Marianne Williamson Quotes About Love

Who is Marianne Williamson and why should we take to heart her best love quotes?

The morning after the democratic debates, I found myself searching online to find out more about Marianne Williamson and what she has to say and has said about love in the life of her career.

I know of her from years ago as an author and speaker. I even saw her speaking in person at a Louise Hay conference about five years ago when I was working on my book, Empower Yourself by Loving Your Body.

I loved everything she had to say. She is of small stature but packs a punch. And the best part is that punch is fueled by love. She's a good role model. She hasn't lived the typical life from what I can tell. And she's been in service to helping people connect to love.

Nonetheless, she is a strong woman. She's strong...yet soft. She's intelligent but knows the wisdom of her body and power of emotions. She's connected to both her masculine and feminine energy.

We need more women like her and I'm excited to see more of what comes forth as the candidacy progresses.

Marianne Williamson is a spokesperson for love.

And to get more familiar with her, I want to share some of her quotes. She's not new on the map when it comes to love and spirituality. She's been a spokesperson for that for a long time having written over 12 or more books on these subjects.

Enjoy these quotes about love and let them touch you in a way that opens your heart. Williamson's message is basically that our country doesn't need another policy to fight over, our country needs love. And I won't argue with that.

So, get comfortable. Take a deep breath. And relax.

Take a few moments to read these quotes and absorb the wisdom they contain. Let them wash over you like a spiritual bath to renew you and inspire you.

You play an important role in making this a better world. All you have to do is your part of opening yourself up to love.

Don't underestimate the power of love you have to offer yourself and others, especially those you are having challenges with or those you judge.

With that said, here are 14 love quotes from Marianne Williamson that we should all take to heart.
