50 Best Romantic Happy Anniversary Love Quotes And Wishes For Him Or Her

Sweet nothings for your love.

Happy Anniversary! Whether you’ve been dating for a few years or married to your best friend and lover for decades, having found (and kept!) true love in healthy, long-term relationships is certainly cause for celebration.

And there’s nothing that captures your feelings or “Happy Anniversary” wishes quite like the best love quotes can.

Relationship and wedding anniversaries are special because they mark one of the most important days of your life — a day when everything changed for the better and your life was never the same again, a day neither of you will never forget.

When you look back, it’s probably easy to reminisce about how special that day actually was, the people you shared it with, the celebration you had, and the proclamations of love you shared with your special someone. Each and every one of those precious moments is memorable and equally ingrained in your hearts.

These moments you shared together are treasures in your mind, and your memories of them are always there to bring you up when you are feeling down, revisiting them in your mind as a way to warm your heart.

No one can take those happy memories away from you. Each relationship has their own unique memories, and while they’re all different, every single last one is extremely special.

Now that your anniversary is drawing near, you may be looking for the perfect way to say, “Hey, I still love you, even after all of these years.”

Figuring out the right words for expressing such a sentiment can be nerve-wracking for some people. You want something that is sentimental and sweet, but also expresses the fact that your love is as hot and passionate now as it was on day one.

You’re not alone. This is something that nearly every single person who’s ever been in a lasting relationship has gone through. Finding your perfect ways to say “I love you” will be different for everyone.

You may even be staring a blank anniversary card and hoping for some poignant romantic quotes about love to magically pop into your mind.

Yeah, that’s tough. We can’t all be Lord Byron or William Shakespeare.

To help you out, we put together this cheat sheet of the 100 best love quotes to send as Happy Anniversary wishes in sweet messages to the love of your life.

50 Best Short Romantic Love Quotes For Him Or Her

Because we love love.

It’s sometimes difficult to find the right words in a world where so much has already been said. It seems like every feeling has already been felt.

Quite honestly, it makes me feel a bit unoriginal. But when your favorite person smiles at you from across a room, all that fades away. It’s you and them, and no existential question of, “Am I different from everyone else?” can stop the moment from happening.

People find new romantic words and sayings for love everyday — not to show off, but to express something that is their own.

The human experience is impossible to replicate, and thus the love quotes that make us feel something other than alone are the ones to hold on to.

People write to feel connected and we read to learn more about ourselves and others.

As John Green once said, “Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting.”

Maybe he’s right.

There are many theories on soulmates. My personal favorite is that there is one person for you in the world who is your 100%. Throughout life, you will meet 70’s and 80’s. If you’re lucky, you might end up with someone in the 90’s. And that’s good enough.

But there are a lot of people who are much less cynical than I who believe in people being connected by “the red string of fate”. They believe that life contains some magic that leads you exactly to who you’re meant to be with. It’s a hopeful perspective and one that I want to be true but we can never be sure.

The way people talk about the ones they love make me feel as though it might be. Maybe movies have gotten to my head; poets and songwriters have painted too pretty a picture of the world; or perhaps they know something I don’t. And I really hope to learn it one day.

If you are lucky enough to find your other half, these short, sweet love quotes are for you.

1. Love is worth it.

“I will never stop trying. Because when you find the one, you never give up.” —​ “Crazy Stupid Love”

2. You’re all I want.

“I never want to stop making memories with you.” — Pierre Jeanty

3. We contain a universe within ourselves.

“And in her smile I …

25 Sweet Ways To Say ‘I Love You’

How strong is your communication with your partner? Do you find that the two of you text, email, nod at and grunt in reply to each other more than you typically have meaningful conversations with each other?

Admittedly, we all get caught up in our busy day-to-day lives, and often it’s our most important communication, expressing our feelings of love for our partners, that pays the biggest price.

Why is finding new and different ways to say “I love you” so important in relationships?

When we forget to say those three little words — ‘I love you’ — often enough and with full sincerity, even in the form of note scrawled with one of the best, most inspiring love quotes you can find, our connection with each other begins to suffer.

The connection in the relationship may start to weaken so slowly that we don’t even notice as the distance continues growing.

In his New York Times Bestseller, The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, marriage expert Dr. Gary Chapman urges couples to learn how to express their love for each other in the forms their partner gives and receives love most naturally, be it through physical touch, gifts, acts of service or devotion, quality time, or words of affirmation.

In particular, he stresses one important communication skill related to words of affirmation that all too often gets overlooked in our fast-paced digital society — and that method of connection is the written word.

Think about it … love letters used to be epic! They were tied with ribbon, stored in boxes for decades, and passed down through generations.

Don’t worry, your expressions of love can be epic, too —whether written, verbal or through text message. 

Here are the best ways to say “I love you” in the most romantic, sweet and genuine ways. 

(Even one you can put on a post-it note and stick to the bathroom mirror.)

