Need a quote for a Valentine’s message? Over the next few days I’ll be posting quips, quotes, and thoughts about love, marriage, and romance from the famous and not so famous.
Love is the wisdom of the fool
and the folly of the wise.
It is best to love wisely, no doubt:
but to love foolishly is better than
not to be able to love at all.
I like not only to be loved
but also to be told I am loved.
When you love me, I gave you a
whole sun and stars to play with.
I gave you eternity in a single moment.
I loved you, so I drew these tides of men
into my hands and wrote my will across
the sky in stars.
I loved you ere I knew you;
know you now, and having known you,
love you better still.
Better by far you should forget and smile
than that you should remember and be sad
There is no remedy for love but to love more.
Love is the magician, the enchanter, that
changes worthless things to joy, and makes
royal kings and queens of common clay.
True love is the ripe fruit of a lifetime.
