Short romantic phrases include "You are my heart, my life, my one and only thought" by Arthur Conan Doyle and Percy Bysshe Shelley's "Soul meets soul on lovers' lips." Another romantic literature quote is from Robert Browning: "Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be."
Writers' expressions of love often show the depth and timelessness of the emotion. Examples include Edith Wharton's “Each time, you happen to me all over again” and "If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life" by Oscar Wilde. Other romantic remarks are more realistic and practical, showing a lover's everyday feelings, such as “I love you even when you’re upset” and “I trust that you love me by all the things you do for me."
