We here at Babble are in love with love.

From romantic movie quotes to gushy love song lyrics, we’re obsessed with the ooey gooey goodness of love. But love’s not always rainbows and butterflies, sometimes it’s ex-boyfriend bonfires and profile stalking.

Oh love, when it’s good it’s so good and when it’s bad it totally sucks ass. Sometimes the only comfort we have is knowing a broken heart doesn’t discriminate. Rich, poor, young, old, famous, non-famous – we’ve all learned a few things about love along the way.

Check out the best things our favorite celebrities ever said about love after the jump!
