  1. What terrific quotes. And how interesting that many of them were spoken by men (all of them?) – men who, we are told, don't speak of love, don't get mushy, aren't romantics at heart. This post proves that chestnut wrong.Last month, my husband said something so achingly romantic that it brought tears to my eyes. It is now a line in one of my books. Men are damned romantic. It just takes that blow to the heart for them to realize it, I guess.Thanks for this!

  2. If they only realized how important–what a place they fill in our hearts when they risk speaking such words…

  3. Wonderful quotes. why is it that women get accused of being mushy when we speak our hearts about love, but men achieve timeless quotes. I guess because it is so rare for them to say such things…

  4. Great quotes! I'll have to start watching more of these moies.

    Awesome quotes – thanks for sharing. Maybe men can write about love better than they can say the words out loud?

    oops sorry bout that

    Men can be accused of lots of things, and being romantic is definitely one of them. Not all men are gifted with golden tongues, but when it comes to heart, that's a different story. I'm scanning this though misty eyes as I read quote after quote from the heart of a man speaking to a woman.As I approach the inevitable closing chapter of my life, my fervent prayer is that it will come at the zenith of my love for my mate.PD

  10. (Sigh) Sniff, sniff. Beautiful!
