Favorite Romantic Quotes from Books

I’m a girl who loves love, books, and quotes, so I thought I’d combine all of those to share some of my favorite romantic quotes from books. These aren’t necessarily my favorite books or even favorite authors, but the snippets I’m sharing have stuck in my mind over time.

“In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” – Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight years and a half ago. Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you.” – Jane Austen, Persuasion

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” – Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

“Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an
old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps… perhaps… love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.” – L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

“I knew the second I met you that there was something about you I needed. Turns out it wasn’t something about you at all. It was just you.” – Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster

“Your lies didn’t stop me loving you; your truth hasn’t stopped me either.” – Rachel Hartman, Seraphina (The sequel Shadow Scale finally releases next month after almost 3 years of waiting!)

“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”
― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park
