Dancing Tension

Prom has all the elements of a popular story. It reeks of all-Americanness, tension, drama. It has romance. Pretty dresses. Dancing. Limos. High school. Coming of age.

Terror Some

Same Vocation

Feel About

I feel about romance the same way I do about a vocation: it's a calling. You have an inner intuition, an inner 'yes.' I don't know if it's destined or not, but certainly I couldn't imagine being the person I am today without the romantic experiences I've had.

- Alden Ehrenreich

Think Very

There is something sinister, something quite biographical about what I do - but that part is for me. It's my personal business. I think there is a lot of romance, melancholy. There's a sadness to it, but there's romance in sadness. I suppose I am a very melancholy person.

- Alexander McQueen

Hidden Agenda

There is a hidden agenda in the fragility of romance.

I Think Some

Irvine is such a safe, stable, planned community, and I'm a person who has a lot of inner longing for drama and romance. So I think in some way the structure of Irvine made me more creative because I had these boundaries, and I thought outside them.

- Andrea Seigel

Love Movie

I would like Albert Brooks to have received the Oscars for best actor, best director and best screenplay for 'Modern Romance.' I love that movie.

- Andy Kindler

About Time Frame

The wonderful thing about 48 fps is the integration of live action and CG elements; that is something I learned from 'The Hobbit.' We are so used to 24 fps and the romance of celluloid... but at 48 fps, you cannot deny the existence of these CG creations in the same time frame and space and environment as the live action.

- Andy Serkis

Life Romantic

Flavors About

The wonderful thing about romance is that there are so many flavors of it!

- Ann Maxwell

Sickness Measured

Romance isn't measured by how viral your proposal goes. The Internet age may try to sell you something different, but don't ever forget that viral is closely associated with sickness - so don't ever make being viral your goal.

- Ann Voskamp

Next Soothing

There is something so settled and stodgy about turning a great romance into next of kin on an emergency room form, and something so soothing and special, too.

Appreciate Very

My mom is very romantic. As is my dad. They appreciate real romance.

- Ansel Elgort


I like romanticizing romance.

- Ansel Elgort

Like Sniff

I do like a little romance... just a sniff, as I call it, of the rocks and valleys. Of course, bread-and-cheese is the real thing. The rocks and valleys are no good at all, if you haven't got that.

- Anthony Trollope

Magic Movies

Cinema Paradiso, because it reminds me of why I make movies, the magic of movies, the romance of movies.

- Antoine Fuqua

Take Ambiguity

The main business of a lawyer is to take the romance, the mystery, the irony, the ambiguity out of everything he touches.

- Antonin Scalia

Dead Some

Many luckless people imagine that romance is dead: some, overcivilised, fondly suppose that there never was romance: a poet tells us that romance is unrecognised though really present: but scientists can meet him daily, walking at large and undisguised in the world.

- Archibald Hill

Lucky Behind

We all do role-play. Sometimes behind the camera, and sometimes in front of it. I am the few lucky ones who have been able to wear both hats and especially have been able to romance the camera in a believable way, and I hope that this romance between us never ends.

- Arfi Lamba

Love Celebration

A wedding, a great wedding, is just a blast. A celebration of romance and community and love... What is unfun about that? Nothing.

- Arundhati Roy

Love Period

I love period dramas - be it romance or philosophy.

- Ashish Sharma

Like Shines

'Something Borrowed' is looking like a romantic comedy, but it's a comedy. It shines as a comedy; it's definitely not just about the romance. It's an honest depiction of the struggle between the characters. The comedy aspect will make it shine.

- Ashley Williams

Romantic Essence

Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It's the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, 'This is me, and I'm interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.'

- Ashton Kutcher

Think Making

You know, I think that romance sort of coincides with effort, so you can fall flat on your face, but as long as you're making a great effort, I think it comes off as romantic.

- Ashton Kutcher

Next Very

Romance is sort of an island right next to care. When you care about someone and you listen to them and you hear them and you can feel them and you know just what's right, and generally it's something that will be very unimpressive to a room of strangers.

- Ashton Kutcher

Effort I Think

I think that romance sort of coincides with effort, so you can fall flat on your face, but as long as you're making a great effort, I think it comes off as romantic. So it can be something as simple as, like, if you're someone who doesn't cook, you can make a meal.

- Ashton Kutcher

Doing Importance

We haven't lost romance in the digital age, but we may be neglecting it. In doing so, antiquated art forms are taking on new importance. The power of a handwritten letter is greater than ever. It's personal and deliberate and means more than an e-mail or text ever will.

