With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we decided to celebrate that special something called love with a beautifully designed collection of quotes about love.
I love love, but – really – who doesn’t. For all the heartache it can bring, it is the one and the only thing that truly sets us apart. If you have someone special in your life this Valentine’s Day, here are some wonderful sentiments you are welcome to share with them. After all, the best thing about love is that you can’t run out!
Young or old, these quotes about love provide a little bit of inspiration as well as a reminder of what loves adds to our lives. Whether you are spending this Valentine’s Day with a special someone, or a special pet, there is enough love for absolutely everyone.
To help celebrate the spirit of love and romance, we have pulled together some of our favorite love quotes and illustrated them in a way we hope you will enjoy. From classic quotes pulled from some of the most romantic poems ever written, to beautiful sayings about those who are still seeking love, this collection is sure to pull on some heartstrings.
If you had to pick one single day that you most associate with Love and Romance, it would probably be Valentine’s Day. No big surprise there, we tend to focus a lot of time, attention, and money on expressing our love for one other on that particular day. But it’s also important to remember that there are 364 other days in the year, which gives us plenty of other opportunities throughout the year to let someone know that we love them.
But expressing our feelings for one another is not always easy, especially if you’re not good with words. Either we get so wrapped up in our emotions that it becomes difficult to find just the right words, or we are worried that we will sound foolish if we try to express ourselves.
Or – even worse – we get so busy with our day-to-day lives that we simply don’t take the time out of our day to remind ourselves, and the ones we love, of their importance in our lives.
Between our jobs, preparing meals, cleaning the house, taking the dog for a walk, getting the car tuned up, keeping up to date on social media, world news, and the latest binge-worthy show on Amazon Prime, it is far too easy to let an entire day slip by without even a touch of romance.
There is a danger in letting romance pay the price for our busy lives. After all, like houseplants, relationships need nurturing and love needs to be shared.
There are many ways that we each other a hint of romance on a regular basis because small things can mean so much. If you care about someone, try one of these little tips each day.
- Ask them about their day, and really pay attention to the answer
- Cooking them their favourite meal or bake them their favorite treat
- Slip a little “I love you note” into their pocket
- If you’re a remote control hog, hand them the remote for the evening
- Take them out on a real, proper, actual date
- Posting a super-mushy message on their social media profile
- Put together a playlist of songs that remind you of them
- Tell them they look great, smell great, are great. Basically, pay them a random compliment
- Simply say “I love you!” out of the blue
That last one – saying “I Love You” – may seem like the easiest to accomplish, but it can make a big impact. And it isn’t always as easy as you would think… especially when the relationship is new or when the relationship is old enough that we’ve fallen out of romantic practice.
We like quotes about love because they have a way of speaking the truth into our hearts. When a quote speaks about something that is universal, it speaks to each of us in a way that the experience of love can be transformed. We think that if you can find a quote about love that speaks to your heart, we can find inspiration for things you can do that may take you out of your ordinary experience of love.
Quotes – especially ones that have been designed into images – are also a great way to share your feeling with someone special. You can send them by social media, email, messenger, text – however, you would like. And, for those who prefer to enjoy these kinds of things in a more social setting, we will be sharing them on our Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram accounts – so feel free to check them all out there as well!
So grab a cup of coffee – or two – and enjoy this lovely collection. And feel free to share any of these designed love quotes with the people that you love!

True love is not easy, like most of us know. But it is the most beautiful. It’s long distance, and complicated; it’s odd and unique. It’s friendship and appreciation, adventure and peace of mind.
Love is what keeps us going, what inspires our thoughts, our feelings, our actions. Love is our responsibility, and it brings a smile to our face.

There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.

When I say I love you more, I don’t mean I love you more than you love me. I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead of us, I love you more than any fight we will ever have. I love you more than the distance between us, I love you more than any obstacle that could try and come between us. I love you the most.
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you’d like them to be.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.
Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
I love you for all that you are, all that you have been and all that you are yet to be.
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.
