Saying I Love You can both be the simplest and hardest thing. This phrase is the title of at least 45 songs, 15 albums, and over a dozen movies the last time we checked, and yet it’s not the only way one can express their passion, adulation, dedication, appreciation, and affection for someone. In fact, sometimes I love you is best said in another way entirely. The following is a look at a few of our favorite love quotes from our favorite films and books:
