You want to shout it from a mountain top — your love is rare! It is so special that a beautiful, yet humdrum, Bible passage like, “Love is patient, love is kind,” won’t hack it halfway up a ridge. If you’re looking for something as unusual as Mt. Kilimanjaro sounds, hike off the First-Corinthians path and consider these lesser-known, striking, yet romantic quotes plucked from literature and pop culture that, if placed perfectly into your vows, can be as satisfying as a view from a canyon.

“Every breath that is in your lungs is a tiny little gift to me.” —The White Stripes, “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground”

“I’m going to pull time apart for you.” —Amy Pond, “Dr. Who”

“I love you. Very, very simply, very truly. You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being.” —Holden, “Chasing Amy”

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” —Emily Bronte, “Wuthering Heights”

“I guess I kind of hate most things. But I never really seem to hate you. So I want to spend the rest of my life with you, is that cool?” —April Ludgate, “Parks and Recreation”

“I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.” —Arwen, “The Fellowship of the Ring.”

“And I need you more than want you. And I want you for all time.” —Jimmy Webb, “Wichita Lineman”

“You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” —Dr. Seuss

“Who, being loved, is poor? “ —Oscar Wilde

“Everybody’s gotta love someone, but I just wanna love you, my dear.” —The Drums, “Down by the Water”

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.” —Robert Fulghum

“Love is like a friendship caught on fire.” —Jeremy Taylor

“The important thing is not the object of love, but the emotion itself.” —Gore Vidal

“I’ve been with you such a long time

You’re my sunshine

And I want you to know

That my feelings are true

I really love you

You’re my best friend”

—Queen, “You’re My Best Friend”

“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” —Judy Garland

“My dearest friend, if you don’t mind, I’d like to join you by your side. Where we could gaze into the stars, and sit together, now and forever. For it is plain as anyone could see, we’re simply meant to be.” —Jack, “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

“But anyway, I think you’re bionic. And I don’t think you’re beautiful, I think you’re beyond it.” —Lil’ Wayne, “Every Girl”

“April, you are the most awesome person I have ever known in my entire life. I vow to protect you from danger. And I don’t care if I have to fight an ultimate fighter, or a bear, or him (points to random guest), or your mom. I would take them down. I’m getting mad right now even thinking about it! I wanna spend the rest of my life, every minute with you, and I am the luckiest man in the galaxy.” —Andy Dwyer, “Parks and Recreation”
