The meaning hides in the (seemingly) little things. Loving your child through thick and thin. Appreciating your partner for who they are and never trying to change their flaws.

Understanding that love means being there for the good days as well as the bad ones.

It’s the comfortable feeling you have around a person, knowing that their love is not going anywhere. Knowing that no matter how stormy it gets, they’re going to weather it with you.

Be it your mother, your father, a child or your partner, the gift of unconditional love is felt and requires no explanation.

Here is a collection of truly inspirational quotes about love that you can share with those you cherish with the strongest of intentions.
