Top Ten Swoony Quotes from Books

Daisy's Picks

"In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."  
- Mr Darcy. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

"I don't want those things from you. I love your faults and imperfections. Your kind heart. The scars that match mine, and the struggles to find ourselves. I want you humanness. Nothing else." 
- Morpheus. Ensnared by A.G. Howard

"I cannot make speeches, Emma. If I love you less, I might be able to talk about it more." 
- Mr. Knightley. Emma by Jane Austen

Julia's Picks

"I love you with everything I am, everything I've been, and everything I hope to be. I love you with my past, and I love you for my future. I love you for the children we'll have and for the years we'll have together. I love you for everyone of my smiles and even more, for every one of your smiles." 
- Colin Bridgerton. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton by Julia Quinn

"Love, real love, the kind that you fall in, isn't like Corinthians. The "suffereth long" and "is king" nonsense. It's  like the Song of Solomon. It's jealousy and fire and floods. It's everything that consumes."
- A Notorious Countess Confesses by Julie Anne Long

"Love's about finding the one person who makes your heart complete. Who makes you a better person than you ever dreamed you could be. It's about looking in the eyes of your wife and knowing all the way to your bones that she's simply the best person you've ever known"
- The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn

"I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate being to hinge together"
- Blue-Eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas

Lauren's Picks

“Some people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them," I said. "Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.” 
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

“The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you.” 
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

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


  1. AAAAGH the ENSNARED quote basically killed me with feels. It makes me want to keep reading the rest of the series, which I wasn't too thrilled about before. *le sigh* I just can't stay away from romance.

    Also that quote from THE BOOK THIEF breaks me and makes me whole all at once. HALP.

    Thanks for hosting, ladies! Great list <3

    Sierra @ Yearning to Read

  2. Oh my gosh these quotes are seriously swoon worthy!! For this week, my top ten Tuesday is my top 10 fictional boyfriends <3 thanks for the great theme this week!! https://nikolieolieoh.com/2016/02/09/top-ten-tuesday-fictional-boyfriends/

  3. I used a couple of these some quotes when talking about my fave fictional couples! Knightley! <3

  4. Good idea to do quotes! Pride and Prejudice is my all time favourite romance.

  5. The Pride & Prejudice quote is one of my favorites! Great pick of quotes!

  6. I adore P&P, but Darcy's first proposal always brings out mixed emotions for me. He is, after all, rather a jerk when he proposes...

  7. Ooh, very nice quotes-definitely have to read my Julia Quinn book that I just got!!

  8. I went the other way, writing my top ten in celebration of single heroes and heroines. It's harder than you might think!

  9. Love that quote from Fault in our Stars - so true! But also this - "I cannot make speeches, Emma. If I love you less, I might be able to talk about it more." - I haven't read Emma. Now I will. Thank you. :)

  10. I adore the Mr Knightley quote so much <3 The Darcy one too! I haven't read Romancing Mr. Bridgerton but I really love the quote you chose! Great list.

  11. Oh my goodness all of these gave me the feels. <3
    My favorites were the one from Mr. Knightly, A Notorious Countess Confesses, and The Alchemist.

    Loved this list!

  12. The Jane Austen quotes are AMAZING! I wish I would have kept better track of the quotes I love from the books I've read.

  13. I love this, I did quotes too. It was harder than I thought because I didn't have them written down and trying to search for them was a little daunting, I never did find the one from Emma or Anne of Green Gables I was looking for and short of reading the whole books over, well.. hahaha. But it was fun I did come across some gorgeous ones that made me want to read the books as well! Love the ones you guys picked! And thanks as always for the great topics!!

  14. I like the quotes you chosen. I always rewrite some quotes from the book and actually the characters I really love.

  15. Such a well suited topic choice for this time! I really like how much Austen I am seeing in those quotes as well because I really do love her writing :3
