Best love quotes, poems, songs and sayings just in time for Valentine’s Day

Ewan McGregor gives me goose bumps every time with this song.   Ugh.  Ok, so this isn’t an exhaustive list of all things love, but “Some of the best…” didn’t sound as catchy as a title.  As you all know, Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I think it’s a great time to remember how much fun we can have with a love theme.  There’s all kinds of love, as you know- so I’m not just talking about the “make-out” version.  It just a good time of year to tell people that you love them.  So feel free to use any or all of the following collection for Facebook posts, tweets and handwritten notes on Valentine’s Day or any day.

I know there a ton I’ve missed, so let me know in the comments below what love quotes, songs and sayings should be on this list.

…And if you don’t already I know…  I love you.  Thanks for being here.


True love begins when nothing is looked for in return.  ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

You know you are in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. ~Dr Suess

If you have love, you don’t need to have anything else. If you don’t have it, it doesn’t matter much what else you have  ~James M. Barri

Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.  ~Robert Heinlein

Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.  ~Franklin Jones

You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.  ~Albert Einstein

Better to have loved and lost than never have loved at all.  ~Hemmingway

The more I think about it, the more I realize there is nothing more artistic that to love others.  ~Vincent van Gogh

I love you, not only for what you are, But for what I am when I am with you.  ~Roy Croft

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.  ~George Sand

I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words, how wonderful life is while you’re in the world.  ~Elton John

You make me feel so young.  You make me feel like spring has sprung.  ~Frank Sinatra

It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them. ~Agatha Christie

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever. ~Alfred Lord Tennyson

Love makes the wildest spirit tame, and the tamest spirit wild. ~Alexis Delp

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. ~Helen Keller

I love you, not only for what you are, But for what I am when I am with you. ~Roy Croft

Love reminds you that nothing else matters. ~Amy Bushell

I don’t wish to be everything to everyone, but I would like to be something to someone. ~Javan

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are.

Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.  ~Louis de Berniere
