Romantic Quotes

What would you do if given a few precious moments with the one person who makes you feel alive; that beloved who can simply swipe away a dark cloud of despair? Perhaps you would hold hands and sit atop a grand mountain, or look into each other's eyes to find a promising future. And if you're of the more tender-hearted kind, maybe you would recite a few lines from a Pablo Neruda poem or relive a scene from a Jane Austen novel. Love and romance have always made up an integral part of our lives. At the end of a tiring day, all you want to do is come back to the one you yearn for. Most often the sole intention in life is to keep the flame in our relationships alive. It is love that wards off all scope of depression and loneliness, thus becoming the reason why we cherish this sentiment above most others. Love brings us face-to-face with unprecedented experience irrespective of age and when someone puts this inexplicable feeling in black and white, they constitute what we can call 'love-writ'. And so, we bring to you a plethora of romantic quotes from the pages of literary works, the unfathomable depths of history, unforgettable movies and the lives of real people, amongst many more.
