Love is all we need. And some quotes on love too.

love quotes and quotations midst fragrant pink roses

I once came across a lovely quotation that said that the best romantic relationship is not about warm fuzzy feelings, candlelight dinners, compatibility, babies and sweet nothings, but is the one that helps you achieve your highest potential.

Controversial as we may say, it did ring the big bell and I went searching for that quotation once again. I have not found it but ended up discovering so much more.

Here are some of my handpicked quotations on Love that I came across during my search. I wanted to share these, hoping that they too resonate with you. Or even better, igniting you to go and search for that perfect quote that moves you.
