That music and the lyrical aspects of Razorblade Romance is so personal to me that, now with me being grown up a bit and meeting new people and doing new things, it makes me look at the same things I was writing about back in the day through a different colored lens.

Ville Valo, musician

In the West audiences think I am a stereotyped action star, or that I always play hitmen or killers. But in Hong Kong, I did a lot of comedy, many dramatic films, and most of all, romantic roles, lots of love stories. I was like a romance novel hero.

Chow Yun-Fat, actor

Therapy was the biggest romance of my life.

What in the blue star-blazes did you see in Jason? he asked, still forcefully but with his frustration and jealousy under better control. For one thing, Djetth, he wasn't trying to kill me! (Marsh, heroine of Insufficient Mating Material)

Rowena Cherry,

Damn me to hell or take me to heaven, but for Gods sake, do it now....

Nora Roberts, author

Poor fellow! I think he is in love with you.' I am not aware of it. And to me it is one of the most odious things in a girl's life, that there must always be some supposition of falling in love coming between her and any man who is kind to her... I have no ground for the nonsensical vanity of fancying everybody who comes near me is in love with me.

Marilu Henner, actress

He believes in romance. He isn't merely going through the mechanical movements of a man in an exciting situation. He is, vitally and positively squeezing the last drop of delight from living the best life he knows in the best way he can.

Leslie Charteris, writer

I know that some endeavor to throw the mantle of romance over the subject and treat woman like some ideal existence, not liable to the ills of life. Let those deal in fancy who have nothing better to deal in; we have to do with sober, sad realities, with stubborn facts.

Adam Arkin, actor

It is not because I do not love my adopted land - it is the natural feeling of one far from home, who remembers those happy, carefree days when life flowed at full tide, without responsibility, flashing past one like the drama in a fascinating story of adventure and romance.

Erich von Stroheim, actor

Any walk through a park that runs between a double line of mangy trees and passes brazenly by the ladies toilet is invariably known as Lover's Lane.


The concept of romantic love affords a means of emotional manipulation which the male is free to exploit, since love is the only circumstance in which the female is (ideologically) pardoned for sexual activity.

Kate Millet,

Writers of novels and romance in general bring a double loss to their readers; robbing them of their time and money; representing men, manners, and things, that never have been, or are likely to be.

Mary Wortley Montagu, writer

To say the word Romanticism is to say modern art -- that is, intimacy, spirituality, color, aspiration towards the infinite, expressed by every means available to the arts.

Charles Baudelaire, poet

Love stories are only fit for the solace of people in the insanity of puberty. No healthy adult human being can really care whether so-and-so does or does not succeed in satisfying his physiological uneasiness by the aid of some particular person or not.

Aleister Crowley, critic

Rather would I have the love songs of romantic ages, rather Don Juan and Madame Venus, rather an elopement by ladder and rope on a moonlight night, followed by the father's curse, mother's moans, and the moral comments of neighbors, than correctness and propriety measured by yardsticks.

Emma Goldman, activist

And what's romance? Usually, a nice little tale where you have everything As You Like It, where rain never wets your jacket and gnats never bite your nose and it's always daisy-time.

Orlando Bloom, actor

Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.

Carolyn Gold Heilbrun, author

I'm a romantic -- a sentimental person thinks things will last -- a romantic person hopes against hope that they won t.


As a rule of thumb, it was always safer if the Commander-in-Chief formulated a risky plan.

Rowena Cherry,

For me, romance isn't an over-the-top act. It's someone offering to help and to support me. Or if that person thinks I'm making the wrong decision, he'll tell me. I want him to be honest, because being that honest takes a lot of guts.

Thora Birch, actress

For me, I sort of felt like it was kind of a fairytale... but an interesting one. I don't know of anybody who has had a romance quite like this, but I certainly know people who have stuck it out.

Ryan Gosling, actor

The lovers of romance can go elsewhere for satisfaction but where can the lovers of truth turn if not to history?

I think that musicians should never forget about the intimacy of bringing two people together, and the aesthetic transference where you're almost vicariously involved in a romance between other people.

Romance and novel paint beauty in colors more charming than nature, and describe a happiness that humans never taste. How deceptive and destructive are those pictures of consummate bliss!

Beverly Jones, writer

Virginia Woolf, author
