Lovable quotes by Louise L. Hay
#1. Attracting Love Love comes when we least expect it, when we are not looking for it. Hunting for love never brings the right partner. It only creates longing and unhappiness. Love is never outside ourselves; love is within us. Don't insist that love come immediately. Perhaps you are not ready for it, or you are not developed enough to attract the love you want. Don't settle for anybody just to have someone. Set your standards. What kind of love do you want to attract? List the qualities in yourself, and you will attract a person who has them. You might examine what may be keeping love away. Could it be criticism? Feelings of unworthiness? Unreasonable standards? Movie star images? Fear of intimacy? A belief that you are unlovable? Be ready for love when it does come. Prepare the field and be ready to nourish love. Be loving, and you will be lovable. Be open and receptive to love. #Quote by Louise L. Hay
Lovable quotes by J. Payne
#2. An intimate walk with the Lord also appears to have the following benefits in relation to other team members: It makes one lovable, it makes one trustworthy and reliable, and it provides an attitude of encouragement. #Quote by J. Payne
Lovable quotes by Brene Brown
#3. Above all else, I want you to know that you are loved and lovable. You will learn this from my words and actions--the lessons on love are in how I treat you and how I treat myself.

I want you to engage with the world from a place of worthiness. You will learn that you are worthy of love, belonging, and joy every time you see me practice self-compassion and embrace my own imperfections.

We will practice courage in our family by showing up, letting ourselves be seen, and honoring vulnerability. We will share our stories of struggle and strength. There will always be room in our home for both.

We will teach you compassion by practicing compassion with ourselves first; then with each other. We will set and respect boundaries; we will honor hard work, hope, and perseverance. Rest and play will be family values, as well as family practices.

You will learn accountability and respect by watching me make mistakes and make amends, and by watching how I ask for what I need and talk about how I feel.

I want you to know joy, so together we will practice gratitude.

I want you to feel joy, so together we will learn how to be vulnerable.

When uncertainty and scarcity visit, you will be able to draw from the spirit that is a part of our everyday life.

Together we will cry and face fear and grief. I will want to take away your pain, but instead I will sit with you and teach you how to feel it.

Lovable quotes by Helen Steiner Rice
#4. Precious and priceless, so lovable, too; The world's sweetest miracle, baby, is you. #Quote by Helen Steiner Rice
Lovable quotes by Erich Fromm
#5. Most people see the problem of love primarily as that of being loved , rather than that of loving , of one's capacity to love. Hence the problem to them is how to be loved, how to be lovable. In pursuit of this aim they follow several paths. One, which is especially used by men, is to be successful, to be as powerful and rich as the social margin of one's position permits. Another, used especially by women, is to make oneself attractive, by cultivating one's body, dress, etc ... Many of the ways to make oneself lovable are the same as those used to make oneself successful, to 'win friends and influence people'. As a matter of fact, what most people in our culture mean by being lovable is essentially a mixture between being popular and having sex appeal. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Lovable quotes by Brittany Burgunder
#6. If only you knew how beautiful you are unconditionally. Don't you know it's enough if all you do is breathe? #Quote by Brittany Burgunder
Lovable quotes by Cyril Connolly
#7. The English masses are lovable: they are kind, decent, tolerant, practical and not stupid. The tragedy is that they are too many of them, and that they are aimless, having outgrown the servile functions for which they were encouraged to multiply. One day these huge crowds will have to seize power because there will be nothing else for them to do, and yet they neither demand power nor are ready to make use of it; they will learn only to be bored in a new way. #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Lovable quotes by Gore Vidal
#8. I'm exactly as I appear. There is no warm, lovable person inside. Beneath my cold exterior, once you break the ice, you find cold water. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Lovable quotes by Dave Willis
#9. A strong marriage requires loving your spouse even in those moments when they aren't being lovable; it means believing in them even when they struggle to believe in themselves. #Quote by Dave Willis
Lovable quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#10. There is no way to genuinely, powerfully, truly love yourself while crafting a mask of perfection. I know, you know, we all know - it's hard to let your pimples and your flaws be seen. It's hard to stumble and bumble. It's hard to not know the right things to do or say. It's hard to not look like TV.

Sometimes, it's really hard for me to be the awkward mess that I am when I'm authentic, instead of having runway authenticity - all natural, but flawless. But every time I allow that to be okay, not just around myself but around others - I affirm something to myself. I affirm, to myself more than anyone else, that I am lovable and acceptable unconditionally. I affirm that it's okay to take on and take in all the flavours and hues of human experience, and not just the ones that are acceptable in this culture, in this time, in this place.

