There are some romantic book quotes that almost everyone has heard before. Of course, there’s Mr. Darcy’s first proposal from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice: “In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.” There’s Rhett Butler’s declaration to Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind: “You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.” And who could forget Catherine’s heart-wrenching declaration about Heathcliff in Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights?: “Whatever our souls are made of,his and mine are the same.”
