Most of us have fallen for somebody in our lives. Whether it was puppy love, serious love or a total mistake, we know what it means to be a little twitterpated. Love is part of what makes us human and it’s why so many of us end up on dating websites or perusing through ex-lovers on social media or re-watching rom-coms until we know every word by heart.
One of the nicest ways to celebrate or reflect on love is through an excellent love quote. Whether it’s from your favorite sappy movie, a good-old love song or a classic poem, these quotes tend to resonate and help us better understand what it means to love and be loved… and sometimes to lose it.
So yes, we say embrace it. Let the tears flow, copy these quotes down in your journal or text them to a friend who gets it. These are some of the best quotes about love that really, really get it.
