Top 10 Incredibly Romantic Quotes by Donna Fasano

ro mance

noun –
a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.
a quality or feeling of mystery, excitement, or remoteness from every day life.

verb –
court; woo.
another term for romanticize.

Most women crave it. Most men are either scared of it or think it's a waste of time. That's why women turn, again and again, to romance novels. Love stories satisfy that need for excitement and mystery.

I've searched out some entertaining quotes about romance. Enjoy!


"I love your feet because they have wandered over the earth and through the wind and water until they brought you to me." ~Pablo Neruda (Sounds like Pablo might have had a bit of a foot fetish. Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

"Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get, only with what you are expecting to give—which is everything." ~Katharine Hepburn (Ah, Ms Hepburn… beautiful and wise.)

"I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life. " ~Rita Rudner (I used this quote in The Merry-Go-Round.)

"We loved with a love that was more than love." ~Edgar Allan Poe's Annabell Lee (Okay, this is a tad cheesy and if my husband ever said this to me I would respond, "Huh?".)

"Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all of the time, made new." ~Ursula K. Le Guin (This quote appealed to the cook in me, AND for the fact that it's true.)

"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same." ~Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights (Ah, Heathcliff. *drool*)

"I don't wish to be everything to everyone, but I would like to be something to someone." ~Unknown (That's not asking for too much, is it?)

"Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it." ~Swedish Proverb (Damn right!)

"Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze." ~Elinor Glyn (THIS is what I try to capture in my romance novels.)

And lastly, although I am a romance author and I love happy endings, this quote touched my heart.

"True love stories never have endings." ~Richard Bach

  3. Wonderful quotes, my favorite is Elinor Glyn's. Just love that. It's interesting that three of the quotes are from men. I believe men can be very romantic. Look at the romantic poets, so many of them are men. I like my heroes to make sweet romantic gestures to show they care.

    1. It's certainly a fact that men can be very romantic, Helen, and many of them read and enjoy books labeled 'Romantic,' though they usually don't talk a lot about it.

    2. I agree! This might be hard to believe, but I've received fan mail from men. One man wrote to say he read my books to his wife before they went to sleep at night. How sweet is that? I loved it!

    3. That is lovely, Donna. My hubby reads romance sometimes, or should I say listens to it as he mainly has audiobooks. He's on the road a lot so listens while he drives.

    4. Helen, I think that's great! I wish my guy would read romance. He's a scientist-type...only reads non-fiction. *sigh* But I still find his Einstein-ish-ness very sexy. lol

  5. What an interesting selection. I have a second hand book by Elinor Glyn given to me by a friend years ago, which I've never got round to reading – although I've often thought I'd like to read some of her stuff, just to see what it's actually like. I was planning to give it to a Charity Shop in a spring clean, but now I think I'll keep it and actually read it!

  10. Fabulous selection of romantic quotes! My fav would have to be the one by Rita Rudner! My hubby and I are always teasing each other and have fun. I wouldn't have it any other way!

    1. The teasing and fun relationships are the best, I say. My husband and I tease each other a lot...or rather, I laugh at him and he tolerates it. LOL

  11. I just want to mention THE WORST EVER romantic quote--"Love is never having to say you're sorry."
    YUCK. When you're in love, all you do is say --sorry. Nobody's that perfect! And since I'm working on 40 years with my true love-I ought to know!

    1. Congratulations on approaching the 40 year mark, Lyn. My hubby and I have just had our 30th wedding anniversary. Time goes by so fast...

      Delete
    2. I so agree with you Lyn! That quote is one of my all time pet peeves!
      Wow - 40 years with your true love? May you be blessed with many, many more decades of joy!
