Can you name the Movie by its definition of LOVE?

by: Donna Paine

How much influence has Hollywood had on how we define Love? Whether it be a historical romantic film, drama, thriller, comedy, or fantasy, when love is portrayed on the screen, it sends a message. Love has been portrayed in a variety of ways over the years in film and has evolved over time. Thus, it is often debated whether films influence society or society influences film. While you contemplate this thought try to match a well-known love quote to its movie.

Can you name the Movie by its definition of LOVE?

1) “Love means never to have to say you are sorry.”
2) “If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion... love actually is all around.”
3) “The best love awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, that’s what you have given me.”
4) “You had me at Hello.”
5) “You make me want to be a better man.”
6) “Swoon, I’ll catch you.”
7) “You will never age for me or fade or die.”
8) “What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word I’ll lasso it and pull it down.”
9) “I came here with no expectations. Only to profess, now that I am at liberty to do so, that my heart is and always will be yours.”
10) “In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find someone who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you.”
11) “I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn’t know this either, but love don’t make things nice, it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bullshit.”
12) “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she had to walk into mine.”
13) “I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidentally like on a breeze, but I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time. I miss you, Jenny. If there’s anything you need, I won’t be far away.”
14) “Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me… it brought me to you. And I’m thankful for that, Rose. I’m thankful. You must do me this honor. Promise me you’ll survive. That you won’t give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.”
15) “But the heart’s not like a box that gets filled up. It expands in size the more you love.”
16) “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”
17) “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”
18) “I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
19) “The only way you could beat my crazy was by doing something crazy yourself. Thank you. I love you. I knew it the minute I met you. I’m sorry it took so long for me to catch up. I just got stuck.”
20) “I knew I’d never be able to remember what Nina wore that day. But I also knew I’d never forget the way she looked.”
