True Love

"To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us." -Tim Keller
"True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding." -Ellen G. White
So look at life with love in your eyes and you'll be surprised how beautiful this world can be :)

"Let someone love you just the way you are: as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of yourself that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room." -Marc Hack
Be More
"I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love." -Mother Teresa
"And God said, love your enemy, and I obeyed Him and loved myself." -Khalil Gibran
