What Is the Power of a Great Valentine’s Day Quote?

Ah, love. The elusive and ephemeral chemical experience that all humans want and crave. It’s so powerful that it can be hard to describe. It’s no wonder then that the topic may seem daunting for that very reason—and in particular, the expression of it.

Let’s face it: you don’t want to trip over your words when you’re trying to convey to someone just how much affection you have for them.

But what better time than Valentine’s Day to make an attempt at a grand gesture and expression of affection to the apple of your eye (whether that’s him, her or maybe just yourself.)?

Challenging as it may be, the task becomes much easier if you look to the love letters and sayings of some of the most famous writers, actors, and even philosophers from history. After all, they made names for themselves emoting and putting into words what most of us can’t.
