Love is one of the most intense and fulfilling experiences that human beings have. Therefore, it’s no surprise that it’s also one of the most talked about emotions that governs our behavior.
For thousands of years it has been one of the primary topics of the written word, and if we look at what’s been written about love, we can clearly see how attitudes toward it have changed throughout the centuries.
It’s been a long-since held cliche that women are more expressive of their emotion and feelings of love than men. Whether this still holds true is beyond the scope of this post, but what we can say, is that there is a deep library of quotes from women about how they love men. These quotes may take on a serious or solemn tone, or they may at times be serious, humorous or even prophetic. They touch on all the aspects of love, from beginning to end, joy through heartbreak, and explore the experience from an insider’s perspective.
This is often a lot more intimate and less obscure than the hollywood-esque version of love that is sold in popular culture, but it’s a lot more relatable.
