How to Find the Best Love Quotes to Express How You Feel

The best love quotes in the world will come in handy when you’re looking to profess your love to someone, rekindle passion in a relationship, or mend a broken relationship. For the young ones who haven’t experienced the magic of falling in love, simply reading the best love quotes will give them an idea how it feels to be in love with another person.

With thousands of romantic quotes written across generations, it can sometimes be challenging to find the right one to express how you feel. Here are tips to find the perfect love quote to identify your feelings and say them in words that anyone can appreciate and understand.

Love Quote by Franklin P. Jones1. Do a specific online search.

The easiest way to find the best love quotes is to do an online search, but don’t be surprised to receive thousands of search results if you stick to general search terms like “love quotes” or “romantic quotes.”

 The key here is to be as specific as possible when searching for a quote. For example, if you want to get quotes to send to your boyfriend or husband who works overseas, you can try searching for “long distance relationship love quotes for him” or “quotes about long distance relationships.”

 Just remember to attach the words “love quote” to your purpose when doing an online search. Other specific search terms are “love quotes for devotion”, “love quotes for newly married couples,” and “teen love quotes.”

 2. Read romance books.

 Many of the best love quotes were taken from romance books. Check out the works of both classics and contemporary authors. Here’s an example of a beautiful love quote from the classic Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte: “If you ever looked at me once with what I know is in you, I would be your slave.”

 Modern romance authors also have a lot to offer when it comes to love quotes. Take for example this tender words from The Notebook by bestselling romance author, Nicholas Sparks: “You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most. I treasure each side, just as I have treasured our life together.”

 Before searching for the best love quotes in romance books, read the plot or the summary of the story and see if you can relate to it.

 3. Listen to love songs or watch a romantic movie.

 Much like reading a romance book you can relate to, listen to love songs or watch romantic films that reflect how you feel. Often, you will also find emotionally-stirring statements in song lyrics or in lines from romance films.

How long it lasts, no one knows;

You hope you’ve found that special rose,
Cause you love and care for the one you chose.

– Love Quotes and Sayings by Antiphanes

We have days that are special to us, and sometimes we expect special treatment and gifts from the one we Love. But for me, I don’t want any gift on my special day. Do you know what gift I want from you?? I don’t want gold or diamonds, name brand clothes, or fancy bags to flaunt. I don’t want the stars or the moon. I just want to have one full day with you; just you and me where you speak and I will listen and show my adoration for you. Watching you get excited while we are talking and holding each other’s hands. I want a day where we can talk non-stop endlessly, and we can go wherever we want; a night together amidst the full moon and stars where you are my most shining star. I want to hug you and lay my head on your chest, and your every heartbeat calls my name. A night where we can sleep together in each other’s arms, calmly. I don’t want sex. I just want to explore your soul; touch it with my Love, and draw you into me. I want a night where time stands still while I am wrapped up in your arms, and the only sound will be the sound of our heartbeats… beating together

Best Love Quotes and Sayings

I want to be a part of everything you do. I just want to be there …When we’re stuck in the rain, when we’re standing on the top of a mountain waiting for sunrise, when we’re picking strawberries, when we’re watching the sunset, when we’re walking on the beach, when we are watching the night sky, when we are baking cookies, when we are making the beds, when we go for roller coaster rides and a lot more that we do together. I just want to see you laugh, I want to feel you in my arms, I want to be able to hear your voice, I want to be able to feel your smell, I want to feel your hand holding my hand ,I want to be able to touch you, I want me to be the reason behind your smiles, I want to feel you near me, I want to be your little girl, your princess, I want to be your life, I want to be your reason to fall in love with life all over again. I want you to want me like I want you because I will be loving you till the end