And that kind of acceptance, that kind of love - that's the kind of love that creates miracles. That's the kind of love I really need. That's the kind of love that makes approval taste like cardboard. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Lovable quotes by Josh Gad
#11. In real life, Josh [Gad] is a different kind of lovable idiot. In real life, he's a much filthier idiot. He has a dirty sense of humor. #Quote by Josh Gad
Lovable quotes by Douglas Davis
#12. The Sentence has no end. Sometimes I think it had no beginning. Now I salute its authors, which means all of us. You have made a wild, precious, awful, delicious, lovable, tragic, vulgar, fearsome, divine thing. #Quote by Douglas Davis
Lovable quotes by Miriam Polli
#13. You can't force someone to love you. All you can do is be lovable, then hope for the best". #Quote by Miriam Polli
Lovable quotes by Robert Galbraith
#14. It was nearly eight before he returned to the office. This was the hour when he found London most lovable; the working day over, her pub windows were warm and jewel-like, her streets thrummed with life, and the indefatigable permanence of her aged buildings, softened by the street lights, became strangely reassuring. We have seen plenty like you, they seemed to murmur soothingly, as he limped along Oxford Street carrying a boxed-up camp bed. Seven and a half million hearts were beating in close proximity in this heaving old city, and many, after all, would be aching far worse than his. Walking wearily past closing shops, while the heavens turned indigo above him, Strike found solace in vastness and anonymity. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Lovable quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#15. It all comes back to curiosity. We live in a society that objectifies us as sexual objects and status symbols. We learn to flatten ourselves and others into little words: good and bad, ugly and pretty, right and wrong, lovable and unlovable. Then, we try to discover who we are through these labels. It doesn't work. Because a human being is more than a signpost onto which we can plaster our judgments. A person is more than a sack of flesh to lose, keep, or throw away. A human being cannot be packaged into a stale idea. A person must be experienced to be known, and this knowledge ends the moment you stop looking. Each one of us is a mystery. And the more aware you become, the more mysterious it gets. The reward for seeking truth is not the truth itself. The gift is wonder. The gift is love. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Lovable quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#16. We so often in our lives serve as mirrors for one another. We look to others to find out if we ourselves are lovable; we look to others to find out if we are capable of feeling love; we look to others for a reflection of our innate radiance. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Lovable quotes by Susan D. Kalior
#17. You are lovable as you are. Be kind to yourself. You are an original standing alone, yet a collective that is everyone. Everyone is okay, including you. No one need change, but if you seek modification, require it from no other. If you change, those around you will change, as they are reflections of yourself. One person transforming, changes the world, even if only a sliver. #Quote by Susan D. Kalior
Lovable quotes by Louise Hart
#18. Self-esteem creates natural highs. Knowing that you're lovable helps you to love more. Knowing that you're important helps you to make a difference to to others. Knowing that you are capable empowers you to create more. Knowing that you're valuable and that you have a special place in the universe is a serene spiritual joy in itself. #Quote by Louise Hart
Lovable quotes by Demi Moore
#19. I would say what scares me is that I'm going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I'm really not lovable, that I'm not worthy of being loved. That there's something fundamentally wrong with me. #Quote by Demi Moore
Lovable quotes by Marquis De Sade
#20. The more defects a man may have, the older he is, the less lovable, the more resounding his success. #Quote by Marquis De Sade
Lovable quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#21. As she had once told Kathleen, sometimes one had to love something before it became lovable #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Lovable quotes by Robert Aris Willmott
#22. Many books belong to sunshine, and should be read out of doors. Clover, violets, and hedge roses breathe from their leaves; they are most lovable in cool lanes, along field paths, or upon stiles overhung by hawthorn, while the blackbird pipes, and the nightingale bathes its brown feathers in the twilight copse. #Quote by Robert Aris Willmott
Lovable quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#23. All the external adoration, respect and adulation in the word, can't drown out the internal voices that tell us, we are not good enough and unworthy of; happiness, love and an abundant life. When we need others to tell us were amazing, worthy and lovable, in order to feel good about ourselves, it is never enough. It goes into the bottomless pit where our inherent self-worth should be. It may feel like we are reaching out to receive love, but in actuality, we are seeking external noise to help drown out our negative core beliefs.
Love blossoms from the inside out. That is why it is so important to do the work necessary to heal our emotional wounds, to love ourselves and stand strong in who we are. Only then, are we truly free to give and receive love, unconditionally and in abundance. #Quote by Jaeda DeWalt
Lovable quotes by Charles Perrault
#24. I wish with all my heart that you may be the most lovable prince in the world, and I bestow my gift on you as much as I am able. #Quote by Charles Perrault
Lovable quotes by Marjorie, J. Thompson
#25. The first truth is the most basic affirmation of our faith: God loves us. This is not a general rule to which you, personally, may be an exception. It is not a conditional rule that applies only when you are good, pure, and lovable. God's passionate and personal love for each and every human being expresses who God is. Unfailing love is the divine nature and the divine choice in relation to us. God loves us with an overwhelming love that none of our sins can erase.While we can grieve and disappoint this love, nothing we do or fail to do can alter its depth or reality. It is a gift, a given.We cannot control whether God loves us by efforts to gain this love or even to lose it. Since we neither deserve nor earn such love, God's fondest dream is that we will receive and respond to it. #Quote by Marjorie, J. Thompson
Lovable quotes by Foundation For Inner Peace
#26. You are the work of God, and His work is wholly lovable and wholly loving. This is how a man must think of himself in his heart, because this is what he is. #Quote by Foundation For Inner Peace
Lovable quotes by Alfa Holden
#27. I've never met anyone who loves in the same way. But that's the beauty of finding the heart meant for yours. The right love will accept the 'not so lovable' parts of you too. #Quote by Alfa Holden
Lovable quotes by Debbie Ford
#28. Maybe you've decided you're not a genius, that you're not brilliant, that you're not prosperous, that you're not wonderful, that you're not lovable. Well, you know what? You're both: you're unlovable and you are lovable. And they both need equal time. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Lovable quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#29. But I still feel like I lost.
We all have the potential to fall in love a thousand times in our lifetime. It's easy. The first girl I ever loved was someone I knew in the sixth grade. Her name was Missy; we talked about horses. The last girl I love will be someone I haven't even met yet. probably. They all count. But there are certain people you love who do something else; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you'll meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years. But there's still one more tier to all this; there is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it always happens eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of those lovable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. You will remember having conversations with this person that never actually happened. You will recall sexual trysts with this person that never technically occurred. This is because the individual who embodies your personal definition of love does not really exist. The person is real, and the feelings are real-but you create the context. And context is everything. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else, and they're often just the person you happen to meet first time you really, really want to love someo #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Lovable quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#30. You need not get at it, for you are it. It will get at you, if you give it a chance. Let go your attachment to the unreal and the real will swiftly and smoothly step into its own. Stop imagining yourself being or doing this or that and the realization that you are the source and heart of all will dawn upon you. With this will come great love which is not choice or predilection, nor attachment, but a power which makes all things love-worthy and lovable. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Lovable quotes by Carrie Jones
#31. A pixie's true skin color is blue. Cookie Monster, Grover, and other lovable Muppets are also blue. Do not confuse the two. Muppets don't kill you. Usually. #Quote by Carrie Jones
Lovable quotes by Happy Goddessa
#32. You are more important than you think you are, you are braver, you are more lovable and smarter than you think you are. Upgrade what you think! #Quote by Happy Goddessa
Lovable quotes by Jennifer Aniston
#33. I've gone for each type: the rough guy; the nerdy, sweet, lovable guy; and the slick guy. I don't really have a type. Men in general are a good thing. #Quote by Jennifer Aniston
Lovable quotes by Stendhal
#34. There is nothing so beautiful, lovable and moving as the English countryside. #Quote by Stendhal
Lovable quotes by Deon Potgieter
#35. Be the good, kind, lovable person you want to see in the world. Every action counts and the more people who behave and act with love and caring the more the world becomes a better place. We can do this! #Quote by Deon Potgieter
Lovable quotes by Cassandra Clare
#36. There is more to someone being lovable than the way they look. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Lovable quotes by Brene Brown
#37. I see the fear of never feeling extraordinary enough to be noticed, to be lovable, to belong, or to cultivate a sense of purpose. Sometimes the simple act of humanizing problems sheds an important light on them, a light that often goes out the minute a stigmatizing label is applied. #Quote by Brene Brown
Lovable quotes by Gene Healy
#38. Yet, despite the snappy repartee and often-witty scripts, West Wing was a remarkably silly program. Has there ever been a group of real White House staffers as admirable and lovable as the West Wing ensemble, that selfless, high-minded, public-spirited, fundamentally decent pack of . . . political operators? Sorkin's White House existed in a Bizarro World where the Oval Office is apparently devoid of office politics. Fans of the show never saw the sort of infighting, backstabbing, and jockeying for position that appear in real-world accounts of White House life, like George Reedy's Twilight of the Presidency and John Dean's Blind Ambition. #Quote by Gene Healy
Lovable quotes by Josef Pieper
#39. Who among us has not suddenly looked into his child's face, in the midst of the toils and troubles of everyday life, and at that moment "seen" that everything which is good, is loved and lovable, loved by God! Such certainties all mean, at bottom, one and the same thing: that the world is plumb and sound; that everything comes to its appointed goal; that in spite of all appearances, underlying all things is - peace, salvation, gloria; that nothing and no one is lost; that "God holds in his hand the beginning, middle, and end of all that is." Such nonrational, intuitive certainties of the divine base of all that is can be vouchsafed to our gaze even when it is turned toward the most insignificant-looking things, if only it is a gaze inspired by love. That, in the precise sense, is contemplation...

Out of this kind of contemplation of the created world arise in never-ending wealth all true poetry and all real art, for it is the nature of poetry and art to be paean and praise heard above all the wails of lamentation. No one who is not capable of such contemplation can grasp poetry in a poetic fashion, that is to say, in the only meaningful fashion. The indispensability, the vital function of the arts in man's life, consists above all in this: that through them contemplation of the created world is kept alive and active. #Quote by Josef Pieper
Lovable quotes by Ovid
#40. If you would be loved, be lovable #Quote by Ovid
Lovable quotes by Yip Harburg
#41. Ira [Gershwin] was the shyest, most diffident boy we had ever known. In a class of Lower East Side rapscallions, his soft-spoken gentleness and low-keyed personality made him a lovable incongruity. He spoke in murmurs, hiding behind a pair of steel-rimmed spectacles. Ira had a kid brother who wore stiff high collars, shirts with cuffs and went out with girls. #Quote by Yip Harburg
Lovable quotes by Paul Tournier
#42. At the heart of personality is the need to feel a sense of being lovable without having to qualify for that acceptance. #Quote by Paul Tournier
Lovable quotes by Susan Sontag
#43. Self-respect. It would make me lovable. And it's the secret to good sex. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Lovable quotes by Brene Brown
#44. When I look at narcissism through the vulnerability lens, I see the shame-based fear of being ordinary. I see the fear of never feeling extraordinary enough to be noticed, to be lovable, to belong, or to cultivate a sense of purpose. #Quote by Brene Brown
Lovable quotes by Luffina Lourduraj
#45. The sweetest people have endured the greatest pain, which made them so lovable #Quote by Luffina Lourduraj
Lovable quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#46. Look at your heart! It tells the story of why you were made. It is not perfect in shape and contour, like a Valentine Heart. There seems to be a small piece missing out of the side of every human heart. That may be to symbolize a piece that was torn out of the Heart of Christ which embraced all humanity on the Cross. But I think the real meaning is that when God made your human heart, He found it so good and so lovable that He kept a small sample of it in heaven. He sent the rest of it into this world to enjoy His gifts, and to use them as stepping stones back to Him, but to be ever mindful that you can never love anything in this world with your whole heart because you have not a whole heart with which to love. In order to love anyone with your whole heart, in order to be really peaceful, in order to be really wholehearted, you must go back again to God to recover the piece He has been keeping for #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Lovable quotes by Jen Wilkin
#47. No longer can we parse our fellow humans into the categories of 'lovable' and 'unlovable.' If love is an act of the will - not motivated by need, not measuring worth, not requiring reciprocity - then there is no such category as 'unlovable. #Quote by Jen Wilkin
Lovable quotes by Jarod Kintz
#48. Theo named his son Theology. But his son changed it to The O to honor his dad, Orafoura. Orafoura is my dad, he is my son, and we love to love people who are lovable. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Lovable quotes by Ash Gray
#49. I've always felt as if writing a novel is like giving birth. After the process is over, I am emotionally exhausted. But then the work's not done. I have to then raise the book to adulthood, through marketing and giveaways and pandhandling for reviews (its college education). And even while I'm nurturing it into something that is well adjusted and lovable, I've got other "kids" that need equal attention. It truly is work. My hat is off to real parents everywhere, who raise human children and novel ones at the same time. You are amazing. #Quote by Ash Gray
Lovable quotes by Stephen Lovegrove
#50. The good news is, shame has a kryptonite. Shame cannot survive under the power of love. Love defeats shame, every time.

