Albus Dumbledore once told a troubled Harry, “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic; capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
This has been my favorite quote since the day I read it. Words have always been a refuge to everyone, especially people tending to a heartbreak searching for hope amidst all the pain. I would know because I did the same. Words helped me translate all my pain into meaningful sentences. I am not one of those who keeps their books neat and tidy, they are always marked with pen, pencil, highlighters. So, I can go back to the words that makeme feel something whenever I wish too. So, I compiled a list that contains ten of my favorite quotes from literature for the romantic in you.

I can go on record and say that Stardust is one of the finest love stories I have read. Neil Gaiman is one of the finest storytellers you would read and this adult fairytale would take you on a ride.

Albert Camus is no romance writer but he will definitely teach you a thing or two if you read him well. In such simple words, he defines the pain of heartbreak.
