11 Romance Quotes from Literature

"When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance." ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance. ~ An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde Fine, large, meaningless, general terms like romance and business can always be related. They take the place of thinking, and are highly useful to optimists and lecturers. ~ The Job by Sinclair Lewis He could not forget the touch of her arms around his neck, impatiently felt as it had been at the time; but now the recollection of her clinging defence of him, seemed to thrill him through and through,--to melt away every resolution, all power of self-control, as if it were wax before a fire. ~ North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell Youth cannot imagine romance apart from youth. ~ The Magnificent Ambersons by Booth Tarkington "Romance should never begin with sentiment. It should begin with science and end with a settlement." ~ An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde "Men always want to be a woman's first love. That is their clumsy vanity. We women have a more subtle instinct about things. What we like is to be a man's last romance." ~ A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde "You can be as romantic as you please about love, Hector; but you mustn't be romantic about money." ~ Man And Superman by George Bernard Shaw She ordered a cup of tea, which proved excessively bad, and this gave her a sense that she was suffering in a romantic cause. ~ Washington Square by Henry James "Detection is, or ought to be, an exact science, and should be treated in the same cold and unemotional manner. You have attempted to tinge it with romanticism, which produces much the same effect as if you worked a love-story or an elopement into the fifth proposition of Euclid." ~ The Sign of The Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
