Don’t Tune Out Just Yet! Love Quotes From Steve Harvey That Are Worth A Listen

The man with the well-manicured mustache has all the funnies and now, apparently all the answers when it comes to love. Steve Harvey, the self professed love guru to the everyday woman and author of the best-selling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man uses his show as a platform to answer women’s most pressing issues and questions regarding men. So what, pray-tell, gives Steve the right to think he’s the expert on relationships? I mean, the king of comedy dresses in swagger-esque suits that fit like a glove, but does he fit into this love advisor role so easily? Especially since he’s on his third marriage, and has claims of abuse thrown at him from his ex-wife.

Regardless of those accusations, people shouldn’t be quite so quick to disregard Steve’s advice. Sure, some of it is a little left-field, but there are times when he’s been dead-on. Here are a few book quotes that prove we should lend Steve our ears and hear at least some of what he has to say.

  • A lot of people discounted him for being married 3 times. I did too until I realized why single women should at least consider what he is saying. He may not be perfect but he is keeping it real.

    For those women who seem to always attract men who don’t want to commit, are with men who won’t provide, and who seem to only pull dogs you should read his book. Why? Because he was all of thee above. He’s telling you straight up with no chaser why these men do what they do to YOU but a year down the road he’s cheesing and smiling all over

    Facebook with a big rock on the finger of a woman who ain’t you. Is she better? Prettier? Nicer? Probably not but she knows and practices what you haven’t.

    She isn’t discounting, selling short, or bartering her love away. She has a bar, a standard that he will either come correct to reach or keep it stepping. She has a fine bull sh*t filter and knows how to get rid of the losers, users, and abusers so she can keep herself free for the man who is worth her time. I would suggest you borrow your girl’s copy and just read it. It does have a lot of truth in it.

  • just saying

    Shut up Steve. A real man doesn’t leave his wife destitute either.

  • Steve is a hustler, he talks loud, says nothing, and it sounds great; even if it doesn’t make any sense.

  • I hate his mustache..

  • iHM

    I didn’t really think he had anything worthwhile to say and I didn’t think anything worthwhile that he DID say was even original, until I read this:

    “And if you’re her man and that woman loves you—I mean really loves you?—she will shine you up when you’re dusty, encourage you when you’re down, defend you even when she’s not so sure you were right, and hang on your every word, even when you’re not saying anything worth listening to. And no matter what you do, no matter how many times her friends say you’re no good, no matter how many times you slam the door on the relationship, she will give you her very best and then some, and keep right on trying to win over your heart, even when you act like everything she’s done to convince you she’s The One just isn’t good enough. That’s a woman’s love—it stands the test of time, logic, and all circumstance.”

    Wow. Very true. I had no idea Steve Harvey had a clue about women. Or maybe he does know a lot about women and uses it to abuse them emotionally.

    • You’re right. “A woman’s love – it stands the test of time, LOGIC, and all circumstance.”…Is the same “love” he uses AGAINST US to call us stupid for sticking with said man whose heart we’re trying to win even when dude don’t want us. If I acted like a lady but thought like a man,I guess I should remove logic from that equation and start thinking for once.

      • iHM

        You said it all! I completely agree and I can totally relate.
