Quotes for Long Distance Relationships
Distance gives us a reason to love harder.
Together forever, never apart. Sometimes in distance, but never in heart.
Hearing your voice is far better than you touching me. Because even though I yearn for your skin to touch mine, it is your voice that touches my soul.
When two hearts are meant for each other, no distance is too far, no time too long and no other love can break them apart.
In human relationships, distance is not measured in miles but in affection. Two people can be right next to each other, yet miles apart.
Distance means so little, when someone means so much.

Blow ‘o wind to where my loved one is. Touch him and come touch me soon. I’ll feel his gentle touch through you and meet his beauty in the moon. These things are much for the one who loves. One can live by them alone: that he and I breathe the same air and that the earth we tread is one.
When I don’t see you, I don’t miss you, I just place my hand over my heart and it's there I will find you, because even though you are out of my sight, you will never be out of my heart.
— Rashida Rowe
Forget the miles, forget them. You’ll be there and I’ll be here, and it’ll just be long distance. And that’ll be okay, because quite frankly I’m crazy about you.
— Going the Distance
I love no one but you, I have discovered, but you are far away and I am here alone. Then this is my life and maybe, however unlikely, I’ll find my way back there. Or maybe, one day, I’ll settle for second best. And on that same day, hell will freeze over, the sun will burn out and the stars will fall from the sky.
— Lemony Snicket
There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.
It is a risk to love. What if it doesn’t work out? Ah, but what if it does.
— Peter McWilliams
I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)
— E.E. Cummings
