Love is a universal language with no territory, a pure form of emotion that makes the heart smile without reason. Love makes people less judgmental and allows them to see the world with a new vision all over again.

Being in love is the most wonderful thing, while self-love allows a person to feel confident, happy and satisfied, and more attuned to loving another.

Here are some heartfelt and inspiring quotes about self-love and romance to help you express your feelings in the most unique way.
