“Perhaps they were right putting love into books. Perhaps it could not live anywhere else”. –William Faulkner
Before point 1
You know, there are times when love renders us speechless (literally). Poets in all centuries have written volumes about this thing called love. For all those times when you are out of words, we bring you the most romantic lines to say and write to your beloved and they shall forever be yours. Here, check out the most romantic lines that will create magic in your relationship.
1. “I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”
-Pablo Neruda
point 1
2.“Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps… perhaps…love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.”
—Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
3. “But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.”
-John Green, Looking For Alaska

4. “Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful. You must do me this honour, Rose. Promise me you'll survive. That you won't give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.”
-Jack Dawson (Titanic)

And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
