My Favorite Romance: The Quotes

Every book has them. I like to write them down. Or highlight them so I can go back and remember them. And that's what today is about. My favorite romantical quotes.

First some romanticals from Shakespeare:

No sooner met but they looked; no sooner looked but they loved; no sooner loved but they sighed; no sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason; no sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy; and in these degrees have they made a pair of stairs to marriage...
"Doubt thou the stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love." 
"To be wise and love exceeds man's might." {Probably my favorite!}

And from Jane Austen:
"The idea of Mr. Collins with all his solemn composure, being run away by his feelings, made Elizabeth so near laughing that she could not use the short pause he allowed in any attempt to stop him further, and he continued . . . " {Right,  I know. Not really romantic, but giggle worthy!} 
"She was of course only too good for him. But as nobody minds having what is too good for them, he was very steadily earnest in pursuit of the blessing." {Mansfield Park} 
And my final one, which is also one of my favorites:
"The mind is its own place, and in its self can make a heav'n of hell or a hell of heav'n" {John Milton, Paradise Lost}
Again, I know, not that romantic, but it always reminds me of the first days of romance, or the conflict in a story.  Heav'n or Hell--you know, depending.

About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
