Romance Quotes

Romance is the poetry of literature.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

He loved the twilight that surrounds The border-land of old romance; Where glitter hauberk, helm, and lance, And banner waves, and trumpet sounds, And ladies ride with hawk on wrist, And mighty warriors sweep along, Magnified by the purple mist, The dusk of centuries and of song.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Parent of golden dreams, Romance! Auspicious queen of childish joys, Who lead'st along, in airy dance, Thy votive train of girls and boys.

Lord Byron

Romance and novel paint beauty in colors more charming than nature, and describe a happiness that humans never taste. How deceptive and destructive are those pictures of consummate bliss

Goldsmith, Oliver

Romance like a ghost escapes touching; it is always where you are not, not where you are. The interview or conversation was prose at the time, but it is poetry in the memory.

Curtis, George William

O for the gentleness of old Romance, the simple planning of a minstrel's song!

John Keats

Jessica Simpson

Honore De Balzac

And what's romance? Usually, a nice little tale where you have everything as you like It, where rain never wets your jacket and gnats never bite your nose and it's always daisy-time

D H Lawrence

Romance, like the rabbit at the dog track, is the elusive, fake, and never attained reward which, for the benefit and amusement of our masters, keeps us running and thinking in safe circles

Beverly Jones

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance

Oscar Wilde

Bookstores see a book by a woman and they put it in the romance section.

Barbara Taylor Bradford

For me, romance isn't an over-the-top act. It's someone offering to help and to support me. Or if that person thinks I'm making the wrong decision, he'll tell me. I want him to be honest, because being that honest takes a lot of guts.
