  • Although I am not a lovey-dovey person nor do I believe in love and stuff but these quotes are good to unread. Nice post.

  • “The most desired gift of love is not diamonds or roses or chocolate. It is focused attention” I love this post the most. I do believe, once you realize that you are not valued and attention is not paid, we lose our passion. Thanks for sharing.

  • Quotes are my favorite thing! I absolutely love this one, “ A true relationship is two imperfect people refusing to give up on each other.” That quote describes my relationship best!

  • All of these are really great quotes. Didn’t know there were so many. I really do like the one which talks about love taking off the masks we fear we cannot live without but know we cannot live within. So very true.

  • I love this quote, it fits a supportive relationship between lovers, friends, and coworkers:

    “We can improve our relationships with others by leaps and bounds if we become encouragers instead of critics”
