Happy St Valentine’s Day!

Wedding Day

 

 

Love is a lot of things…and so is St Valentine’s Day.

Here are some of my favorite quotes about both:

“This is true love, you think this happens every day?”

~Westly, The Princess Bride

 

“You know, there are some things that are actually harder to do with two people. Like, monologues.”

~Liz Lemon, on being alone on Valentine’s Day

 

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

~Lao Tzu

 

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
~ Robert Fulghum, True Love

 

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.”
~ Alfred Tennyson

 

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
~ C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

 

“You’re the one who is weak. You will never know love or friendship. And I feel sorry for you.”
~ J.K. Rowling

 

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

 

“Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”
~ William Shakespeare, Hamlet

 

I love you also means I love you more than anyone loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you, or will love you, and also, I love you in a way that I love no one else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else.”
~ Jonathan Safran Foer

 

“It was love at first sight, at last sight, at ever and ever sight.”
~ Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

 

Happy Saint Valentine’s Day to all. If you are married, engaged or think you have found the one, congratulations. If you are searching,  have fun today. Eat some chocolate, drink some wine and have a laugh or three.
