Hypnotic Quotes of Love

One of M. Scott Peck’s quotes of love reads, “Love is the free exercise of choice. Two people love each other only when they are quite capable of living without each other but choose to live with each other.”

Many people tend to think of love as a mysterious force that randomly hypnotizes two people and draws them together. But if love is really like that, then all the sacrifices you made for your beloved mean nothing because after all, those sacrifices are not by choice.

Fortunately, love is not a mysterious force as many quotes of love suggest. In his book, The Road Less Travelled, Dr. M. Scott Peck dug deep into his experience as a psychiatrist to discover what love really is—a commitment, a willful decision to care for another person. It is not a feeling like many believe, but an act of will.

Quotes of Love by Leo TolstoyDr. Peck took the concept of love from the imagination of a fairy tale and romance writer and brought it to the realm of scientific scrutiny. He came up with a definition of love that is based on observation of reality. This definition is one of the few quotes of love that really makes a lot of sense:

“Love is the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or another’s spiritual growth… Love is as love does. Love is an act of will — namely, both an intention and an action. Will also implies choice. We do not have to love. We choose to love.”

When you love somebody, you choose to make them an extension of yourself. You care for them in the same way that you care for yourself. This denotes appreciation of that other person’s good traits and the acceptance of his or her flaws. This may take away the romantic visions of love, but it saves you from being a victim of an unknown force that hypnotizes you into becoming beholden to somebody. To love somebody will always be your own choice, your own doing.

Sweet Love Quote by Anonymous

This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love.

Choosing the quotes to memorize

The first and most important part of this strategy is choosing the sweet love quotes to send to the person you like. You can choose from thousands of sweet love quotes available here or online, but make sure to find that particular quote that fully expresses how you feel for that person.

Also, get to know the person and find out what he or she likes. This will give you an idea about the types of sweet love quotes will that appeal to your object of affection. If your beloved is a rock n’ roll fan for example, choose a quote from a rock n’ roll legend.

The delivery is just as important

Sweet love quote by Amy BloomNow you have the message, but that will not be useful unless you are able to send the message to them. Don’t go for simple, unromantic mode of delivery like text messaging or reading it to them on the phone. Deliver your message to your loved one in a special way. 

You can, for example, buy a bouquet and attach a paper with your love quote written on it. You can also buy them a box of chocolates and write the love quotes on the box. 

Consistency is the key

Doing this once is not enough to let the person know how special he or she is to you. Make it a practice to express how you feel, be it in your own words or by borrowing sweet love quotes from writers and personalities all over the world. 

Here are some of my favorite Sweet Love Quotes.

(A) Sweet Love Quotes

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep, wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on.

One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU – The one who turns to his friends and says, that’s her.

LOVE: We think about it, Sing about it, Dream about it and Loose sleep worrying about it. When we don’t know we have it, we search for it.
When we discover it, we don’t know what to do with it.
When we have it, we fear losing it.
It is the constant source of pleasure and pain.
But we don’t know which it will be from one moment to the next.
It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define & impossible to live without.

If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world

The soul mate is what we aspire to and like to understand about us, is what we deem to be perfection, purity and endless regarding our own being.

Sorin Cerin

What can the love in my soul be compared to another wonderful soul which is so far and yet so close of myself?
What can this symbiosis between two souls can be? What can love be when you feel you cannot sleep at night, that every drop of dew becomes a crystal in your heart, when every breeze of wind has magical meanings?

What can love be when you feel that you want nothing more in this world that to be with the soul you love?
But what can love be in other transcendental realities? What about our souls? Are our souls a waterfall, a true Niagara or a smile, a flirt of an angel? Are our souls a mere mood of a fairy or a lightening in a summer rain?
Our souls could be all of this and much more.

But what really happens in that transcendental reality when we feel we are truly in love, that we love so much that it hurts?
That the air in the room is unbreathable, that the sentimental, spiritual or physical distances kill us?
What happens when dawn find us sadder than ever, looking for an excuse or an argument for the person we love so much, our Great Love?
What are all these?

What are the looks lost in the desert horizons of unfulfillment or those in the eyes that deeply loose each other in the others inside the souls?

Sorin Cerin

What I needed most was to love and to be loved, eager to be caught.
Happily I wrapped those painful bonds around me; and sure enough, I would be lashed with the red-hot pokers or jealousy, by suspicions and fear, by burst of anger and quarrels.

St. Augustine

(T) Sweet Love Quotes

How many times do I love, again?
Tell me how many beads there are In a silver chain Of evening rain Unravelled from the trembling main and threading the eye of a yellow star – So many time do I love again.

You being in my arms, heart by heart feels like our love would never end.

Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get, it’s what you are expected to give – which is everything.

Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.

She’s gone.
I am abused, and my relief must be to loathe her.

William Shakespeare

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers eyes.

Winning Her Love With Shakespeare Love Quotes and More

With Shakespeare love quotes, it is so much easier to profess one’s affection and deep feelings to another, and it can be challenging, but you can do this with the help of these romantic expressions.

