3 Great Quotes about Unconditional Love

September 28, 2016

The amazing thing about unconditional love is that it has such a profound impact. It has the power to make you feel complete without even thinking about it. When you love someone unconditionally, you truly see them.

You can see their pain without judging them, and you can show them compassion because you understand them so deeply. Have you ever felt this way about someone? Do you think you might never be able to connect with someone like that? Everybody has their own stories and viewpoints on the subject. Today, we’d love to share with you a few quotes about unconditional love that you’ll, well, love.

We hope these quotes will help you to understand what this kind of connection means if you’ve never experienced it before. And if you have, we invite you to relive it here.

It exists in every one of us

“Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It’s not ‘I love you’ for this or that reason, not ‘I love you if you love me.’ It’s love for no reason, love without an object.”

-Ram Dass-

In this quote, spiritual teacher Ram Dass gives a pretty complete definition of unconditional love. He reminds us that unconditional love is completely separate from what the other person gives you. He also makes us understand that this feeling goes beyond just romantic relationships.

You can feel unconditional love for your parents and your best friends. And it just exists; it’s not necessary for the other person to “earn” it. Throughout your life, you meet those people who are always there for their loved ones.

Just like there are negative people, there are others that go through life leaving a halo of love in their wake. For them, it doesn’t matter who you are, they’ll treat you with affection all the same. They make you feel at ease, like you belong to something.

You should include yourself

“The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well.”

-Elizabeth Kübler-Ross-

This writer and psychiatrist touches on a very important point: unconditional love also involves you. Ram Dass already said that this feeling is a way of being, so it’s easy to understand that you can love yourself just like you love others. You can’t give to others something you deny yourself. How many times have you viciously criticized yourself? Do you really think that if you behave this way towards yourself, you can be better with others?

This quote is great because it reminds us that we can’t forget about self-love. It seems like this is one of the most difficult things we can do as human beings, learning to value who you are, to see yourself as unique and worthwhile.

Time is a gift

“To love everyone unconditionally does not mean to give everyone your unconditional time. Sometimes, to love completely, we must never see someone again. This, too, is love. This is giving someone the freedom to exist and be happy, even if it must be without you.”

-Vironika Tugaleva-

You’ll certainly love this quote about unconditional love. Vironika Tugaleva is a speaker who reminds us that sometimes the best way to love is to let go. Have you ever drifted away from someone so that they could find their own happiness? This is a decision that takes a lot of time and thought to make. We tend to think that the people we love will be by our side for as long as possible.

Giving them that space is a good way to show that you want them to be happy. They may or may not recognize that, and maybe you’ll never see them again. In any case, it’s always best to remember the good times you had than to see that person feeling sad or incomplete.

These quotes about unconditional love make it clear that your desires should never be an obstacle for the other person, and that you should love in this way. Maybe you already have and didn’t even realize it. But what really matters is knowing that we’re all capable of it.
