Romantic Sayings – Keeping The Romance Aflame

Romantic sayings have been around since humankind first walked upright and learned to speak. From ancient times to the postmodern era, in every medium and genre imaginable, romantic sayings have indeed embedded themselves into our collective consciousness, with neither hint nor sign of ever going away. Here are but a few you might recognize:

• “I love you, not only for what you are but for what I am when I am with you.”
– Roy Croft

You know you’ve got it bad when you suddenly find yourself just a tad more improved than the person you were before that certain someone came into your life and turned everything upside down. You’re cleaning up a bit more, you’re becoming more considerate of the other person, and lo and behold, you’re even on time! And when you’ve got it this bad, then it can only be a good thing.

• “Your words are my food, your breath my wine. You are everything to me.”
– Sarah Bernhardt

These sincere words will absolutely melt your woman’s heart. Saying ‘You are everything to me’ just goes to show how important she is to your life and expresses how much you treasure her. It is quite difficult to express your feelings in just a few words, but using a romantic saying like this may just be exactly what you are looking for.

• “Love me without fear, trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding, want me without restrictions
Accept me without change, desire me without inhibitions…”
– Dick Sutphen

A poem about love and passion is probably one of the most romantic gifts that you can give to your loved one. Go through the pages of old books, look for verses from a collection of love poems, and present it as a gift to her, in your own handwriting. Men often forget that presents like this are even more precious than any material thing that you can think of.

The day humankind becomes extinct will be the day romantic sayings cease to exist. In the words of Shakespeare himself, speaking of his own immortal and utterly romantic Sonnet 18, “So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, so long lives this and this gives life to thee.”
