Whether you and your partner have found domestic bliss, or you’re looking to bring a little spark back to your long-term relationship, an inspirational quote can come in handy. Here are some relationship quotes to affirm your love, rekindle a flame, or just send to your sweetheart on a rainy day. 

1. “In the end, there doesn’t have to be someone who understands you. There just has to be someone who wants to.”

Robert Brault

2. “A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself — to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.”

Leo F. Buscaglia

3. Relationships — of all kinds — are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.”

Kaleel Jamison

4. “A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.”

Honore de Balzac

5. “Some think love can be measured by the amount of butterflies in their tummy. Others think love can be measured in bunches of flowers, or by using the words ‘forever.' But love can only truly be measured by actions. It can be a small thing, such as peeling an orange for a person you love because you know they don't like doing it.”

Marian Keyes

6. “Don't smother each other. No one can grow in the shade.”

Leo F. Buscaglia

7. “Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.”

Anthony Robbins

8. “Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and finding that that's okay with them.”

Alain de Botton

9. “If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”

A.A Milne

13. “True love is your soul’s recognition of its counterpart in another.”

John, From Wedding Crashers

14. “We loved with a love that was more than love.”

Edgar Allen Poe

15. “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

Lao Tzu

16. “Love is a two-way street constantly under construction.”

Carroll Bryant

17. “Happily ever after is not a fairy tale — it’s a choice.”

Fawn Weaver

18. “Maybe you don’t need the whole world to love you. Maybe you just need one person.”

Kermit the Frog

19. “Love is something eternal; the aspect might change, but not the essence.”

Vincent van Gogh

Cornel West

Helen Keller

24. “The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but to hold hands.”

Alexandra Penney

25. “Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand in hand.”

Emily Kimbrough

26. “Trouble is part of your life, and if you don’t share it, you don’t give the person who loves you enough chance to love you enough.”

Dinah Shore

27. “To know when to go away and when to come closer is the key to any lasting relationship.”

Domenico Cieri Estrada

Charles Dickens

Wiz Khalifa

37. “Every couple needs to argue now and then. Just to prove that the relationship is strong enough to survive. Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys.”

Nicholas Sparks

38. “It’s a humbling thing when you find someone to love. Even better if you’ve been waiting your whole life.”

John Keats

In any long-term relationship, you’ll need a little elbow grease to keep the romance alive. Remember to maintain the lines of communication, and remind your significant other how important they are to you on a regular basis. Sometimes, sending them a sweet remark or pointed quote is the perfect way to let them know you’re glad to be in it for the long haul.
