Nothing expresses love more than the literary poems and sonnets. From Shakespeare and Browning to Spencer and Donne, everyone has been an epitome of love and their writings are still considered as the best medium of professing love. Whether it is about our unrequited love or eternal one, we always turn to these literature love masters to quote their lines. Their lines have always captured our love in the best sense.
Here’s a list of some of the much loved and oft-quoted romantic lines from great works of literature:
- For God’s sake hold your tongue, and let me love
– John Donne, The Canonisation
- Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
– William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
- “The only regret I will have in dying is if it is not for love.”
– Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera
- “Loves are like empires: when the idea they are founded on crumbles, they, too, fade away.”
