French is often called the language of love and some of the best well-known French romantic sayings are used the world over even as universal language. Je t’aime is known universally as the French way of saying “I love you,” and there are many more French phrases you can use to make clear how you feel about someone you love.

• Le prix d’Amour, c’est seulement Amour, … Il faut aimer si l’on veut être aimé. This famous quote, written by Honoré d’ Urfé, can be translated as follows: The price of love is only love, … one must love if one desires to be loved.
• Aimer, ce n’est pas se regarder l’un l’autre, c’est regarder ensemble dans la même direction.This famous quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is almost as famous as his quotes from Le petit prince. This quote means: Love does not consist in looking at each other, but rather in, together, looking in the same direction.
• Pour toujours et à jamais: “Forever and for always” – this phrase can be used on its own or can be written after saying je t’aime, changing the expression into “I’ll love you forever.”
• Amour de ma vie: “Love of my life,” this is a common phrase for expressing that someone is perfect for you. Often the word amour is replaced by the word for woman or man so that it reads: (you are) the man/woman of my life. This may sound a bit strange in English, but in French it is somewhat equivalent to saying that someone is your soul mate (âme-sœur).
• Toujours dans mon cœur: “Always in my heart.” Again, this phrase can be used as an inscription on its own or you can make it into a sentence. For example: Tu es toujours dans mon cœur(You are always in my heart) or Je voulais que tu saches que tu es toujours dans mon cœur (I wanted you to know that you are always in my heart).
• À toi, pour toujours: A great way to end a letter or to sign a card, this translates to: Forever yours, and makes a big impact in French.
