By Cassandra

There is something about waking up to romantic love quotes on Valentine's Day that puts a smile on my face. I've always secretly loved the idea of hiding post-its filled with heartfelt messages for your partner to find around the house. These romantic love quotes will definitely impress and excite your valentine!

1 Dr. Seuss

Dr. SeussSpoken by one of my favorite authors, these lovely words come together as one of the most romantic love quotes. Being able to say that you are truly happy and content with the person you treasure dearly is heartwarming. The idea of being happy with the life you have and the love you have to give only reaffirms just how powerful love really is.

2 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo EmersonThis next quote is truly quite charming. One of the reasons that I hold this line by the brilliant Ralph Waldo Emerson so close to me is because of its ambiguity. It can be taken as an ode to new beginnings or a sign that living in the past can never compare to being present with your true love.

3 Sarah Dessen

Sarah DessenI was introduced to this author by a friend and instantly fell in love with her after reading these words in her novel, The Truth About Forever. Love can be described as anything from accidental to coincidental because of the fact that you can't plan it.

4 Anonymous

AnonymousThere are so many variations of this anonymous quote and yet I still find myself wholeheartedly agreeing with the overall sentiment. You don't need a reason or a day to show someone how much you love them.

5 Pablo Neruda

Another Broken Egg,Tree of life,text,handwriting,font,Pablo Neruda always did have a phenomenal way with words. As an English major geek, I was immediately drawn to the overall structure of these powerful sentences. To love someone without being able (or needing to) to explain why is very humbling.

6 John Green

John GreenAfter reading the novel The Fault in Our Stars, who hasn't suffered an emotional breakdown at the hands of author John Green? This quote sits framed by my bed because of its pure and raw meaning. Love doesn't always have to be a huge force; it can impact you in a subtle way and still be just as moving and as beautiful.

7 Jodi Picoult

Jodi PicoultJodi Picoult has managed to capture love's true meaning in a single line. The existence of the “perfect” person to share your life with is such a subjective thought because there's no right or wrong way to define what these ideals are. Being with someone who truly cares about you and vice versa is enough, and just knowing that they love you should be enough.

11 Ed Sheeran

black,white,black and white,image,photography,Let's be real, you can take Ed Sheeran lyrics and create an everlasting supply of Valentine's Day cards.

One of my all-time favorite quotes (although there are many from him), is the lyric "All I want is the taste that your lips allow," from his single "Give Me Love." It's perfect to give your valentine to really show him how much you love him and how nothing beats being able to kiss him!