Love says that no matter what you did which may have caused guilt, you are loved. You are lovable. You are love itself. That is the truth. And because of that, you have nothing to be ashamed of. #Quote by Stephen Lovegrove
Lovable quotes by Melody Beattie
#51. Today I will tell myself that I'm lovable. Just because some people haven't been able to love me in ways that worked doesn't mean that I'm unlovable. I've had lessons to learn, and some of them have hurt deeply, but I can still love, and I still am loved. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Lovable quotes by Deb Caletti
#52. That's what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you're not so lovable. #Quote by Deb Caletti
Lovable quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#53. You're familiar with the old written law, 'Love your friend,' and its unwritten companion, 'Hate your enemy.' I'm challenging that. I'm telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. This is what God does. He gives his best - the sun to warm and the rain to nourish - to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty. If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that. 48 "In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and graciously toward others, the way God lives toward you." THE WORLD IS NOT A STAGE #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Lovable quotes by Anne Sexton
#54. In a letter (no matter how quickly it is written or honestly or freely or lovingly) it is more possible to be loving and lovable, more possible to reach out and to take in ... I feel I have somehow deceived you into thinking this is really a human relationship. It is a letter relationship between humans ... #Quote by Anne Sexton
Lovable quotes by Judith Crist
#55. The one and original lovable monster is lost amid all the hydraulic manipulations in what now emerges as the story of a dumb blonde who falls for a huge plastic finger. #Quote by Judith Crist
Lovable quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#56. I don't consider myself an offensive guy. I am just a harmless lovable little fuzzball. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Lovable quotes by Martha Beck
#57. You are lovable. Can you show me any baby in any nursery who isn't priceless? No. There's no such thing as a worthless newborn. And the essential value that was born into brand-new-baby you can never be extinguished. This means that even if you think you're being absolutely honest, believing yourself to be anything other than astonishing, incomparable, and infinitely precious makes you a habitual liar. #Quote by Martha Beck
Lovable quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#58. There isn't any devil in a good dog. That's why they're more lovable than cats, I reckon. But I'm darned if they're as interesting. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Lovable quotes by Elif Batuman
#59. I couldn't imagine viewing Bill's presence on Earth as any kind of a miracle, but wasn't that itself the miracle - that love really was an obscure and unfathomable connection between individuals, and not an economic contest where everyone was matched up according to how quantifiably lovable they were? #Quote by Elif Batuman
Lovable quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#60. There's no doubt about it, being a policeman warps a man's mind and ruins that sunny faith in his fellow human beings which is the foundation of a lovable character. There seems to be no way of avoiding this. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Lovable quotes by Soman Chainani
#61. Either you're lying again or you're as stupid as you look. You ditch me first year for him when you were a girl. You ditch me second year for him when you were a boy. You lie and cheat and steal for him while he treats you like crap, and I help you and care for you and worship you like a queen while you treat me like crap! What does that guy have that I don't? What makes him so lovable and me so unworthy? Know how many times I've asked myself that question, Sophie? How many times I've studied him like a book or sat in the dark picturing every last shred of him, trying to understand why he's more of a person than me? Or why the moment he's gone, you take a ring from the School Master - or Raphael or Michelangelo or Donatello or whatever you want to call him to make yourself feel better - just because he looks like you want him to look and says what you want to hear? When you could have had someone who's honest and kind and real? #Quote by Soman Chainani
Lovable quotes by James Jeans
#62. The really happy person is the one who can enjoy the scenery, even when they have to take a detour.[make the best of what is necessary ... if you can't have what you love, love what you have ... as there are lovable or at least positive aspects in everything, because anything could be worse] #Quote by James Jeans
Lovable quotes by Elena Ferrante
#63. Someone who takes love away from us devastates the cultural structure we've worked on all our lives, deprives us of that sort of Eden that until that moment had made us appear innocent and lovable. Human beings give the worst of themselves when their cultural clothes are torn off, and they find themselves facing the nakedness of their bodies, they feel the shame of them. In a certain sense the loss of love is the common experience closest to the myth of the expulsion from the earthly paradise: it's the violent end of the illusion of having a heavenly body, it's the discovery of one's own dispensability and perishability. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Lovable quotes by C.S. Lewis
#64. He (God) loved us not because we are lovable, but because He is love. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Lovable quotes by Oscar Wilde
#65. He is witty, graceful, lovely to look at, lovable to be with. He has also ruined my life, so I can't help loving him -- it is the only thing to do. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Lovable quotes by Les Paul
#66. Now I need to take a piece of wood and make it sound like the railroad track, but I also had to make it beautiful and lovable so that a person playing it would think of it in terms of his mistress, a bartender, his wife, a good psychiatrist - whatever. #Quote by Les Paul
Lovable quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#67. I was taught when I was young that if people would only love one another, all would be well with the world. I found when I tried to put that into practice, not only were other people seldom lovable but I wasn't very lovable myself. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Lovable quotes by Robert Boswell
#68. Americans were no more shallow than any other people, just more pampered, so they had come to treasure their shallowness, making pop singers and television actors their most revered leaders. Pampered but lovable. He loved America, even though he held it in contempt. Love and contempt were not incompatible. In fact, one was rarely found without the other. #Quote by Robert Boswell
Lovable quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#69. Authors also create lovable, friendly characters, then proceed to do terrible things to them, like throw them in unsightly librarian-controlled dungeons. This makes readers feel hurt and worried for the characters. The simple truth is that authors like making people squirm. If this weren't the case, all novels would be filled completely with cute bunnies having birthday parties. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Lovable quotes by Jerome Lawrence
#70. Cynical? Thats my fascination. I do hateful things, for which people love me, And lovable things for which they hate me. I am a friend of enemies, the enemy of friends; I am admired for my detestability. I am both Poles and the Equator, with no Temperate Zones between. #Quote by Jerome Lawrence
Lovable quotes by C.S. Lewis
#71. There are two kinds of love: we love wise and kind and beautiful people because we need them, but we love (or try to love) stupid and disagreeable people because they need us. This second kind is the more divine because that is how God loves us: not because we are lovable but because He is love, not because He needs to receive but He delights to give. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Lovable quotes by Sarah Mayberry
#72. She drew back from his embrace so she could look into his eyes, her own swimming with tears. The uncertainty in her face nearly killed him. She had no idea how lovable she was. How precious and brave and special. #Quote by Sarah Mayberry
Lovable quotes by Nisargadatta Maharaj
#73. Truth is simple and available to all: why do you complicate? Truth is loving and lovable. It includes all, accepts all, purifies all.

