I love Jane Austen, lots of quotes there.  My favorite is “it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife”.  Persuasion is “You pierce my soul.  I am half agony, half hope…I have loved none but you.”

As for quotes. This is long, so I’m sorry! I don’t think anyone else posted it, but sorry if it’s a repeat:

“I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labour has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.” – The Fault in Our Stars, John Greene

Using this on front of order of service. Pride and prejudice is my favourite book:

I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.
