As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, it is important to think about the one who has your heart. If you are not good with words, or just haven’t been able to come up with words that are worthy of describing how you feel towards that special someone, this may send you in the right direction.
This holiday is a day for you to appreciate your loved ones and reach deep down, finding and releasing the romantic in you. No matter your plans, whether you are going to a movie, on a trip or merely have special time set aside to split that heart-shaped box of chocolates, you will do well to brush up on your smooth talk with these 7 quotes. If they can’t help you express just how you feel towards your significant other, I don’t know what will.
“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” – Aristotle
“Love doesn’t make the world go ‘round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” – F. P. Jones
“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.” – Henry Van Dyke
“Love is the joy of the good, the wonder of the wise, the amazement of the gods.” – Plato
“Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.” – Vincent Van Gogh
“Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.” – Lao Tzu
“Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility; for it thinks all things lawful for itself, and all things possible.” – T. à Kempis
Love is a difficult concept to grasp and represent through language. If the romantic in you was not awoken by these words, perhaps you have a love language that involves gift giving, physical touch or even just compliments. No matter your love language, be sure to take the time to appreciate your special someone and truly feel what each of these historical figures has expressed about the gift of love.
As Vincent Van Gogh once said, “The way to know life is to love many things.” Perhaps this Valentine’s Day will be about living life and finding new things to love!
