Favorite Quotes, Sayings, and Scraps of Poetry About Love

“They belonged to each other and no matter what life might hold for them, it could never alter that their happiness was in each other’s keeping.”

{Lucy Maud Montgomery – Anne’s House of Dreams}


“We dared to love

Another soul

As deep as our own,

We danced to another’s poetry

And sang the tune of melodies

We thought no one else know –


“And it was like

Heaven touching earth.

And we finally


That all our impossible dreams

Were not wrong.”

{yours truly}


“I hope you find someone who speaks your language so you don’t have to spend a lifetime translating your spirit.”

“Isn’t it strange

How you didn’t expect it,

But in a moment’s time,

You knew –

It was there –

And the collision of

Your two souls

Left you

Forever changed.”

“Wait. You heard me – I asked you to wait. If you don’t practice patience, you’ll end up following the first heart that shows your lonely bones attention … and beautiful, you deserve so much more than settling for lukewarm love. Wait for the one who moves you with the kind of smile you feel days after. Curious eyes that don’t judge, but finger walk through your mental core. Watch how he breathes in air like it’s precious, and how he respects sunrises and sunsets. He’ll ease your burdens because he refuses to add to them, and you’ll think he’s magic because he has a way of making the world feel beautiful again. Wait. You don’t want to settle for an imitation when there’s a chance you can have the real thing.”



“I want to memorize your laughter

And the way your gaze softens with love.

I want to hear your voice

Murmur my name

And feel the softness of your lips

Caressing my forehead.”

“It was rather

beautiful: the way he

put her insecurities to


The way he dove into

her eyes and starved

all the fears

and tasted all the

dreams she kept

coiled beneath her


{Christopher Poindexter}


“And there will

Be someone that

Comes along one day

And offers you

An entire galaxy when

You only expected

A single planet.”

{from Pinterest}


“He had one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life.”

{F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby}


“You are everything beautiful

My love –

And so much more beside.”

“You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul but cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in the world.”

{Emery Allen}


“I admit,

I was afraid

to love.

Not just love,

but to love her.

For she was a stunning

mystery. She carried things

deep inside her that no one

has yet to understand,

and I,

I was afraid to fail,

like the others.


She was the ocean

and I was just a boy

who loved the waves

but was completely

terrified to

“There was a feeling of inevitability when I met you. The sense that we would be together; that there would be a moment when you would look at me in a certain way, and we would cross the threshold from friendship into something so much more.

“We spoke once about lovers who kept finding each other, no matter how many times the world came between them. And I think I had to break your heart, and you had to break mine. How else could we know the worth of what we were given?

“I think you were always meant to know me a little better than anyone else. And our lives were fated to converge like some cosmic dance. I know there is a terrible distance between us. But our bodies are made of celestial light, and we are hurtling through space and time, toward the most beautiful collision.”

{Lang Leav}



You have a soul

As deep as the ocean

And I’d like to spend

The rest of my life

Exploring it.”

{yours truly}
