Romantic Literary Quotes to make you go "Aww"

I don't know why, but I'm feeling particularly smushy today so prepare to be overcome with romance as you read the following- some of my all time favourite romantic literary/movie quotes!



 “Because,” he said, “I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you—especially when you are near me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame.  And if that boisterous Channel, and two hundred miles or so of land come broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapt; and then I’ve a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly". Mr Rochester to Jane Eyre (people really need to make more declarations of love involving the words "bleeding inwardly", I feel).

"Every atom of your flesh is as dear to me as my own: in pain and sickness it would still be dear". -Jane Eyre.

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.

 "What did my arms do before they held you?" -Sylvia Plath (poor old Sylvia, wha?)

"I've never had a moments doubt. I love you. I believe in you completely. You are my dearest one. My reason for life".- Atonement

"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same"- Cathy, Wuthering heights.



“When he shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars, and he will make the face of heaven so fine that the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun.” ― Juliet

"How doth my lady? For nothing can be ill if she be well". -Romeo, seconds before everything went really unwell.

"When I first met her, I knew in a moment I would have to spend the next few days re-arranging my mind so there'd be room for her to stay"- The Great Gatsby. Swoon.

And eh, lastly..


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.- Ahem, Winnie the pooh.

  3. Aw! I love that Pooh quote. I have actually never read Jane Eyre! That one from Atonement is brilliant too. My favourite Bronte one was the "you have bewitched me, body & soul" from Pride & Prejudice but I think it was changed from the book?

    1. It's such a lovely quote isn't it? I'm always surprised that it's Winnie the Pooh cause it's so unexpectedly romantic!

  6. I adore Winnie the Pooh quotes!

    My favourite romantic movie quote has to be from Notting Hill where Julia Roberts says: "I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." So simple and yet so perfect - melts my heart every time!

  7. Romance is the deepest thing in life. It is deeper than reality.
