A hug is the shortest distance between friends.
A hug is like a boomerang – you get it back right away.
Bil Keane, “Family Circus”
Millions and millions of years would still not give me half enough time to describe that tiny instant of all eternity when you put your arms around me and I put my arms around you.
Everybody needs a hug. It changes your metabolism.
You can’t wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug.

I love hugging. I wish I was an octopus, so I could hug ten people at a time.
No matter how hard you hug your money, it never hugs back.
Quoted in P.S. I Love You, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Arm ourselves for war? No! All the arms we need are for hugging.
I will not play at tug o’ war
I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs….
A hug is a handshake from the heart.
You can’t give a hug without getting a hug.
A hug delights and warms and charms,
that must be why God gave us arms.
Hugs are the universal medicine.
A hug is a great gift – one size fits all, and it’s easy to exchange.
Happiness is an unexpected hug.
A kiss without a hug is like a flower without the fragrance.
If you’re angry at a loved one, hug that person. And mean it. You may not want to hug – which is all the more reason to do so. It’s hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that’s precisely what happens when we hug each other.
Walter Anderson, The Confidence Course, 1997
There’s nothing like a mama-hug.
Hugs grease the wheels of the world.
Hug someone your appreciation.
A hug is worth a thousand words.
Have you hugged yourself today?
A hug is two hearts wrapped in arms.
I don’t discriminate – I’m an equal-opportunity hugger.
Hugging has no unpleasant side effects and is all natural. There are no batteries to replace, it’s inflation-proof and non-fattening with no monthly payments. It’s non-taxable, non-polluting, and is, of course, fully refundable.
Never wait until tomorrow to hug someone you could hug today,
because when you give one, you get one right back your way.
Sometimes it’s better to put love into hugs than to put it into words.
