100 Romantic Love Quotes to Share Your Feelings with Him or Her (2024)

You don't have to wait until Valentine's Day to share these ultra-romantic sayings with your sweetie!

By Jill Gleeson

There's a reason why love is the preferred topic of everyone from philosophers to poets, and it's the same reason why romantic movies, songs, and books are so enduringly popular. As the following best love quotes show, there is no better, more powerful emotion in the whole, wide world than being in love. And no matter which of the five love languages you use with your honey, from words of affirmation (expressions of encouragement) to acts of service (helping with chores), it's important to share those beautiful feelings with them upon occasion. Of course, most of us aren't philosophers or poets, which can make putting these kinds of intense sentiments into words difficult.

That's where the best love quotes we've rounded up come into play. Whether you're looking for a cute love quote to make her day, or a famous love quote for him, you're sure to find the perfect way to express your adoration on our list. We've collected the most romantic, deep and inspirational thoughts about love from great minds including Jane Austen, Aristotle, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gandhi. Whisper your favorite into your significant other's ear before bedtime, send one in a text at lunch, or jot down another in a sweet card—or do all three! After all, as Henry David Thoreau once said, "There is no remedy for love but to love more."
