Go on, admit it — there's been at least one point in your life when you've been a total bumbling, love-sick fool. Everyone has. It's a common bond we share as humans, and the reason why there are so many amazing love songs we obsess over. It's also the reason why we can all (sometimes secretly) appreciate a good quote about love.
Yeah, there's a quote or two in this collection from The Notebook — and the film will always hold a special place in our hearts — but the 2004 movie isn't the only source of words about romance that ring true.
In honor of Valentine's Day, let your sappy flag fly with some of our favorite love quotes of all time.
