Romance

"He's like a drug for you, Bella."
"...and Jo laid the rustling sheets together with a careful hand, as one might shut the covers of a lovely romance, which holds the reader fast till the end comes, and he finds himself alone in the work-a-day world again."
"If you neglected to warn Djetth beforehand that you were going to shoot him down, Your Highness, he may consider you in breach of contract...-- Rhett"
"As a rule of thumb, it was always safer if the Commander-in-Chief formulated a risky plan."
"I knew you would do me good in some way, at some time--I saw it in your eyes when I first beheld you."
"Poor fellow! I think he is in love with you.'I am not aware of it. And to me it is one of the most odious things in a girl's life, that there must always be some supposition of falling in love coming between her and any man who is kind to her... I have no ground for the nonsensical vanity of fancying everybody who comes near me is in love with me."
"It would be mortifying to the feelings of many ladies, could they be made to understand how little the heart of a man is affected by what is costly or new in their attire... Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter."
"I stood still, vision blurring, and in that moment, I heard my heart break. It was a small, clean sound, like the snapping of a flower's stem."
"My soul will find yours."
"Like some wines our love could neither mature nor travel."
"She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older- the natural sequel of an unnatural beginning."
"Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs."
