This week, I share some of the most thought-provoking, non-romantic reflections on love I’ve come across recently.

But I’m not sharing these definitions just to be “deep” or cool, this is information for transformation: if we don’t do anything differently with the information we receive what is the use?

“…and love is an act of faith in another person, not an act of surrender.”

~paulo coelho


“This is the meaning of true love, to give until it hurts.”

~mother theresa


“He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day. Choice: that was the thing.”

~sherman alexie


“This is what it truly means to love: to be generous in our interpretation of another person.”

~alain de botton


“Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.”

~zora neale hurston

Have some of your own? Feel free to share.