- Ashton Kutcher

Romantic Some

Some say that the age of chivalry is past, that the spirit of romance is dead. The age of chivalry is never past, so long as there is a wrong left unredressed on earth.

- Charles Kingsley

Woman Deep

'Superman/Wonder Woman,' people expected, I guess, a lot of romance, or maybe something that wasn't emotionally deep. Who knows?

- Charles Soule

Fantasy Urban

I have a low taste for urban fantasy and paranormal romance.

- Charles Stross

Voice Still

'True Romance' was definitely, in part, still me finding my voice as a writer. I was nervous, and I was a lot more shy. The album sounds bruised.

- Charli XCX

Voice Other

I feel like, throughout 'True Romance,' I was unsure of myself in terms of songwriting. Even though it was my voice, I feel there were a lot of other voices on that record, too.

- Charli XCX

Grow Cleaning

I was supposed to be cleaning out the barn, but I was usually reading romance novels. That's how you grow up to be a thriller writer.

- Chevy Stevens

Pink Singer

I'm really into a blush on the eyelid and on the high of the cheek. The singer of 'Cocteau Twins' used to do that - really pink eyelids. It added a little romance to the hard kind of street-edge clothes.

- Chloe Sevigny

Love Play

In the West, audiences think I am a stereotyped action star, or that I always play hitmen or killers. But in Hong Kong, I did a lot of comedy, many dramatic films, and most of all, romantic roles, lots of love stories. I was like a romance novel hero.

- Chow Yun-Fat

Play Some

I play Captain Lance Van Der Berg, who's a Union captain who ends up staying with the Confederate family who's been taken over by the army when they come into the city in Virginia. He strikes up a romance with the youngest daughter in the house, which obviously causes some issues for the family.

Obscurity is just obscurity. There's no romance in obscurity.

Think I Think

I think that most of my romance comes out in my music. And if you look at my track record of three ex-wives, maybe there's something to that.

- David Foster

Bad Outlaw

The outlaw, in the American imagination, is a subject of romance - a 'good' bad man, he is typically a master of escape, a crack shot, a ladies' man.

- David Grann

Always Over

I grew up around writers, and there was always a romance to them. They were charming. They would tell their stories of what they were working on, over the table.

- David Grann

Nostalgia Left

There's a certain nostalgia and romance in a place you left.

- David Guterson

Movies About

The thing about romance and romantic movies is that they can be somewhat melodramatic. For a lot of actors, there's a certain cringe factor that's involved with that.

- David Lyons

Still Perfectly

If you lift the romantic element out of my plots, you still have fully formed mysteries. In the same fashion, if you pull the mystery out of a historical romance, you are left with a perfectly satisfying story.

- Deanna Raybourn

Mystery Books

The addition of romance in my books or mystery to a historical romance is the sauce, not the goose.

- Deanna Raybourn

Brighter Reader

In my books and in romance as a genre, there is a positive, uplifting feeling that leaves the reader with a sense of encouragement and hope for a brighter future - or a brighter present.

- Debbie Macomber

Very Endlessly

First and foremost, I consider myself a storyteller. And I'm endlessly fascinated with people, with what they do and why... and how they feel about it. Which means I'm interested in romance fiction. I was drawn to it, as both a reader and a writer, at the very beginning of my career. It's my kind of storytelling.

- Debbie Macomber

Important Which

Romance focuses on emotions and on relationships, both of which are fundamentally important to women.

- Debbie Macomber

Own Comforting

We all face difficulties of our own, and how comforting it is to immerse yourself in a book - my book, any book, any romance. It's entertainment, it's escape, and it can even be an inspiration!

- Debbie Macomber

Still Tastes

A lot of our assumptions of the world are fairly cynical, fairly negative, and assume the worst. What our reading tastes show - in this rush to fantasy, romance, whatever - is that we actually still want to believe in a world of possibility, in a world of mystery.

- Deborah Harkness

Feminine Blend

The fragrance that suits me best is Romance by Ralph Lauren. It seems to blend into my chemistry, so it is nice and subtle. I don't like to be doused in scent. This one is feminine, fresh and a bit musky.

- Joanne Froggatt

Adventure Call

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

Aesthetic Other

I think that musicians should never forget about the intimacy of bringing two people together, and the aesthetic transference where you're almost vicariously involved in a romance between other people.

