Love and romance, in quotes

My first selection is such a profound quote that explains what true love is all about;

Would you become a pilgrim on the road of love? The first condition is that you make yourself humble as dust and ashes.” – Rumi

They say in love there is no shame
They’ll tell you in love there’s no pride
Humble yourself, shed the ego’s burden
Only then your soul is ready to receive
The blessings of love that lift you up
From the dusty pathway to the height of the sky

➰➰➰

Love is all about giving and not expecting anything in return. Love is what makes us, elevates us from the ordinary to extraordinary. Love changes us from within, hides the blemishes of our character, giving it a luminosity an aura of gentleness and kindness. If love doesn’t do this, it isn’t true love.

➰➰➰

From the time we are born to the time we die, we crave to be loved. Some would scorn the notion that they want to love or be loved, but this is something ingrained in our psyche. Money or power can give happiness for a little while but the lasting joy always comes from love. Loving and being loved.

➰➰➰

There are two types of love. One is the love we feel for others around us, family, friends, spouse, or that special someone and our fur babies. The other kind of love is the spiritual kind which connects us to our Creator and then it connects us to His creations. Both kinds of love are capable of changing us into better versions of ourselves.

  1. “Love is what makes us, elevates us from the ordinary to extraordinary.” You have that going for you Sadje. You are so kind and loving and involved with so many of us bloggers and challenges. Your love for others makes you extraordinary. “Humble yourself, shed the ego’s burden
    Only then your soul is ready to receive
    The blessings of love that lift you up…” This really spoke to me also.
    It is so hard to humble myself when I’m arguing with my husband over something silly and I’m right. LOL But as soon as I do, he follows suit and the argument is over. So simple. Will I ever learn, or must I be Always Write? Lovely entry for this week, Sadje.
