Valentine’s Day has just passed and, hopefully, everyone I know had a day spent with the love of their life! I know I did.
Thinking about V-day always makes me think of great book quotes about love, relationships, the future. Here are seven of my favorite romantic quotes from books.
Darcy to Elizabeth: “In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
GONE WITH THE WIND. A Southern bad boy loves spoiled Southern belle by Margaret Mitchell.
Rhett to Scarlett: “You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”
TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE. A memoir of love, loss, and growing old by Mitch Albom.
“I like myself better when I’m with you.
WINNIE THE POOH. Everyone’s favorite Pooh bear by A.A. Milne.
“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you.”
STOP ALL THE CLOCKS, by poet W.H. Auden
( and this quote was made famous when it was recited in the movie Four Weddings and a funeral.)
“He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.”
Love Poems by Robert Browning.
NEW YORK TO DALLAS.Part of the InDeath series by JD Robb, and my personal favorite book in the collections.
Roarke to Eve Dallas, after she’s been in the physical fight of her life with a serial murderer and rapist. Eve is bloody, has a black eye and is filled with cuts, stab wounds, and bruises. She states to Dr. Mira ( after Mira gives her a painkiller that makes her loopy) “I’m not pretty. ” Roarke, standing in a corner tells her, “You are the most beautiful woman ever born.”
