5 Favourite Love Quotes

I know it's Friday and if you're here for another #LittleLimLookbook, I have to apologise. We've been busy this week and I didn't manage to plan any shoots. Also LittleLim has been a very difficult toddler this week thanks to teething, giant developmental leap and just using her new found independence in the form of rebelling. Not the most fun time to be honest and really trying for me as a parent. But we'll get through this and hopefully fully intact with our emotions in place. LoL!

But don't worry, will make your trip down here a bit meaningful. Here are 5 of my favourite quotes about that best describes love for me.



1. There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you — of kindness and consideration and respect — not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had. – John Steinbeck

2. Nothing has happened as we imagined it would except our children. We never thought we’d roam the world. We never thought our occupations and interests would cover such a range. We never thought that our thirty-third anniversary would find us deep in our second war and me again at the front. Well, darling, we’ve lived up to the most important part of the ceremony, “In sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, till death do you part.” – Theodore Roosevelt Jr.

3. "When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are to become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No ... don't blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away. Doesn't sound very exciting, does it? But it is!" - Captain Corelli's Mandolin

4. Your word travels the entirety of space and reaches my cells which are my stars then goes to yours which are my light. – Frida Kahlo

5. Soul meets soul, on lovers' lips. - Prometheus Unbound

The last one is my favourite. So simple and yet so deep. There's nothing more passionate than two souls meeting each other. What are your favourite quotes about love that brings meaning for you?
