The Gift of Love
Love is always bestowed as a gift--freely, willingly, and without expectation...
We don't love to be loved; we love to love.
May no gift be too small to give, nor too simple to receive,
which is wrapped in thoughtfulness and tied with love.
When it comes to giving love, the opportunities are unlimited,
and we are all gifted.
The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.
Love is a gift. You can't buy it, you can't find it, someone has to give it to you. Learn to be receptive of that gift.
Life is the first gift, love is the second,
and understanding the third.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Love is giving the gift of oneself.
Life, the gift of nature
Love, the gift of life
A Kiss, the gift of Love
There is seemingly so little love shared in this world, it is not surprising that we ask, "Where have all the lovers gone?" Since love is the most vital energy for good that is within our power to utilize, it is puzzling why we so seldom do so. Love is just a useless, abstract idea until we put it into action...Unless we are always actively living in love, we are not utilizing the greatest gift we have been given and which we, in turn, have to offer.
The only gift is a portion of thyself.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it
and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep
watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
The most precious possession that ever comes to a man in this world is a woman's heart.
--Josiah G. Holland
A friend is a gift you give yourself.
--Robert Louis Stevenson
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love,
a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
A gift consists not in what is done or given,
but in the intention of the giver or doer.
--Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Love's greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.
--Barbara de Angelis
The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift
of unconditional love and acceptance.
He who loves with purity considers not the gift of the lover,
but the love of the giver.
