Happy Valentine's Day!

      Happy Valentine's Day, my dear blogging friends! :-)

      I hope you're all having a wonderful day and taking the opportunity this holiday gives to remind your family and friends how much you love them! I'd like to celebrate this special day of love with some romantic quotes and scenes from some of my favorite couples in period dramas.

   "I have thought about you, every day, every hour, every minute that I have been in here."

                                                               ~Little Dorrit

     "I felt myself bound to you, by honor, by affection, and by a love so strong that nothing could deter me."
                                                               ~Northanger Abbey

  "I'm so sorry! I thought I was going to lose you!"

  "I don't think he was a very good shot."

  "Why did you do it? You're so stupid, why did you do it?"

  " I had two very good reasons. First, I am replaceable and you are not."

  "You are not replaceable, not to me!"

  "Second, you're the only wife I've got or ever will have. You are my whole existence, and I will love you till my last breath."

                                                      ~The Young Victoria

             "My dearest, most beloved...If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more."

  "I went searching for my ideals outside of myself. I found it's not what the world holds for you, it's what you bring to it. The dreams dearest to my heart are right here."

 "Well, I hope you keep on dreaming. It'll be three years before I finish medical school. Even then there won't be any diamond sunbursts or marble halls."

  "I don't want diamond sunbursts or marble halls. I just want you."

                                                    ~Anne of Avonlea

                          "I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is that not strange?"

                                                         ~Much Ado About Nothing

                                                 "My heart is, and always will be, yours."
                                                              ~Sense and Sensibility

          "There's so much to say, I cannot find the words. Except for these: I love you."

                                                            ~Somewhere in Time

    One of my favorite proposal scenes is the Northbound Train scene from North and South. It's sooooo beautiful and romantic and I get chills every time! (That is, I've only seen it once, but I'm sure that if I were to see it again, it would be even more beautiful than the first time because that's just the way things are with me. :-P)

    A proposal as only John Thornton can give it!

   And of course the epic prison scene from The Scarlet Pimpernel! This is my absolute favorite scene in the movie, because it's so touching and romantic and I just looooovve it.......

       Edward's proposal in Sense and Sensibility (1995) is one of my very favorites as well. By the end I'm just as teary as Elinor! : )

      I hope you all have a very special day with lots of yummy chocolate and lots of love! If I could, I would send you all chocolates and flowers, but I daresay they would get quite squashed in the mail so that probably wouldn't be a good idea. So, my dear readers, I wish you a happy Valentine's Day, and God bless!

     "Let me not to the marriage of true minds
      Admit impediments. Love is not love, which alters when it alteration finds,
     Or bends with the remover to remove:
     O, no! It is an ever-fixed mark, that looks on tempests and is never shaken.
     It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
     Whose worth's unknown, although his his height be taken.
     Love is not time's fool, although rosy lips and cheeks
     Within his bending sickle's compass come;
    Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
    But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
    If this be error and upon me proved,
    I never writ, nor no man ever loved."

                ~Shakespeare's Sonnet no 116

      "For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angles, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."  

                                                             ~Romans 8:38-39

  1. Happy valentines day to you too, Emma!


I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
