In a great romance, each person basically plays a part that the other really likes.
– Elizabeth Ashley
Story writers say that love is concerned only with young people, and the excitement and glamour of romance end at the altar. How blind they are. The best romance is inside marriage; the finest love stories come after the wedding, not before.
– Irving Stone, 1903 – 1989
The life of man is the true romance, which when it is valiantly conducted will yield the imagination a higher joy than any fiction.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803–1882
Medicine, law, business, engineering. These are noble pursuits. And necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love. These are what we stay alive for.
– Tom Schulman, Dead Poets Society (1989)
You need not attempt to shake off or to banter off Romance. It is an evil you will never get rid of to the end of your days. It is a part of yourself … of your soul. Age will only mellow it a little, and give it a holier tone.
– Edgar Allan Poe, 1809 – 1849
Tradition wears a snowy beard, romance is always young.
– John Greenleaf Whittier, 1807 – 1892
