I don’t know if it is the fact that it’s Monday, I don’t know if it’s the fact that we are getting closer and closer to Christmas, but I sure felt like talking about love today. And since the best romance is in movie, let’s have a look at some of the best love quotes Hollywood has to offer. Some of them are really cheesy, but other are downright inspirational and perfect for staring a new week.
1. Can’t promise you it’s going to be easy, but we’re going to try.
“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What’s it look like? If it’s with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that’s what you really wanted. But don’t you take the easy way out.” Surely you recognize Noah (Ryan Gosling) and Allie (Rachel McAdams) from The Notebook (2004).
2. What if this is as good as it gets?
“I might be the only one who appreciates how amazing you are in every single thing that you do, and … I watch them, wondering how they can watch you bring their food, and clear their tables and never get that they just met the greatest woman alive. And the fact that I get it makes me feel good, about me.” Melvin (Jack Nicholson) gives Carol (Helen Hunt) the best compliments in As good as It Gets (1997).
3. To me, you are perfect.
“But for now, let me say — without hope or agenda, just because it’s Christmas and at Christmas you tell the truth — to me, you are perfect. And my wasted heart will love you. Until you look like this [picture of a mummy]. Merry Christmas.” Mark (Andrew Lincoln) to Juliet (Keira Knightley) in Love Actually (2003).
4. In life or in death, we will be together.
“I thought we would meet only in death.” Latika (Freida Pinto) to Jamal (Dev Patel) in the classic Slumdog Millionaire (2008).
5. Invent a word for love.
“Love is too weak a word for what I feel — I luuurve you, you know, I loave you, I luff you, two F’s, yes I have to invent, of course I do, don’t you think I do?” Alvy (Woody Allen) to Annie (Diane Keaton) in Annie Hall (1977).
6. I love your flaws.
“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle in your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” Harry (Billy Crystal) to Sally (Meg Ryan) in When Harry Met Sally (1989).
7. Keep it classy!
“Miss Kubelik, one doesn’t get to be a second administrative assistant around here unless he’s a pretty good judge of character, and as far as I’m concerned you’re tops. I mean, decency-wise and otherwise-wise.” — C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) in The Apartment (1960).
8. Got to love the drama!
“Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest so long as I live on! I killed you. Haunt me, then! Haunt your murderer! I know that ghosts have wandered on the Earth. Be with me always. Take any form, drive me mad, only do not leave me in this dark alone where I cannot find you. I cannot live without my life! I cannot die without my soul.” — Heathcliff (Laurence Olivier) in Wuthering Heights (1939).
9. Life ends with you
“Have you never met a woman who inspires you to love? Until your every sense is filled with her? You inhale her. You taste her. You see your unborn children in her eyes and know that your heart has at last found a home. Your life begins with her, and without her it must surely end. ” Don Juan (Johnny Depp) in Don Juan DeMarco (1994).
10. It’s all about kissing.
“You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.” Rhett Butler (Clarke Gable) in Gone with the Wind (1939).
