Because it is February, the month of love.. I wanted to share some quotes I love about love
1. MAYA ANGELOU
Maya Angelou has a lot to say on every aspect of life, we loved her poems and when she talked about love, nothing could seem more real. Maya is talking here about how love liberates, how love could be such a blessing in our lives.
“I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold—that’s ego. Love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says, ‘I love you. I love you if you’re in China. I love you if you’re across town. I love you if you’re in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to hear your voice in my ear. But that’s not possible now, so I love you. Go.'”
This one is on self love, we often believe that love is only about loving another individual, but the thruth is the relationship that matters the most is the one we have with our selves.
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”
Hemingway met his Paris wife at a party, and instantly fell in love with her. When she returned home, he wrote her this letter which is now a famous quote
“Lord — I thot I was loving you — If I wasnt I never could and never would love any one. Guess I was thinking too much about how I didn’t want you to go — Don’t you believe I love you? … I didn’t want to kiss you goodbye — that was the trouble — I wanted to kiss you good night — and there’s a lot of difference.”
4. FRIDA KAHLO
My favorite is from FRIDA KAHLO. Frida can teach us about love, not only through her art, but also through her words. Frida had a passionate relationship with Diego Rivera, a famous mexican painter. Although she often felt the pain of betrayal in her heart, she never closed her heart to love.
“You deserve a lover who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.
You deserve a lover who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.
You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.
You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.
You deserve a lover who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry.”
