Best Love Quotes

best love quotesLove. The word evokes different feelings, meanings and emotions for everyone. Trying to define “love” has been at the forefront of many writer’s mission for centuries. Some of the best love quotes come from literature and here DJ Connection has gathered some of the best love quotes in literary history:

“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking."

Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy

 

"You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”

Gone With The Wind, Margaret Mitchell

 

"When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are to become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No ... don't blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in 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, Louis de Bernieres

 

"I wonder by my troth, what thou and I Did, till we loved? were we not weaned till then?"

The Good Morrow, John Donne

 

“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you."

Persuasion, Jane Austen

 

"She is a mortal danger to all men. She is beautiful without knowing it, and possesses charms that she's not even aware of. She is like a trap set by nature - a sweet perfumed rose in whose petals Cupid lurks in ambush! Anyone who has seen her smile has known perfection. She instills grace in every common thing and divinity in every careless gesture. Venus in her shell was never so lovely, and Diana in the forest never so graceful as my Lady when she strides through Paris!"

Cyrano de Bergerac, Edmond Rostand

 

"I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough."

The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks

 

“You and I, it’s as though we have been taught to kiss in heaven and sent down to earth together, to see if we know what we were taught.”

Doctor Zhivago, Boris Pasternak

 

"I have waited for this opportunity for more than half a century, to repeat to you once again my vow of eternal fidelity and everlasting love."

Love In The Time of Cholera, Gabriel Garcia Marquez

 

"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte

 

"He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning-fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips' touch she blossomed for him like a flower and the incarnation was complete."

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

“I cannot let you burn me up, nor can I resist you. No mere human can stand in a fire and not be consumed.”

Possession, A.S. Byatt

 

“It has made me better loving you ... it has made me wiser, and easier, and brighter. I used to want a great many things before, and to be angry that I did not have them. Theoretically, I was satisfied. I flattered myself that I had limited my wants. But I was subject to irritation; I used to have morbid sterile hateful fits of hunger, of desire. Now I really am satisfied, because I can’t think of anything better.”

The Portrait of a Lady, Henry James

 

It is better to love wisely, no doubt: but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all.”

Vanity Fair, William Makepeace Thackeray

 

"Doubt thou the stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love."

Hamlet, William Shakespeare
