In recent months, I’ve stopped watching television, reading news reports, and turned to great literature for an escape from the craziness. I’m tired of the negativity. I want to live in one of the romance worlds where everyone has a happily ever after. I understand it’s fiction, not reality, but I still want it. I’ve decided there is nothing wrong with wanting to spread a little cheer and happiness, so I made an effort in my own life to inspire and lift up others.
Those who know me are aware of my obsession with Pay it Forward, so I won’t discuss that here. Instead, I started researching some amazing love quotes. Here are a few of those I’ve discovered that inspire me daily.
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep the more I give to thee. The more I have, for both are infinite.” ~ William Shakespeare – Romeo and Juliet
“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.” ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson
“There is no remedy to love, but to love more.” ~ Thoreau
“Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tries, and a touch that never hurts.” ~ Charles Dickens
“Love is the voice under all silences, hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than stars.” ~ E.E. Cummings
“We were together. I forgot the rest.” ~ Walt Whitman
I hope some of these quotes inspired you, made you smile, or warmed your heart today.
