History of Love Sayings

February 6, 2017

If you’ve fallen madly in love with someone, sometimes a simple, “I love you” just won’t suffice. For centuries, writers have dazzled us with their ability to describe the seemingly indescribable feeling of love. Below we explore the origins and meanings of some of our favorite sayings about love.

The phrase originated from the best selling picture book, Guess How Much I Love You by sam McBratney.

The entire passage reads:
‘I love you up to the moon,’ said Little Nutbrown Hare.

He leaned over and kissed him goodnight. Then he lay down close by and whispered with a smile, ‘I love you to the moon and back.’
