I was way too immature to understand almost everything about love and what actually happened after falling for it myself. Today when I look into the past, I realized that these same quotes meant like nothing to me when I was busy enjoying and growing in my independent and single life. But, today when I look over the same words, they seem to be pouring out the pure meanings, the words which I understand to the best.
Here are 21 one of them, I can say the best ones to feel that breeze of love.
