Love's beauty and specialty lies in experiencing it. Only a person in love can understand the feelings of another person enjoying the bliss of love, and sometimes its agonies too. Even though love is not an easy term to define, the fact that it is a spontaneous feeling or emotion results in the birth of love quotes.
There are many phases in love, like infatuation, companionate love, consummate love, empty love, romantic love, etc. Love quotes can be written in any language but their crux is always love.
Who but those who are in love are creators of love quotes? Sometimes, these quotes run into several paragraphs, like a poem. Such is the thumping influence of love that it brings a person's creativity and imagination to the front.
Some quotes are indeed crisp and striking, while others are elaborate.
"love is like a mustard seed;
planted by God
and watered by men."
There is no doubt that love quotes are intense and reflect the person's involvement in love.
"You know you are in love
when you see the world in her eyes,
and her eyes everywhere in the world."
Unfortunately not all love quotes are joyous and optimistic. You cannot expect a person who has suffered love failure to write such quotes. On the contrary, he will be discouraged and pour out all his woes. This is the reason why some love quotes are negative.
"Love is only half the illusion; the lover, but not his love, is deceived" George Santayana
"To be in love is merely to be in a state of perceptual anesthesia -- to mistake an ordinary young man for a Greek god or an ordinary young woman for a goddess" H.L. Mencken
Love quotes are true and original words as they come directly from a person's heart, like this one:
Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other- Felix Adlers
