42 romantic quotes to make your toes curl in the best possible ways


I try to play it cool, but wow am I ever a sucker for romance. Still, a good line has to be unique, you know? It has to strike a certain je ne sais quoi to make my heart strings go twang. Bonus points if it's nerdy or obscurely literary or a sci-fi reference.

You've seen our list of 52 incredibly romantic and not (too) cheesy love quotes, right? Well, I'm here to give you Part Two, with 42 more quotes to make your toes curl in the best possible ways. And, oh my gosh, there is a Terry Pratchett quote in here, people, which makes this the best lineup of love quotes officially in the history of ever.

Use these quotes on your invitations, your favors, painted onto handmade art, embroidered on your table linens - however they speak to your offbeat love!

"This is my dream,
It is my own dream,
I dreamt it.
I dreamt that my hair was kempt.
Then I dreamt that my true love unkempt it."
-Ogden Nash, My Dream

"This is our musical theater love story.
We're making it scene to scene.
Our love is strong and growing,
On our journey to be free."
-"Musical Theater Love Story" from The Big Gay Musical

"If there's a future to be had, I will walk into it gladly at your side." -Fenris, Act 3, Dragon Age II

Wherever you go, I'll be with you
Whatever you want, I'll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame
-Cheap Trick, "The Flame"

"'And what would humans be without love?'
'RARE,' said Death."
-Terry Pratchett, Sourcery

"Two people who are a little bit deluded in each other's favour. That's what love is, isn't it?"
-David Mitchell, That Mitchell and Webb Look

"Deux étions et n'avions qu'un coeur"
("We were two and only had one heart.")
-François Villon, Rondeau (Mort, j'appelle de ta rigueur)

"Tout... tout est mieux avec toi que sans."
("Everything is better with you than without you.")
-Manu Larcenet, Le combat ordinaire

"If I became lost in
the multiverse, exploring
infinite parallel dimensions, my
only criterion for settling
down somewhere would be
whether or not I could find you:
and once I did, I'd stay there even
if it was a world ruled by giant spider-
priests, or one where killer
robots won the Civil War, or even
a world where sandwiches
were never invented, because
you'd make it the best
of all possible worlds anyway,
and plus
we could get rich
off inventing sandwiches."
-Tim Pratt, Scientific Romance

"The intellectual is always showing off;
the lover is always getting lost.
The intellectual runs away, afraid of drowning;
the whole business of love is to drown in the sea.
Intellectuals plan their repose;
lovers are ashamed to rest.
The lover is always alone, even surrounded with people;
like water and oil, he remains apart.
The man who goes to the trouble
of giving advice to a lover
gets nothing. He's mocked by passion.
Love is like musk. It attracts attention.
Love is a tree, and lovers are its shade."
-Rumi, The Intellectual

"But when two people are at one in the inmost hearts,
They shatter even the strength of iron or of bronze.
And when two people understand each other in their inmost hearts,
Their words are sweet and strong, like the fragrance of orchids"
- I Ching (The Book of Changes)

"When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too." - Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
