By Christy Piña and Elizabeth Berry

Throughout your life, relationships will come and go. There will be life-changing romances and meaningful friendships that last a lifetime. Of course, there will also be toxic situations, painful breakups, and grief after you fall out of touch with a friend. These relationships teach you more about yourself and about powerful, sometimes elusive, love. Relationship quotes can help you navigate these complex emotions and put into words how much a person means to you, whether you are dating someone new, looking for a sweet love message to celebrate a milestone anniversary, or searching for a way to tell a close friend, "I miss you. "

No one said relationships are easy. You may feel nervous energy around a new person you have big feelings for. Your relationship may have just become long-distance and you are struggling to find ways to tell your significant other that you are thinking of them. Or maybe you are looking for the perfect Valentine's Day quote that encapsulates all you and your partner have been through and learned throughout the years (or even decades). That's where the best relationships quotes come in, to help you say the things you want to say but don't have the words for, as well as express your love in new and profound ways.

These relationship quotes are words to turn back to when you meet a new flame or are looking for sage advice about love. Let the words of poets, authors, philosophers, and actors help you feel seen, heard, comforted, and, most importantly, less alone.
