Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination.” Love is a game that two can play and both win. – By Eva Gabor
When love is not madness, it is not love. ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
“What a lover’s heart knows let no man’s brain dispute.”

Where there is great love, there are always wishes.

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
“If my Valentine you won’t be,
I’ll hang myself on your Christmas tree.”  valentines day quotes
Trip over love, you can get up. Fall in love and you fall forever. ~Author Unknown
Love is an ocean of emotions entirely surrounded by expenses. – By Thomas Robert Dewar
“Love is not finding someone to live with; it’s finding someone you can’t live without.” – Rafael Ortiz
Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. ~William Shakespeare
Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.– Zora Neale Hurston
“Valentine’s Day is the poet’s holiday.”
“When love is not madness, it is not love.” —  Pedro Calderón de la Barca
“Where there is love there is life.” – Gandhi
Love cures people – By both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it. – By Dr. Karl Menninger
I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart.– Alice Walker
Grow old with me! The best is yet to be. ~Robert Browning

I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
“My affection for you is not my problem.”
“Love is missing someone whenever you’re apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you’re close in heart.” – Kay Knudsen  valentines day quotes
Another couple thinks that it simple to express love. However, individuals who have been seeing someone long may think that it hard to lucid themselves. Valentine’s Day is the ideal event to reignite the withering ashes of affection. Your dearest is lik/thanksgivingpicturesimages11.html
