Valentine’s Day is often a time to show love and gratitude to the people you care about, whether it be your significant other, your friends, or your family. Although you can buy gifts, you might also want to write a love note to your special someone this Valentine’s Day. Fear not; we have writers, poets, painters, novelists, and actors as inspiration if you’re unsure of how to communicate all those pleasant, fuzzy feelings.

Let these Valentine’s Day quotations serve as your inspiration for telling the people you care about how much they mean to you, whether their words precisely express what you want to say or they inspire you to write your own poem.