It is untruth that is difficult and a source of trouble. It always wants, expects, demands. Being false, it is empty, always in search of confirmation and reassurance. It is afraid of and avoids inquiry. It identifies itself with any support, however weak and momentary. Whatever it gets, it loses and asks for more. #Quote by Nisargadatta Maharaj
Lovable quotes by Rachel Heffington
#74. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate the fact that there has never been and probably will never be another actress as thoroughly lovable as Audrey Hepburn. #Quote by Rachel Heffington
Lovable quotes by Robin A.H. Waterfield
#75. If I am in love, many things about the world, not just the immediate object of my love, seem lovable. To say 'I love X' is somehow really to say 'X inspires love in me', and that love then attaches itself to objects other than X as well. The expansiveness of love is a natural means of ascent between levels. #Quote by Robin A.H. Waterfield
Lovable quotes by Daniel Ionson
#76. How does evil arise? Where does it come from? We think of malevolent men- - murderers, rapists, tyrants - and somehow believe they are different creatures from us. They are not. All evil men were once innocent babes, once lovable children. Men make choices, some consistently bad. But those who choose the worst kinds of evil were typically guided into it. #Quote by Daniel Ionson
Lovable quotes by Sarah Vowell
#77. I adore these words, worship them actually, and yet I do not buy that part about 'the last time in history.' Because the narrator himself is having such a wondrous moment; because every American who comes to love this lovable, hateful place knows this wonder, too. Because screeching the brakes on my rental bike and watching a turtle that is who knows how old creep across the wilderness of palm fronds that juts against such a painfully cute subset of civilization, I know exactly why the painfully cute civilization wants to be here, build here, make their homes and babies at such a place. So what if they got it wrong? Is there anything more American than constructing some squeaky-clean city on a hill looking out across the terrible beauty of this land? While most of the rest of us have internalized these impulses, turned them into metaphors, at Celebration, Disney is attempting the real deal; like the Puritans and the pioneers, they're carving out a new community. An eerie, xenophobic, nostalgic community I can't wait to leave, but still. #Quote by Sarah Vowell
Lovable quotes by Leanne Banks
#78. At some point you have to love in order to be lovable. #Quote by Leanne Banks
Lovable quotes by Alexander Pushkin
#79. Whom then to love? Whom to have faith in?
Who can there be who won't betray?
Who'll judge a deed or disputation
Obligingly by what we say?
Who'll not bestrew our path with slander?
Who'll cosset us with care and candour?
Oh, ineffectual phantom seeker
You waste your energy in vain:
Love your own self, be your own man,
My worthy, venerable reader!
A worthwhile object: surely who
Could be more lovable than you? #Quote by Alexander Pushkin
Lovable quotes by Bonnie Badenoch
#80. We are never too old or too wounded to receive healing waves of the personal delight of another.

... at its best, it transcends being delighted with a particular happening and is instead the reflection to us, and often to one another, of an enduring bond that is bigger than any single occurrence between us.

When we are small and see that look on our parents faces, there is such an affirmation that we are good, lovable, welcome.

