And as Paul McCartney sang, "you'd think the world would've had enough of silly love songs, but I look around me and see it isn't so, oh no."
Movies and books about love are my favorites - feel goods. There is enough hate in the world. Maybe if we bombard our world with love, we'll drive all that hate away. Here are a few love quotes from movies (some of which came from books) that are bound to make you feel good.
"Dirty Dancing" (1987)
“Me? I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw, I’m scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.”
—Baby (Jennifer Grey) to Johnny (Patrick Swayze).
"Romeo and Juliet" (1968)
“But soft; what light through yonder window breaks? It is my lady! O, it is my love. O that she knew she were.”
—Romeo (Leonard Whiting)
"On Golden Pond" (1981)
“Listen to me, mister. You’re my knight in shining armor. Don’t forget it.”
—Ethel (Katharine Hepburn) to Norman (Henry Fonda)
"Gone with the Wind" (1939)
“No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”
—Rhett (Clark Gable) to Scarlett (Vivien Leigh)
"Annie Hall" (1977)
“Love is too weak a word for what I feel — I luuurve you, you know, I loave you, I luff you, two F’s, yes I have to invent, of course I do, don’t you think I do?”
—Alvy (Woody Allen) to Annie (Diane Keaton)

I enjoyed your post, Brenda. Love is the most powerful energy in the world! We just forget and let the negative stuff take over. Thanks for the reminder to "be love."

Fantastic quotes, Brenda! (And you've got some of my all-time favorite movies, too!)
Loved those quotes, especially the "On Golden Pond" one (because we're pretty close to there).
Thanks Leah and Liz. Glad you enjoyed.
What an uplifting post. Negativity just pulls everyone down. Whereas the positive/happy attitude makes others smile. Thanks for the smile.
You're very welcome, Diane.
