Romantic Quotes

If you love all things, you will also attain the divine mystery that is in all things. For then your ability to perceive the truth will grow every day, and your mind will open itself to an all-embracing love.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Just because you know someone doesn't mean you love them, and just because you don't know people doesn't mean you can't love them. You can fall in love with a complete stranger in a heartbeat, if God planned that route for you. So open your heart to strangers more often. You never know when God will throw that pass at you.
Heather Grove

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
Ingrid Bergman

Love is when there are a million things you want to say to someone, but when they look you in the eyes and hold you in their arms nothing in life matters other than being with that person at that moment.

It takes a minute to have a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and an day to love someone...
but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
