Love is an attempt to change a piece of a dream-world into reality

Henry David Thoreau

The reduction of the universe to a single being, the expansion of a single being even to God, this is love.

Victor Hugo

Who, being loved, is poor?

Oscar Wilde

I would have rummaged, ransacked at the word; Those old odd corners of an empty heart; For remnants of dim love the long disused, And dusty crumbling of romance!

Robert Browning

Romanticism is not just a mode; it literally eats into every life. Women will never get rid of just waiting for the right man

Brookner, Anita

No age seemed the age of romance to itself

Carlyle, Thomas

Rather would I have the love songs of romantic ages, rather Don Juan and Madame Venus, rather an elopement by ladder and rope on a moonlight night, followed by the father's curse, mother's moans, and the moral comments of neighbors, than correctness and propriety measured by yardsticks

Goldman, Emma

She who makes her husband and her children happy, who reclaims the one from vice, and trains up the other to virtue, is a much greater character than the ladies described in romance, whose whole occupation is to murder mankind with shafts from their quiver or their eyes.

Goldsmith, Oliver

O happy hours when I may once more encircle within these arms the dearest object of my love- when I shall again feel the pressure of that 'aching head' which will delight to recline upon my bosom, when I may again press to my heart which palpitates with the purest affection that loved one who has so long shared its undivided devotion

Alexander Hamilton Rice

You're nothing short of my everything.

Ralph Block

All that you are, all that I owe to you, justifies my love

Marquis de Lafayette

I cannot exist without you. I am forgetful of everything but seeing you again. My life seems to stop there, I see no further. You have absorb'd me. I have a sensation at the present moment as though I were dissolving. I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for religion... I have shudder'd at it... I shudder no more. I could be martyr'd for my religion: Love is my religion. I could die for that. I could die for you. My creed is love, and you are its only tenet. You have ravish'd me away by a power I cannot resist

John Keats

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

Paul, 1 Corinthians

Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile

Franklin P. Jones

I am in the night. There is a being who has gone away and carried the heavens with her

Victor Hugo, Saint Denis

She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older - the natural sequence of an unnatural beginning.

Jane Austen

I only wish to be the fountain of love from which you drink, every drop promising eternal passion.

Anonymous

Absence lessens half-hearted passions, and increases great ones, as the wind puts out candles and yet stirs up the fire.

Duc de la Rouchefoucauld

Soul meets soul on lovers lips.

Percy Shelley

Why love if losing hurts so much÷ I have no answers anymore÷ only the life I have lived÷ The pain now is part of the happiness then.

Anthony Hopkins

If thou must love me, let it be for nought Except for love's sake only. Do not say, I love her for her smile . . . her look . . . her way Of speaking gently . . . for a trick of thought That falls in well with mine, and, certes, brought A sense of pleasant ease on such a day- For these things in themselves, Beloved, may be changed, or change for thee- and love so wrought, May be unwrought so.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
