True love is the main plot point of most romantic movies and novels that are popular today, but what is true love? We’ve gathered a few true love quotes to help shed some light on the concept of true love, and how to find it.
“True love doesn’t always happen right away; it’s an ever-growing process. It develops after you’ve gone through many ups and downs, when you’ve suffered together, cried together, laughed together.” – Ricardo Montalban
True love isn’t the same thing as love at first sight. Contrary to popular belief, it does not happen instantly, or even quickly. True love is something that develops after years spent together, and trials weathered, and hardships conquered. It’s a job that you both have to spend your entire life working on if you hope to succeed.
“True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.” –Honore de Balzac
Once you’ve found true love, it’s something that you will never have to search for again, because it is something that can and will last forever. It is something that will carry you from the energetic emotions of your youth to the restful grey-haired years of your retirement.
“Love consists in giving without getting in return; in giving what is not owed, what is not due the other. That’s why true love is never based, as associations for utility or pleasure are, on a fair exchange.” – Mortimer Adler
The more love you give, to your partner or simply out into the world, the more you will receive in return but it is never an equal exchange. You may give out love your entire life and only receive it in return at the twilight of your existence, but that doesn’t mean that you should stop giving love. Give simply for the sake of giving, without expecting anything else in return.
“True love cannot be found where it does not exist, nor can it be denied where it does.” – Torquato Tasso
You can’t force true love to come to you, any more than you can will your hair to change color or your body to lose weight. In the same vein, true love cannot be denied once it has come into your life.
“For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant the flow.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
True love is the most amazing thing in the world and the more you give to others, the more that will come back to you. Once you’ve found your true love, you should hold onto it. Don’t let life get in the way of your true love.
Hopefully these true love quotes can help you bring some love into your life or put a bit more love out into the world.
