Reflections on the Nature of Love: Inspirational Quotations and Life Lessons to Warm the Heart & Soothe the Soul

What we need to know about loving is no great mystery. We all know what constitutes loving behavior; we need but act upon it, not continually question it. Over-analysis often confuses the issue and in the end brings us no closer to insight. We sometimes become so busy classifying, separating, and examining, that we forget to remember that love is easy. It’s we who make it complicated.

We live in a world that adores passion, romance and love stories. We idealize in song, poetry and inspirational quotations, our visions of true love found in an instant, across a crowded room … or waiting just around the corner. Though it may be in our nature to equate love with romance and commitment, there is so much more to this thing we call love.

Reflections on the Nature of Love is about honoring all the different kinds of love in your life – from the butterflies of first love to the joy of discovering your soul-mate; from the pain of heartache, to the power of forgiveness. There is the beauty of a mother’s love for her children, the life-long bond of family, the commitment of long-long friendship, and of course there are words of wisdom on the joys and trials of loving life itself.

You’ll find no flowery prose here. While there are a few relevant classics, most reflections are either original or from lesser known sages sharing thoughtful insights on the human condition. The one thing they all have in common is their emphasis on the power you have to create the quality of your own life experience.

If you think about it, there really is something quite profound about the effect quotations can have on us. They motivate us to challenge ourselves, and provide encouragement when we need it most. They prove to us that we are not alone, that someone else has followed a similar path, and not only survived but grown stronger and more resilient from all of their experiences … if they can, so can we!
