Regardless of the stage of your relationship, it never hurts to tell your partner how much you care. Saying “I love you,” can be incredibly meaningful, but there are times when you might wish to say something more—and convey feelings that run deeper. Sharing a love quote with the woman you love can show that you’re taking the extra step to examine how you feel and searching for the perfect quote to encapsulate those emotions.

Another reason you may want to use a love quote for her? Most of us aren’t exactly poets. It can be hard to come up with the right thing to say so that it sounds beautiful, effortless, and heartfelt. If words don't come easily for you, it can be helpful to use a quote from a professional writer who knows a thing or two about love (and expressing it).

Love quotes from movies are also more than adequate. Movie lines and the gifted actors that express them know how to stir the heart, making them powerful and memorable. Using those words to tell her how you feel can duplicate that effect. And if you happen to choose a love quote from a movie (or song!) she adores? It will make the sharing that much sweeter. That's why passing along a love quote makes for the perfect gift—it doesn’t cost a thing, but it’s value is immense. 

Before we hit our favorite love quotes for her, read on for ways to share these meaningful words—and why it's important to do so in your relationship.

How to Share These Love Quotes for Her 

You may be borrowing lovely words to say, but there’s no reason why you can’t get creative when you decide how to share them. You might want to send a love quote in a text message or voice note while she’s away, or after a particularly rough day. They make the perfect "just thinking of you" message. 

Love quotes also work elegantly in a card or attached to a special gift or flower delivery. And what better way than to delightfully surprise her than by writing your favorite love quote on a playful post-it note? Place it on the coffee machine or the bathroom mirror to bring a smile in the morning to jumpstart her day—or before her head hits the pillow. However you choose to share your love quote is sure to make her feel thought of and cherished. 

Why Using Love Quotes Is Important in Relationships

A love quote is always a good idea if you want your significant other to feel seen, but there are times when they can truly enhance aspects of your relationship. For instance, if you’ve been together for a while, love quotes can keep the spark alive—or reinvigorate it. If things are new, on the other hand, a love quote can cement your feelings and affirm how much you appreciate your partner. They can even assist you in taking your relationship to the next level, especially if finding the right words to say out loud feels tough.

No matter the reason, thoughtful words are always a bonus in a relationship. Below are 52 love quotes for her that she is sure to adore.
