10 Most Inspiring Romantic Quotes Ever

Romantic QuotesMost inspiring romantic quotes ever? Haven’t we had enough romantic stuff here already in the near past?

I think not. I think that you can’t have too much romance in your life.

I am a romantic guy. That’s no secret. Guilty as charged. So what?

What most people consider as a weakness, is in fact a fortitude. Being romantic is not blurring out reality, not peering through rose-colored glasses, it’s looking at life with other than the five senses you already got. Having a romantic soul is revealing a "glass is half full"-mentality, as opposed to the so called realists, who tend to have a rather negative image of the world.

So why a list of the most romantic quotes?

Because I like them. Because romantic quotes or romantic love quotes illustrate vividly the lessons we learn in life and in love. I like to hear what famous writers or celebrities have to say about certain topics.

Of course, I have also found plenty of nonsense, intellectual wanna-be’s trying to be smart and some really cheesy stuff.

On what basis have I chosen the best ones?

They have to fulfill certain criteria, they have to be positive and uplifting. You’re supposed to feel better after reading them and not to realize how hard life can be. The romantic quotes are to convey a positive point of view at the romantic side of life.

I want them to inspire you, to give you hope if you lost it and to guide you to a better life.

Is this possible? We will see.

So, without further ado, here is my personal favorite list of the 10 most uplifting romantic quotes.


The List

Here are my personal 10 best romantic quotes ever:

  1. "Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence."
    —Henry Louis Mencken

  2. I love this quote because it illustrates that there is yet another way to look at the world: with your inner senses, rather than with the so called rational mind. The rational mind ensures that we survive, but not that we evolve.

    Henry Louis Mencken was one of the most influential American writers of the early 20th century.

  3. "Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
    —Franklin P. Jones

  4. If you are looking for purpose in life, take this quote into consideration.

    Unfortunately, the identity of Franklin P. Jones is not clear.

  5. "Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more."
    —Erica Jong

  6. This quote reminds me that it is a waste of lifetime to be afraid of love, to be afraid of getting hurt. Love is a risk, but you have so much to gain.

    Erica Jong is an American author and educator.

  7. "I see when men love women. They give them but a little of their lives. But women when they love give everything."
    —Oscar Wilde

  8. I am not really sure if that is true, that women give more when they love than men do, but it reminds me that you should never hold anything back. Give all you have, always.

    Oscar Wilde is one of my all time favorite novelists.

  9. "Love takes up where knowledge leaves off."
    —Saint Thomas Aquinas

  10. Another reminder of the fact that the inner wisdom triumphs over the rational mind. Love speaks the universal language.

    Saint Thomas Aquinas was an Italian Roman Catholic priest.

  11. "Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies."

  12. A very romantic view of love, not necessarily typical for "the old Greeks". This reminds me of the "Origin of Love"-Myth based on Plato’s Symposium.

    Aristotle was a Greek philosopher, student of Plato.

  13. "Can miles truly separate you from friends… If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there?"
    —Richard Bach

  14. What is our reality? The matter that surrounds us or our inner emotional world?

    Richard David Bach is an American writer. He is widely known as the author of the best-selling novel, Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

  15. "Love the moment and the energy of the moment will spread beyond all boundaries."
    —Corita Kent

  16. To live in the present and to cherish the moment is the truest path to happiness and enlightenment.

    Corita Kent was an artist and an educator.

  17. "Love and you shall be loved. All love is mathematically just, as much as two sides of an algebraic equation."
    —Ralph Waldo Emerson

  18. Law of Attraction in action: you only attract things that you vision in your mind and practice in your life.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson was an American essayist and poet.

  19. "Only from the heart can you touch the sky."
    —Jalaluddin Rumi

  20. Enlightenment can only begin from the inside. Love is the beginning of everything.

    Rumi is 13th Century brilliant Persian mystic who is now one of the most widely read poets in America. One of his poems is for me the most beautiful love poem in the world.

I hope I have uplifted and inspired you with my personal romantic quotes list. Each and every one of them is worth to reflect on them and to align your life with them.

I certainly do.

All the best from the incurable romantic,

Eddie Corbano

    Hello Eddie

    You made a small mistake on one of your quotes.
    Aristotle was not the student of Plato.
    Plato was the student of Aristotle.
    Philosopher Aristotle never wrote a single text .
    His student Plato wrote down everything Aristotle preached!