- Joe Williams

Romantic Always

Tradition wears a snowy beard, romance is always young.

- John Greenleaf Whittier

Movies Obsessed

I was obsessed with romance. When I was in high school, I saw 'Doctor Zhivago' every day from the day it opened until the day it left the theater.

- John Hughes

Love Trust

I think the thing about love is that even though the things around us change, we as human beings, a lot of the ways we interact, and the ways we love each other is timeless. It requires trust, honesty, commitment, romance, and physical chemistry.

- John Legend

Easy Sex

The romance stuff is easy. A sex scene... that's hard, because you don't know what to do. Those scenes are awkward.

- John Turturro

Here Been

There's been a fragmentation of how the market functions, but I believe printed books are here to stay. People like the tactile experience, the smell of them; there's a great romance to them.

- Jonathan Galassi

Which Models

Obscure as still remains the origin of that 'genre' of romance to which the tales before us belong, there is little doubt that their models, if not their originals, were once extant at Constantinople.

- Joseph Jacobs

Love Certainly

I certainly want to continue to write in a way that's intimate. I love books where you feel you're having a romance with the writer.

- Joseph O'Neill

Love I Love

I love books where you feel you're having a romance with the writer.

- Joseph O'Neill

Love Sucker

I am a sucker for romance and I love girls and that is a terrible combination, because romance has the ability to overwhelm your perspective.

Love Read

Recently, I haven't had too much time to read. But I love a good romance novel.

Endings Books

A romance novel should leave readers joyous. My books all have happy endings.

Even Romances

Workplace romances - or even the illusion of a workplace romance - can carry many ramifications and consequences.

Waiting Which

I keep waiting for the day in which everyone who loves 'Downton Abbey' will realize they were actually watching a historical romance novel.

- Julia Quinn

Love Book

There are people who say they want to write novels. They think, 'I'll learn my craft on the romance novel.' If you don't love the genre, it's going to show, and it's not going to be a good book.

- Julia Quinn

Fancy Disconnect

The general public doesn't expect romance authors to be Harvard graduates. Which is funny, because there are actually quite a lot of us. But this disconnect means that journalists see me as an interesting story. The tricky part is making sure they understand that there are many, many talented writers who don't have 'fancy' educations.

- Julia Quinn

Larger Mostly

I'm mostly a historical romance reader, but I never miss a Susan Elizabeth Phillips book. Her characters are larger than life and heartbreakingly real at the same time. I don't know how she does it.

- Julia Quinn

Degrees Bit

I don't think that writing talent has much to do with where one went to school, or the number of degrees on one's business card, but I do get a bit bristly at the implication that romance authors couldn't possibly be smart enough to get into an Ivy League school.

- Julia Quinn

Romantic Making

Too many women throw themselves into romance because they're afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won't do that.

- Julie Delpy

Love I Love

I love historical romance, absolutely love it.

- Julie Garwood

Famous Restaurant

When you become famous at 19, it does a number in your head, so you find romance in the mundane - isn't it so great that a guy would pick me up at my house and take me to a restaurant?

- Juliette Lewis

Lucky Like

I stayed in submission to my husband, and he allowed me to do anything I wanted to. I felt like I was lucky to have that kind of romance.

- June Carter Cash

Simple Believe

When it comes to romance, I believe in keeping it simple. With my last girlfriend, we were on our way to our favorite restaurant when I pretended that the car was crappin' out. I asked her to get out and check if smoke was coming from the exhaust. When she did, I popped the trunk and inside were six dozen roses and a stuffed bear.

- Justin Chon

Kind Counts

A historical romance is the only kind of book where chastity really counts.

- Barbara Cartland

De Niro Dave

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

Gothic Very

'Crimson' is written in a very particular style, and it's very precise in the way it graduates into a gothic romance. The souls that will connect with it will connect deeply.

- Guillermo del Toro

Romantic June

If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance.

- Bernard Williams

Strong Always

Every time you see a black romance, it's over-the-top. There always has to be extreme hostility between the sexes. He has to cheat. She has to show him how independently strong she is, not just as a woman but as a black woman.

- Bernie Mac

Love Perfect

I love the romance of the '40s. It was the perfect time to live. Technology wasn't so advanced that it made life more difficult, but it was just enough that you can send a phone call or a telegram. And people still took pride in how they looked. The men got dressed up and the women got dressed up and they took care of themselves.

- Bethany Joy Lenz
