We’ve all experienced the first “love of our life.” For some, it was in middle school or high school. For others, it may have come later. Either way, there’s nothing like the feeling of first love. Butterflies in your stomach, sleeplessness, daydreaming, and whirlwinds of emotion all sweep you off your feet.
The nostalgia of first love sticks with us through the ages. It inspires poetry, stories, and even epic novels. It inspired some people to travel thousands of miles, and others write beautiful songs. No matter where and when you’ve experienced your “first love” you are sure to have memories of it for the rest of your life. Here, some famous minds have a few things to say on the subject of their first love.

“There’s no love like the first.”

“My first love, I’ll never forget, and it’s such a big part of who I am, and in so many ways, we could never be together, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not forever. Because it is forever.”
“The loss of young first love is so painful that it borders on the ludicrous.”
“If you think back to your first love, you always remember them and little things always remind you of them.”
“A first love always occupies a special place.”
