lesbian quotes

It does not matter who you love, your feelings and your needs matter. Everyone deserves a chance at love, and in a world where there are still people who don't believe in this, it is nice to be reminded that your love is valid, no matter what.

Whether you are feeling for the first time or the fifth time, loving someone can turn you into a person that is full of hope for the future, endless positive emotions, and pure happiness.

Maybe you know you have found the right girl to share your life with or maybe you are still out there looking for Mrs. Right, but whatever the case may be, keeping your heart open makes it that much easier to find love.

When your best friend becomes your girlfriend, it can feel like you have won the jackpot. To express all those feelings to your girlfriend these lesbian quotes can help get the message across!

Some of the best (and strongest) love is between two best friends; you already spend time with each other, you can be open and honest about anything, and knowing everything about her just makes it easier for you to fall for each other.

Below you'll find lesbian quotes about love for everyone who identifies as a lesbian; some silly and some serious, but all for you, whether you have that special girl in your life or not yet.
