On the run up to Valentine’s Day, we’ve compiled a list of 20 of the most romantic quotes from books that will fill your heart and make you believe in love.

1. “I just want to spend every possible minute of the rest of my life with you.”
Suzanne CollinsCatching Fire

2. “That must be love: when everything else in the world could implode and you wouldn’t care as long as you had that one person standing beside you.” 
― Katie McGarryDare You To

3. “This overwhelming, encompassing feeling is love. It’s not perfect and it’s messy as hell. And it’s exactly what I need.”
— Katie McGarry, Dare You To

4. “‘L’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle.’ It means that love is the most powerful force in the world. That love can do anything.
— Cassandra Clare, City of Fallen Angels

5. “You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.”
― Jodi PicoultMy Sister’s Keeper

6. “No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.”
― Sarah DessenThis Lullaby

7. “It’s not the face, but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it. You are beautiful.”
― Stephenie MeyerThe Host

8. “You’ve made me believe in love again. I’d all but given up any hope for it existing before you came along. Thank you for reawakening my heart.”
J. Sterling, Breaking Stars

9. “I meant it when I said I didn’t believe in love at first sight. It takes time to really, truly fall for someone. Yet I believe in a moment. A moment when you glimpse the truth within someone, and they glimpse the truth within you. In that moment, you don’t belong to yourself any longer, not completely. Part of you belongs to him; part of him belongs to you. After that, you can’t take it back, no matter how much you want to, no matter how hard you try.”
― Claudia GrayA Thousand Pieces of You

10. “For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.”
― Stephanie PerkinsAnna and the French Kiss

11. “Maybe this is what happens when you fall in love. On the outside a lighter is nothing amazing, but it holds all the ingredients that can create something wonderful. With a few pushes in the right direction, you can inspire something so brilliant that it pushes back the darkness.”
– Katie McGarry, Crash Into You

12. “I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

13. “My heart made it’s choice, and it chose you.”
― Colleen HooverMaybe Someday

14. “I know you’ve only ever known your father and me. And I love Jack, because he is your father. But there’s another kind of love, Amanda. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible. I want you to know that you could have that. I want you to hold out for it.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Nights in Rodanthe

15. “Be happy. Be ridiculously happy, Nika. Don’t let anyone else be responsible for your joy. That’s up to you. So, chase it. Without abandon. Without guilt. Without fear. And never settle. Not in life. And especially not in love.”
– J. Sterling, Behind the Plate
