Every year on February 14th, people honor their love for one another by spending time together, having a lovely dinner, sending flowers and sharing love messages.

Love — the feeling that shows us someone at their most raw form; the feeling that exalts and brings out the best in us…

Of course, showing our love and appreciation is something we should do as often as possible, not just once a year. Let’s just say that Valentine’s Day is yet another opportunity to make things better and celebrate this crazy little thing called love. So on this day, go ahead and buy the flowers, the chocolate or whatever cute stuff you want to use to show your appreciation. But also pick a card and start writing from the heart. This will eventually weigh more than all the other small surprises that will cheer up your spouse.

Sometimes words don’t come easy when it comes to expressing our emotions in beautiful ways, but don’t worry. Some of the world’s most famous authors have written just enough I love you quotes that you can bookmark and use for inspiration. Part of the sayings you’ll find below are love quotes for him, some are for her, and some are about love in general.

Before diving into them, maybe you’d like to find out some of the legends behind St. Valentine’s Day. According to the most popular one, Valentine was a roman priest. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers, he outlawed marriage for young men.

The priest defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret, fact that led to his death once his actions were discovered.

Another one says that Valentine was a prisoner who fell in love with his jailor’s daughter. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression we still use today.

For this special day, we decided to spare you the effort to search for the perfect quote and prepared a list of 37 love quotes that you can share with your significant one. Pick your favorite and spread the love!

Here are 37 love quotes to share with the one you love:
