Romance Quotes

Love reckons hours for months, and das for years; And every little absence is an age

John Dryden, Amphitryon

We are most alive when we're in love

John Updike

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

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

Romance is the poetry of literature.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Men always want to be a woman's first love. Women have a more subtle instinct: What they like is to be a man's last romance.

Oscar Wilde

You were made perfectly to be loved - and surely I have loved you, in the idea of you, my whole life long.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.

Thornton Wilder

You say that love is nonsense....I tell you it is no such thing. For weeks and months it is a steady physical pain, an ache about the heart, never leaving one, by night or by day; a long strain on one's nerves like toothache or rheumatism, not intolerable at any one instant, but exhausting by its steady drain on the strength.

Henry Adams

Love must not touch the marrow of the soul. Our affections must be breakable chains that we can cast them off or tighten them.

Euripides

Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists.... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.

Goncourt

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.

Erica Jong

To a person in love, the value of the individual is intuitively known. Love needs no logic for its mission.

Charles A. Lindbergh

Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.

William Shakespeare

Love is somthing that can not be explained - the force that drives us to protect the ones we care about.

Adam

Love won't be tampered with, love won't go away. Push it to one side and it creeps to the other.

Louise Erdrich

This was love at first sight, love everlasting: a feeling unknown, unhoped for, unexpected-in so far as it could be a matter of conscious awareness; it took entire possession of him, and he understood, with joyous amazement, that this was for life.

Thomas Mann

I think we dream so we don't have to be away from one another. If we're in each other's dreams, we'll always be together.

Hobbes

The world is no longer a romantic place. Some of its people still are however, and therein lies the promise. Don't let the world win.

John Cage

1. Romance is a state of mind. 2. Romance is an attitude. 3. Romance is about the little things- small loving gestures, hugs, saying "I love you" (and meaning it), and sincere compliments.

Gregory Godek

The romantic embrace can only be compared with music and with prayer.

Havelock Ellis

Flirting is the act of making a man feel pleased with himself.

Helen Rowland

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
