Love Proverbs

Love is considered to be a positive and negative: with its virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”; and its vice representing human moral flaw, akin to vanity, selfishness, amour-propre, and egotism, as it potentially leads people into a type of mania, obsessiveness or codependency.

We have collected and put the best proverbs about LOVE from around the world. Enjoy reading these insights and feel free to share this page on your social media to inspire others.

May these Love Proverbs inspire you to never give up and keep working towards your goals. Who knows—success could be just around the corner.
