Summer Love Quotes


"All we need is the truth in our hand.
Someone to call a friend.
Never fear the darkness.
All we need is just the sun in the sky.
And the hope of a summer to come with the meaning of love."

Robert Burton

"What is life, when wanting love? Night without a morning; love's the cloudless summer sun, nature gay adorning."

Swedish Proverb

"A life without love is like a year without summer."


"Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year—it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul."

Francis Thompson

"Summer set lip to earth's bosom bare,
And left the flushed print in a poppy there"

Edna St. Vincent Millay

"I know I am but summer to your heart, and not the full four seasons of the year."

William Shakespeare

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall Death brag thou wand'rest in his shade
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee."

Alexander Pope

"But see, the shepherds shun the noonday heat,
The lowing herds to murmuring brooks retreat,
To closer shades the panting flocks remove;
Ye gods! And is there no relief for love?"

Bern Williams

"If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance."

Carl Sandburg

"Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswered questions."

Nicholas Sparks, "The Notebook"

"Summer romances begin for all kinds of reasons, but when all is said and done, they have one thing in common. They're shooting stars, spectacular moments of light from the heavens, a fleeting glimpse of eternity, and in a flash they're gone."

Kenny Chesney

"It's a smile, it's a kiss, it's a sip of wine ... it's summertime!"

Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, "Summer Nights"

"Summer loving had me a blast
Summer loving happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me
Met a boy cute as can be
Summer days drifting away to oh oh the summer nights"
