Seven 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 six years, I’ve shared a few from the book around the holidays.

What I really want to do with my life – what I want to do for a living – is I want to be with your daughter.
I’m good at it.
Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar:
but never doubt I love.
William Shakespeare, Hamlet
The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough of is love.
Being with you and not being with you is the only way I have to measure time.
Jorge Luis Borges
You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired.
You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing.
But love doesn’t make sense! You can’t logic your way into or out of it. Love is totally nonsensical. But we have to keep doing it or else we’re lost, and love is dead and humanity should pack it in.
Because love is the best thing we do.
How I Met Your Mother
That’s when you know for sure somebody loves you. They figure out what you need and they give it to you – without you asking.
Adriana Trigiani, Very Valentine
My only nightmare is waking up in a world where you’re not mine.
With my last breath, I’ll exhale my love for you. I hope it’s a cold day, so you can see what you meant to me.
Jarod Kintz, This Is The Best Book I’ve Ever Written, And It Still Sucks
Woman is sacred; the woman one loves is holy.
Alexandre Dumas, The Count Of Monte Cristo