With a lot at stake on the table, such as one’s longtime friendship for example, professing one’s love can be a daunting task. There is always the possibility of rejection, but the feeling of rejection is nothing compared to wondering what might have been. It’s better to express how you feel and know how the other person feels about you than spending one’s life wondering. So what’s a guy to do?

Instead of the common and now usual route of employing technology, going through the more old school way of courtship still seals the deal much better than a carefully worded text message or a phone call. Writing a letter expressing one’s feelings with personal messages or something as romantic as Shakespeare love quotes tells the receiver that they are truly special to you. The gesture just simply stands out and is absolutely memorable.

Shakespeare love quoteAnother way to make someone know of one’s feelings is through the help of his or her friends. For women, letting someone know of their intentions can be much more of an uphill climb given society’s rules, but life is too short to keep one’s feelings a secret. With the help of some close friends or relatives, planning is easier as they know of the person’s interests and hobbies. No matter how many times it’s been done, flash mobs are just totally adorable and gets the message across in a fun way. Does he love sports? Signs can be put up that he can read during the game.

Better yet, the straightforward approach works just as well! A candlelit dinner by the pool or in a romantic restaurant, eating really good food and some music and some wine sets the mood for finally making someone know they are loved.

These may be a bit on the grandiose side of things, Shakespeare love quotes included, but really, isn’t that what love is about?

One of the Love Quotes About Marriage That Can Make Your Union Stronger

One of the love quotes about marriage that talks about what it takes to make it last forever was written by Mignon McLaughlin: “A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.”

Marriage some people say, is the gravestone of romance. There is some merit to this considering how couples change once they get married. During the dating phase, most couples are so sweet, caring and loving, but years after they get married, all the sweetness gradually disappears and the relationship becomes burdened with responsibilities. Many couples lose their focus on their relationship as their attention shifts to their careers, kids, and other priorities. 

But with effort and choice, not all marriages end up this way. There are actually many married couples who become sweeter once they get married. These couples choose to commit and make an effort to treat their marriage as their most valuable investment.

Mignon McLaughlin gives people one of the most poignant love quotes about marriage—and it makes a lot of sense. Marriage should not be the end of the sweet romantic relationship that started when two people fell in love. It should be an opportunity to learn more about your spouse and love him or her for the new things you discover. 

Quote about marriage by Robert QuillenGetting to know your spouse better and strengthening your relationship require that you spend quality time together. This means conversations shouldn’t just be about responsibilities all the time, but also about your dreams and plans for your marriage. Do the things that you used to do as a couple before you got married, like going on a romantic vacation or watching movies without your kids.

Of course, family responsibilities are important too, but these shouldn’t get in the way of continually enjoying quality moments with your spouse. After all, you married your better half because of love. Would it not defeat the purpose if the love is lost because of the marriage?

Maybe the reason for the high number of divorce in the world today is that couples fail to cultivate their relationship further after marriage. Love is like a plant, it can grow stronger when cared for. Many love quotes about marriage can also attest to this fact. If you feel you and your spouse are drifting apart emotionally, take time off from work, take him or her on a vacation to some romantic place, and let the love blossom again. There is no limit to how hard you can fall in love with someone if you commit yourself fully to that person.

All of it… all the time, every day.

Your life will not go unwitnessed – because I will be your witness.’

A butterfly in her cocoon

Two lovers dancing in the night
A million stars without form
A little boy resting
A little girl praying
The eye of the storm
Wherever you are
Wherever you will be
My still point in a turning world

Lovers Quotes Tell the Difference Between Loving and Being in Love

Many lovers quotes show the huge difference between loving someone and being in love with someone. One such quote was written by Indira Gandhi, which reads “There is not love where there is no will.”

People like the feeling of being in love, but it is a rather fleeting emotion that fades away as the object of one’s affection reveals his or her whole self. Loving someone, on the other hand, is a choice you need to make each day. It takes will and commitment to continue to love someone, including all his or her flaws and weaknesses.

Loving someone knows no limits, but when you are in love, your feelings may change once the relationship undergoes a period of change and challenges. A popular lovers quote by Maya Angelou says, “Love recognizes no barriers. Love jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

Lovers quote by Victor HugoPerhaps the most important factor that distinguishes loving someone from being in love is selflessness. When you love someone, you focus on the needs of that person. You want to make that person happy. When you are in love, the focus is on how good you feel about the relationship and how much you want your feelings to be reciprocated by the other person.

Loving someone, unlike being in love, is never self-seeking. Bestselling contemporary romance writer Colleen Hoover talks about what selflessness means in any relationship. She says, “Selflessness. It should be the basis of every relationship. If a person truly cares about you, they’ll get more pleasure from the way they make you feel, rather than the way you make them feel.”

Being in love is one of the most magical feelings in the world, but choosing to love someone is one of the bravest and most meaningful decisions that you can make in life.

