It would be fair to say that everyone would like to experience a bit of romance at some point in their lives and have someone declare their love for them. The feeling of love is something that can be difficult to express in words, but when people try, it sometimes results in something quite beautiful. Love poems and quotes are an amazing way to express your love to others, especially if you find it difficult with finding your own words. Here are some of our favourite romantic quotes ever to be captured in words.

“There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you – of kindness and consideration and respect – not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had.” John Steinbeck

I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars
