Romantic Quotations

If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life. - Oscar Wilde
If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life.
Oscar Wilde

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

Kiss me and you will see how important I am. - Sylvia Plath
Kiss me and you will see how important I am.
Sylvia Plath

Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It's the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, 'This is me, and I'm interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.'
Ashton Kutcher

Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Edmond de Goncourt
