~ My favorite romantic one-liners ~
All love is sweet, given or returned.
~Percy Bysshe Shelly~
Love distils desire upon the eyes, love brings bewitching grace into the heart.
Two souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one.
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight of recognition.
Love is the beauty of the soul.
What I do and what I dream include thee, as the wine must taste of its own grapes.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning~
But to see her was to love her, love but her, and love her forever.
When love reigns the impossible may be attained.
To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.
A life without love is like a year without summer.
Love is a beautiful dream.
All mankind love a lover.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
A caress is better than a career.
Each moment of a happy lover's hour is worth an age of dull and common life.
There is no heaven like mutual love.
Talking of love is making it.
The quarrels of lovers are the renewal of love.
Love can turn the cottage into a golden palace.
When the heart clings to a lover, who cares what caste he be?
When two hearts are one, even the king cannot separate them.
Love conquers all things: Let us too give in to love.
With you I should love to live, with you be ready to die.
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.
~Song of Solomon~
Love cometh like sunshine after rain.
Love is never having to say you're sorry.
~Erich Segal Love Story~
No cord nor cable can so forcibly draw, or hold so fast, as love can do with a twined thread.
Oh, what a dear ravishing thing is the beginning of an amour!
No, there's nothing half so sweet in life as love's young dream.
Love doesn't just lay there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; re-made all the time, made new.
~Ursula K. Leguin~
A noble hunger, long unsatisfied, met at last its proper food.
~C.S. Lewis on falling in love~
Love looks not with eyes, but with the mind.
Love must blossom. Through love will grow the trees and the bushes.
~Joost van der Vondel~
There is a name hidden in the shadow of my soul, where I read it night and day and no other eye sees it.
~Alphonse de Lamartine~
Without love, I should be spiritless.
You had my heart, and I yours; a heart for a heart, good fortune for good fortune.
Since we shall love each other, I shall be great and you shall be rich.
Your heart is mine; there I reign. I am content.
~Pierre de Corneille~
Love guides the stars towards each other, the world plan endures only through love.
~J.C.F. von Schiller~
One glance, one word from you gives more pleasure than all the wisdom of this world.
~J.W. von Goethe~
Love and the gentle heart are but the same thing.
Let your heart melt toward me, just as the ice that melts in spring leaves no trace of its chill.
He who shall never be divided from me kissed my mouth all trembling.
