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