Some short, beautiful love quotes include the William Blake quote “If a thing loves, it is infinite,” the Herman Hesse quote “If I know what love is, it is because of you,” and the John Updike quote “We are most alive when we’re in love.” Many famous love quotes also come from music, such as the music of the Beatles who said, “All you need is love.”
The short but beautiful quote by William Blake comes from his annotations to Swedenborg’s “Divine Love and Divine Wisdom” and represents annotation number 49 on page 604. The short and beautiful quote by Herman Hesse is from the German-Swiss author’s 1930 literary work “Narcissus and Goldmund,” which followed his famous literary work “Steppenwolf.” The short John Updike is one of many of his concerning love and relationships, though others deal with themes of infidelity and marriage.
The famous Beatles quote “All You Need Is Love” was originally written by John Lennon for the “Our World” broadcast during the so-called Summer of Love. This simple, short, yet strong message reinforces the limitless power of love and is one of the most quoted Beatles lyrics of all time. The song was also recorded as part of the Magical Mystery Tour album of 1967.
