50 Shades of Love

Today, February 14, is Valentine’s Day in many parts of the world. It was, and in some places still is, a day that honored St. Valentine. Valentine’s day is also known as a day for love and lovers. The day was first associated with love in Europe during the Middle Ages. For the record, I’m definitely on-board with a day for love. Love, after-all, is the embodiment of GYA.Β  Maybe we should have a few more of them!

I had the idea for this post back in September shortly after I posted 50 Shades of Gratitude. That was a post which presented 50 (49 actually) wonderful quotes on gratitude. There are many more than that on love, so I decided to do something similar.

Many languages have a number of different words to express ‘love,’ and its various types as well as nuances. In English however, we have only one. And boy, can that get a little confusing and cumbersome at times! Still, I’d like to share with you, for Valentine’s Day, some of my favorite quotes about love. And because this post is in English, be forewarned, these quotes encompass many shades of love. Here are 50. Enjoy! Happy Valentine’s Day and love to all.

  1. Thank you soooo much, this collection of quotes is such a gift!!! It’s almost too much to take in all at once, the richness of beauty and profundity. The Maya Angelou quote touched me especially, and Pablo Neruda too – the Cherry tree one, oh…and the Mother Teresa one..they’re all stunning. I feel so uplifted…thanks for giving me such a beautiful start to the day!
