Quotes I Love: Love and Passion

Once a week I post a quote I love. It may be related to writing, inspiration, lgbt issues, my own life, or anything else that interests me. So here’s this week’s Quote I Love…

I’ve been working on revisions for my current work-in-progress, Breathe. Part of the goal of this last round of edits was to increase the romantic tension and build up the emotion in every scene.

Focusing on the love and desire in my work puts me in a romantic mood, so today I’m sharing some of my favorite quotes about love and passion.

Hope you enjoy these.

The honesty’s too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides”
