“Love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire … The salvation of man is through love and in love.”
Viktor E. Frankl penned these quotes about love in his best-selling book, Man’s Search for Meaning, which has sold over 12 million copies worldwide and remains one of the most influential books of our time.
You may wonder how life’s meaning and purpose, often associated with wealth, fame, and fortune, have anything to do with love. After all, isn’t love all about romance and chocolate and date nights?
On some level, yes. Yet on a deeper level, it can be all of those things … and more. After all, as you may know, Frankl’s book includes his experience in a concentration camp. Not an obvious place to be singing the praises of love.
And yet sing he does, just as many of the best love quotes do. Because no matter how you look at it, love, the thought of love, and the pursuit of love, always seems to bring you through a journey of happiness. What is more, they inspire people to pen more quotes about love. Love may begin with the flutter of butterflies in your stomach and then grow into a fullness of your soul.
Enjoy some of the best love quotes for every type of love.
