KG BlogOctober brings in its wake not only a new month but a new and much needed season. As we welcome in crisp Autumn with her lovely shades and spirit, we nestle back to our roots. We take time to remember who we are, who we want to be, and why we are here. It is a season of reflection, a time to cherish those we love. We soften our hearts beneath the gentle kiss of fall, and find fresh strength in the promise that love conquers all. The presence of love melts fear and disarms hate; it creates unity, beauty and grace even in the darkest places. It is essential that we continuously and intentionally practice love over and over again – in our words, our actions, our thoughts, the way we see the world. It is preposterously simple, but impossibly difficult. And yet it is of the utmost necessity. Here are some of our favorite quotes on love:

Love is not just something that happens to you: it is a certain special way of being alive.
– Thomas Merton

Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.
– Rainer Maria Rilke

Never miss an opportunity to show your love.
– Paulo Coelho

Love, having no geography, knows no boundaries: weight and sink it deep, no matter, it will rise and find the surface.
– Truman Capote

Without warning as a whirlwind swoops on an oak love shakes my heart.
– Sappho

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
– Lao Tzu

Love must be learned, and learned again and again; there is no end to it.
– Katharine Ann Porter

Each night ask yourself... When did you withhold love when you might have given it?
– Marianne Williamson

Seek more opportunities to put more love in the world.
– Marianne Williamson 

There is love in holding... And there is love in letting go.
– Elizabeth Berg

Of all fires love is the only inexhaustible one. 
– Pablo Neruda

I have learned not to worry about love but to honor its coming with all my heart.
– Alice Walker

There isn't any secret formula or method. You learn love by loving. 
– Aldous Huxley

Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
– Rumi 

Loving can cost a lot, but not loving always costs more. 
– Merle Shain

There a hundred paths in the world that are easier than loving. But, who wants easier?
Mary Oliver
