Roses, chocolate, teddy bears and declarations of love everywhere you see. Back in the day (before texting and emails), people used pen and paper to write letters to their loved ones. Take a tip from these people (fictional and real) this Valentine’s Day:
“I have loved in her the image of the beauty of the world, the mystery and beauty of life itself, the beauty and doom of the race of whom I am a child, the images of spiritual purity and pity which I believe in as a boy.” – James Joyce
“Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, Be calm–love me–today–yesterday–what tearful longings for you–you–you–my life–my all–farewell. Oh continue to love me–never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved. Ever thine. Ever mine. Ever ours.” – Ludwig van Beethoven
“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.” – Noah, The Notebook
“You are, and always have been, my dream.” – Nicholas Sparks
“Only thing can resolve conflict is love… Pure love.
Love? What is It?
Most natural painkiller that there is.
LOVE.” – William S. Burroughs
“I love you because I love you, because it would be impossible for me not to love you. I love you without question, without calculation, without reason, good or bad, faithfully with all my heart and soul, and every faculty. Believe it, for it is true. If you cannot believe it, I being at your side, I will make a drastic effort to force you to do so.” – Juliette Drouet
“I was always yours to have.
You were always mine.
We have loved each other in and out of time.” – Maya Angelou, In And Out Of Time
“I love you…past my mind…beyond my heart…I love you from my soul. And that’s the space where only you and God dwell.” – Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion
“…today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.” – Johnny Cash
“What is love? After all, it is quite simple. Love is everything which enhances, widens, and enriches our life. In its heights and in its depths. Love has as few problems as a motor-car. The only problems are the driver, the passengers, and the road.” – Franz Kafka
“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours. ” – Nicholas Sparks
“I have died every day, waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more.” – Christina Perri
“The person you fall in love with really is the man or woman of your dreams, you have dreamed them up before you met them; not out of nothing — nothing comes of nothing — but out of prior experience, both real and wished for.” – Adam Phillips
