What could possibly be as inspirational as a true love quote? 

It's odd.  As I was formatting this page, I found myself breaking the lines, like in poetry.  I didn't do that to the other pages.  It's kind of like love needs poetry to express itself.

How fitting that the very first story in the Bible is about love.  I once taught a high school class in mythology.  One of the stories I used in the class was Mark Twain's story about Adam and Eve, which the class compared to the Biblical story.  Teaching methods like that would probably be forbidden now, but I marveled at the dimensions of emotion the students discovered in both stories.

A "true love quote" is usually assumed to be between a man and woman.  And it usually is.  But don't overlook Mother Teresa who links "doing" and "love".

The true love quote selection that follows is but a sampling of what is available.  Please send me your favorite true love quote collection as well.
