Romance Quotes

Water . . . which, though not absolutely necessary to a beautiful composition, yet occurs so often, and is so capital a feature, that is is always regretted when wanting; and no large place can be supposed, a little spot can hardly be imagined in which it may not be agreeable; it accommodates itself to every situation; is the most interesting object in a landscape, and the happiest circumstance in a retired recess; captivates the eye at a distance; invites approach, and is delightful when near; it refreshes an open exposure; it animates a shade; cheers the dreariness of a waste, and enriches the most crowded view; in form, in style, and in extent, may be made equal to the greatest compositions, or adapted to the least; it may spread in a calm expanse to sooth the tranquillity of a peaceful scene; or hurrying along a devious course, add splendor to a gay, and extravagance to a romantic situation.

Thomas Whately

Luigina Lollobrigida

So I step out of the shower, and I look out the window, and I notice the garbage man looking right in at me. So I say, 'Did you get a good look?' and he says, 'Not completely, turn around.' Then he smiled and he was missing a tooth, and that's when the romance went right out of it.

Peri Gilpin

No matter where you go, however far away, a part of me will be with you and a part of you, with me, will stay But to see her was to love her, love but her, and love her forever As for me, to love you alone, to make you happy, to do nothing which would contradict your wishes, this is my destiny and the meaning of my life.

But you realize, love should ALWAYS start as friendship. If you can't be friends first, then love is USELESS. And I will be adamant about this fact. Lovers must be best friends. If you ask me, if you ask a married couple who their best friends are, and they reply someone OTHER than their spouse, their marriage will fail. Friends first. Always.
