The spoken word is commanding in its power to move us.

Nowhere is truer than the movies — albeit the good ones — that leave us emotionally invested in the lives of the characters. In tribute of V-Day this Thursday, we're sharing our favourite lines from romantic films that made our toes curl or sent a tear rolling.

TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON

"I love you. You're my only reason to stay alive... if that's what I am."

— Edward (Robert Pattinson) to Bella (Kristen Stewart)

ON GOLDEN POND

"Listen to me, mister. You're my knight in shining armour. Don't forget it."

— Ethel (Katharine Hepburn) to Norman (Henry Fonda)

"Don't forget I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her."

— Anna (Julia Roberts) to William (Hugh Grant)

TITANIC

"Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you ..."

— Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) to Rose (Kate Winslet)

GONE WITH THE WIND

"No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how."

— Rhett (Clark Gable) to Scarlett (Vivien Leigh)

— Latika (Freida Pinto) to Jamal (Dev Patel)

DIRTY DANCING

"I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you."

— Baby (Jennifer Grey) to Johnny (Patrick Swayze).

CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON

— Noah (Ryan Gosling) to Allie (Rachel McAdams)

A BEAUTIFUL MIND
