#11393 Isaac Asimov

Remarkable what a fragile flower romance is. A gun with a nervous operator behind it can spoil the whole thing. .

Isaac Asimov Quotes about romance
#13085 G. K. Chesterton

To be born into this earth is to be born into uncongenial surroundings, hence to be born into a romance. .

G. K. Chesterton Quotes about romance
#16262 Edward Gibbon

The successors ofmay disdain their brethren of England; but the romance of , that exquisite picture of human manners, will outlive the palace of theand the imperial eagle of the house of Austria. .

Edward Gibbon Quotes about romance
#16830 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Round about what is, lies a whole mysterious world of might be, — a psychological romance of possibilities and things that do not happen. By going out a few minutes sooner or later, by stopping to speak with a friend at a corner, by meeting this man or that, or by turning down this street instead of the other, we may let slip some great occasion of good, or avoid some impending evil, by which the whole current of our lives would have been changed. There is no possible solution to the dark enigma but the one word, "Providence". .

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Quotes about romance
#17314 William Wordsworth

Lady of the Mere, Sole-sitting by the shores of old romance. .

William Wordsworth Quotes about romance
#18856 Thomas Gray

Now as the Paradisiacal pleasures of the Mahometans consist in playing upon the flute and lying with Houris, be mine to read eternal new romances of Marivaux and Crebillon. .

Thomas Gray Quotes about romance
#30605 Carl Sagan

It is sometimes said thatare unromantic, that their passion to figure out robs the world of beauty and mystery. But is it not stirring to understand how the world actually works — that white light is made of colors, that color is the way we perceive the wavelengths of light, that transparent air reflects light, that in so doing it discriminates among the waves, and that the sky is blue for the same reason that the sunset is red? It does no harm to the romance of the sunset to know a little bit about it. .

Carl Sagan Quotes about romance
#36832 Sёren Kierkegaard

The result of an education by novels and romances can be two-fold. Either the individual sinks deeper and deeper into illusion, or he emerges from it and loses faith in the illusion, but gains a belief in mystification. In the illusion the individual is hidden from himself; in mystification, he is hidden from others, but both cases are results of a romantic training. .

Sёren Kierkegaard Quotes about romance
#37500 William Gibson

On the most basic level, computers in my books are simply a metaphor for human memory: I'm interested in the hows and whys of memory, the ways it defines who and what we are, in how easily memory is subject to revision. When I was writing Neuromancer, it was wonderful to be able to tie a lot of these interests into the computer metaphor. It wasn't until I could finally afford a computer of my own that I found out there's a drive mechanism inside — this little thing that spins around. I'd been expecting an exotic crystalline thing, a cyberspace deck or something, and what I got was a little piece of a Victorian engine that made noises like a scratchy old record player. That noise took away some of the mystique for me; it made computers less sexy. My ignorance had allowed me to romanticize them. .

William Gibson Quotes about romance
#37515 William Gibson

Neuro from the nerves, the silver paths. Romancer. Necromancer. I call up the dead. .

William Gibson Quotes about romance
#37524 William Gibson

Wintermute was hive mind, decision maker, effecting change in the world outside. Neuromancer was personality. Neuromancer was immortality. Marie-France must have built something into Wintermute, the compulsion that had driven the thing to free itself, to unite with Neuromancer. .

William Gibson Quotes about romance
#37532 William Gibson

The lane to the land of the dead. Where you are, my friend. Marie-France, my lady, she prepared this road, but her lord choked her off before I could read the book of her days. Neuro from the nerves, the silver paths. Romancer. Necromancer. I call up the dead. But no, my friend," and the boy did a little dance, brown feet printing the sand, "I am the dead, and their land." He laughed. A gull cried, "Stay. If your woman is a ghost, she doesn't know it. Neither will you." .

William Gibson Quotes about romance
#37563 William Gibson

I think of Neuromancer as being, in a good sense, an adolescent book. It's a young man's book. It was written very young-man's-book. It was written by a man who was not very young, when he wrote it, but who was sufficiently immature. .

William Gibson Quotes about romance
#43114 Stephen King

French is the language that turns dirt into romance. .