1. “If, out of time, I could pick one moment and keep it shining, always new, of all the days that I have lived, I’d pick the moment I met you.”

That will always be the moment my life changed.

2. “They say you only fall in love once, but that can’t be true … Every time I look at you, I fall in love all over again.”

Every day more and more.

3. “I love you

101 Romantic Quotes For People Who Are In Love

The best romantic quotes are those we want to share with the person we love because they seem to almost magically express the sweetest things they make us feel.

The beginning of true love, the falling in love part, gives us starry eyes and the feeling of butterflies in our stomachs. Being firmly and securely in love gives us someone who is our best friend — someone to dance and dine with, someone to adventures with.

Love makes us do things like this …

And as it grows, love gives us a confidante — that special someone to share our deepest, darkest secrets, highest hopes and wildest dreams with.

Love means always having someone around who understands us, even without having to tell them specifically what’s going on in our hearts and minds at any particular moment. Love means having someone who always put you first, even if you yourself don’t. And love assures us that we will never be alone.

It’s for these reasons we write or read sonnets and sing love songs. And it’s why we rounded up this collection of the best romantic love quotes for him or her from poets, authors, famous figures and lovers around the world.

Best Romantic Love Quotes For Him And Her

1. “The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.” — Victor Hugo

2. “There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.” ― Sarah Dessen, “The Truth About Forever”

3. “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” ― Dr. Seuss

50 Ocean Quotes For Everyone Who Loves The Beach

The sea speaks to the soul.

In some bizarre twist of fate or by design, human beings were created to live on the land of this planet. The bizarreness comes from the fact that the majority of Earth is covered in water and humans were not made to breathe when surrounded by wet liquid. So all we’re left to do is simply admire it.

Alright, maybe that’s not entirely true. We can swim, we can go diving, and heck, we even invented submarines. The human race has plenty of options to enjoy the water. Now if only the pressure wouldn’t kill us if we went too deep (and let’s not even think about the creatures that lie beneath…)

As it turns out, more than 80 percent of the ocean is still unexplored, with some estimates sitting at 5 percent of total exploration. Fun fact: more people have walked on the moon than dove into the Mariana Trench. The lack of a sense of adventure mostly comes from the extreme temperatures swings the farther down you go, the fact that it gets completely pitch-black and the pressure can be deadly.

So, unfortunately, we don’t really know much about the ocean, still. However, we do know what it looks like and how it can make us feel.

The ocean (or really any body of water) can stir up all sorts of feelings, not to mention it’s pretty much always Instagram-able.

Nothing’s more picturesque than a setting sun over the water, or the waves of the ocean. And for every good Instagram beach photo, you need the perfect beach quote or caption about the ocean to go with it.

Whether you head to the coast for a fun trip, if you’re planning a romantic beach vacation, or if you’re the type of person who can’t get enough of living by the water, there’s always something about the ocean that brings out the best of us. There can be something completely mystical and awe-inspiring, while at the same time soothing and relaxing. The feelings the beach gives us is something that can be hard to put into words, so allow these fine folks to do that for you.

Take a look below at some of the best ocean quotes about the beach that perfectly describe our obsession with the water, and use these words to bring you a sense of calm until the next …

4 Short Love Stories By Anton Chekhov + His Most Romantic Quotes

Russian writers know the beauty and pain of true love.

Remembered as one of the most skillful writers in Russian literature (and one of the most treasured among short story authors of any nationality), Anton Chekhov‘s skill was beyond compare. His romantic stories explored many themes, including infidelity and truth in love.

He made no apologies about the effect his writing had on people, and by the time of his death was considered second only to Tolstoy among the most influential Russian writers. As any writer will tell you, their lives influences are what shows up on the page.

It’s no wonder that Chekhov’s writing is admired by romance lovers everywhere. He had plenty of experience. His pursuit of love and romantic adventures with countless women started in his teenage years and a visit to a brothel in his hometown. Although he married in 1893, he continued his quest for love, passion, and romance. This influence shows up in Chekhov’s romantic short stories.

Though we may never know whether his experiences made their way into his writing, the stories are evocative and powerful. No clear self-portraits have been found in his short love stories, but we do know& that by the end of his lifetime, he fell in and out of love and had affairs with more than a dozen women before he died from complications of tuberculosis at the early age of 44.

His short stories are thought of as some of the best in the world, and for good reason.

Here are four of the most romantic short stories by Chekhov short stories, plus quotes that summarize what makes these stories (and love) so powerful.

What it’s about: Widely considered Chekhov’s best short story, The Lady with the Dog explores what happens to two people who fall truly in love for the first time, despite being married to others.

Favorite line from this love story: “Her expression, her gait, her dress, and the way she did her hair told him that she was a lady.”

My thoughts: In this short story, a Chekhov reveals his extraordinary insight into the mind of a married woman, and how a man can take advantage of her unhappiness in marriage.

Dimitri, the central character observes his next soon-to-be lover at the moment when she first walks into a dining room of a restaurant. The man who sees is also married …
