Woo Your Sweetheart with these Swoon-worthy Words

Stanzas by Mary Wollenstonecraft Shelley

There are lots of gifts to choose from that tell your special someone how you feel: a bouquet symbolizing your budding romance, chocolate treats in honor of your true love’s sweet nature, or a low-key cuddlefest to show your quiet cutie how much you care! But no matter how you choose to express your feelings, one thing remains true — any gift of love is made sweeter when accompanied by a few heartfelt words.

So, we’ve collected five swoon-inducing lines from literature that are sure to impress the one you adore. Write one on a handmade card or impress your paramour with a poetic recitation!

Whether you’ve found a steady sweetheart or feel happiest being single, you’ll find something to love in these tender lines of devotion.

    I love that Persuasion is on there – an oft-overlooked love story, all the more tender and beautiful for its lack of wild drama.
