As a writer, I’ve poured my heart out time and time again on the concept of love. There’s a universality to this topic that can connect with every single being on this earth. We’re all searching for human connection, for our ‘person,’ for a relationship that makes us feel even more complete than we are on our own. We all want to understand what it means to love someone, and to do so without losing ourselves in the process. We all want to feel deeply, but avoid heartbreak. And if we somehow get crushed, we are desperate to find a way into healing and back to ourselves.
Love is universal in the fact that we all experience it, all crave it, and all will inevitably be broken by it. And yet, we’re all still healing, and searching all over again.
I’ve collected quotes on love that I’ve written throughout the years and compiled them into this piece. (Small reminder that these are copyrighted! So please, if you share one of the images, credit me @_marisadonnelly! 😄) Hopefully this collection can be a reference, an encouragement, and a place for you to revisit and remind yourself of who and what you deserve to find.
19. “Love is not a one-time thought or feeling. It’s a continual action, continual choice, continual promise to another person. Love is a verb.”