Stephen King Quotes about romance
#43877 James Branch Cabell

American literature was enriched with Men Who Loved Allison.... Of the actual and eventual worth of this romance I cannot pretend to be an unprejudiced judge. The tale seems to me one of those many books which have profited, very dubiously indeed, by having obtained, in one way of another, the repute of being indecent. .

James Branch Cabell Quotes about romance
#43891 James Branch Cabell

Here was the astounding fact: the race did go forward; the race did achieve; and in every way the race grew better. Progress through irrational and astounding blunders, whose outrageousness bedwarfed the wildest cliches of romance, was what Kennaston found everywhere. All this, then, also was foreplanned, just as all happenings at Storisende had been, in his puny romance; and the puppets, here to, moved as they thought of their own volition, but really in order to serve a denouement in which many of them had not any personal part or interest.... .

James Branch Cabell Quotes about romance
#43960 James Branch Cabell

Nothing ... nothing in the universe, is of any importance, or is authentic to any serious sense, except the illusions of romance. For man alone of animals plays the ape to his dreams. These axioms — poor, deaf and blinded spendthrift! — are none the less valuable for being quoted. .

James Branch Cabell Quotes about romance
#47165 Thomas Mann

How strange a vehicle it is, coming down unchanged from times of old romance, and so characteristically black, the way no other thing is black except a coffin — a vehicle evoking lawless adventures in the plashing stillness of night, and still more strongly evoking death itself, the bier, the dark obsequies, the last silent journey! .

Thomas Mann Quotes about romance
#48279 Henry James

...I had the view of a castle of romance inhabited by a rosy sprite, such a place as would somehow, for diversion of the young idea, take all colour out of storybooks and fairy tales. Wasn't it just a storybook over which I had fallen a-doze and a-dream? No; it was a big, ugly, antique, but convenient house, embodying a few features of a building still older, half replaced and half utilised, in which I had the fancy of our being almost as lost as a handful of passengers in a great drifting ship. Well, I was, strangely, at the helm! .

Henry James Quotes about romance
#51465 Barkhad Abdi

I like 'The Usual Suspects'. Great film. I also like 'Scarface', films like that. Lots of gangster films. I really like watching all kinds of films, dramas, romance. I'll watch comedies. I like Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Denzel Washington, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle. I'd like to meet them. .

Barkhad Abdi Quotes about romance
#51556 Jake Abel

It does not matter what film you're making. If you're young and there's romance in the movie, it's compared to 'Twilight'. .

Jake Abel Quotes about romance
#53913 Waris Ahluwalia

Someone gives jewelry, and there's a bit of romance. If you buy it from a store, the store is trying to romance you. Even when I'm making the jewelry, I have to be romanced. .

Waris Ahluwalia Quotes about romance
#54821 Randy Alcorn

It's not just what Christian fiction lacks I appreciate - it's what it offers. The variety is vast: contemporary, historical, suspense, mysteries, adventure, young adult, romance, fantasy, science fiction. .

Randy Alcorn Quotes about romance
#56325 Isabel Allende

I don't read thrillers, romance or mystery, and I don't read self-help books because I don't believe in shortcuts and loopholes. .

Isabel Allende Quotes about romance
#56418 Dorothy Allison

When I was growing up, I always read horror books, while my sister read romance novels. My sister became unmarried and pregnant during high school, and she kept saying, 'This wasn't supposed to happen! Why is this happening to me?' Someone should have given her another book to read. .

Dorothy Allison Quotes about romance
#58129 Kevin J. Anderson

There is grand romance in The Lord of the Rings. It's an important part of epic literature. .

Kevin J. Anderson Quotes about romance
#58339 Pamela Anderson

I have my hands full with my kids and so romance is not high on my list of priorities. .

Pamela Anderson Quotes about romance
#59741 Shiri Appleby

They ask questions like 'do you believe in aliens' and those types of things. They were really interested in aliens, and that was really something that the Japanese have an interest in, and they are also very big fans of romances. .

Shiri Appleby Quotes about romance
#60246 Sherry Argov

There is a fundamental difference between men and women - women need romance, men need intrigue. .

