Joyce Meyer is a best-selling author, TV and radio host, who has a huge outreach program across the world. With over 100 books and more than 12 million copies given out for free across the world, Meyer has the privilege of helping people understand the word of God.

Here are some of Meyer's most memorable quotes about love:

1. When talking about our war with the devil, Meyer says love is the greatest weapon and "we defeat the enemy's tactics every time we forgive instead of hold a grudge … have patience with someone rather than rush them … speak with humility rather than arrogance."

2. Meyer believes it is our choice whether we are selfish or happy, but she says "Jesus is the greatest example of what it means to love others and not live a selfish life."

3. Meyer teaches that God is love and He wants us to share His love with the world. She says we should "always remember that indifference makes an excuse but love finds a way."

4. Meyer also points out that a person can't truly love others until they learn to love themselves, and that people should "believe that God loves you with an everlasting love, and then share that love with others."

5. Love is also not free and requires great sacrifice from both parties. According to Meyer, "each time we choose to love someone, it will cost us something" and that we should understand the cost ahead of time.

6. Getting back to spreading the love of God to the world, Meyer emphasizes that "if you don't love yourself in a healthy, balanced way, then you won't be able to spread the love of God to those around you because you can't give away something you don't have to begin with."

7. Meyer says the greatest gift in the world is love and God's love is His greatest gift to us. She emphasizes that "loving and being loved are what make our lives worth living."

8. Love also isn't just a word, but an action undertaken by individuals that makes the world a better place. Showing love is what is important and it is something that is ever changing, as Meyer writes that "I've learned that true love will always adapt and adjust to the needs and desires of other people."
