Be it Julia Roberts or Hugh Jackman, films and actors have always had a way to bring love and romance in our lives. I have seen broken hearts mend and relationships grow stronger, because of the influence of some film quotes on love. Yes, I know I may seem a tad too smitten about films. But the fact remains, that their drama, reality and surreality actually help us bring a little bit of love in our life.
Girl's Side of the Story
"After all... I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her" - Julia Roberts in "Notting Hill"
This quote has been used by girls everywhere to make the dimwitted man of their dreams realize just how much they love them.
"I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it that you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all." - Julia Stiles in "Ten Things I Hate About You"
Boy! The amount of times I have seen girls referring to this poem, to express how they feel. I think it is one of the cutest poems that I have ever come across! After all, Heath Ledger was worth it!
"And... it's a great thing to get what you want. It's a really good thing unless what you thought you wanted wasn't really what you wanted...because what you really wanted you couldn't imagine or you didn't think it was possible but what if someone came along who knew exactly what you wanted without asking they just knew...like they could hear your heart beating or listen to your thoughts and what if they were sure of themselves and they didn't have to take a poll and they loved you...but you hesitated and I... uh... I have to go... I'm sorry but... I have to go!" - Meg Ryan in "Kate and Leopold"
This quote is a clear cut example of how confused women can be when in love. If I had a penny every time a woman went into such a hysteria in front of me, I'd be rich!
"I am here to find the man I love" - Keira Knightley in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest"
This quote in the film is a testament to a woman's strength. It shows all that a woman is willing to endure for the man she loves!
"About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominate that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him" - Kristen Stewart in "Twilight"
This quote is one of the most popular quotes for young lovers. It is the perfect example of the truly unconditional and consuming nature of love, for women!
Guy's Side of the Story
"I guarantee that we'll have tough times and I guarantee that at some point one or both of us will want to get out. But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it for the rest of my life cause I know in my heart you're the only one for me." - Richard Gere in "The Runaway Bride"
If a man said this to me, I would be putty in his arms. But, the fact remains, that this quote shows how serious a man can be about settling down in life, when he has found the right woman.
"I'd rather fight with you than make love with anyone else." - Dermot Mulroney in "The Wedding Date"
I believe the quote is quite self-explanatory. Commitment, love, and disagreements when in love, all are covered. So simply said, and a lifetime to prove it!
"It's a wonderful thing, as time goes by, to be with someone who looks into your face, when you've gotten old, and still sees what you think you look like." -"The Bachelor"
This is a quote that can really sum up the meaning of love. Aren't we all just looking for that special someone? (If we haven't found them already)
"If I tell you I love you, can I keep you forever?" -"Casper"
This is a quote that I can never forget. It is the expression of love in all its innocence and naivety.
"You're not perfect, sport, and let me save you the suspense: this girl you've met, she's not perfect either. But the question is whether or not you're perfect for each other." - Robin Williams in "Goodwill Hunting"
This quote is the best love advice that one can give. It is true. Love is not about finding the perfect person, it is about finding the perfect person for you!
As Hugh Grant would say, "Love actually is all around us". I hope you find yours, and I hope you recognize, value and cherish it forever. This is where I sign off! Love on!