Sherry Argov Quotes about romance
#60457 Adam Arkin

People can get obsessed with romance, they can get obsessed with political paranoia, they can get obsessed with horror. It's isn't the fault of the subject matter that creates the obsession, I don't think. .

Adam Arkin Quotes about romance
#61862 Elizabeth Ashley

In a great romance, each person basically plays a part that the other really likes. .

Elizabeth Ashley Quotes about romance
#62828 W. H. Auden

Like everything which is not the involuntary result of fleeting emotion but the creation of time and will, any marriage, happy or unhappy, is infinitely more interesting than any romance, however passionate. .

W. H. Auden Quotes about romance
#62928 Jean M. Auel

My fiction is reviewed by the mainstream press, by science fiction periodicals, romance magazines, small press publications and various other journals, including some usually devoted to archaeological and other science material. .

Jean M. Auel Quotes about romance
#64182 Ray Bradbury

The best scientist is open to experience and begins with romance - the idea that anything is possible. .

Ray Bradbury Quotes about romance
#64749 Abhishek Bachchan

I do films that I like. I have done comedy, romance, everything, and I always like to do it differently from the previous ones. .

Abhishek Bachchan Quotes about romance
#66972 Honore de Balzac

Passion is universal humanity. Without it religion, history, romance and art would be useless. .

Honore de Balzac Quotes about romance
#67366 Iain Banks

I think the future stopped looking American when you think back to Blade Runner and Neuromancer, when it started to look more Japanese. .

Iain Banks Quotes about romance
#69049 Drew Barrymore

I'm such an avid magazine reader - music, art, beauty magazines - and I found that food and restaurants were pouring into everything I cared about. Whether it was the pop-up concept, or some mysterious mini-mall restaurant, I got swept up in the sexy romance of the food movement. .

Drew Barrymore Quotes about romance
#74856 Elizabeth Berkley

I will never forget experiencing Venice for the first time. It feels like you are transported to another time - the art, music, food and pure romance in the air is like no other place. .

Elizabeth Berkley Quotes about romance
#76907 Mike Birbiglia

I've actually always wanted to write like a one-person show that was sort of a romantic comedy - a show that was kind of cynical about romance and marriage but ultimately embraced it. Because I feel like comedy is always cynical, inherently, because it's contrarian. .

Mike Birbiglia Quotes about romance
#76924 Thora Birch

For me, romance isn't an over-the-top act. It's someone offering to help and to support me. Or if that person thinks I'm making the wrong decision, he'll tell me. I want him to be honest, because being that honest takes a lot of guts. .

Thora Birch Quotes about romance
#79019 Orlando Bloom

Maybe our generation is more about sex, but it feels like romance is dying out. .

Orlando Bloom Quotes about romance
#85152 Joe Bob Briggs

If you hate what you're seeing, you call it sex and violence. If you like it, you call it 'romance and adventure.' .

Joe Bob Briggs Quotes about romance
#85713 Suzanne Brockmann

The lust and attraction are often a given in a romance novel - I want to dig into the elements of true friendship that form a foundation for a solid, gonna-last-forever romantic relationship. .

Suzanne Brockmann Quotes about romance
#88739 Mika Brzezinski

For many women, going back to work a few months after having a baby is overwhelming and unmanageable. As strange as it may seem, things get even more difficult for a working mom after the second and third baby arrive. By that time, the romance of being a modern 'superwoman' wears off and reality sets in. .

Mika Brzezinski Quotes about romance
#89579 Thomas Bulfinch

The earliest form in which romances appear is that of a rude kind of verse. .

Thomas Bulfinch Quotes about romance
#89584 Thomas Bulfinch

It was not till toward the end of the thirteenth century that the prose romances began to appear. .

Thomas Bulfinch Quotes about romance
#91938 Gerard Butler

It was always a dream as I was growing up. I would watch movies, mostly American movies, and be so engrossed in those stories, all I wanted to do was be there. I wanted to be part of that romance or that fantasy or be that warrior or that struggling soul who finally makes it good. .

Gerard Butler Quotes about romance
#92879 Charlie Chaplin

A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure. .
