Having a hard time appreciating the underlying wisdom of cute quotes
? Keep in mind that many of them were written by the great thinkers of our time. On the flip side, there are those that reflect the true-life experiences of famous personalities. It's best not to get the two confused. Here's an easy test to determine which is which. Read these two quotes and try to guess the correct author: "The way I see it, you should live everyday like it's your birthday."
And "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
One of those cute quotes was written by Lord Alfred Tennyson
; the other by Paris Hilton
. Can you tell the difference? Good!
If you've been through the trials and tribulations of teen love
, you know that cute quotes
regularly pop up on Facebook pages and other social media sites. The younger generation spends enormous amounts of time contemplating the concepts of love and passion with that "special someone" and imagining the magical wonders that lie ahead. I have tried to provide some wisdom to my own offspring in guiding them away from the truly tasteless phrases that I sometimes see posted.
At times like these, "thinking people" (like you and I) turn to the professionals for inspiration (aka, 1-love-quotes.com). These cute quotes don't have to be elaborate sonnets such as Shakespeare's quote "So dear I love him that with him, all deaths I could endure. Without him, live no life.
" Hmmm. You know, thinking back to my teenage years, it did seem as if every relationship was a life and death matter, and I would pine for days on end dreaming about the object of my affection and agonizing over why he didn't seem to know I existed. I guess Shakespeare
is probably on the right track.
How many budding romantics can relate to this rhyming ditty: "Ignore the risk, and take the fall, if it's meant to be, it's worth it all"
. The author is anonymous, so he or she will never come after you if you grab a guitar and turn this cute quote into a melodic one-hit wonder to impress the opposite sex. I would do it but unfortunately, I have a form of topophobia that I call Lespaulophobia (the fear of playing guitars in public).
"When I saw you I was afraid to meet you. When I met you I was afraid to kiss you. When I kissed you I was afraid to love you. Now that I love you, I am afraid to lose you."
This cute quote wins the honesty award for the day; a kind of "you had me at hello"
Jerry McGuire-level of honesty that would elevate any relationship to the next level. In our crazy, fast-paced world, there's never enough time to express our true thoughts to the special people in our lives - a simple gesture like a sticky note on the bathroom mirror can really make someone's day.
I show my husband how much I love him by making sure the refrigerator is stocked with his favorite microbrew. Which reminds me of our final cute quote by Agatha Christie
: "It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them."
As I'm writing this, my hubby just came into the house from doing yard work in the rain, clothes soaked and dripping water onto the floor. Ridiculous? Obviously. Seductive? Hardly. Endearing? Definitely. Looks like it's time for a cute quote
, a towel and a frothy Hefeweizen for my Prince Charming.
