My Favorite Bookish Love Quotes

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! In honor of today, I thought I would share some of my favorite love quotes from a few of my favorite books. 




"But I love your feet only because they walked upon the earth and upon the wind and upon the waters, until they found me." - Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

"When you walk on the beach at night, you can say things that you can't say in real life." - Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty

"As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once. " - John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.” - Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

"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 love you as certain dark things are loved, secretly, between the shadow and the soul.” - Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss 




“Goodbye, said the fox. And now here is my secret, a very simple secret. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince

“When he shall die, / Take him and cut him out in little stars, / And he will make the face of heaven so fine / That all the world will be in love with night / And pay no worship to the garish sun.” - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“In vain have I 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 can't force love, I realized. It's there or it isn't. If it's not there, you've got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you've got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.”  - Richelle Mead, Frostbite

“No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.” - Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope...I have loved none but you.”  - Jane Austen, Persuasion



“He didn’t give me flowers or candy. He gave me the moon and the stars. Infinity." - Jenny Han, We'll Always Have Summer

“And I’ve realized that the Beatles got it wrong. Love isn’t all we need—love is all there is.”  - Morgan Matson, Second Chance Summer

“When did we see each other face-to-face? Not until you saw into my cracks and I saw into yours. Before that, we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade but never seeing inside. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. The light can get out.” - John Green, Paper Towns

“There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then.” - Cassandra Clare, City of Glass 



This Valentine's Day, I'll be spending it with my little heartbreaker.  What about you? Any fun plans for today? Let me know in the comments below.
