Allen Klein is an award-winning professional speaker and bestselling author of The Courage to Laugh: Humor, Hope, and Healing in the Face of Death and Dying and many other books. In this inspirational and wide-ranging collection of quotations about love, he takes a subject that seems very overworked and leaky, and manages to pull together a commendable resource for writers and speakers of all stripes.

The quotes are divided into thematic sections on what is love, falling in love, first love, romantic love, loving couples, a mother's love, loving yourself, hugs and kisses, love conquers all, and unconditional love. Here you will find quotes from ancient and modern sources; philosophers, actors, and writers; the famous and little known creative souls.
