The Top 501 Inspiring Love and Relationship Quotes


-by David Riklan

Introduction
Words can inspire and produce hope, fear, laughter, and sometimes tears.
We can become obsessed with finding that quote, that one proverb of
inspiration that will stick with us for the rest of our lives. I am no different.
For years, through my business of bringing Self Improvement wisdom to our
readers, I have searched myself, for words that are meaningful, inspiring,
and I have come across hundreds. Our main website,
http://www.SelfGrowth.com contains hundreds of resources on Inspiration
and Motivation.
I shared these quotes in a book I wrote a couple of years ago called, The
Top 501 Inspirational Quotes of All Time. I scoured many websites, and
consulted my friends, my family and our readers for these pearls of wisdom.
Now I want to do that again, except this time, I bring to you, The Top 501
Inspiring Love and Relationship Quotes.
Why change my focus? Arent there enough inspirational and love quotes
out on the web? All you have to do is type love and quotes into any search
engine and thousands of websites will surface. It can be overwhelming, to be
bombarded by hundreds of quotes. Then you ask yourself, where do I start?
I can tell you where I began. I started with a simple survey, sent out to the
over 120,000 subscribers of our Loving Today Newsletter. I asked them
simply, What is your favorite love quote? The response was astounding.
Emails began to pour in at an exuberant pace, filled with quotes from
movies, books, poetry, etc.
What was to be the next step though? This would be to prioritize them.
This was going to be a challenge. How does one do this? After some
consideration, I thought I should use the internet; the resource that my
business was based on. It also allowed me to start this project. I had gone
there to ask people for their opinions and now I would go back to help me
organize the quotes.
The Top 501 Inspiring Love and Relationship Quotes http://www.SelfGrowth.com

I began the task of taking every quote and putting it into a search engine to
see how many websites it appeared on. This told me how popular it was. By
taking that same number I began to rank the quotes. The # 1 quote would be
the quote listed on the most websites. Our # 1 most popular quote was, All
you need is love. We found this quote on over 2 Million Websites.
No matter what religion, race, or creed we are, what is the one thing that
unites us all? As clichd as this may sound, it is love. Whether love of our
families, friends, or neighbors, we love. We dedicate a whole holiday to this
emotion. We each love something.
In my life, my greatest loves are my family, my wife and children, my
parents, my siblings, the list extends. They are my inspiration for getting up
every morning, no matter how I am feeling, they move me to live my life.
They are my driving force. They are the reason why I am writing this book.
This brings me to my last question, why quotes?
For years I have loved quotes, in particular love quotes. I would memorize
them and repeat them to myself over and over again. Just like many other
people I found them to be a great source of inspiration.
I use them in conversations.
I use them for laughs.
I use them to invoke happiness.
I use them in my writing.
I just use them.
Thinking back, I have always used quotes. They are a form of language and
expression that has been around for thousands of years, from Confucius
insightful proverbs to the witty repartee of modern day movies and
television. They can apply to almost every situation and help us to maintain
connectivity with each other.
While these are all great reasons, the most important is that I have always
felt quotes allow us to express what we are feeling. Because of that, I feel
inspired to share what I consider one of the most, if not the most, important
emotion we can have, love. I am lucky to have family and friends who I
love, and to them I dedicate this book.
The Top 501 Inspiring Love and Relationship Quotes http://www.SelfGrowth.com

These love quotes, are inspiring and timeless. This book is filled with words
that have spanned generations and can still be used today. Love is something
that is all around and even the biggest cynic cant deny that love has a
quality that we are all attracted to.
Who am I to tell you to read this? I am just like everyone else. I am an
ordinary person who is lucky enough to have family and friends who I love.
As a result I felt inspired and motivated to share not only my favorite love
quotes, but yours as well. These quotes were collected from people just like
you. They inspired, helped them, or just entertained them. The idea
motivated them enough to reply to my question.
Quotes are an amazing tool of communication. They have defined
generations as well as linked them. They will be with us forever. Love will
be with us forever. And bringing these two areas together only demonstrates
the power of them.
So I ask you, if you want read this book, use it for your own purposes, but
keep in mind that you dont have to be a poet to enjoy them. You are just
like everyone else; you are a person who is searching for that driving force,
our reason for being, to love.
I ask you to keep this in mind, One word frees us of all the weight and pain
of life: that word is love. Sophocles.
