Overview

From humorous proverbs like "You have to kiss a lot of toads before you find a handsome prince," to bittersweet poetry—"'Tis better to have loved and lost / Than never to have loved at all," (Alfred, Lord Tennyson)—the selections gathered by Susan Ratcliffe in Oxford Love Quotations are as rich and varied as the nature of love itself.
With over 2,500 thematically arranged quotations, this collection reveals love in all its different aspects and perversities, even including quotations on areas of life like food and drink and the seasons as seen from a lover's point of view. Drawing from a wide-ranging a variety of sources, Ratcliffe has gathered quotations from both literary and popular writers, comedians, journalists, public figures, film and television, and anonymous sources such as advertising slogans and graffiti. For those composing wedding toasts to anyone who wants to browse the infinite takes on this most essential human emotion, Oxford Love Quotations is an indispensable volume.
