The MBRB Infographic: Not In The Name of Love

Can anyone still use these lines with a straight face?

There’s so much to choose from literature and poetry and films.. why they must everyone quote the same ten lines?

 Enough, no more.

‘Tis not so sweet now, as it was before.

With Valentine’s Day gone by, nothing would please us more than to call a moratorium on love. But failing that can we at least call a moratorium on these parmesan-encrusted lines? We don’t want to see them on Greeting Cards (We don’t want to see Greeting Cards, come to think of it), we don’t want to see them subverted ironically in advertising slogans, we definitely don’t want them quoted to us after three drinks at a bar!

What filmy lines would you be better off without ever hearing again? Tell us in the comments below!

  1. They quote the same lines, because it makes sense. My favouritest line in the whole world from Neruda “Tonight I can write the saddest lines.’The night is shattered and the blue stars shiver in the distance.’Love is so short, forgetting is so long.”

  2. “And of course, I am just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her”
    And also “You had me at hello.”

  3. Haha! We’ve seen the same movies and read the same books it seems! The two lines you mentioned are right there- and as for Neruda and his beautiful sad poetry, keep watching this space!
