Delirium by Lauren Oliver 
“Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a word no bigger or longer than an edge. That’s what it is: an edge; a razor. It draws up through the center of your life, cutting everything in two. Before and after. The rest of the world falls away on either side.”

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
“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.”

Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith
“People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks, but most of the time all we let each other see is is a postcard glimpse of a skyline or a polished square. Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves.”

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater … The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.”

Your Personal Penguin by Sandra Boynton
“I like you a lot. You’re funny and kind. So let me explain what I have in mind. I want to be your personal penguin.I want to walk right by your side. I want to be your personal penguin. I want to travel with you far and wide.” 

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
“For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.”

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
“You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.”

Lament: The Faerie Queen’s Deception by Maggie Stiefvater
“You’re like a song that I heard when I was a little kid but forgot I knew until I heard it again.”

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
“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.”

Dr Zhivago by Boris Pasternak
“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.”

Stardust (2007)
“I see the way that mankind loves… You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and… I never imagined I’d know it for myself. My heart… It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it’s trying to escape because it doesn’t belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange – no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.”

Nights in Rodanthe (2008)
“When I sleep, I dream of you, and when I wake, I long to hold you in my arms. If anything, our time apart has only made me more certain that I want to spend my nights by your side, and my days with your heart.”

Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
“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.”

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

Midnight Days by Neil Gaiman
“When we hold each other, in the darkness, it doesn’t make the darkness go away. The bad things are still out there. The nightmares still walking. When we hold each other we feel not safe, but better. “It’s all right” we whisper, “I’m here, I love you.” and we lie: “I’ll never leave you.” For just a moment or two the darkness doesn’t seem so bad.”

Dr Seuss
“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

Hamlet by William Shakespeare 
“Doubt thou that the stars are fire; doubt thou that the sun doth move; doubt the truth to be a lie, but never doubt I love”.

Rabbi Ben Ezra by Robert Browning
“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be.”

Roy Croft
“I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you, not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me.”

Robert Brault
“To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness.” 

Anonymous
“A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you.”

Maya Angelou
“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

Fawn Weaver
“Walking with your hands in mine and mine in yours, that’s exactly where I want to be always.”

The Bridge Across Forever by Richard Bach
“A soul mate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise. Our soul mate is someone who shares our deepest longings, our sense of direction. When we’re two balloons, and together our direction is up, chances are we’ve found the right person.”

John Steinbeck
“If it is right, it happens—the main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.”