These experiences go deep into us and become an implicit foundation for drawing in warm companions throughout our lives. #Quote by Bonnie Badenoch
Lovable quotes by Molly Ringle
#81. Everything about him was turning out to be so much more accessible than she had thought. Spark by spark, the fire of the lofty star was going out, revealing a warm and completely lovable earthling under its glare. #Quote by Molly Ringle
Lovable quotes by Alexandra Horowitz
#82. Many people's expectations, at least in this country, are fairly similar: be friendly, loyal, pettable; find me charming and lovable - but know that I am in charge; do not pee in the house; do not jump on guests; do not chew my dress shoes; do not get into the trash. Somehow, word hasn't gotten to the dogs. #Quote by Alexandra Horowitz
Lovable quotes by Christine Quinn
#83. I hope there is nothing about me that people have a big problem with. You know, I like to think of myself as lovable. #Quote by Christine Quinn
Lovable quotes by Elizabeth Strout
#84. That day of the parade in the Village, I think--but I'm not sure--that William and I had a fight. Because I remember him saying, "Button, you just don't get it, do you?" He meant I did not understand that I could be loved, was lovable. Very often he said that when we had a fight. He was the only man to call me "Button." But he was not the last to say the other: You just don't get it, do you? #Quote by Elizabeth Strout
Lovable quotes by Blaise Pascal
#85. In a word, the Self has two qualities: it is unjust in itself since it makes itself the centre of everything; it is inconvenient to others since it would enslave them; for each self is the enemy, and would like to be the tyrant of all others. You take away its inconvenience, but not its injustice, and so you do not render it lovable to those who hate injustice; you render it lovable only to the unjust, who do not any longer find in it an enemy. And thus you remain unjust, and can please only the unjust #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Lovable quotes by Zadie Smith
#86. It's a funny thing about the modern world. You hear girls in the toilets of clubs saying, "Yeah, he fucked off and left me. He didn't love me. He just couldn't deal with love. He was too fucked up to know how to love me." Now, how did that happen? What was it about this unlovable century that convinced us we were, despite everything, eminently lovable as a people, as a species? What made us think that anyone who fails to love us is damaged, lacking, malfunctioning in some way? And particularly if they replace us with a god, or a weeping madonna, or the face of Christ in a ciabatta roll
then we call them crazy. Deluded. Regressive. We are so convinced of the goodness of ourselves, and the goodness of our love, we cannot bear to believe that there might be something more worthy of love than us, more worthy of worship. Greeting cards routinely tell us everybody deserves love. No. Everybody deserves clean water. Not everybody deserves love all the time. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Lovable quotes by Basil Bunting
#87. I hate Science. It denies a man's responsibility for his own deeds, abolishes the brotherhood that springs from God's fatherhood. It is a hectoring, dictating expertise, which makes the least lovable of the Church Fathers seem liberal by contrast. #Quote by Basil Bunting
Lovable quotes by Alphonse De Lamartine
#88. It is the qualities of the heart, not those of the face, that should attract us in women, because the former are durable, the latter transitory. So lovable women, like roses, retain their sweetness long after they have lost their beauty. #Quote by Alphonse De Lamartine
Lovable quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#89. He was lovable the way a child is lovable, and he was capable of returning love with a childlike purity. If love is nevertheless excluded from his work, it's because he never quite felt that he deserved to receive it. He was a lifelong prisoner on the island of himself. What looked like gentle contours from a distance were in fact sheer cliffs. Sometimes only a little of him was crazy, sometimes nearly all of him, but, as an adult, he was never entirely not crazy. What he'd seen of his id while trying to escape his island prison by way of drugs and alcohol, only to find himself even more imprisoned by addiction, seems never to have ceased to be corrosive of his belief in his lovability. Even after he got clean, even decades after his late-adolescent suicide attempt, even after his slow and heroic construction of a life for himself, he felt undeserving. And this feeling was intertwined, ultimately to the point of indistinguishability, with the thought of suicide, which was the one sure way out of his imprisonment; surer than addiction, surer than fiction, and surer, finally, than love. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Lovable quotes by Liane Moriarty
#90. I mean a fat, ugly man can still be funny and lovable and successful," continued Jane. "But it's like it's the most shameful thing for a woman to be." "But you weren't, you're not - " began Madeline. "Yes, OK, but so what if I was!" interrupted Jane. "What if I was! That's my point. What if I was a bit overweight and not especially pretty? Why is that so terrible? So disgusting? Why is that the end of the world? #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Lovable quotes by Nelson Jack
#91. Imperfects are funny, lovable and perfect to be happy. Perfects are appreciated and left alone everytime!!!. #Quote by Nelson Jack
Lovable quotes by Marissa Meyer
#92. You should hate me. I'm an idiot. I made a mistake."
"You may be an idiot, but I assure you, you're quite a lovable one. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Lovable quotes by Nicholas Evans
#93. Maybe that's nature's way. Making people you once loved less lovable, so that it won't be so hard when they go. #Quote by Nicholas Evans
Lovable quotes by Gina Lake
#94. Essence loves whatever is happening because it either created it or allowed you (your ego) to create it for your growth and evolution. What you learn to love about whatever you are experiencing is not how it makes you feel, but how perfectly it is suited to support your evolution toward greater love, wisdom, compassion, courage, patience, and understanding. Life is perfectly designed to evolve us, and that is what is lovable about every moment. #Quote by Gina Lake
Lovable quotes by Julie Kavner
#95. I was brought up not to be selfish or self-centered. So if you play somebody who isn't so lovable, you can play that person and no one will turn on you. I don't want to play that person in real life. Because then people won't like me so much. #Quote by Julie Kavner
Lovable quotes by Rajneesh
#96. Attachment is misery, but from the very beginning the child is taught for attachment. The mother will say to the child, "Love me; I am your mother." The father will say, "Love me; I am your father" - as if someone is a father or a mother so he becomes automatically lovable. #Quote by Rajneesh
Lovable quotes by Avina Celeste
#97. I love myself. Can you say those words without your mind finding reasons why it is not true? Whatever your mind may be saying about what is wrong with you, remember that you are lovable. Everyone has flaws, that is undeniable, but we can choose to see past our flaws and see the beauty that we each hold inside of us. #Quote by Avina Celeste
Lovable quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#98. Detachment is a rare virtue, and very few people find it lovable, either in themselves or in others. If you ever find a person who likes you in spite of it-still more, because of it-that liking has very great value, because it is perfectly sincere, and because, with that person, you will never need to be anything but sincere yourself. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Lovable quotes by Gertrude Jekyll
#99. There is a lovable quality about the actual tools. One feels so kindly to the thing that enables the hand to obey the brain. Moreover, one feels a good deal of respect for it; without it the brain and the hand would be helpless. #Quote by Gertrude Jekyll
Lovable quotes by Elizabeth Hoyt
#100. Lazarus had never thought of himself as lovable. Therefore it should come as no shock at all that Temperance did not, in fact, love him. No, not a shock ... but it would have been nice had she had some small feeling for him.
Lazarus pondered his own sickening craving as he guided his black gelding through the London morning throng the day after he'd walked out on Temperance. It appeared that his own nascent emotions had provoked a new desire as well: the urge to be loved. How banal. And yet, banal or not, he could not change the way his heart felt.
A corner of his mouth quirked up humorlessly. It seemed he must be like other men after all. #Quote by Elizabeth Hoyt
Lovable quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#101. In short, one who loves the illusion of the good is eventually won over to actually loving the good. But how can love of the illusion of the good lead to love of the good itself? If one loves the illusion of the good and enacts this illusion in social intercourse, one might come to appreciate its worth and to love the good itself for its own sake. Correlatively, from the point of view of the spectator, loving the illusion of the good in others may make us act politely in order to become lovable, which leads us to exercise our self-mastery, control our passions, and, eventually, to love the good for its own sake. In this sense, paradoxically, by deceiving others through politeness and social pretence, we in fact deceive ourselves and transform our pragmatic, polite behavior into virtuous behavior: by deceiving others through the pretence of virtue, we foster civil society, and in doing so, deceive ourselves by transforming our pretense of virtue into a disposition for virtue itself. Does not this line of thought recall Pascal's advice to non-believers who would like to believe, but cannot bring themselves to accomplish the leap of faith? "Kneel down, pray, act as if you believe, and belief will come by itself. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Lovable quotes by Julia Cameron
O Great Creator,
We are gathered together in your name
That we may be of greater service to you
And to our fellows.
We offer ourselves to you as instruments.
We open ourselves to your creativity in our lives.
We surrender to you our old ideas.
We welcome your new and more expansive ideas.
We trust that you will lead us.
We trust that it is safe to follow you.
We know you created us and that creativity
Is your nature and our own.
We ask you to unfold our lives
According to your plan, not our low self-worth.
Help us to believe that it is not too late
And that we are not too small or too flawed
To be healed -
By you and through each other - and made whole.
Help us to love one another,
To nurture each other's unfolding,
To encourage each other's growth,
And understand each other's fears.
Help us to know that we are not alone,
That we are loved and lovable.
Help us to create as an act of worship to you. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Lovable quotes by Ndamukong Suh
#103. Defensive players kind of have that two-faced kind of way of being able to be very aggressive on the football field and going out there and getting there job done. At the same time, from my own incidents and my own personality, I'm much a person that's very likable and lovable. #Quote by Ndamukong Suh
Lovable quotes by J.M. Barrie
#104. One could mention many lovable traits in Smee. For instance, after killing, it was his spectacles he wiped instead of his weapon. #Quote by J.M. Barrie
Lovable quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
#105. TOLERANCE Neither accept people as they are nor tolerate them. Many people think tolerance is a virtue but tolerance is actually a negative term. If you like something, you do not have to tolerate it. Tolerance indicates a deep sense of dislike that can at any time turn into hatred. It indicates a sense of separateness, small-mindedness, a limitation of consciousness. When you tolerate, it is a temporary state. Tolerance is a potential volcano. If you are tolerating, it means you are just holding on. Acceptance is also negative. You accept that which is not lovable. Tolerance and acceptance come with judgment and separation. Question: "But aren't we supposed to accept people as they are?" If you do not love them, then you have to accept them. I tell you, do not accept people as they are. Just love them as they are. #Quote by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Lovable quotes by Tara Brach
#106. Most of us need to be reminded that we are good, that we are lovable, that we belong. If we knew just how powerfully our thoughts, words, and actions affected the hearts of those around us, we'd reach out and join hands again and again. Our relationships have the potential to be a sacred refuge, a place of healing and awakening. With each person we meet, we can learn to look behind the mask and see the one who longs to love and be loved. #Quote by Tara Brach

Lovable quotes by Neil Pasricha
#108. Our pals over at Wikipedia make hair sounds like the sun of fresh water, saying in their snooty tone that head hair has "gained an important significance in nearly all present societies as well as any given historical period throughout the world". But then again, those lovable eggheads can make anything sound pretty serious. #Quote by Neil Pasricha

Lovable quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#111. The truth is that nothing between Patty and Richard was ever going to last, because they couldn't help being disappointments to each other, because neither was as lovable to the other as Walter was to both of them. Every time Patty lay by herself after sex, she sank down into sadness and loneliness, because Richard was always going to be Richard, whereas with Walter, there had always been the possibility, however faint, and however slow in its realization, that their story would change and deepen. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Lovable quotes by M.F. Moonzajer

Lovable quotes by Jane Monica-Jones
#113. Ironically, when we own the shadow aspects of our self and put down our masks - this is when we become truly lovable. #Quote by Jane Monica-Jones
Lovable quotes by Aishah Madadiy
#114. How do you like to be remembered? Me, I would like to be remembered like an elusive good book that does not appear lovable to everyone, gets underrated at times, yet never loses its rarity to inspire, whenever one comes down to the verge of despair, and that functions like ember, forgotten, but when the weather goes cold, one suddenly remembers to reignite it for warmth and comfort. #Quote by Aishah Madadiy
Lovable quotes by Edward Lear
#115. One finds that constant quiet sympathy is not only one of the most lovable qualities, but one of the very rarest. #Quote by Edward Lear
Lovable quotes by Scott Stabile
#116. As you go through your list of things to do for the day, make sure to remind yourself that you are a cool, hot, unique and wonderful human being, as loving as you are lovable, and that your place in this world makes many, many, many people smile. In short, you rock! #Quote by Scott Stabile
Lovable quotes by Frank Herbert
#117. People aren't concerned with love; it's too disordered. They prefer despotism. Too much freedom breeds chaos. We can't have that, can we? And how do you make despotism lovable? #Quote by Frank Herbert

