Do you love LOVE? I do! by Donna Fasano @DonnaFaz #SweetRomance

I love love. My heart melts when I see couples exchange romantic gestures. Most romance readers and writers feel the same. It’s that attraction to the more tender emotions that have us dreaming about characters who fall hopelessly, head-over-toes in love. 

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. And it’s the one day that offers us romantics the chance to go all out and show those we love how they feel without needing to apologize. So go for it! Release your inner mushy, starry-eyed dreamer and let all those pent-up I love yous roll like thunder this Valentine’s Day!

Here are some quotes and proverbs about love:

All you need is love. ~John Lennon

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt. ~Charles M. Schultz

If you only have one smile in you, give it to the people you love. ~Maya Angelou

The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing. ~Blaise Pascal

We are most alive when we’re in love. ~John Updike

A kiss makes the heart young again, and wipes out the years. ~Rupert Brooke

Kisses are a better fate than wisdom. ~e.e. cummings

The best smell in the world is the man that you love. ~Jennifer Aniston

Love is being stupid together. ~Paul Valery

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies. ~Aristotle

Love is like dew that falls on both nettles and lilies. ~Swedish Proverb

Love is not finding someone to live with, it’s finding someone you can’t live without. ~Rafael Ortiz

Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

A man is not where he lives, but where he loves. ~Latin Proverb

Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century. ~Mark Twain

At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet. ~Plato

So…which if your favorite quote? Do you have a romantic quote that touches your heart? If so, please add it in the comment section. I’m eager to read them.

  1. What a beautiful post, Donna. Yes I will tell my dear husband how much I love him. Actually we don't have to wait for Valentine's Day but it's a good reminder. My favorite quotes: Love is not finding someone to live with, it’s finding someone you can’t live without. ~Rafael Ortiz

    1. Mona, my hubby isn't the romantic type...his response to my, "Do you love me?" is usually, "I'm here, ain't I?" LOL I'm just kidding. He's not that bad. But I do love that Valentine's Day gives me the opportunity to make over him a bit more than he usually lets me.

  2. Reminds me of Ewan McGregor in Moulin Rouge :)

  3. I love your post, Donna. And I'm really looking forward to the Sweet Romance Reads Valentine's Party! It should be lots of fun.
