Colin and Penelope in 'Bridgerton' Season 3

Actions might normally speak louder than words, but in Bridgerton, the dialogue—and sometimes even a look—can be just as swoon-worthy and titillating as the period drama's steamy love scenes themselves. Case in point: "I burn for you." Among other Bridgerton quotes, these four words of passion uttered in Season 1 left us burning for a love like Simon and Daphne's—but it's not the only quote that's set our hearts aflutter these past three seasons. From Lord Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sharma to Penelope Featherington and more characters from the Netflix series, we've rounded up more than 75 romantic, inspiring, empowering and, of course, memorable Bridgerton quotes.
