…that I can remember. I’m sure there are more.
10.) “If I could measure the beauty of her eyes, I was born to look into them and know myself.” -Shakespeare in Love
9.) “The world moves for love. It kneels before it in awe.” -The Village
8.) “I loved people before and they went away, so a long time I made the decision I wasn’t going to need anyone anymore. I”ve wasted most of my life that way. And I know I’m late and I know I don’t deserve it. I need you. I love you.” -Heart and Souls
7.) “The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds and that’s what you’ve given me.” -The Notebook
6.) “I’d ask you about love, you’d probably quote me a sonnet. But you’ve never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn’t know what it’s like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything…” -Good Will Hunting
5.) “She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen” -Say Anything
4.) “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.”-When Harry Met Sally
3.) “I don’t think you’re an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother’s pretty interesting and you really are an appallingly bad public speaker and, um, you tend to let whatever’s in your head come out without much consideration for the consequences. I realize that when I met you at the turkey curry buffet that I was unforgivably rude and wearing a reindeer jumper that my mother had given me the day before. But the thing is, um, what I’m trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances… I like you. Very much… No, I like you very much. Just as you are.” -Bridget Jones’ Diary
2.) Look, I guarantee there will be tough times. I guarantee that at some point one or both of us is going to want out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know in my heart you are the one for me. – Runaway Bride
1.) “You make me want to be a better man.”-As Good As It Gets
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.
Will you marry this foolish, frightened old man… who needs you more than he can bear to say… who loves you, even though he hardly knows how? — CS Lewis in Shadowlands
Okay, I knew I didn’t get them all. I love that movie (though so many I know thought it was boring… huh?). His and Joy’s love story is so sweet. I gotta put that in the #1 spot. Thanks, Bob. 🙂
