Meeting your Soulmate is one of the most profound experiences you will have in life. Subsequently, it can be hard to capture that emotion and put it in writing. We get the feeling that no one else has ever felt the way that we do at that moment. That’s true to a certain extent. However, everyone that meets a soulmate experiences a certain amount of intensity. We can begin to understand the depth of these emotions through the use of soulmate quotes.

Most people don’t know that we have more than one type of soulmate. We will have many in our lives, each helping us to learn a lesson or transition to a certain point on our path to finding our purpose. (If you’d like to understand more about the different types of soulmates, read this article.)

We’ve looked for the best quotes that encapsulate what it’s like to not only meet a soulmate but to have them in our lives thereafter. While these are geared more towards twin flame relationships, many work just as well with companion soulmates and sometimes, even karmic ones.

Let us know your favourite soulmate quotes below in the comments.

20 Soulmate quotes


“Love is but the discovery of ourselves in another, and the delight in the recognition.” – Alexander Smith



“A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes.

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.” – Elizabeth Gilbert


“Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you and then leave. A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your master…” – Elizabeth Gilbert

When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise.” – Richard Bach
