Happy Valentines Day

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 – 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. 

Love is a symbol of eternity.  It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end. 

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.  ~Albert Einstein

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.  ~William Shakespeare

Loving is not just looking at each other, it’s looking in the same direction.  ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939

Trip over love, you can get up.  Fall in love and you fall forever. 

We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. 

Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.
