There's nothing more romantic than hearing your partner tell you how much they love you. Of course, some people don't have "a way with words," which means they need some coaching in order to sound sweet. Even though Victorian literature is decades old, it still contains some of the most romantic lines ever written. So if you're looking to write a love letter to your partner, you should use the genre for inspiration. If you don't know where to start, here are the most romantic lines from Victorian literature:
1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Soulmates are two people who feel like their souls are connected. Or, according to Emily Bronte, they're two people who have souls that are made out of the same material. They're two sides to the same coin. They're meant to meet and meant to love.
2. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte #2
Here's another quote from Wuthering Heights that is about as romantic as it gets. If you want to tell someone that you love them, there's no better way than to use these words. It'll show them that there's no limit on your love. In fact, it's impossible for anyone to even come close to matching your affection for them.
3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
When you truly love someone, you'll give them your heart to do whatever they please. They might treat it tenderly, or they might shatter it into pieces. Whatever the case may be, your heart is in their hands.
4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte #2
This is a compliment unlike any other. It's the perfect thing to model a love letter after, because it will let your partner know how much you love them while letting them know that you genuinely consider them to be your better half. While you don't want to steal Charlotte Bronte's words from right off the page, you can use them as inspiration to craft your very own love letter. Don't forget to seal it with a kiss.
5. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
If more people listened to the words in this quote, the world would be a happier, safer place. If you love someone, you'll do whatever you can to be with them. However, if they tell you that they don't have feelings for you, you should be respectful by backing off. Don't chase after them for years if they've made it clear that they aren't willing to accept your affection.
6. Dracula by Bram Stoker
Relationships aren't everything. However, when a man falls in love with a woman, it can turn his entire life around. That's why you should do your best to support your partner and remain by his side when he really needs you.
7. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
This is a quote that you should remember the next time you talk to the boy who's crushing on you. Even if you don't like him back, you should do whatever you can to avoid wounding his heart. No, you shouldn't date him out of pity. You should simply treat his emotions tenderly.
The next time you try to write a love letter (or a sweet text message) for your partner, look at these quotes for inspiration. There's nothing more romantic than Victorian love. Which Victorian novel is your favorite?
