What is that draws us to quotes? I believe it’s the fact that someone in another place and another time had the same thoughts and feelings that we are currently going through.
In a sense quotes are something intangible that connects all of us together, no matter what time period we are in.
During this long distance relationship; there have been nights I have felt so lonely that I cried myself to sleep. Days that I have felt so lucky to have such a wonderful partner in my life who knows me better than I know myself.
In those times is when I seek quotes, I seek understanding from someone else, I seek hope in what others might feel is an impossible relationship.
Long distance relationships are definitely not for the faint of heart but at the same time that is what makes these types of relationships more rewarding.
During the past few years of our relationship I have found and read probably over a thousand quotes.
The quotes below are going to be the ones that resonated with me, I hope some of them will resonate with you as well.
My heart is your home, wherever in the world you are – you will always have a place to stay.
Maybe, I thought, it’s not the distance that’s the problem, but how you handle it.
No matter where I am, no matter where I go, your heart is my northern light, I will always find my way home.
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
-A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
I’ll hold you in my heart, till I can hold you in my arms.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
Tonight I can write the saddest lines. To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her. To hear the immense night, still more immense without her.
– Pablo Neruda
And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
Can miles truly separate? If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there?
Definition of a long distance relationship: Inconveniently the most effective way to find out if you really love each other.
Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for.
I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.
In true love the smallest distance is too great and the greatest distance can be bridged.
Love will travel as far as you let it. It has no limits.
I exist in two places, here and where you are.
The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.
-Thich Nhat Hanh
Distance is not for the fearful, it’s for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough.
But nothing makes a room feel emptier than wanting someone in it.
The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.
The art of love is largely the art of persistence.
Distance unites missing beats of two hearts in love.
Love knows not distance; it hath no continent; its eyes are for the stars.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
I knew when I met you an adventure was going to happen.
-A.A. Milne – Winnie The Pooh
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
