Great Passages About Love in Literature

Article Type: 

It’s the season for celebrating love. Love comes in many forms, but always pulls at our heartstrings with its spirit of caring, generosity, kindness, and compassion. It’s the subject of much of literature throughout history, and the inspiration for some of the most remembered and revered passages in some of our favorite books. If you need a small token of love or friendship for someone you hold dear, stop by the store to pick up your favorite or let us help you find a new one. Here are a few of my favorite passages about love.


“If you live to be a hundred, I want to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to be without you.” A.A.Milne, WINNIE THE POOH

“Doubt thou the stars are fire; doubt the sun doth move; doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love.” William Shakespeare, HAMLET


“Here is my secret. It is very simple: it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the human eye.” Antoine De Saint- Exupery, THE LITTLE PRINCE
