Je T'aime! Crazy Romantic French Quotes

After I graduated from college with a degree in French literature, I lived in France for a year. I fell in love – with the language, the culture, the food, the little cafés, the wine... because how could you not?
Many people love the sound of French. I think it's pretty, but more than anything, I just love the way things sounds when expressed in French. It seems more elegant, more romantic than English, non?

Here are a few lovely French quotes about l'amour that I'm sure you'll want to stick right up on your wall. :)

You'll find my translations below.

I've come to steal a hundred million kisses from you.

– Serge Gainsbourg

I'll be a poet, and you, poetry.

– François Coppée

Love belongs to those who think about it.

–Marcel Achard

Life is full of little happinesses.

– Unknown

Love isn't just a feeling, it's also an art. Some simple word, a caution, a nothing reveals to a woman the grand and sublime artist that can touch her heart without piercing it.

– Honoré de Balzac

What is love? It's when you look at the other person and smile.

– Agnès Desarthe

We fall in love. And as always, when we fall, we get hurt.

– François Weyergans
This one seems like a compilation of several celebrated sayings about love:

May my kisses be the words of love I don't say to you.

We forgive to the extent that we love.

I adore you.

Between two hearts that love each other, there is no need for words.

My love for you is as big as the world.

You are the light of my life.

(Literally "joy of my life," but that sounds weird in English...)

You are my love.

I love you.

You are magnificent!

– Various Authors

My darling.

Just a really cute, cutesy way of nicknaming your boy or girlfriend in France. :) You could also use this as a grandparent/parent to refer to your kid, or even to refer to a pet that you love a lot! <3

I love you more than chocolate mousse.

– Unknown

We only see well with our hearts. The essential is invisible to the eyes.

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
I hope you liked these beautiful quotes :) If you're a Francophile and want more, let me know! I also accept translation requests if you need help figuring out what a certain phrase means. :)
Bon journée à tous! <3 xoxo

"You have devoured everything." – Famous Love Letters
There is no glimpse into the private world of famous people quite like reading their love letters. Suddenly, you see your favorite author or artist at their most vulnerable, using their poetic talents to praise the object of their affections. I found this love letter that I absolutely adore, by one of my favorite French authors, Honoré de Balzac. He clearly employs all his writerly gifts to praise his lover, Ewelina Hańska, a Polish countess who wrote him an anonymous letter after reading his books. This began what turned out to be a decades-long correspondence. They met in person not long after (while she was married to another, a man much older than her), and became lovers. When her husband died, she was finally able to marry Balzac, but he died only 5 months after their union. At least she had these beautiful, beautiful words to look back on. Take a look below. Honoré de Balzac to Countess Ewelina Hańska (June, 1835): MY BELOVED ANGEL, I am nearly mad about you, as much as one can be mad: I cannot bring together two ideas that you do not interpose yourself between them. I can no longer think of nothing but you. In spite of myself, my imagination carries me to you. I grasp you, I kiss you, I caress you, a thousand of the most amorous caresses take possession of me. As for my heart, there you will always be — very much so. I have a delicious sense of you there. But my God, what is to become of me, if you have deprived me of my reason? This is a monomania which, this morning, terrifies me. I rise up every moment say to myself, ‘Come, I am going there!’ Then I sit down again, moved by the sense of my obligations. There is a frightful conflict. This is not a life. I have never before been like that. You have devoured everything. I feel foolish and happy as soon as I let myself think of you. I whirl round in a delicious dream in which in one instant I live a thousand years. What a horrible situation! Overcome with love, feeling love in every pore, living only for love, and seeing oneself consumed by griefs, and caught in a thousand spiders’ threads. O, my darling Eva, you did not know it. I picked up your card. It is there before me, and I talked to you as if you were here. I see you, as I did yesterday, beautiful, astonishingly beautiful. Yesterday, during the whole evening, I said to myself ‘She is mine!’ Ah! The angels are not as happy in Paradise as I was yesterday!
How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
