100 Inspirational Love Quotes for Him or Her

Here’s a little inspiration to tell your love how you really feel.

Here’s the thing about love — it’s hard to put into words, no matter how deeply you feel it for your partner.

Luckily for you, we found 100 of the best, most inspirational love quotes for him or her to make finding different, new and creative ways to say “I love you” a whole lot easier.

Feeling love brings up all kinds of additional emotions that run the gamut from agony to ecstasy.

Loving someone can inspire you to accomplish some of the craziest and most amazing feats you’ll ever undertake.

Being in love can make you feel happier than you’ve ever been, sadder than you’ve ever been, and even angrier than you’ve ever been. It can elate you and deflate you at almost at the exact same time.

However, while most people can recognize the sensations they associate most closely with love fairly easily, finding just the right words to express those feelings is a far more difficult order.

People have searched for centuries to find the right ways to say, “I love you” for the first (or the billionth) time in order to try explaining those butterflies you get in your stomach, that warm fuzzy feeling in your head and that heart skipping a million beats in your chest.

But one thing we do know is that, whether you’ve loved and won or loved and lost, when love is real, it’s always worth it.

And while there are plenty of ways to express your love through body language and nonverbal communication, finding the perfect love quote that sums up exactly what you’re thinking and feeling can be pretty darn amazing.

Luckily, some of the world’s greatest artists, poets, musicians, authors and hopeless romantics (like ourselves) have managed to articulate the magic of love using words so simple and perfect, sharing them with the person you love can mean the world to you both.

Here are 100 of the best inspirational love quotes for him or her to share when you’re searching for new, creative ways to say, “I love you.”

Inspirational Love Quotes for Her

1. “To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to love and be loved, that’s everything.” — T. Tolis

2. “Maybe the only vow we ever need to offer the one we love is this: I will never, not …

100 Best ‘I Love You Quotes’ For Soulmates And Kindred Spirits

Because you can never say those 3 little words too much.

Saying “I love you” to your soulmate never goes out of style.

Those three little words say it all — whether you’re saying them to someone’s face or offering them in the form of simple love quotes you send them on social media, in texts, DMs, or even in good, old-fashioned greeting cards. Or do they?

No one can deny the power of hearing the person you love actually say “I love you” out loud.

Once strung together, those three words are a big deal, and saying them to the love of your life is just as meaningful the 500th time as it is the first time around.

If you’re true soulmates and kindred spirits, you’ll never get tired of hearing them said, and you’ll never get tired of saying them to him or her in return.

In fact, when you’re in a long-term romantic relationship with someone you truly love, it’s easy to fall into the (totally beautiful, even healthy) habit of saying “I love you” multiple times a day, every day.

But when “I love you” becomes the new “Good morning,” “Goodnight,” and “I gotta run, but could you please pick up some more almond milk later if you get a chance?” — it can start to fall on, well, let’s not say deaf ears, but certainly less swept-of-their-feet ears.

While those three words certainly mean a lot, there are plenty of other ways to express the unconditional love you feel that you may not have thought about much.

In fact, there are as many different ways to say, “I love you” as there are reasons to say it — and then some!

It can be fun and romantic to mix up your daily I love you’s and find new ways to make your partner’s heart melt all over again.

Of course, we can’t all be Shakespeare.

For some of us, words of affirmation simply aren’t our primary love language, and probably never will be, so managing to string those three little words together usually feels like an accomplishment in and of itself.

Fortunately, there’s nothing wrong with borrowing a little romantic inspiration in the form of quotes about love taken from authors, poets, movies, songs … you name it!

Whether you’ve been saying it for years or it’s the very first time, get ready to make …

50 Romantic Love Quotes To Use In Your Wedding Vows

Make your “I do” mean something as special as your love for each other.

Your wedding vows are some of the most important words you will say in your life.

They carry so much meaning and promise that the thought of even putting them down on paper is nerve-wracking. The idea of having to say them to the love of your life in front of your most important people is seventeen thousand times more nerve-wracking.

And of course, if you want to skip the traditional route and learn how to write your own wedding vows, you surely to want them to be as beautiful as they are sincere, whether you use your own words or gather a collection of the most meaningful love and wedding quotes you can find.

An old friend of mine wrote her own marriage vows for her wedding, and they’re so simple yet meaningful that I had to include them here as an example:

“I will never stop telling how you how much I love you. I promise to remind you how handsome you are, how kind and generous you are, and to remind you that you are the most amazing person and father that I’ve ever met in my life.

I promise to be your best friend, because you are mine. I vow to be yours, and truly yours, as I have been ever since you sat next to me at our high school lunch table.

In sickness and in health: I promise to take care of you, even when you’ve over-indulged the night before. For richer or for poorer: I promise not to spend all our money at Target.

And finally, I promise to always love you, and I will never miss a chance to tell you again.”

Meanwhile, her beloved husband, responded:

“I take you as my wife, my partner for life, and as my best friend. I vow to love you more each and everyday. I will always be honest and patient with you. I vow to always be there when you need me the most. To grow old and raise our beautiful child together. I am truly blessed to be a part of your life and to have you in mine.”

Vows can be intimidating to write. Not only are they made out to be the most important words you could say to your partner ever, but you also have to …

25 Inspirational Quotes About Life And Struggles To Get You Through Difficult Times

25 Inspirational Quotes About Life And Struggles To Get You Through Difficult Times
 

“When you know your worth, no one can make you feel worthless.”

Life is beautiful but not always easy. It has problems too, and the challenge lies in facing them with courage, letting the beauty of life act like a balm, which makes the pain bearable, during trying times, by providing hope

Happiness and sorrow, victory and defeat, and day and night are the two sides of the coin. Similarly, life is full of moments of joy, pleasure, success, and comfort punctuated by misery, defeat, failure, and problems.

There is no human being on Earth — strong, powerful, wise, or rich — who has not experienced struggle, suffering, or failure.

No doubt, life is beautiful and every moment — a celebration of being alive, but one should be always ready to face adversity and challenges. A person who has not encountered difficulties in life can never achieve success.

Difficulties test the courage, patience, perseverance, and true character of a human being, making them strong and ready to face the challenges of life with equanimity. There is no doubt that there can be no gain without pain.

Thus, life is and should not be just a bed of roses; thorns are also a part of it and should be accepted by us just as we accept the beautiful side of life.

The thorns remind one of how success and happiness can be evasive and thus, not to feel disappointed and disheartened, but remember that the pain of thorns is short-lived and the beauty of life would soon overcome the prick of thorns.

Sometimes, you just want to read inspirational quotes that will lift you up and add a spark to your day. As life offers so many wonderful ups and downs, it is great to get a new perspective to turn a frown upside down.

Knowing how powerful words can be, here are 25 profound inspirational quotes for life to enhance your day now. Enjoy!

1. You have to know that you are good enough and worth it.

“You will truly never be good enough for anyone else if you are not good enough for yourself first.”

2. Just live right now, and be yourself, it doesn’t matter if it’s not good enough for someone else.

“Sometimes we can feel like we are not good enough, but it is important to remember that we have nothing to prove others. Love and …
