Unconditional Love Quotes
When it rains it reminds me of you. Although 2000 miles away is so far away, I still always walk outside in the rain and kiss it just for you. It never fails me. The rain will always come and I'll always love you. The next time you see a storm on the horizon, don't worry, it's just heaven doing me the favor of taking you my kiss. Walk outside and kiss the rain whenever you need me.
Close together or far apart, you're forever in my heart.
Missing someone gets easier every day because even though you are one day further from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will.
"Distance never separates two hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad, because I miss you, I remind myself of how lucky I am to have someone so special to miss."
"If the days allow us to see each other, memories will, and if my eyes can't see you, my heart will never forget you."
The love of a mother is unconditional. A dog loves its master unconditionally. An infant has unconditional love for its mother. You will see that naive love is unconditional. It is tender, caring, and nurturing. The Bible says that Jesus loved his disciples unconditionally. Danish band, Michael Learns to Rock, popularly known by their acronym MLTR, sang, "Even if you want to go alone. I would still love you when tomorrow comes. If you need someone to ease the pain, you can lean on me. My love will still remain."
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
No matter how many times she was told that she was loved, there was no recognition that the proof was in the abandonment.
Unconditional love is hard to compete with.
Parents were the only ones obligated to love you; from the rest of the world you had to earn it.
Accept the children the way we accept trees -- with gratitude, because they are a blessing -- but do not have expectations or desires. You don’t expect trees to change, you love them as they are.
Stephen Kendrick, The Love Dare
The only way love can last a lifetime is if it's unconditional. The truth is this: love is not determined by the one being loved, but rather by the one choosing to love.
Standing By Your Beloved
Unconditional love is about standing by your loved one through thick and thin, through good and bad times. Ben E. King sang, "When the night has come and the land is dark. And the moon is the only light we'll see; no, I won't be afraid, no, I won't be afraid. Just as long as you stand, stand by me." This kind of love is about stability of emotions; untouched by passing fancies. It's not an infatuation or a crush that vanishes overnight. Unconditional love is immortal, it can never wither or fade. Richard Marx sang, "Wherever you go, whatever you do, I will be right here waiting for you. Whatever it takes, or how my heart breaks, I will be right here waiting for you." The unconditional lover is not afraid to wait, even if his or her love were to go away.
Unconditional Love Triumphs
Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, "I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant." Unconditional love has to be patient and should be willing to wait, even if it means forever. "I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love," said Mother Teresa.
Forgiveness is an intrinsic part of unconditional love. When you love someone deeply, you find the heart to forgive. You can overlook the blemishes because your love overcomes the flaws. Martin Luther King Jr. beautifully put it in words when he said, "He who is devoid of the power to forgive, is devoid of the power to love." Unconditional love never imposes, never tries to change the other person. Writer Thomas Merton said, "The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them."
