What are your favorite love quotes?

Just curious what love quotes are out there... I have seen some, but I know there are more... Here are a few that I like:

~"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." - Billy Crystal, When Harry met Sally

~"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller

~"If there is such a thing as a good marriage, it is because it resembles friendship rather than love." - Michel de Montaigne

I've been rereading Sir ACDoyle so here are some that I've dogeared:
"The old couple had come round to that tragic imitation of the dawn of life when husband and wife, having lost or scattered all those who were their intimates, find themselves face to face and alone once more, their work done, and the end nearing fast. Those who have reached that stage in sweetness and love, who can change their winter into a gentle, Indian summer, have come as victors through the ordeal of life."
I loved this one because my grandfather has been widowed twice, sadly, and still is hopeful :)
"But love is an emotional thing, and whatever is emotional is opposed to that true cold reason which I place above all things. I should never marry myself, lest I bias my judgment."

And I love Oscar Wilde, he always makes me laugh, I've been reading and rereading him my entire literate life, my book is totally dogeared so I'm glad you asked!
"Men always want to be a woman's first love - women like to be a man's last romance."
"One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry."
"To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance."
"When a man has once loved a woman he will do anything for her except continue to love her."
"Women are made to be loved, not understood."

Not sure who said this but one of my favorite marriage quotes is:

"Don't marry someone you can live with....Marry someone you can't live without."

And another quote I'll never forget was also not written by anyone famous... but many years ago when I was very young, my mother took me to visit this lady in the hospital who used to babysit my sisters and I when we were young because she was dying of cancer. My mother wanted her to give us some wise advice before she passed. And my mother, being very religious, kept encouraging her to tell us how important it was to marry a man with religion...but instead she said: "If you want to know how a man will treat you, watch how he treats his mother."

I love: "Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired." -Robert Frost
I forgot about it Lori, I used to have it saved somewhere

I know Shakespeare is 'played'- especially in the wedding world- but this is one of my all time love favorites:


No sooner met but they looked;
No sooner looked but they loved;
No sooner loved but they sighed;
No sooner signed but they asked one another the reason;
No sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy-
