Six years ago, I created a homemade book for my wife with all these quotes about Love from our favorite TV Shows and movies and books and then I added to it great quotes about love from history or just great quotes about love from anyone. For the past five years, I’ve shared a few from the book around the holidays.

One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.
What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
The very essence of romance is uncertainty.
Oscar Wilde, The Importance Of Being Earnest And Other Plays
And I guess I realized at that moment that I really did love her. Because there was nothing to gain, and that didn’t matter.
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
My heart, it feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like 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.
I want you. All of you. Your flaws. Your mistakes. Your imperfections. I want you, and only you.
A true relationship is two imperfect people refusing to give up on each other.
Love and hope can conquer hate.
Give a man a ball, he will be happy for a day.
Give a man a woman, he’ll be happy for a night.
Give a man a woman who loves football, he will be happy for life!
I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.
And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.
Kiersten White, The Chaos Of Stars
You’re my everything. Everything else is just… everything else.
