Noah Calhoun in “The Notebook”
Ryan Gosling’s character narrated a letter he wrote about “the best love” in this 2004 love story classic. Allie Hamilton (played by Rachel McAdams) reads it; Time magazine ranked it as one of the top 10 love letters.
“My Dearest Allie, I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I'll be seeing you.”
The Prime Minister in “Love, Actually”
Hugh Grant’s character played a minor role in this 2003 love story that is made up of multiple smaller stories. But he delivered a stirring monologue, as quoted by Filmsite:
“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around.”

Alabama Whitman in “True Romance”
In the closing credits of this 1993 Quentin Tarantino film, Whitman (played by Patricia Arquette) told what she thinks romance is, set on a scene of the couple and their son frolicking on a beach.
"I had to come all the way from the highways and byways of Tallahassee, Florida, to Motor City, Detroit, to find my true love. If you gave me a million years to ponder, I would never have guessed that true romance and Detroit would ever go together. And to this day, the events that followed all seem like a distant dream. But the dream was real and was to change our lives forever. I kept asking Clarence why our world seemed to be collapsing and everything seemed so (expletive). And he'd say, 'That's the way it goes, but don't forget, it goes the other way too.' That's the way romance is. Usually, that's the way it goes. But every once in awhile, it goes the other way too."
