Kingkiller Chronicle - Seven words to make a woman love you

Kingkiller Chronicle is my favourite fantasy series. And one of my favourite thing about these books is when Kvothe meets Denna. Often they meet unexpectedly when all hopes of Kvothe have faded, at places where he wouldn't have expected her to be, whether it's  Trebon, Eolian or Severen.

   I love how Pat describes the conversations between Kvothe and Denna. Kvothe being careful not to hurt Denna. There is so much going on in his mind while Denna is talking to him. But since you're obviously here for the charming seven words I have a  list of them. 

   We first heard about it when Elodin asked Kvothe what are 7 words to make a woman love you. I was eager for a minute thinking what Kvothe would say. But he was speechless at the time. And I forgot about it since then. 
    But Kvothe has been throwing 7-word phrases about quite often. Now we know when he stumbles across one because Denna mentions it... In addition, she said that he does it quite often. Meaning there are some words that he has said that we don't know about, or that she hasn't mentioned. 

I have found many sentences where Kvothe says seven words. Sometimes even Denna says those too.