#118. Why is anyone lovable - if it be not that God put His love into each of us? #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Lovable quotes by L.J. Shen
#119. I love you," she whispered. "I love you so much that I hated you for a while. And now that I know that you are damaged, I love you even more. Perfect things are not relatable. Unbreakable is fascinating, but not lovable. You're breakable, Dean Cole. I'm going to do my best to keep you whole. #Quote by L.J. Shen
Lovable quotes by Jill Shalvis
#120. You promise not to fall for me," she said seriously. "No matter how lovable I am?"
He wanted to smile at that but didn't want her to think he was making fun. She wanted his word, and he could give it easily enough, confident that as adorably sexy as she was, he could refrain from falling for her, since his heart felt dead in his chest. "I promise. #Quote by Jill Shalvis
Lovable quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#121. Canadian researchers found those with low self-esteem actually felt worse after repeating positive statements about themselves. They said phrases such as "I am a lovable person" only helped people with high self-esteem. The study appeared in the journal Psychological Science. ... They found that, paradoxically, those with low self-esteem were in a better mood when they were allowed to have negative thoughts than when they were asked to focus exclusively on affirmative thoughts. ... Repeating positive self-statements may benefit certain people, such as individuals with high self-esteem, but backfire for the very people who need them the most. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs

#123. We are far more than our bodies and personalities. The inner spirit is always beautiful and lovable, no matter how our outer appearances may change. #Quote by Louise Hay
Lovable quotes by Donald Miller
#124. To be in a relationship with God is to be loved purely and furiously. And a person who thinks himself unlovable cannot be in a relationship with God because he can't accept who God is; a Being that is love. We learn that we are lovable or unlovable from other people ... That is why God tells us so many times to love each other. #Quote by Donald Miller
Lovable quotes by Pat Conroy

#126. I'm sure a lot of it is my fault," he said. He smiled ruefully. "And by a lot, I mean all."
"Ah, the self-deprecating dude routine," Hannah said. " 'What a lovable fuck-up I am.' The annoying thing is that it makes you look good, but it doesn't get me anything. #Quote by Adelle Waldman

#131. Love is too weak a word for what I feel - I luuurve you, you know, I loave you, I luff you, two F's, yes. #Quote by Woody Allen
Lovable quotes by Alain De Botton
#132. There is usually a Marxist moment in every relationship, the moment when it becomes clear that love is reciprocated. The way it is resolved depends on the balance between self-love and self-hatred. If self-hatred gains the upper hand, then the one who has received love will declare that the beloved (on some excuse or other) is not good enough for them (not good enough by virtue of associating with no-goods). But if self-love gains the upper hand, both partners may accept that seeing their love reciprocated is not proof of how low the beloved is, but of how lovable they have themselves turned out to be. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Lovable quotes by Malliga Chebli-Saadi
#133. The heart become weight if no one bring or get a lovable feelings. #Quote by Malliga Chebli-Saadi
Lovable quotes by Elsa Morante
#134. In his endless journeys of exploration, crawling on all fours around the Urals and the Amazon and the Australian archipelagos which the furniture of the house was to him, sometimes he no longer knew where he was. And he would be found under the sink in the kitchen, ecstatically observing a patrol of cockroaches as if they were wild colts on the prairie. He even recognized a ttar in a gob of spit.
But nothing had the power to make him rejoice as much as Nino's presence. It seemed that, in his opinion, Nino concentrated in himself the total festivity of the world, which everywhere else was to be found scattered and divided. For in Giuseppe's eyes, Nino represented by himself all the myriad colors, and the glow of fireworks, and every species of fantastic and lovable animal, and carnival shows. Mysteriously, he could sense Nino's arrival from the moment when he began the ascent of the stairs! And he would hurry immediately, as fast as he could with his method, toward the entrance, repeating ino ino, in an almost dramatic rejoicing of all his limbs. At times, even, when Nino came home late at night, he, sleeping, would stir slightly at the sound of the key, and with a trusting little smile he would murmur in a faint voice: Ino. #Quote by Elsa Morante
Lovable quotes by Tara Brach
#135. When radical acceptance blossoms in our relationships, it becomes a kind of spiritual re-parenting that enables us to trust the goodness and beauty of who we really are. Just as good parenting mirrors back to a child that they are lovable, when we understand and accept others, we affirm their intrinsic worth and belonging. To receive this kind of Radical Acceptance can transform our lives. #Quote by Tara Brach
Lovable quotes by Sonia Choquette
#136. People frustrate us and let us down. Not because we aren't lovable, but because we rely on them to do our job of loving us. We must accept that our lovability and worth doesn't come from others. It comes from within. #Quote by Sonia Choquette
Lovable quotes by Hermann Hesse
#137. Though he was near perfection and was bearing his final wound, it still seemed to him as if those childlike people were his brothers, their vanities, desires for possession, and ridiculous aspects were no longer ridiculous to him, became understandable, became lovable, even became worthy of veneration to him. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Lovable quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#138. We try so hard to make ourselves lovable, and yet each layer of this mask puts another wall around us – a wall that keeps love out. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Lovable quotes by Frank Oz
#139. Hope and Crosby made seven 'Road' movies, starting in 1940 with 'Road to Singapore.' The movies were always about Crosby and Hope fleeing America and finding Dorothy Lamour in some exotic location. Bob's character was cocky and cowardly; Bing's character was smooth and unruffled. They were great characters - lousy, lovable guys. #Quote by Frank Oz
Lovable quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#140. Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary and yet somehow lovable. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Lovable quotes by Jack Paar
#141. I'm complicated, sentimental, lovable, honest, loyal, decent, generous, likable, and lonely. My personality is not split; it's shredded. #Quote by Jack Paar
Lovable quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#142. I had no illusions about you,' he said. 'I knew you were silly and frivolous and empty-headed. But I loved you. I knew that your aims and ideals were vulgar and commonplace. But I loved you. I knew that you were second-rate. But I loved you. It's comic when I think how hard I tried to be amused by the things that amused you and how anxious I was to hide from you that I wasn't ignorant and vulgar and scandal-mongering and stupid. I knew how frightened you were of intelligence and I did everything I could to make you think me as big a fool as the rest of the men you knew. I knew that you'd only married me for convenience. I loved you so much, I didn't care. Most people, as far as I can see, when they're in love with someone and the love isn't returned feel that they have a grievance. They grow angry and bitter. I wasn't like that. I never expected you to love me, I didn't see any reason that you should. I never thought myself very lovable. I was thankful to be allowed to love you and I was enraptured when now and then I thought you were pleased with me or when I noticed in your eyes a gleam of good-humored affection. I tried not to bore you with my love; I knew I couldn't afford to do that and I was always on the lookout for the first sign that you were impatient with my affection. What most husbands expect as a right I was prepared to receive as a favor. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Lovable quotes by Eileen Myles
#143. Older men get lovable, and older women get monstrous. #Quote by Eileen Myles
Lovable quotes by Nisargadatta Maharaj
#144. Truth is loving and lovable. It includes all, accepts all, purifies all.
It is untruth that is difficult and a source of trouble. #Quote by Nisargadatta Maharaj
Lovable quotes by Joseph Campbell
#145. And then he says, "The writer must be true to truth." And that's a killer, because the only way you can describe a human being truly is by describing his imperfections. The perfect human being is uninteresting - the Buddha who leaves the world, you know. It is the imperfections of life that are lovable. And when the writer sends a dart of the true word, it hurts. But it goes with love. This is what Mann called "erotic irony," the love for that which you are killing with your cruel, analytical word. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Lovable quotes by Leanne Davis
#146. He really loved her, despite his conflicting thoughts. He even loved her before she became lovable. #Quote by Leanne Davis
Lovable quotes by Miroslav Volf
#147. Second, as Luther stated, because God's love isn't caused by its object, it can love those who are not lovable, "sinners, evil persons, fools, and weaklings in order to make them righteous, good, wise, and strong". Luther concluded, "rather than seeking its own good, the love of God flows forth and bestows good". #Quote by Miroslav Volf
Lovable quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#148. But-when you really think about it-that emotional support only applies to the experience of living in public. We don't have ways to quantify ideas like "amazing" or "successful" or "lovable" without the feedback of an audience. Nobody sits by himself in an empty room and thinks "I'm amazing." It's impossible to imagine how that would work. But being "amazing" is supposed to be what life is about. As a result, the windows of time people spend by themselves become these meaningless experiences that don't really count. It's filler. They're deleted scenes. pg 156 #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Lovable quotes by Jennifer L. Pozner
#149. That's just the kind of anxiety reality TV hopes to inspire in female viewers. After all, as advertisers have long understood, it's far easier to shill cosmetics and clothing - not to mention Match.com and and Bally Fitness memberships - to insecure women scared of being alone than to it is to self confident people who believe they're beautiful, lovable, and capable of being happy just as they are. #Quote by Jennifer L. Pozner
Lovable quotes by A Meredith Walters
#150. Just when I thought I had things under control, the reality of who I was smacked me squarely in the face. Being nuts was no fun let me tell you. I was a far cry from being the lovable eccentric. The wacky dude who mumbled to himself and wore his pants inside out. Nope, my kind of nuts was scary and consuming. #Quote by A Meredith Walters
Lovable quotes by Mother Teresa
#151. Our poor people are great people, a very lovable people, They don't need our pity and sympathy. They need our understanding love and they need our respect. We need to tell the poor that they are somebody to us that they, too, have been created, by the same loving hand of God, to love and be loved. #Quote by Mother Teresa

