Love Quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh | Thich Nhat Hanh Love Quotes
How to Love by Thich Nhat Hanh is one of my favorite books on love and relationships. It’s not just romantic love, but friendship, familial love, and love for all of humanity. But I especially think this is a good book for learning to love yourself as you love someone else. 🙂 Here are some quotes about how to love by Thich Nhat Hanh.
1. “You are part of the universe; you are made of stars. When you look at your loved one, you see that he is also made of stars and carries eternity inside. Looking in this way, we naturally feel reverence.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
2. “Every one of us is trying to find our true home. Some of us are still searching. Our true home is inside, but it’s also in our loved ones around us. When you’re in a loving relationship, you and the other person can be a true home for each other.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
3. “When you love someone, you have to have trust and confidence. Love without trust is not yet love. Of course, first you have to have trust, respect, and confidence in yourself. Trust that you have a good and compassionate nature.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
4. “Understanding someone’s suffering is the best gift you can give another person. Understanding is love’s other name. If you don’t understand, you can’t love.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
5. “The first element of true love is loving kindness. The essence of loving kindness is being able to offer happiness. You can be the sunshine for another person. You can’t offer happiness until you have it for yourself. So build a home inside by accepting yourself and learning to love and heal yourself. Learn how to practice mindfulness in such a way that you can create moments of happiness and joy for your own nourishment. Then you have something to offer the other person.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
6. “When we feed and support our own happiness, we are nourishing our ability to love. That’s why to love means to learn the art of nourishing our happiness.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
7. “Love is a living, breathing thing. There is no need to force it to grow in a particular direction. If we start by being easy and gentle with ourselves, we will find it is just there inside of us, solid and healing.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Love Quotes from Marianne Williamson | Marianne Williamson Love Quotes
Marianne Williamson’s A Return to Love is one of the most inspiring and enlightening books I’ve ever read. She teaches principles from a text called A Course in Miracles and translates the teachings into modern day lessons of love and fear.
This book is illuminating and eye-opening to the truth of the world and ourselves. Here are some quotes about love from Marianne Williamson.
1. “Our self-perception determines our behavior. If we think we’re small, limited, inadequate creatures, then we tend to behave that way, and the energy we radiate reflects those thoughts no matter what we do. If we think we’re magnificent creatures with an infinite abundance of love and power to give, then we tend to behave that way. Once again, the energy around us reflects our state of awareness.” – Marianne Williamson
2. “People who have the most to teach us are often the ones who reflect back to us the limits to our own capacity to love, those who consciously or unconsciously challenge our fearful positions. They show us our walls. Our walls are our wounds—the places where we feel we can’t love any more, can’t connect any more deeply, can’t forgive past a certain point. We are in each other’s lives in order to help us see where we most need healing, and in order to help us heal.” – Marianne Williamson
3. “Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment—or unlearning—of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts. Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life.” – Marianne Williamson
4. “What that means is this: Love is real. It’s an eternal creation and nothing can destroy it. Anything that isn’t love is an illusion. Remember this, and you’ll be at peace.” – Marianne Williamson
5. “When we choose to love, or to allow our minds to be one with God, then life is peaceful. When we turn away from love, the pain sets in. And whether we love, or close our hearts to love, is a mental choice we make, every moment of every day.” – Marianne Williamson
