While seeking some inspiration for my blog,.. I often come across things that truly feel so beautiful inside to read. It’s amazing how something you read can give you such a good feeling. We clearly experience the opposite quite often, when we read the news. I know that for me, when I read a story about someone overcoming a physical disability to achieve something really powerful and inspirational, it certainly strikes a chord within me, because I have a brother who experiences those challenges. I also know that when I see an animal being mistreated, I feel strong emotions as well. So, just in case you were having a little Valentine writers block, here are some of my favorite quotes to write in a beautiful card or or perhaps, just reading them will pull at your little heart strings as they do mine and make you smile 🙂
“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” -Rumi
“When I am with you, we stay up all night.
When you’re not here, I can’t go to sleep.
Praise God for those two insomnias!
And the difference between them.” – Rumi
“A bell is not a bell till you ring it. A song is not a song till you sing it. Love in your heart isn’t put there to stay. Love isn’t love till you give it away.”–Oscar Hammerstein II
“You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.” – Sam Keen
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.- Judy Garland
“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh”
I love you so much…so much and I want to make you happy. I need to make you happy for me to even have a shot at being happy – Ben Afflecks character in “He’s Just not that into You”
“To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced life.” Eat Pray Love
“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” – Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
When I saw you, I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew. – William Shakespeare
