WARNING – With all of these love quotes it’s about to get GUSHY up in here. I love love. Don’t you?

I’m such a girl in that I love declarations of feelings and emotions and every rom com (romantic comedy) movie in existence. With Valentine’s Day roughly a week away, you know I had to bring the heat from our beloved YA books.

And let me tell you, there are some steamy passages from our fave books – but in a very PG sort of way. Which I always appreciate.

“Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a word no bigger or longer than an edge. That’s what it is: an edge, a razor. It draws up through the center of your life, cutting everything in two. Before and after. The rest of the world falls away on either side.” – Delirium, Lauren Oliver

As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has.

I still do. If you want me.” ― City of Glass, Cassandra Clare

A Few Love Quotes From Classic Literature

“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.” – Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy
“When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are to become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No … don’t blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away. Doesn’t sound very exciting, does it? But it is!” – Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Louis de Bernières
“I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you – especially when you are near me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous channel, and two hundred miles or so of land some broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapt; and then I’ve a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly. As for you, – you’d forget me.” ― Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë
“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.” – Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
“It isn’t possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.” ― A Room with a View, E.M. Forster
