No matter how you and your partner plan on spending Valentine's Day, chances are, there's a social media post in the forecast. Taking the time and the square space to declare your love online is a perfectly thematic and romantic thing to do, but sometimes it can be hard to find the right words to say in a Valentine's Day Instagram caption.

Particularly if you're not big on overly-personal public posts, your best bet is something literary or psychologically profound but also relatable, honorable, and romantic. When you're in a relationship, whether it's new or old, it's good to show your partner a little love and make them feel seen, heard, and special. If receiving a dedicated post on social media makes you happy, return the favor and put the spotlight on your partner.

Below, you'll find 23 quotes to choose from. Once you've picked a quote for your post, you can use a remaining quote for your card (if card-writing is on your least favorite things to do list, too). Don't worry, your secret is safe.

Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.” - Leo F. Buscaglia

10. “Love doesn’t make the world go around. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” - Franklin P. Jones