  6. Eddie Corbano July 19, 2009 at 10:40 am #


    Oh yes, you’re right, thanks for pointing out.



  7. Madde July 24, 2009 at 1:37 am #

    Beautiful. I want to share one of my favorites with you.
    “The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along”.
    Maulana Jalalu’d din Rumi.

  8. Eddie Corbano July 28, 2009 at 5:29 am #


    I love that. Is this from a poem?

    Ed: Add one more to your 10 most inspirational love quotes;
    I’m certain you recall Nat King Coles “Nature Boy” And the quote that I must bring to your attention is this great line—“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn. is just to love and be loved in return” And what a velvet voice Nat had–my guess is you recall.the song

    Al McDowell, Composer

  11. Eddie Corbano September 16, 2009 at 5:20 am #

    Hey Al, of course, Nat King Cole is one of my all-time favorites.

    You should listen to the Kurt Elling version of “Nature Boy”. Superb, if you love Jazz.

    Love these words … well done also :
    Love is not an eastern romantic novel it’s a sailing without aboat , and feeling that you will never arrive it ,it’s a beck of sadness and our deepnesses
    Love is not an easy romantic song ,it’s apoem with out words , to sing it you need to taste it , and how hard to taste the aloes

    I liked your article a lot! But, I felt compelled to chime in on the Aristotle/Plato issue. The person above was right to point out that Plato was not the student of Aristotle. Plato was actually a student of Socrates, not Aristotle (Socrates is the one who never wrote down his own works). I can’t remember if this is right, but something is telling me that Aristotle wasn’t even alive at the time of Plato/Socrates, but came quite a bit later (or maybe before?). This must be my philosophy classes from college calling out to me from deep memory! I know its not too important for the purposes of this article, but I just wanted to let you know.
    Thanks again

    the human heart is a mystery, so love with caution.

  26. Shg4ever July 26, 2010 at 4:08 am #

    Dear Eddie
    that is true. you can/capable of loving too much, or in my case loving to death. Not that I wanted to kill any body, but I was willing to die just to be with him. I am not sure that is considered love, in my opinion, it is more lust than love.
    by the way, I am going through a painful divorce and your quotes and saying help me alot. thank you.

    -Samuel Lover

    Men always want to be a woman's first love. Women have a more subtle instinct: What they like is to be a man's last romance.

    i have a seriouse problem i love a girl i love her more than any thing but she don't love me at all what i can do please help me

    • Nicole November 21, 2010 at 7:36 am #

      you need to let her go..I’m going through the same thing. I think it’s the hardest thing I’ll ever do but you have to find the strength. It is true that people never realize what they had until it is gone and if you love something you have to set it free.

  30. Nevermore November 15, 2010 at 10:53 pm #

    It's better to live one day as a predator than a hundred years as pray… that's how i always look at it so if you love someone , no matter how hard it is, no matter how far she or he is do absolutely everything to be with that person. Always remember that nothing is impossible and that we are only limited by the boundaries set by our own misguided minds.

  31. jake November 21, 2010 at 5:50 am #

    i have a problem, i am in love with this girl and she doesn’t love me back what do i do?

    • Joe November 24, 2010 at 3:20 pm #

      Dude move on she obviously isnt for you. you can always find someone that will make you happier and that will love you for you. trust me if its that hard it isnt ment to happen. these things should just fall into place. dont put yourself threw the bullshit just find a new pile. theoreticly speeking.

    “everything that lives, lives not alone, nor for itself”- this has a true and deep meaning.

  44. Tia J November 12, 2013 at 6:27 pm #

    I like your site but there are these big grey quotation marks that cover up most of the quotes. Some can’t even be read because of them. They go all the way down the page. Just thought you should know. Thanks for your time.

    • Eddie Corbano November 12, 2013 at 8:07 pm #

      Hi Tia,

      I’m sorry to hear that… I’ve heard this before from visitors but couldn’t get to the bottom of it. It occurs only with a specific combination of browser and settings.

      I forwarded this to a technician, hopefully he’ll find out what it is.

      Thank you for reporting it.

      Your friend,

  45. Autumn July 9, 2015 at 5:59 pm #

    I loved this article. I’m someone who’s in love with love. #3 is so inspiring.
