Captain Correlli’s Mandolin
Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have 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 promulgation of promises of eternal passion. 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, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.
I believe if there’s any kind of God it wouldn’t be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there’s any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it’s almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.
To love each other, even when we hate each other. No running — ever. Nobody walks out no matter what happens. Take care when old, senile, smelly. This is forever. (These vows were signed on a Post-It Note by the couple.)
Fault in our Stars
I’m not gonna talk about our love life because I can’t so instead I’m a talk about math. There is an infinite collection of 0 and 1 there’s .1 .12 .112 infinite collection of others, of course there is a bigger infinity between zero and two or between zero and a billion some infinities are simply better than others an author that we used to like taught us that. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God I want more days for Augustus. But Gus my love I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. You gave me forever in the number days and for that I am eternally grateful… I love you so much
A Brilliant Mind
I’ve always believed in numbers; and the equations and logics that lead to reason. But after a lifetime of such pursuits, I ask, “What truly is logic?” “Who decides reason?” My quest has taken me through the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional — and back. And I have made the most important discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my life: It is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reasons can be found. I’m only here tonight because of you [his wife, Alicia]. You are the reason I am. You are all my reasons. Thank you.
Pride and Prejudice
You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
When Harry Met Sally
I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. 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.
For so long I wondered if I would ever find my prince, my soulmate. Then three years ago, at another wedding, I turned to a friend for comfort. And instead, I found everything that I’d ever been looking for my whole life. And now here we are with our future before us, and I only want to spend it with you, my prince, my soulmate, my friend.
The Lord of the Rings
I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.
I love you. Very simple, very truly. You’re the epitome of every attribute and quality I’ve ever looked for in another person… I can’t stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can’t look into your eyes without feeling that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can’t talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are… I’ve never felt this before, and I like who I am because of it… There isn’t another soul on this… planet who’s ever made me half the person I am when I’m with you… I’m forever changed because of who you are and what you’ve meant to me.
Sex in the City
His hello was the end of her endings.
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle.
His hand would be hers to hold forever.
His forever was as simple as her smile.
He said she was what was missing.
She said instantly she knew.
She was a question to be answered.
And his answer was “I do.”
Sleepless in Seattle
It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together, and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I’d ever known. I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like magic.
Good Will Hunting
People call these things imperfections, but they’re not. Ah, that’s the good stuff. Then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds. You’re not perfect sport, and let me save you the suspense. This girl you met? She isn’t perfect either. But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other. That’s the whole deal. That’s what intimacy is all about.
Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense. That’s what it’s like for me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with you, and I doubt that you planned on falling in love with me. But once we met, it was clear that neither of us could control what was happening to us. We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has happened only once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.
