Welcome to the Fool for Love Blog Hop! Hope everyone is doing well and will follow along for some fun, games, and prizes. Lots of fabulous authors, a variety of things to dish on. There are many things that came to mind when I found out the theme for our blog hop. I’m a fool for romance novels. Even more so, I’m a fool for movies and though I do go for the blow ‘em up, shoot ‘em up, arrest ‘em all kind of movies fairly frequently), I like to indulge in a good romantic comedy or a love story that seems to resonate through the years. Here are a few of my favorites along with a quote from each movie.
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. ~ Harry, When Harry Met Sally
Open your eyes and look at me. No, I don’t think I will kiss you. Although you need kissing badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often and by someone who knows how. ~ Rhett Butler, Gone With the Wind
Well, how long is your program? Well, it was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together… and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home… only to no home I’d ever known… I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like… magic. ~ Sam, Sleepless in Seattle
It was sort of sweet actually – I mean, I know she’s an actress and all that, so she can deliver a line – but she said that she might be as famous as can be – but also… that she was just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her. [pause] Oh, sod a dog. I’ve made the wrong decision, haven’t I? ~ William, Notting Hill
I may dissect each little thing and put myself out there so much but at least that means that I still care. Oh! You’ve think you won because women are expendable to you. You may not get hurt or make an ass of yourself that way but you don’t fall in love that way either. You have not won. You’re alone. I may do a lot of stupid shit but I’m still a lot closer to love than you are. ~ Gigi, He’s Just Not That Into You
You can’t navigate me. I may do mean things, and I may hurt you, and I may run away without your permission, and you may hate me forever, and I know that scares the living shit outta you ’cause you know I’m the only real thing you got. ~ Troy, Reality Bites
“Maybe I didn’t really know you. Maybe you were just a mirage. Maybe the world is full of food and sex and spectacle and we’re all just hurling towards an apocalypse, in which case it’s not your fault. I’m been thinking about all these things and… you’re probably standing there monitoring. And one more thing – about the letter. Nuke it. Flame it. Destroy it. – It hurts me to know it’s out there. Later.” ~ Lloyd, Say Anything
Okay, so I got carried away a bit and I could’ve kept going. I mean there are a TON of great romantic movies out there, some funny and some serious. Each one of them has a line or several that just scream that they are a fool for love (or a fool in love). Here are a few more of my favorites, without quotes, otherwise we’d be here all day! What are some of your favorites? I know I haven’t seen everything out there so shout em out…I just may be able to add a few more to my favorites list.
