Lesbians love to talk about love. Are you looking for a bit of love inspiration? Here are some love quotes from some of your favorite lesbian celebrities and famous lesbian couples.
Ellen DeGeneres was quoted in The Advocate magazine about her love for Portia, "I could say the same thing I've said in every relationship: I'm happy. But there's happiness and there's love, and then there's completion."
Portia de Rossi was quoted in The Advocate magazine as saying "I ran into Ellen at a photo shoot [in 2004] and she took my breath away. That had never happened to me in my life, where I saw somebody and [experienced] all of those things you hear about in songs and read about in poetry. My knees were weak."
Melissa Etheridge was quoted in the Washington Blade about her new partner Linda Wallem: "I don’t think we’re ever ready [for love.] Like if it was up to me I’d still be sitting up in my room, ‘No! No! I’m not going to do that again!’ But love has a way of coming and the relationship that I’m actually in now, she’s been my best friend for 10 years. Believe me, I wasn’t going to go out and look for it, it found its way into my home. I’m very happy. Yes I am ready to try my hand at love again."
Jane Lynch said about her wife Lara Embry and their life together: "I love it! I always wanted to have a partner. I always wanted to have someone to walk through life with, and I really have not had that before. We spend all day together and we make home together very well. We all watch the show. My daughter loves it, so the three of us watch it together."
Rosie O'Donnell was quoted in US magazine about her girlfriend Michelle Rounds: "She's so unbelievably connected and refined. I so love her embracing her femininity in a real feminist manner. To be able to be a lesbian, feminine, feminist is pretty sexy."
Cynthia Nixon was quoted in the NY Daily News as saying, "I'm in love with [Christine] because she's her. If she were a man, would I be in love with her? I don't know. We shop and cook and raise children--we both pitch in."
Kate Clinton on humor in the bedroom: "You need to let moments of laughter and light into bed—if there’s no room for that, maybe you shouldn’t be there. Melt. Let yourself get silly. One time Urvashi put on some Carole King, and it was the wrong music for sex. It’s lovely, of course, but all I wanted to do was sing along! We got hysterical about it."
Nikki Weiss and were a couple on the first season of The Real L Word. In an interview with Velvet Park Nikki Weiss said, "I am truly in love with my partner and I am unable to do so, yet we have these virtual strangers, allowed to get married within weeks of knowing one another? Trust me, Jill and I take our union very seriously. We will be married in our hearts in front of our family and friends, but MOST IMPORTANTLY for us, we will be recognized by the Jewish religion, as married, signing a Ketubah and being honored by Jewish law."
Cathy DeBuono said about falling in love with Jill Bennett: "I fell in love with her sense of self, her sense of humor and her straight forwardness. It wasn’t until after I got bit by those bugs, so to speak, that I began to get drawn to her physical beauty, which of course is obvious! But I didn't care until after we started making each other laugh on a daily basis."
