 8)  Moulin Rouge

 "The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love...
and be loved in return."

7) Titanic

 "You jump, I jump, right?"

6) I Love You Phillip Morris

"I love you. I never stopped loving you. I guess you and me are just fools for love or something - 'written in the stars' or some crap like that - but it was never better than with you, Steve. Never more real. And now I realize all that crazy shit you did in your own fucked up way was always for me, always for us. You're the most amazing man. You take my breath away. And even though I can't be with you right now, I'll always be yours... forever." 

 5) The Notebook

"So it's not gonna be easy. It's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day."

4) Meet Joe Black

"Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. I say, fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy and who will love you the same way back. How do you find him? Well, you forget your head, and you listen to your heart. And I'm not hearing any heart. Cause the truth is, honey, there's no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love, well, you haven't lived a life at all. But you have to try, cause if you haven't tried, you haven't lived." 

3) Brokeback Mountain

"Tell you what...the truth is...sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it."

2) Atonement 

Robbie: Cee, you don't owe me anything.
Cecilia: Robbie didn't you read my letters? Had I been allowed to visit you, had they let me, every day, I would have been there every day.
Robbie: Yes, but if all we have rests on a few moments in a library three and a half years ago then I am not sure, I don't know...
Cecilia: Robbie, look at me. Come back. Come back to me.

1) Before Sunset 

"I have these dreams...I'm standing on a platform and you keep going by on a train. And you go by and you go by and you go by and you go by. And I wake up with the fucking sweats, you know. And then I have this other dream where you're pregnant, in bed, beside me, naked, and I want so badly to touch you but you tell me not to and then you look away. And I touch you anyway. Right on your ankle and your skin is so soft that I wake up in sobs."