#152. The Haitian people are gentle and lovable except for their enormous and unconscious cruelty. #Quote by Zora Neale Hurston
Lovable quotes by Osamu Dazai
#153. He'll be back soon," she said, her face grave.
It suddenly occurred to me that what people call "honesty" might well refer to just such an expression. I wondered if what the word originally meant was not something lovable like that expression, rather than the stern virtue smelling of textbooks of morality. #Quote by Osamu Dazai
Lovable quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett

#158. Those shiny eyes like the stars in the sky; but black and brown,

Someone must have been praying and wishing me the whole world #Quote by M.F. Moonzajer
Lovable quotes by Susan Campbell
#159. A lot of people think that in order to be attractive, you need to appear cool, together or confident. But REAL confidence comes from accepting yourself as you are, and sharing the real you. When you share you do so simply in the interest of being transparent and not trying to get a certain favorable response. Letting go of trying to control other peoples' responses to you is one of the greatest confidence-builders I know of. And from my own experience, I have come to the conclusion that I am most lovable when I am most transparent. #Quote by Susan Campbell
Lovable quotes by Edmund Wilson
#160. [Northerners] took over the Southern myth and themselves began to revel in it. This acceptance was to culminate in Gone With the Wind, the enormous success of which novel makes a curious counterbalance to that of Uncle Tom's Cabin. But it began in the Century of the eighties with the stories of Thomas Nelson Page. Though Page had been only twelve at the end of the Civil War, so had had little experience of the old regime, he really invented for the popular mind Old Massa and Mistis and Meh Lady, with their dusky-skinned adoring retainers. The Northerners, after the shedding of so much blood, illogically found it soothing to be told that slavery had not been so bad, that the Negroes were a lovable but simple race, whose business was to work for whites. And Page also struck in his stories a note of reconciliation that everybody wanted to hear: he cooked up romances between young Northern officers, as gentlemanly as any Southerner, and spirited plantation beauties who might turn out to be the young men's cousins and who in any case would marry them after the war. #Quote by Edmund Wilson
Lovable quotes by Danielle Steel
#161. I'm not the enemy, they are. I hear them. You're not good enough so no one could ever love you. Come here," he said, pulling her into his arms and looking into her huge blue eyes that were the same color as his own. "I love you. You are lovable. They're idiots. And I love everything about you, just the way you are. Now that's my message to you. It's not theirs. It's mine. You are the most lovable woman I've ever known." As he said it, he kissed her, and tears of relief slid down her cheeks, and she sobbed in his arms. He had just told her everything she had waited to hear all her life, and had never heard before. #Quote by Danielle Steel
Lovable quotes by Gerard Way
#162. Ray Toro is a very eccentric, crazy genius type guy. I think he's a genius. He just got this thing at the VMA. The way he played, it makes you go 'Jesus!' He's really sweet, really kind of lovable. He's like a cartoon character. #Quote by Gerard Way
Lovable quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#163. Long ago there was a man that was crucified for being too loving and too lovable.
And strange to relate I met him thrice yesterday.
The first time he was asking a policeman to not take a prostitute to prison; the second time he was drinking wine with an outcast; and the third time he was having a fist-fight with a promoter inside a church #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Lovable quotes by Na Taejoo
#164. You have to look closely
To see that it is pretty
You have to look long
To see that it is lovable
You are the same #Quote by Na Taejoo
Lovable quotes by Victoria Vantoch
#165. Threesomes call us to confront jealousy, insecurity, fear of rejection, and a host of of other dark seeds inside ourselves. Three-ways can be huge growth experiences that encourage us to drop our insecurities and discover how wholly lovable we really are. #Quote by Victoria Vantoch
Lovable quotes by Jack Canfield
#166. The meaning of self-esteem is to feel lovable and capable. As parents, we must love our children unconditionally and give them a sense of being nurtured. That's the lovable part. Then, we must provide structure - rules, boundaries, daily or weekly household tasks that give them a sense they are making a contribution. That's what helps kids grow up feeling capable. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Lovable quotes by Rick Joyner
#167. I have often heard, "I love God but just don't like His people." This may sound glib, but as John explained, this is a basic deception as we do not really love God unless we also love His people. The Scriptures also go to great lengths to explain that love is not to be based on whether people are lovable or not. #Quote by Rick Joyner
Lovable quotes by Edward Abbey
#168. Men have never loved one another much, for reasons we can readily
understand: Man is not a lovable animal. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Lovable quotes by Joyce Maynard
#169. She never gave up adoring our father, but he ceased to be, for her, the larger-than-life hero I continued to make him into. For Patty, he was more like a deeply lovable spaniel who keeps peeing on the rug and chewing on the upholstery, no matter how many times you tell him not to. #Quote by Joyce Maynard
Lovable quotes by C.S. Lewis
#170. He loved us not because we were lovable, but because He is love. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Lovable quotes by Steve Martin
#171. I'm the leader of the platoon and I run gambling and lotteries, dances and I sell beer illegally. I'm a con man and I'm thoroughly lovable. #Quote by Steve Martin
Lovable quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#172. Holiness must have a philosophical and theological foundation, namely, Divine truth; otherwise it is sentimentality and emotionalism. Many would say later on, 'We want religion, but no creeds.' This is like saying we want healing, but no science of medicine; music, but no rules of music; history, but no documents. Religion is indeed a life, but it grows out of truth, not away from it. It has been said it makes no difference what you believe, it all depends on how you act. This is psychological nonsense, for a man acts out of his beliefs. Our Lord placed truth or belief in Him first; then came sanctification and good deeds. But here truth was not a vague ideal, but a Person. Truth was now lovable, because only a Person is lovable. Sanctity becomes the response the heart makes to Divine truth and its unlimited mercy to humanity. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Lovable quotes by Robertson Davies
#173. Authors like cats because they are such quiet, lovable, wise creatures, and cats like authors for the same reasons. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Lovable quotes by Sylvia Brownrigg
#174. You know, babe." Her voice had an older woman's weary advice in it. "You're so hungry. You want so much."
"Well." Flannery shrugged. "So what? I'll never get it."
"You might. If you stop asking."
"I'll never stop asking."
"I know." Anne touched her cheek. "It's one of the things that makes you strangely lovable. #Quote by Sylvia Brownrigg
Lovable quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#175. The reason domestic pets are so lovable and so helpful to us is because they enjoy, quietly and placidly, the present moment. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Lovable quotes by Kate Atkinson
#176. He never imagined, when his daughter was small and infinitely, eternally lovable, that he would ever develop a combative relationship with her. #Quote by Kate Atkinson
Lovable quotes by David Foster Wallace
#177. I am not sure whether you could call this abuse, but when I was (long ago) abroad in the world of dry men, I saw parents, usually upscale and educated and talented and functional and white, patient and loving and supportive and concerned and involved in their children's lives, profilgate with compliments and diplomatic with constructive criticism, loquacious in their pronouncements of unconditional love for and approval of their children, conforming to every last jot-tittle in any conceivably definition of a good parent, I saw parent after unimpeachable parent who raised kids who were (a) emotionally retarded or (b) lethally self-indulgent or (c) chronically depressed or (d) borderline psychotic or (e) consumed with narcissistic self-loathing or (f) neurotically driven/addicted or (g) variously psychosomatically Disabled or (h) some conjunctive permutation of (a) … (g).

