53 Love Quotes to Heal & Inspire You on Valentine’s

Happy Valentine’s Day and Month darlings!! How much are you focusing on love today? Me, oh little ol’ me is all in a crazy valentine chocolate heart loving high 🙂 ❤ Don’t judge me! I love love ❤ 😉

For those who know me, know that I’m a quotes junkie. A very very avid one at that too. But although I love quotes, cause they are SO full of wisdom and life lessons, my favorite kind of quotes are Love Quotes.


Other than the fact that I’m such a mushy mushy girl at heart, the other reason is that LOVE in itself encompasses all emotions and all facets of our existence in itself. Love is all that matters, be it romantic love, self love, world love or Divine love. Love is all there is in every cell of me and you.

So this week, being Valentines Week and all, I would like to share thoughts/quotes about love by famous personalities who I have admired and keep admiring. Their words are timeless, inspiring and touch the heart and soul in ways I can’t put into words. You need to *feel* each quote within.

These are 53 of the most Healing and Inspiring Love Quotes. Enjoy!
