Cute Love Sayings - What Is Love?

“Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit."
~ Peter Ustinov (1921-2004)

"Love is not just a feeling. It's a choice. And love is most clearly displayed when it is the hardest for us to do so.

Thus, forgiveness is something that is crucial within any healthy and loving relationship. An attitude where one "chooses to forget" the other's failures, and loves and celebrates them blemishes and all.

So what do I think love is: love is unconditionally valuing another in thought, heart and deed."
