I feel like love quotes are incredibly good and should always be used.

And the reason why I say this is because there are so many situations where you can use them….

  • You’re deeply in love and want your significant other to feel special too.

Your current love situation (or current lack of it!) is unique, and it can help to put thoughtful, beautiful, or even funny words to it.

Also, even though your love status is unique, sometimes you come across a love quote, whether it be from a great writer, movie, TV show, or even a song – that just gets you.

So check out these quotes about love that can help heal your heart, or help you get much closer to the person you love. I promise, you’re gonna like them. 🙂

  • “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” — C. S. Lewis

What is the Most Romantic Quote Ever?

Personally, I find that this quote is probably one of the most romantic quotes ever:

  • “I saw that you were perfect, and so I loved you. Then I saw that you were not perfect and I loved you even more.” — Angelita Lim

It’s such a great reminder that when you find someone, you understand that you’re both not perfect, and you can love each other regardless.

That your love is unconditional; it’s not based on them meeting certain expectations and always making you happy.

It’s seeing that they’re flawed, looking beyond that, and loving them throughout their growing process.

The Best Ways to Share These Love Lines

If you’re looking for some great ways to share these quotes, then I’ve got you covered.

Here are some ideas for you to think about:

  • In a text or voice message when… they’re having a rough day, you want to surprise them, or you’re just feeling really connected.
  • A card attached to a flower delivery.
  • A beautiful card that was thoughtfully picked out.
  • A sticky note left on the mirror that they’ll see when getting ready in the morning.
  • A hand written card or note carefully folded into a gift.
  • Personalized + simple gift like a mug (which is great since it’s something they might be using on the daily).
  • A love quote jar: This way they can pick one out whenever they need a little extra love and encouragement.
  • Surprise love notes that you put into their bag, pocket, wallet, etc. Another great way to surprise them.
  • You can also frame one that you know really touches them.

Romantic Quotes FAQ

Neon sign that says, "love."
1. What is a Strong Quote About Love?

“I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you.” — Ben Folds
This is such a great quote that shows strong love. Sometimes, you have such powerful feelings towards someone that it’s more than you can express.

2. What is the Deepest Love Quote Ever?

While the deepest love quote is subjective, I really like this one by the Persian poet, Rumi:
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
It’s a quote that shows how you can go beyond any judgement or even societal norms to be with someone on a deep, loving, and authentic level. You’ll support and be there for each other no matter what.

3. How Do You Express Deep Love in Words?

One of the best ways you can express deep love in your words is to really think about what it is that makes you love them. Also, what first made you fall in love with them, and what could you not live without if they were gone? Then tell them. Tell them what you appreciate and love about them. Don’t let these important things go unsaid.

4. What is the Strongest Word to Express Love?

The strongest word to express love can definitely depend, but I’d say “unconditional.” It shows that your love isn’t dependent on any conditions or expectations. It’s just there regardless of circumstances.

I hope you enjoyed this list of love quotes, from classic authors like Jane Austen all the way to, yes, even the Cookie Monster. What can I say? Wise words about love can come from anywhere.

These quotes, whether they’re from the residents of Sesame Street, or from the lyrics of a Taylor Swift song, remind us that there are so many different kinds of love: the love between a married couple, a first love, even the love between friends.