Lovers Quotes by Famous People

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.

– Rumi

With my last breath, I’ll exhale my love for you. I hope it’s a cold day, so you can see what you meant to me.


– Jarod Kintz

I want morning and noon and nightfall with you. I want your tears, your smiles, your kisses…the smell of your hair, the taste of your skin, the touch of your breath on my face. I want to see you in the final hour of my life…to lie in your arms as I take my last breath.

– Lisa Kleypas

All discarded lovers should be given a second chance, but with somebody else.

– Mae West

Falling in love is when she falls asleep in your arms and wakes up in your dreams.

– Unknown

Was I bitter? Absolutely. Hurt? You bet your sweet ass I was hurt. Who doesn’t feel a part of their heart break at rejection. You ask yourself every question you can think of, what, why, how come, and then your sadness turns to anger. That’s my favorite part. It drives me, feeds me, and makes one hell of a story.

– Jennifer Salaiz

She didn’t belong anywhere and she never really belonged to anyone. And everyone else belonged somewhere and to someone. People thought she was too wonderful. But she only wanted to belong to someone. People always thought she was too wonderful to belong to them or that something too wonderful would hurt too much to lose. And that’s why she liked him– because he just thought she was crazy.

– C. JoyBell

In this world, it is too common for people to search for someone to lose themselves in. But I am already lost. I will look for someone to find myself in.

Patience and wisdom walk hand in hand, like two one-armed lovers.

– Jarod Kintz

Sometimes you want to say, “I love you, but…”
Yet the “but” takes away the ‘I love you’. In love their are no ‘buts’ or ‘if’s’ or ‘when’. It’s just there, and always. No beginning, no end. It’s the condition-less state of the heart. Not a feeling that comes and goes at the whim of the emotions. It is there in our heart, a part of our heart…eventually grafting itself into each limb and cell of our bodies. Love changes our brain, the way we move and talk. Love lives in our spirit and graces us with its presence each day, until death.

To say “I love you, but….” is to say, “I did not love you at all”.

I say this to you now: I love you, with no beginning, no end. I love you as you have become an extra necessary organ in my body. I love you as only a girl could love a boy. Without fear. Without expectations. Wanting nothing in return, except that you allow me to keep you here in my heart, that I may always know your strength, your eyes, and your spirit that gave me freedom and let me fly.

– Coco J. Ginger

Lovers Quotes by Famous People

We can’t be lovers because we both have moustaches. But since you’re a lady, and I’m a gentleman, I’ll shave mine off.

– Jarod Kintz

That’s when I finally got it. I finally understood. It wasn’t the thought that counted. It was the actual execution that mattered, the showing up for somebody. The intent behind it wasn’t enough. Not for me. Not anymore. It wasn’t enough to know that deep down, he loved me. You had to actually say it to somebody, show them you cared. And he just didn’t. Not enough.

– Jenny Han

It takes three to make love, not two: you, your spouse, and God. Without God people only succeed in bringing out the worst in one another. Lovers who have nothing else to do but love each other soon find there is nothing else. Without a central loyalty life is unfinished.

– Fulton J. Sheen

I don’t want to love him—this would be so much simpler if I didn’t. But I do.

He’s funny, and passionate, and strong, and he believes in me more than I even believe in myself. When he looks at me, I feel like I could take on the whole world and come out standing tall. I like myself better when I’m with him, because of how he sees me. He makes me feel beautiful and powerful, like I’m the most important thing in the world, and I don’t know how to walk away from that. I don’t know how to walk away from him.

Stubbornly he shook his head. “No, I know that I have to be with you. Everything else is just …. details.

Lovers Quotes by Famous People

I want you to spend the night,” you said. And it was definitely your phrasing that ensured it. If you had said, “Let’s have sex,” or “Let’s go to my place,” or even “I really want you,” I’m not sure we would have gone quite as far as we did. But I loved the notion that the night was mine to spend, and I immediately decided to spend it with you.

He shook his head, just looking at me. 
– “What?” I asked.
– “Nothing” he said.
– “Why are you looking at me like that?”
Augustus half smiled. “Because you`re beautiful. I enjoy looking at beautiful people, and I decided a while ago not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence.” A brief awkward silence ensued. Augustus plowed through: “I mean, particularly given that, as you so deliciously pointed out, all of this will end in oblivion and everything.”

His every syllable flirted. Honestly, he kind of turned me on. I didn`t even know that guys could turn me on – not, like, in real life.

She puts her hands on either side of my face, and the room falls away. I have never gotten so lost in a kiss before.

And then, the space between us explodes. My heart keeps missing beats and my hands cannot bring her close enough to me. I taste her and realize I have been starving.

I have loved before, but it didn’t feel like this.

I have kissed before, but it didn’t burn me alive.

Maybe it lasts a minute, and maybe it’s an hour. All I know is that kiss, and how soft her skin is when it brushes against mine, and that even if I did not know it until now, I have been waiting for this person forever.

– Jodi Picoult
