Take inspiration from songs

One tip in finding that perfect quote for your dear beloved is to get inspiration from songs you both love, or a musical piece that means something to you like a song played on your first date, wedding, or engagement party. 

If you aren't both into music though, look through lines from classic ballads for the perfect way to profess your love and what the relationship means for you. 

One perfect wholesome source would be the songs from the 70s and 80s (a much simpler time), which have lyrics that describe love at its purest. Just take a look at this line from The Carpenters:

“I can take all the madness the world has to give. But I won't last a day without you!”

-I won’t last a day without you from the Carpenters

Carpenters - I Won't Last A Day Without You

Take note of lines from romantic comedies or romance movies

Another source of sweet lines are romantic comedies or romance movies. They are perfect for modern, more conversational lines that are easy to remember too. 

We list a few lines here which you can use. Starting with Julia Robert's iconic line from the movie, Notting Hill. 

'I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.'

Another movie favorite that has no shortage of romantic lines, is The Age of Innocence film adaptation of Edith Wharton's book with the same title that was released on the big screen in 1993.

Directed by Martin Scorsese with a star-studded cast featuring Michelle Pfeiffer and Winona Ryder, you and your hubby can watch it together, and set the stage for you to deliver the line to him after. 

“Each time, you happen to me all over again.” from The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

Who says cartoons can't be romantic? The Disney movie Pocahontas, in 1995, speaks about the against-all-odds kind of love between Indian Princess Pocahontas and Captain John Smith which was voiced by no other than actor Mel Gibson. 

'I'd rather die tomorrow than live a hundred years without knowing you.' —Pocahontas

J.R.R. Tolkien is known for being a master of fantasy, (even developing his own language for his series, Lord of the Rings) but who would've thought that here and there, he drops a few lines guaranteed to melt any man's heart. 

Here's one from Liv Tyler's character, Arwen Evenstar, from Lord of the Rings. 

“I would rather share one lifetime with you, than face all the ages of this world alone.”

If you want to put more effort into finding the right words, turn to the world's best writers to help you out. 

One tip though is to narrow your search by looking for books written by female writers which are most likely to echo the sentiments you are looking for but don't discount male writers too-after all, love, as well as good poetry, is meant to be universal. 

Let's begin with this line by Virginia Woolf. 

“In case you ever foolishly forget: I am never not thinking of you.” from Selected Diaries by Virginia Woolf

Our next romantic female writer is Emily Bronte, the English writer who did everything for her pieces to be heard. She even initially published under the pen name Ellis Bell as female writers were frowned upon. 

“He is more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” - Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

Next on our list is the prolific writer, W.H. Auden. While he is known to be a master of all forms of the written word- from prose to poetry, it is interesting to note that he never knew love in the traditional sense. While he did marry Erika Mann, their marriage was never consummated as he only did so to provide Mann with a British passport. 

“He was my North, my South, my East and West, my working week and my Sunday rest.” from Stop all the clocks by W.H. Auden

If you are looking for romance, then William Shakespeare can definitely satisfy. This English writer and playwright taps into the emotion of love quite well- with pieces like Romeo and Juliet and even Hamlet, that provide a lot of quotes to choose from. 

“Doubt thou the stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love.” Hamlet by William Shakespeare

The Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho definitely brings the passion that most Latin Americans are known for. We bring a quote from his best seller The Alchemist which propelled him to literary fame. 

“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.” - Paul Coelho, The Alchemist
