Feel something going pitter-patter? That’s your heart, silly!
As Plato once said, “At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.”
Don’t agree? It’s not hard to see why.
Many tongue-tied lovers stumble over themselves when trying to figure out just the right way to say “I love you.”
After all, it’s not easy to fully express exactly how it is you feel about the person you love most.
It’s not like most of us walk around with a endless supply of our favorite love quotes at the top of our mind and on the tip of our tongue. Honestly, if we did, we might sound even more awkward than we do otherwise.
Luckily, however, the internet is an endless resource for finding inspirational phrases and saying that poets, musicians, artists, philosophers and screenwriters have written or uttered, putting this most elusive and complex feeling into words.
We certainly can’t all expect to be Shakespeare, Joyce, or a Brontë sister, but we absolutely can sift through the treasure trove of quotes about love which they and other brilliant minds created for us all.
While every love is unique, there is a collective nature to the emotions involved in that heady mix of passion, fear, joy, worry, excitement and trepidation. So even if some of the most famous love quotes you’ve read in the past did little to speak to your particular soul, we can guarantee that there are at least several gathered here that will make you say, “Yes. That.”
Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it. Take your time, letting the words glide through your mind, heart and soul. When your heart beats quickly and you can’t help but think of your own him or her, you’ll know you found the one to save (and maybe even to share with them).
So pour yourself a glass of wine, relax and picture the person who makes your heart dance. Then enjoy the beautiful words written, spoken or sung by some of the most gifted minds in the world.
Here are our favorite 50 inspirational love quotes from famous authors, artists, musicians, movies and more to help you let him or her know exactly how you feel.
