200+ Deep Love Quotes To Express Your Desires

Everyone talks about ‘love’. But what’s love? Poets and philosophers have wrestled with the question and have penned books and poems with deep love quotes.

Is ‘love’ just a feeling?

Love is action. Love is tolerance. Love is acceptance. Love is letting go. Love is giving. Love is receiving. Love is commitment. Love is a promise. Love is a connection. Love is hope. Love is a journey.

Love is just so much more!

Broadly, love can be of 4 different types.

There is the ‘romantic’ love that you feel for your partner.
There is the ‘friendly’ love that you feel for your friends.
There is the ‘affectionate’ that you feel for your family.
There is the ‘unconditional’ love that you feel for your God.

This selection of quotes about ‘love’ and ‘being in love’ will help you express your feelings to your loved ones, be it your partner or friend or family members perfectly…because it’s high time you let them know just how you feel, isn’t it?
