Summary (From the publisher):

What other three little words mean more than the simple phrase "I love you"? As Dorothy L. Sayers so succinctly summed it up: "And what do all the great words come to in the end, but that?" Through the ages, love, and the pursuit of it, has been the motivating force behind humanity's most noble and most ignoble acts. It has also been the wellspring of some of our most profound writings. In THE QUOTABLE LOVER you will find more than five hundred unforgettable quotations from this rich vein -- some of them are wise, some silly, others are hopeful, and still others are heartwrenching -- but all express something important about this most baffling, enchanting, and compelling emotion. Covering everything from puppy love to the unrequited variety, you'll find quotations from poets to politicians, including:

  • Jane Austen
  • Saul Bellow
  • Napoleon Bonaparte
  • Lord Byron
  • Cher
  • Zsa Zsa Gabor
  • Kahlil Gibran
  • Matt Groening
  • Robert Heinlein
  • Washington Irving
  • W. Somerset Maugham
  • O. Henry
  • Sidney Poitier
  • Gloria Steinem
  • Amy Tan

A perfect gift for the perfect -- and not-so-perfect -- lover in your life, this delicious collection brings out the lover in all of us.
