Romantic quotes to complete the perfect card...

Feeling sexy? Ah, sigh… Then, leave it to Bill Shakes:

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. –William Shakespeare

Do you have a hard time resisting your love? Do you know that goes both ways? It doesn’t sound like there’s much frost between you two, then. Still, some Frost might be just what you need:

Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. –Robert Frost

Do you complete each other? Are you the parts of a whole greater than you ever imagined? Does your whole being sing whenever you’re together? Consider this:

Love is composed of a single soul in two bodies. –Aristotle

Is your love bursting at the seams? Is your heart beating ever more powerfully? Then, try these words on, and see how they feel:

We loved with a love that was more than love. –Edgar Allan Poe

When you look at your love, are you overwhelmed in a beautiful and breathtaking way? Are your senses tickled, and all at once? Do you almost go numb from the power of it? Then you might like:

Love is the poetry of the senses. –Honore de Balzac

Do you fall in love all over again, and deeper, every day? Is your love your muse? Borrow a line from Zelda, the woman who inspired so much of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s work. Here’s one of our favourites of hers:

Nobody has ever measured, even poets, how much a heart can hold. –Zelda Fitzgerald

Is there no one else, and nothing else, that can brighten your day like the sight of your love coming your way? Mr. Byron at your service:

‘Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark our coming, and look brighter when we come. –Lord Byron

Would you prefer a touch of sap? There’s no shame in being sappy, especially on your anniversary or Valentine’s Day, and especially if the words ring true to you. So, how about:

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul. –Judy Garland

Can’t get enough sap? Don’t want a day more than the one you love? You might like:

If you live to a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. – A. A. Milne

Has this love healed you? Has it called you out from the dark and into the light? Then, this one should do it:

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place. –Zora Neale Hurston

Are you more the hugging type? Do you normally let your hug say it all? Go for:

They invented hugs to let people know you love them without saying anything. –Bil Keane

Did you not believe in love, or not know what love was, until you met the one you’re with? It sounds like some proper thanks are in order this anniversary or Valentine’s Day. Something like:

If I know what love is, it is because of you. –Hermann Hesse

Is it a proposal you’re after? How about something short and sweet:

Grow old with me! The best is yet to be. –Robert Browning

Do you want to go simple and classic? Are you and your love humming the same tune? Then, how about:

All you need is love. –John Lennon

Are you feeling a bit cheeky? Do you know that your loved one loves chocolate almost as much as you? Maybe you can make their day with:

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt. –Charles M. Shulz

Speaking of chocolate...

You have the perfect card. Now you’ve got your pick of these romantic quotes to decorate the inside. Or, at least, you’ve got these quotes as inspiration. Maybe you’re thinking it’s time, finally, to let your very own inner poet out.

But what do you pair the card and words with?

Have you got the perfect gift?

Will it be chocolate? Flowers? Both?

Are you bored of giving the same thing year after year? Do you want to try something new? Do you want to make this occasion memorable?

Why not give your love something that lasts forever – something that can weather any storm – just like your love?

An Eternity Rose is the perfect romantic gift. It’s a real rose, cultivated with loving care, and dipped into a molten bath of gold, platinum, or silver, thereby preserving its perfection and beauty for all time. So it’s a rose and precious metal all in one.

Most important of all, it’s a thoughtful gift, and a thoughtful gift shows that you pay attention.

Give a flower that will end up featured in a display case and not wilted in the garbage bin. This rose can become a family heirloom, a cherished piece that you pass on to young lovers in your budding family for generations.

Okay, let’s review. That’s the card you already have, with one of these romantic quotes inside, and it’s all going atop an Eternity Rose. Win. Win. Win.

You’re sure to make this very special occasion your love’s best one yet.
