Perhaps it is because I’ve been in the throes of romance for the past 10 months, a relationship that keeps getting better and better, but I’ve been struggling to find words to describe or express my feelings to my beloved. That is why I set out to find some well-crafted quotes on romance, quotes new to me. I found some that are most excellent:
