Romantic Literary Quotes

I love that Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year. It feels like this whole week is building up to it and then we get to celebrate it for the whole weekend! To keep my love themed posts going for this week; I’ve rounded up ten beautiful quotes from various literatures. Feel free to add your own favourites :-).


“The first time you fall in love, it changes you forever and no matter how hard you try, that feeling just never goes away.” (The Notebook)

“We are all fools in love.” (Pride and Prejudice)

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep, your eyes close.” (Sonnet XXVI, Pablo Neruda)

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” (Wuthering Heights)

“I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.” (Sonnet 43, Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

“I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.” (Great Expectations)

“I’ve never had a moment’s doubt. I love you. I believe in you completely. You are my dearest one. My reason for life.” (Atonement)

“Did my heart love ’til now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” (Romeo and Juliet)

“Hearts are not to be had as a gift, hearts are to be earned.” (W.B. Yeats)

“When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides…For that is just being love; Which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away. Doesn’t sound very exciting, does it? But it is!” (Captain Corelli’s Mandolin)
