Hi, you all, like me, loving and love seeking readers.
I put together some of my favorite love quotes, some by myself, others from famous thinkers, and thoughts about what love could be. Why? Because I believe in LOVE
To write about love is a tricky thing because many people understand many different things under this four-letter word. Here I write down what I think of it and not what you or anyone else has to believe. I live for many years now and have gone through quite some transformations of what I think of love and how I handle it.
My first love quote for today.
Let me first explain how I understand love today.
All my life I am interested to learn what love really is. Today I say, love is a strong energetic feeling that one carries within one’s self. I do not need to receive love to feel love, I am love and all I do is done with love. What I talk about, has nothing to do with romance or partnership. It is the way I look at things and the energy that I send to everything that comes in my way.
You might think that is childish thinking and has no value in today’s world. Then I must say, love, is my greatest help to survive in this sometimes rather loveless world.

My most recent love quote
Of course, there were and are much greater thinkers than me talking about love. The theme, Love, is the most discussed and thought about topic since humans are thinking. All great and famous thinkers in history made their thoughts about love and wrote them down.
One of them, Mevlâna Jalâluddîn Rumi
He dedicated his life to get the message of love to the world. He was born in Afganistan in the year 1207 and later emigrated to Turkey because of wars and threats to his life.
For me and many others, he was the greatest writer about love. His poetry and wisdom are being studied until today. He is one of the most famous members of the spiritual school of the Sufi movement.
You will find love quotes from many great thinkers, and Rumi wrote thousands of them.
Citation of Rumi:
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. Rumi
Physicists like Einstein thought about love
The probably most famous thinker of today’s world, Albert Einstein, once wrote this letter to his daughter.
Sice I can think of, every time someone asked me if I would believe in God, I would say, I believe in Love. This is a long time before I heard of this letter from Albert Einstein or the Sufi teachings. I always found to believe in such an abstract thing as God, how it is described by all religions, is not possible for me.
For me, it is much easier to understand the great mystic of God when I just call it love. Actually, all religions speak of the unconditioned love of God. But after all, all religions were and still are used to spread hate, fear, power, and violence. If the religions had to talk about love being god instead of some abstract creature, everyone can interpret as they want, religion would be much harder to be misused to create division and hate.
That is why, since my early age, I call myself a love warrior. The word war might irritate a bit in the context of love but as my weapons are love, understanding, empathy, and tolerance, it should be seen as very unaggressive.
Einstein’s famous love quote
When we live without love we can not see.
The first step to getting access to real love is to love one’s self. As long as we depend and wait for others to love us we can not love someone else. Only by learning to love and respect our selfs we can learn to understand and love others.
For to love our selves, we have to forgive us for all we think we did not good. How can that be? Only God can forgive us they say. I say don’t wait for a God to forgive you, don’t ask a higher preacher to forgive your sins. Only me really knows me and therefore can forgive for all I did. Love made you forgive yourself and grow to be a better person.
No one is a friend to his friend who does not love in return
Plato, the great Greek philosopher lived 427 BC. That is quite some time ago, still what he said is true today. To be a friend of a friend means to give love to this person. This, for me, works with every person I get in contact. Friend, customers, bosses, and a possible enemy. It does not make blind for what I am for these persons. To look at them with love leaves them transparent and easy to understand. Most people I encounter react very positively to me.
I listen to them, show interest and let them know my real feelings and thoughts. To talk the truth with respect is the key to every others heart. We, the people of this world are made out of one and the same energy. When we interact on the same level, the level of love and truth, there is a total understanding among each other. Trust can grow and life can be enjoyed.
Charlie Chaplin said
You need Power, only when you want to do something harmful otherwise love is enough to get everything done.
Isn’t it remarkable, there are no wars about the truth of love. All the famous and successful people that wrote about love do not fight with one another about the meaning of love. There are different aspects of what people call love but there was never a killing or repression about what who thinks or says about the truth of love.
I think this is magic already. About love are more text, books, movies, and music written than any other subject throughout all times. It is “the” one theme that all cultures and religions are shouting in the same direction.
It is the most sought mystery of life for almost every human being and even animals and plants we think do have an understanding and respond to love.
I just found this experiment That Emil R. made and posted to youtube
Amazing isn’t it? How you treat a handful of cooked rice in a glass jar does influence its outcome.
One last love quote we all know, by John Lennon
ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE
With all this said, I have to leave you until my next post. There is still a lot to learn about the mystery of life and I am sure I will have a next good idea what I can write about.
I hope you enjoyed my work and hope to hear from you sometime.
With all my love Stefan
