Description

A collection of quips and quotes from some of the greatest writers ever, on the subject that has inspired so much of their work–love.

All around the world, every second of the day, people are falling in love. It has been the subject of books and songs for centuries, with many great writers, past and present, having something to say on the matter—from Aristotle (“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies”) to Stefan Zweig (“I am sure that no one else has ever loved you so lavishly, with such doglike fidelity, with such devotion, as I did and do”). This collection of heartfelt quotations from diaries, letters, poems and prose is perfect for anyone feeling the heady rush of romance, whether it’s an old flame still burning bright or a new one just beginning to spark.
