Nah, berikut merupakan kumpulan kutipan paling menggetarkan hati setiap pecinta yang ada di dalam The Nightingale and the Rose:

  • “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
  • “In love, it is better to know and be dissapointed, than to not know and always wonder.”
  • “The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.”
  • “What a silly thing Love is. It is not as useful as Logic, for it does not prove anything, and it is always telling one of things that are not going to happen, and making one believe things that are not true. In fact, it is quite unpractical, and, as in this age to be practical is everything, I shall go back to Philosophy and study Metaphysics.”
  • “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
  • “You know it’s love when all you want is that person to be happy; even if you’re not part of their happiness.”
  • “Be happy, be happy; you shall have your red rose. I will build it out of music by moonlight, and stain it with my own heart’s-blood. All that I ask of you in return is that you will be a true lover, for love is wiser than Philosophy, though she is wise, and mightier than Power, though he is mighty.”
  • “You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song but only you can hear.”
  • “Never love anyone who treats like you’re ordinary.”
