Top 10 Romantic Quotes - Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility Ranks Number 1

sense-and-sensibility-elinor-edward"My heart is, and always will be, yours"

This heart-melting affirmation of love from Edward Ferrars to Elinor Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility has been ranked as the most romantic quote from romantic literature, film and TV drama. Jane Austen's quote beat off rivals from a mostly modern list of nominations, and Jane was the only author to appear twice. In tenth place was Mr Darcy's immortal lines from Pride and Prejudice: "In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."
