Top 10 Valentine’s Day quotes from movies

COUPLE MOVIES SHUTTERSTOCK

Most couples have probably gone to the movies as a date idea, maybe even a first date, so there’s bound to be at least one film that you both find sentimental.

Use those memories to create a Valentine’s Day card worthy of Hollywood: go big or go home, because in Hollywood anything goes.

Don’t worry about being too clichéd or cheesy, that’s what the day is for!

Top 10 Valentine’s Day quotes from songs

Whether your singing voice is on par with Whitney Houston and Adele or perhaps best reserved for a shower performance, song lyrics can be a really fun way to tell your partner how much you love them.

Maybe you’ve taken a road trip where you just couldn’t stop listening to this one song, or maybe you even want to commemorate the song you first danced to at your wedding.

  1. “Cause all of me loves all of you. Love your curves and all your edges, all your perfect imperfections.” – John Legend, All of Me

Top 10 Valentine’s Day quotes from poetry

There’s nothing quite as traditionally romantic as poetry, so take a leaf out of the books of Wordsworth and Tennyson to spread the love.

If your partner is a true romantic, they’ll appreciate the effort you’ve taken to research and find the perfect line, or even stanza, to show how much they mean to you.

Besides, if you can’t break out the poetry on Valentine’s Day, when can you?

  1. “You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr. Seuss
  2. “For you see, each day I love you more. Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.” – Rosemonde Gerard
  3. “She walks in beauty, like the night / Of cloudless climes and starry skies; / And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes.” – Lord Tennyson
  4. “Our love is old and sure, not new and frantic / You know I’m yours and I know you are mine / And saying that has made me feel romantic / My dearest love, my darling valentine.” – Wendy Cope
  5. “I am in you and you in me, mutual in divine love.” – William Blake
  6. “I’ll love you, dear, I’ll love you till China and Africa meet and the river jumps over the mountain and the salmon sing in the street.” – W. H. Auden
  7. “I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart).” – E.E. Cummings
  8. “I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.” – Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  9. “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.” – Pablo Neruda
  10. “When you look at me, when you think of me, I am in paradise.” – William Makepeace Thackeray

Top 10 Valentine’s Day quotes from books

Book-lovers know just how important it is to get the words right, so when it comes to a Valentine’s Day you’ll want to choose carefully.

Do you and your partner read the same books? Easy, choose a passage or line you both enjoy!

Not a book fan but your partner is? Well, first of all good on you for taking notice of your partner’s interests. Is your partner’s favourite book not on this list? Just have a cheeky Google to find out.

  1. “Your face is my heart, Sassenach, and the love of you is my soul.” – Jamie Fraser, Outlander
  2. “My sun and stars. Moon of my life.” – Khal Drogo, Game of Thrones
  3. “Always.” – Snape, Harry Potter

  8. “True love is the best thing in the world, except for cough drops.” – Miracle Max, The Princess Bride
  9. “What I feel for her is a wholly different emotion. It stands and walks on its own, living and breathing and throbbing and shaking me to the roots of my being.” – Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
  10. “I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.” – Arwen, The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

How to give your quote as a gift

You don’t just need to stick to flowers, chocolates and cards for Valentine’s Day. When you have found your perfect message you can get creative and think of an original way to present it. Here are some ideas:

  • A handwritten note on handmade paper is a personal way to say “I love you”.
  • Collect your favourite photos of you and your Valentine together and get them made into a fold-out card or small book. You can include your quote/s between the pages and sign off at the end with a personal sentiment.
  • Mount your message onto a glass block or a metal plate to be displayed around the house.
  • Have your quote printed on something your Valentine can use, like a pillowcase or a coffee cup. It’s a bit kitsch, but undeniably sweet to drink your coffee every morning out of a cup that reminds you that you’re the bee’s knees.
