20 of the Most Romantic Star Wars Quotes

Love is strong with the galaxy far, far away.

Star Wars is many things; it’s a story of hope, a fight between good and evil, and a coming-of-age tale. But it’s also a celebration of love. If it weren’t for the passion of many Star Wars characters, we would not have the wealth of stories we do in the galaxy far, far away. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, here are 20 of the most romantic quotes from Star Wars. (Feel free to use one with the nerf herder, rebel princess, or special person in your life.)
