Valentine’s Day 2013

“Without love, what are we worth? Eighty-nine cents! Eighty-nine cents worth of chemicals walking around lonely.” Hawkeye Pierce, in M.A.S.H.

“Love is patient, love is kind, is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take in account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in righteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
Charles M. Schulz

“Love – a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker.”

“If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?”

“At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.” Plato

“I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.” Elizabeth Barrett Browning

“I claim there ain’t
Another Saint
As great as Valentine.”
~Ogden Nash

“Soul meets soul on lovers’ lips.” Percy Bysshe Shelley

“Lord! I wonder what fool it was that first invented kissing.” Jonathon Swift

“How did it happen that their lips came together?  How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill?  A kiss, and all was said.”   Victor Hugo

“A man had given all other bliss,
And all his worldly worth for this,
To waste his whole heart in one kiss
Upon her perfect lips.”
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson

“A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.”  Ingrid Bergman

“I’ve kissed guys. I just haven’t felt that thing…. That thing… that moment when you kiss someone and everything around you becomes hazy, and the only thing in focus is you and this person. And you realize that that person is the only person you’re supposed to kiss for the rest of your life. And for one moment you get this amazing gift. And you wanna laugh and you wanna cry, ‘cause you feel so lucky that you’ve found it, and so scared that it’ll go away all at the same time.”   Drew Barrymore as Josie in Never Been Kissed

“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.” Albert Einstein

“May I print a kiss on your lips? I said,
And she nodded her full permission:
So we went to press and I rather guess
We printed a full edition.”
~Joseph Lilientha



“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”  Dr. Seuss

“Love does not dominate; it cultivates.”  Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


Give me a kisse, and to that kisse a score;
Then to that twenty, adde a hundred more;
A thousand to that hundred; so kisse on,
To make that thousand up a million;
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let’s kisse afresh, as when we first begun.
~ Robert Herrick, To Anthea ~


“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”  A. A. Milne

“I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.”

“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”  Aristotle

“There are only four questions of value in life. What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same: only love.”  Don Juan DeMarco

“There is no remedy for love but to love more.”  Thoreau

“I love thee – I love thee,
‘Tis all that I can say
It is my vision in the night,
My dreaming in the day.”
~Thomas Hood

“When I saw you, I was afraid to meet you… When I met you, I was afraid to kiss you… When I kissed you, I was afraid to love you… Now that I love you, I’m afraid to lose you.”  Rene Yasenek

“I was nauseous and tingly all over. I was either in love or I had smallpox.” Woody Allen

”Money can’t buy love, but it improves your bargaining position.”  Christopher Marlowe
