You can try to deny all it all you want, but every single one of us has been all twitterpated at least a time or two in our lives. It's what makes us human and the reason lovey-dovey sexy songs or sad songs about unrequited love always dominate music charts. It's also the reason why everybody loves a good sappy movie — even though not everybody will admit it.
A good, solid love quote — whether it's in a music lyric, a poem or in a movie — always resonates and hits home because it usually speaks to a common experience we can all relate to. Everybody loves. Everybody loses. And we're all better for it.
So grab that box of tissues and prepare to let your sappy flag fly. These are some of the best words about love from pop culture past and present.
