the heart, but never the soul. When a person is not free to love with their soul, that is not loving and that is why a love spell can never truly work.”
― Nikki Jefford, Entangled
“What is this love
that makes me see beauty,
and makes every beautiful thing
bring you back to me?
What is this love
that makes me declare ‘I love you’
even though I uttered it
only a moment ago?
What is this love
that keeps growing even when my chest is sore
and it hurts to love you anymore?
How am I to find what this love is
when it was the one to find you, me,
this verse, and this universe?”
― Kamand Kojouri
“Romantic love, I think, requires a degree of physical attraction, but devotion is needed to maintain it as an actual relationship. Physical attraction is a feeling you don’t really have control over, but devotion is something that has to be chosen. So, ideally… I suppose it’s passion combined with the commitment to value someone else completely above oneself.”
― Angela N. Blount, Once Upon a Road Trip
“Falling in love is more than infatuation. It is the need to feel whole, to feel safe, to be healed, to join together with someone, heart, and soul.”
― Michael R French, Why Men Fall Out of Love: What Every Woman Needs to Understand
“Love? Love is when you are ready to do every possible and positive thing for someone,”
“Hey, I am sorry that I am not like other people… I don’t say things like, “let’s let go of each other now and if we are meant to be, we will be in the end” and things like “if God leads us to it, he will lead us through it.” If that’s the kind of person you’re looking for… well that’s not me. I don’t love that way. If I loved someone living in the pits of hell, I would go into those pits of hell and I would embrace that person right there in hell. That is how I love. And I would try to bring him out of hell, but first I would burn with him in it. So that is why saying something nice to me like, “let’s love one day when it’s proper to love” just isn’t going to cut it. It doesn’t reach me in my soul, because the way my soul loves is different. I don’t love as people love. If one day you are burning in hell, I wouldn’t say, “look at that bad man in hell!” but I would say “how do I get in there?” So you see… I am very different.”
― C. JoyBell C.
“I don’t know what love is.
But if you’re sad and it makes me sadder, I know you and I are somewhere close to it.”
― Nitya Prakash
“When you add love to sex, it feels as if your soul is being drawn from the chains of gravity into the core of the infinite. New feelings come to life, emotions without explanations that we try to name with that perplexing little word we avoid using as if the word is sacred or sacrilegious.”
― Chloe Thurlow, Katie in Love
“You will be told that the best way to love is in the absence of yourself. But listen to me when I say, that the more treasures within you that you see and you find, the more purely you will be able to love another. We do not love properly when we have no treasures to give; but seeing the cave full of treasures within us, we love as the gods do.”
― C. JoyBell C.
“What is love?
It’s not empathy, nor kindness.
Empathy takes two, the one who hurts and the one who empathizes.
Kindness takes two, the one who gives and the one who takes.
But love takes just one.
The two get together into one.
They don’t separate.
The “I” and the “you” disappear.
I LOVE MEANS I DISAPPEAR..”
― Nikos Kazantzakis
“At the beginning, love is a fact, at the end, it’s a theory”
― Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom
“Love is the power of a wise man. It is a net for a lover. It is a tool for a clever man. Love is a song for a singer.”
― Debasish Mridha
“What is love? Love is when your heart has a raging boner.”
― Oliver Markus Malloy, Inside The Mind of an Introvert
“Love is insanity, apparently.”
― Corey Ann Haydu, The Careful Undressing of Love
“I don’t have any fancy story,
about the way we fell in love.
It was that one awkward move,
and the next I remember,
I was looking at you.
I don’t have any fancy allegory,
about how we decided to marry,
It was over the deck of that cruise,
that you made an awkward move,
And the next I remember,
I conceived in your eye,
some purer truth,
and I was looking at you.
I don’t have any fancy history,
about how I know you so deeply,
It always was that one awkward move,
which I have trusted to pursue.
Who said lovers are complex?
All you need is their,
one awkward move.
Their soul in an instant,
In that one tick of drool.
That’s all that love is,
that one awkward move,
which is only meant only for you.”
― Jasleen Kaur Gumber
“Aimer, ça ne veut pas dire se ressembler. Aimer, ça ne veut pas dire être pareils, se conduire comme des jumeux, croire qu’on est inséparables. Aimer, c’est ne pas avoir peur de se quitter ou de cesser de s’aimer. Aimer c’est accepter de tomber, tout seul, et de se relever, tout seul.”
― Justine Lévy, Nothing Serious
“I’ll tell you what love is. ’Tis
standing arm in arm against the world and knowing together you could rule the country. ’Tis fighting with each other with tooth and nail and never fearing sly or brutal reprisals. ’Tis going to war against the whole world, yet knowing that peace resides in the bed between us.”
― Christina Dodd, Candle in the Window
“Love. What is it truly? Love is a spiritual state, an intangible, often insatiable need to put one’s needs above your own. To provide peace, stability, and smiles to those who have made the long transition from your mind to your heart.”
― Bella Vespira
“Love is not an obsession or a delusion. Love exists in longing and appreciation.”
― Debasish Mridha
“The whole point of love is that it happens now. Here. Between daybreak and nightfall.”
― Jordan Weisman, Cathy’s Key
“Elle me sourit avec tendresse, presque avec amour je dirais, mais je ne sais pas à quoi ça ressemble un regard plein d’amour, alors je ne fais que supposer”
― Livia Cruz, The guy next door
“And while I agree – and who wouldn’t? – that being in Love is the optimum, I have learned that what we call love, or at least what I called love, was often only a ferocious physical attraction.”
― Sari Gilbert, My Home Sweet Rome: Living (and Loving) in the Eternal City
“Women think they can act like evil monsters from hell and be loved like a princess. It’s as if the dragon and the witch were in them and not in the world.”
― Robin Sacredfire
“You don’t how those holy-moly webpages pop-up at the first SERPs and why your pages cry in the corner
You have no know-how of detailed keyword research and how to target long-tail keywords that can rank according to your niche
You don’t understand a shred of how this Google thing works and what does it Penguin, Alligator, Frog updates mean, and how Google crawls down the codes to index the content at those shiny first SERPs
You know the basic Search Engine Optimization but don’t get what the hell are these backlinks and how to get them (What is web 2.0 by the way?)
You don’t grasp the idea of Topic Cluster and how to build a fantastically linked internal colony on your website or blog that not only helps you rank your specific keywords but the whole related content on your web
You don’t know how to create delicious content that can feed both Google and readers
Heading, Alt-images, meta-descriptions, taglines and keyword management, sitemap monitoring and whole techy stuff scares you
You know the SEO but want to consults with some best SEO service providers for better results”
― Sajid Ali
“Love is inconvenient. Love is untidy. Love is relentless, ruthless, and rapacious. Done well, it’s hilarious, playful, and redemptive.”
― Regina Barreca
