Sex and the City
This Carrie Bradshaw quote, from the show Sex and the City, was taken from the character’s wedding reading at a friend’s wedding.
“His hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was ‘I do.'”
We love the advice that Juno’s dad gave her, when it came to love and relationships.
“In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find someone who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Buffy is known for its witty, yet touching script, this is a lovely quote that reflects the selflessness of love.
“When I say, ‘I love you,’ it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a woman. You’re the one.”
When Harry Met Sally
“I love that you get cold when it’s seventy-one degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour-and-a-half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
Brothers and Sisters
This next quote, from the TV show Brothers and Sisters, gives a realistic look at the nature of love and expresses the joy found in the work of loving someone.
“Love is difficult. For one human being to love another human being, that is the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us; the final test and proof; the work for which all other work is merely preparation”.
Good Will Hunting
We love this sweet quote, from the popular classic Good Will Hunting.
“It doesn’t matter if the guy is perfect or the girl is perfect, as long as they are perfect for each other.”
