74 Relationship Quotes That Celebrate Love—and Give You All The Feels Openerakinbostanci/Getty Images

Why is love so easy to feel but so hard to express?

“I love you” is always great but sometimes those three little words just aren’t enough to express the true depth of your love. Thankfully there are plenty of love quotes from people who are much smarter, wiser, and funnier than the rest of us. Romantic love quotes, loyalty quotes, love poems, love memes, and other sayings can get your creative juices flowing so you can truly express your love and devotion.

How to use love quotes: There’s a beautiful quote about love for every relationship occasion. Write one on a sticky note on the mirror or in your partner’s car, to brighten your loved one’s day. Text one as a way to let them know you’re thinking about them. Use a love quote to caption on a cute couple pic on Instagram.

Or perhaps you are trying to come up with the perfect swoon-worthy ~something~ to say for a meaningful occasion. You can use these love quotes in wedding vows, writing anniversary or birthday cards, inscribing jewelry, or attached to a gift sent to a long-distance love. The options are endless!
