Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
In “The Four Loves”, C.S. Lewis outlines the 4 different kinds of Loves we might be so lucky as to experience through our life: Affection, Friendship, Eros (Romantic Love), and Charity.
Love is so much more than the Valentine-celebrated romantic stuff. It can be found from a multitude of sources. Maybe more importantly, it can be expressed by you in a multitude of ways!
Understanding that it can manifest itself in many different ways depending on our current life events and circumstances has helped me find love from different sources to combat loneliness.
So, whatever type of love it is you’re feeling this Valentine’s Day–or any other day of the year–these beautiful quotes might help transform those feelings into words!