Why is this. Why do many parents who seem relentlessly bent on producing children who feel they are good persons deserving of love produce children who grow to feel they are hideous persons not deserving of love who just happen to have lucked into having parents so marvelous that the parents love them even though they are hideous?

Is it a sign of abuse if a mother produces a child who believes not that he is innately beautiful and lovable and deserving of magnificent maternal treatment but somehow that he is a hideous unlovable child who has somehow lucked in to having a really magnificen #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Lovable quotes by Glen Cook
#178. Consider little children. There are not many of them not cute and lovable and precious, sweet as whipped honey and butter. So where do all the wicked people come from? #Quote by Glen Cook
Lovable quotes by Michael Cunningham
#179. Susan was a tough-minded romantic. She wanted to fall in love with a book. She always had reasons for her devotions, as an astute reader would, but she was, to her credit, probably the most emotional one among us. Susan could fall in love with a book in more or less the way one falls in love with a person. Yes, you can provide, if asked, a list of your loved one's lovable qualities: he's kind and funny and smart and generous and he knows the names of trees.
But he's also more than amalgamation of qualities. You love him, the entirety of him, which can't be wholly explained by even the most exhaustive explication of his virtues. And you love him no less for his failings. O.K., he's bad with money, he can be moody sometimes, and he snores. His marvels so outshine the little complaints as to render them ridiculous. #Quote by Michael Cunningham
Lovable quotes by Nick Mason
#180. Ever since the Beatles, the concept of lovable mop tops, it's a bit of a fantasy, but it's a lovely idea that people make wonderful music and live a wonderful life being friends together. Sadly, life isn't quite like that. #Quote by Nick Mason
Lovable quotes by Blaise Pascal
#181. There are two types of mind ... the mathematical, and what might be called the intuitive. The former arrives at its views slowly, but they are firm and rigid; the latter is endowed with greater flexibility and applies itself simultaneously to the diverse lovable parts of that which it loves. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Lovable quotes by Douglas Coupland
#182. There's nothing cure or funny or lovable about being cheap. It's a total turn-off. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Lovable quotes by E. M. Forster
#183. Man's feet are the measure for distance, his hands are the measure for ownership, his body is the measure for all that is lovable and desirable and strong. Then I went further: it was then that I called to you for the first time, and you would not come. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Lovable quotes by Denis Waitley
#184. Understand that you, yourself, are no more than the composite picture of all your thoughts and actions. In your relationships with others, remember the basic and critically important rule: If you want to be loved, be lovable. If you want respect, set a respectable example! #Quote by Denis Waitley
Lovable quotes by Dom M. Basil Pennington
#185. Knowing myself as the sinner enables me to know something more: a God of mercy--something greater, for love responds to what is good and lovable; mercy responds to what is not good and makes it good and lovable. #Quote by Dom M. Basil Pennington
Lovable quotes by Kristen Callihan
#186. Finding peace and contentment with Evernight - two emotions he was certain he'd never found in bed with a woman before - was entirely unacceptable. When awake, the woman was prickly as a hedgehog and about as lovable as a block of ice. #Quote by Kristen Callihan
Lovable quotes by Wally Lamb
#187. She flinched when I did it, and that involuntary response of hers satisfied me in some small, cheap way. I never claimed I was lovable. Never said I wasn't a son of a bitch. #Quote by Wally Lamb
Lovable quotes by Nina George
#188. He had found beneath the sorrow a place where emotion and happiness could live alongside tenderness and the realization that he was lovable after all. #Quote by Nina George
Lovable quotes by Maggie Shayne

Finally, a book for us all to adore! Thank you Karen Fox for creating the most lovable hero romance has seen in a long, long time! #Quote by Maggie Shayne
Lovable quotes by Lori Gottlieb
#190. If we have a choice between believing one of two things, both of which we have evidence for -- I'm unlovable, I'm lovable - often we choose the one that makes us feel bad. Why do we keep our radios tuned to the same static-ridden stations (the everyone's-life-is-better-than-mine, the I-can't-trust-people station, the nothing-works-out-for-me station) instead of moving the dial up or down? Change the station. Walk around the bars. Who's stopping us but ourselves? #Quote by Lori Gottlieb
Lovable quotes by Obert C. Tanner
#191. Agape means love for another self not because of any lovable qualities which he or she may possess, but purely and entirely because it is a self capable of experiencing happiness and misery and endowed with the power to choose between good and evil. The love of humans is thus more than a feeling, it is a state of the will. #Quote by Obert C. Tanner
Lovable quotes by C.S. Lewis
#192. No sooner do we believe that God loves us than there is an impulse to believe that He does so, not because He is Love, but because we are intrinsically lovable. The Pagans obeyed this impulse unabashed; a good man was "dear to the gods" because he was good. We, being better taught, resort to subterfuge. Far be it from us to think that we have virtues for which God could love us. But then, how magnificently we have repented! As Bunyan says, describing his first and illusory conversion, "I thought there was no man in England that pleased God better than I." Beaten out of this, we next offer our own humility to God's admiration. Surely He'll like that? Or if not that, our clear-sighted and humble recognition that we still lack humility. Thus, depth beneath depth and subtlety within subtelty, there remains some lingering idea of our own, our very own attractiveness. It is easy to acknowledge, but almost impossible to realize for long, that we are mirrors whose brightness, if we are bright, is wholly derived from the sun that shines upon us. Surely we must have a little--however little--native luminosity? Surely we can't be quite creatures? - The Four Loves #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Lovable quotes by Albert Ellis
#193. Acceptance is not love. You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they're alive and human. #Quote by Albert Ellis
Lovable quotes by Ashley Montagu
#194. It is not the most lovable individuals who stand more in need of love, but the most unlovable #Quote by Ashley Montagu
Lovable quotes by Brennan Manning
#195. The love of Christ embraces all without exception.
Fire of love, crazy over what You have made. Oh, divine Madman. (Prayer of Catherine Siena)
Simply do the next thing in love.
I have no sense of myself apart from you.
Quia amasti me, fecisti me amabilem. (In loving me, you made me lovable.) #Quote by Brennan Manning
Lovable quotes by Michael Grant
#196. You're a big, lovable teddy bear. #Quote by Michael Grant
Lovable quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#197. I had a dog once. I thought so much of him that when he died I couldn't bear the thought of getting another in his place. He was a FRIEND - you understand, Mistress Blythe? Matey's only a pal. I'm fond of Matey - all the fonder on account of the spice of devilment that's in him - like there is in all cats. But I LOVED my dog. I always had a sneaking sympathy for Alexander Elliott about HIS dog. There isn't any devil in a good dog. That's why they're more lovable than cats, I reckon. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Lovable quotes by Rajneesh
#198. Meditation is a silent heart, a peaceful mind which can make life more lovable, more livable ... #Quote by Rajneesh
Lovable quotes by Ann B. Davis
#199. I think I'm lovable. That's the gift God gave me. I don't do anything to be lovable. I have no control. #Quote by Ann B. Davis
Lovable quotes by Matthew Perry
#200. I think if you look back at all those great comedies on television in the past, it's all lovable losers that gathered together - 'Taxi' and 'Cheers,' 'Seinfeld' and 'Friends.' #Quote by Matthew Perry
