Valentine's Day Quotes

Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, can be a day of love or dread because of its emphasis on roses, chocolate, candlelight and expensive dates. However, it can also simply be about taking special care to show your love and appreciation for the people who are special to you. Many great religious thinkers and spiritual texts have offered thoughts on the power of love In the name of deepening the meaning of this day,I compiled some of the most loving wisdom.

Love is a consistent passion to give, not a meek persistent hope to receive.The only demand of life is the privilege to love all.

A lover is always accused of something. But when he finds his love, whatever was lost in the looking comes back completely changed.
