Brought to you by OBS staff members Dawn & Heidi.

“Maybe I don’t want to be defined by what I do. Maybe I’d like to be defined by what I am.” ~Safe Haven. I thought this was a great and powerful quote, and is so true we should all strive to be defined by what we truly are.

“Besides, every couple needs to argue now and then. Just to prove that the relationship is strong enough to survive it.” ~Safe Haven. This is one of those quotes that make you think.  It’s not something you really think about when you’re in the act of arguing, but it rings so true!

“Everyone has a past, but that’s just it-it’s in the past. You can learn from it, but you can’t change it.”~Safe Haven. All I can say is….it’s just so true!

“Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.” ~A Walk To Remember. Said at the end of the movie, this quote captures the essence of love.

“The greater the love, the greater the tragedy when it’s over.”~Nights in Rodanthe. The loss of such an amazing love is crippling.

“If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.” Oh, Noah. We are definitely birds. Definitely.~The Notebook. This quote shows how deeply Noah loves Ally. He will do anything, be anything to be with her. I’ve read The Notebook over and over. I never get tired of it and I always enjoy the special quotes.

“You should be kissed every day, every hour, every minute.”~The Lucky One. I thought this was an awesome quote that is chock full of emotion.  I mean seriously who wouldn’t want somebody to say this to them? It’s rare to find a love this strong. When you do find it, you have to appreciate it.

“I love you, not just for now, but for always, and I dream of the day that you’ll take me in your arms again.”~Dear John. The letters in Dear John have great emotional depth. It makes you feel their pain. This quote is sad when you think about the separation the couple is going through and is a total tear-jerker!

“Without you in my arms, I feel an emptiness in my soul. I find myself searching the crowds for your face – I know it’s an impossibility, but I cannot help myself.”~Message in a Bottle. He misses her every day, every hour and his mind plays tricks on him, he sees her everywhere.

“I am lost without you. I am soulless, a drifter without a home, a solitary bird in a flight to nowhere. I am all these things, and I am nothing at all. This, my darling, is my life without you. I long for you to show me how to live again.”~ Message in a Bottle. When death separates two lovers, the meaning of your life seems to be over.
