The best love quotes

Looking for the best love quotes out there? I've taken these from a variety of sources.

Note that you will find no repeats of these, on other quotes pages on this site. Though the underlying topic of each page of this site is love and soulmates, I want each page to be special and unique.

So these aren't relationship quotes or heartbreak quotes and aren't really soulmate quotes. They're love plain and simple, words on the universal threads of light that connect us all and inspire millions to marvel at its brilliance.

Love inside ourselves of course, is where soulmate love starts. So what better way to start than to reflect upon the insightful words of others as we ponder the complexity of our own hearts.

So there you have it! With a drum roll please, here are...
