Love is unique, and for Valentine's Day, your Instagram caption celebrating it should be too. Whether you have a significant other to dedicate a post to or just want to celebrate the sanctity of ~love~, there are unique Valentine's Day Instagram captions that will speak volumes if you post one along with a sweet photo. Sure, a picture can say a thousand words. But it doesn't hurt to have a few extra to help fill out the ~feels~.

Love is a timeless subject. We've all fallen into it, or at least dipped our toes in it. We've read about it, watched it, sought advice for how to digest it — whether from a grandparent who had been married for over 50 years or from an inspirational and aesthetically-pleasing quote design on Pinterest.

Love, as many know, is something you want to shout from the mountain top when you find it. But in case you neither have a mountain range near you nor the appropriate footwear to tackle uphill slopes in February, there's always Instagram. Sometimes your post can reach further than your voice's echo from the top of a mountain.

"Love is, in fact, an intensification of life, a completeness, a fullness, a wholeness of life." - Thomas Merton

"Love, being in love, isn’t a constant thing. It doesn’t always flow at the same strength. It’s not always like a river in flood. It’s more like the sea. It has tides, it ebbs and flows. The thing is, when love is real, whether it’s ebbing or flowing, it’s always there, it never goes away." - Aidan Chambers

"Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope." - Maya Angelou

"At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet." - Plato
