…Finding the right gift to make your love stand out can be difficult. You want it to be perfect. You fear making the wrong choice. Finding the right words to accompany your gift can be even more daunting. This is not for lack of emotion, mind you. Rather, it is precisely the very love you seek to express that renders you speechless.
A good trick is to find inspiration in the words of others; words that have timeless power and beauty and charm and presence. Then, you can add your own, or simply add a kiss.
Here, then, is a collection of seven quotes for the final touch that will turn a special moment into a lasting memory.
“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” ~ Dr. Seuss
“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.” ~ Sarah Dessen ~ The Truth About Forever
“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” ~ Robert Fulghum ~ True Love
“Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.” ~ Nicole Krauss ~ The History of Love
“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..” ~ Nicholas Sparks ~ The Notebook
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” ~ Pablo Neruda ~ 100 Love Sonnets
“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.” ~ Plato
