Love Quotes from the Movies
This collection of love quotes from the movies is the product of a decades old tradition that still happens at the university I attended whenever a woman gets engaged. Now, I have to be careful not to disclose any top secret information. But essentially, this is a gathering of women only. Nobody knows who the lucky woman is except for the gathering planner/s and the woman herself. In a cleverly thought out fashion (that I cannot speak about), it becomes a game to try and guess which one of them at this "gathering" is going to get married.
My roommate, who is also one of my very best friends, got engaged last year and chose me to throw this "gathering" for her. It is common to read love quotes during this time, but so much of the time, the love quotes were pretty sappy and cheesy. This style was not fitting of my friend and her fiance, so I decided to choose love quotes from popular movies that women in the circle could relate to. These were some of those quotes that I hand-picked to read during her "get-together". Yes they are a tad sappy, but sometimes people need a little sappy in their lives.
Love Quotes from the Movies
"Look, in my opinion the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what-have-you. The right person is still going to think the sun shines out of your ass. That's the kind of person that's worth sticking with."
"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… (love is like) roots that (grow) towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom has fallen from our branches we find that we are one tree and not two."
~Captain Corelli's Mandolin~
"Love is not a feeling, it's an ability."
~Dan in Real Life~
Don Juan Demarco

~Don Juan Demarco~
"Sometimes in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken. Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what. Maybe you'll find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding, but there's also the chance that the one person you can count on for a lifetime, the one person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself is the same person who's been standing beside you all along."
~Marion St. Claire, Bride Wars~
