#Valentine's Day

We were given: Two hands to hold. Two legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else for us to find.

<h4><a href="/quotes/category/Love">Funny Love Quotes</a> to Prepare for Valentine's Day </h4> Have you noticed how the retail market skips directly from one holiday to the next? Two days after Christmas, my local store already had installed a complete <a href="/quotes/category/Valentine's+Day">Valentine's Day</a> display to tempt the serial shopper. At first I resisted the implications, but as the day draws closer I find myself sucked into the spirit of the season. February is just around the corner, and <a href="/quotes/category/Valentine's+Day">V-Day</a> will be fast approaching. This seems an appropriate time to review some memorable funny love quotes that you can use to impress your friends and fill the silence of those relationships that present an awkward moment on the <a href="/quotes/category/Valentine's+Day">Day of Love</a>. Legendary comedian<a href="/quotes/author/Mort/Sahl"> Mort Sahl</a> has a long history of penning memorable <a href="http://www.great-quotes.com/">quotes</a> - including those written to spice up the speeches of <a href="/quotes/author/John+F./Kennedy">President Kennedy</a>. He observed, <em>&quot;The bravest thing that men do is love women&quot; </em>which could be a precursor to the appropriate analogy, <em>&quot;Love is like a game of chess: One false move and you're mated.&quot;</em> Indeed, the <a href="/quotes/category/Love">game of love</a> is a popular reference in<a href="/quotes/category/Funny+AND+Love"> funny love quotes</a>. Hungarian actress <a href="/quotes/author/Eva/Gabor">Eva Gabor</a> noted,<em> "Love is a game that two can play and both can win."</em> Scottish philosopher <a href="/quotes/author/Thomas/Carlyle">Thomas Carlyle</a> is credited with the infamous quote,<em> &quot;Love is the only game that is not called on account of darkness."</em> This quote <em>"came to light"</em> during a recent power outage when a group of us huddled around a fireplace recalling that the pilgrims certainly found other ways to amuse themselves on cold winter nights in the absence of video games and internet connections. Singer and entertainment personality <a href="/quotes/author//Cher">Cher</a> has more than a little experience with men, leading to the conclusion, <em>&quot;Husbands are like fires - they go out when they're left unattended."</em> This seems an opportune segue to a line from comedian <a href="/quotes/author/Groucho/Marx">Groucho Marx</a>, whose repertoire contained a plethora of<a href="/quotes/category/Funny+AND+Love"> funny love quotes</a>; among them,<em> &quot;One of the best hearing aids a man can have is an attentive wife."</em> Like <a href="/quotes/author//Cher">Cher</a>, his comment serves not only as an amusing anecdote, but perhaps a hint to pay close attention to the quality of one's relationship. <a href="/quotes/author/Groucho/Marx">Groucho</a> also quipped, <em>"Anyone who says he can see through women is missing a lot,&quot;</em> and we can almost picture him tipping his ever-present cigar as he delivers the line. <a href="/quotes/author/William/Shakespeare">Shakespeare</a> contemporary <a href="/quotes/author/Christopher/Marlowe">Christopher Marlow</a> wryly observed the timeless fact,<em> &quot;Money can't buy love, but it improves your bargaining position.&quot;</em> Many have added<a href="/funny_quotes.htm"> humorous twists</a> to the phrase, but we like this version a quote by American Playwright <a href="/quotes/author/Clare+Boothe/Luce">Clare Boothe Luce</a>: <em>"Money can't buy happiness, but it can make you awfully comfortable while you're being miserable."</em> While we're on the British Isles, how about some<a href="/quotes/category/funny+AND+love"> funny love quotes</a> from <a href="/quotes/author/Thomas/Dewar">Thomas Robert Dewar</a>, whose claim to fame was helping create the fine Scotch that bears his family name. His extravagant life as a Scottish baron prompted the confession,<em> &quot;Love is an ocean of emotions entirely surrounded by expenses.&quot; </em>This telling remark is supported by the observation: <em>&quot;Judge not a man by his clothes, but by his wife's clothes.&quot;</em> <a href="/quotes/author/Thomas/Dewar">Baron Dewar</a> perhaps spent more time tipping the glass than he did tracking his wife's spending habits. You think? Whether you are in a relationship, blissfully free of encumbrances, or strategizing a successful seducion of the object of your desires, we hope these <a href="/quotes/category/funny+AND+love">funny love quotes</a> will help guide you through the murky waters of romance as February 14th looms ever closer. Perhaps one of our favorite comments comes from Canadian writer <a href="/quotes/author/Laurence/Peter">Laurence Peter</a> who offers the practical advice,<em> &quot;It's better to have loved and lost than to have to do forty pounds of laundry a week.&quot;</em> Kudos to Canada for their optimistic outlook on the labyrinth of love.

<a href="/quotes/category/Valentine's+Day">Valentine's Day</a> is upon us! Are you excited? In a state of panic? Depressed? Here at great-quotes.com we're here to help, not just with <a href="/quotes/category/Love">love quotes</a>, but because we care, we have some suggestions for making the day as successful as possible. If it is true that <em>"There is only one happiness in life--to love and be loved,"</em> as suggested by one of <a href="/quotes/author/George/Sand">George Sand's</a> love quotes (did you know he was a woman, by the way?), then we should be putting 100% into making our relationship the best it can be. I agree with this <a href="/quotes/category/Love">love quote</a> by <a href="/quotes/author/Robert+A./Heinlein">Robert Heinlein</a>, <em>"Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own."</em> So here's <strong>Suggestion #1</strong>: Compliment him/her. Even if you don't mean it. "That dress looks fabulous on you" or "Thanks for buying my favorite beer" goes a long way toward making a person feel good about themselves - and you. <a href="/quotes/author/Albert/Einstein">Albert Einstein</a> was a genius in many things, not just science. One of his love quotes is, <em>"Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love"</em> brings us to <strong>Suggestion #2</strong> - if you want your sweetie to know how you feel, write a little love note and put it in their purse/briefcase, lunchbox, or someplace surreptitious where they will eventually discover it. You can use a well-known love quote like<em> "I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach,"</em> so eloquently penned by <a href="/quotes/author/Elizabeth+Barrett/Browning">Elizabeth Barrett Browning.</a> Or perhaps, <em>"For you see, each day I love you more. Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow,"</em> one of the <em><strong>great love quotes</strong></em> penned by <a href="/quote/2220824">Rosemonde Gerard</a>. This suggestion is really great if you run out of time or are feeling a financial pinch. Is there anything more romantic on <a href="/quotes/category/Valentine's+Day">Valentine's Day</a> than a marriage proposal? If this is the year for this magical moment, remember <strong>Suggestion #3</strong> - say the right thing.  <a href="/quotes/author/Antoine+de/Saint-Exupery">Antoine de Saint-Exupery</a> offers an excellent love quote for this situation, <em>"Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction."</em> Who could resist a big <em>"thumbs up"</em> to that? If your intended is a film buff, they may be interested to know that <a href="/quotes/author/Judy/Garland">Judy Garland</a> wrote a book of poems, which included love quotes such as,<em> "For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul." </em>Major swoon factor. <a href="/quotes/author/Mark/Twain">Mark Twain's</a> summary: <em>"Love: the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired"</em> reminds us that even if you aren't actually <em>"in"</em> a relationship, you can make someone feel wanted and loved.<strong> Suggestion #4</strong> - bake something! My (unattached) teenage daughter will soon be consumed with making cookies, brownies, and chocolates for friends she cares about. No matter what age, everyone likes to be remembered - not just on <a href="/quotes/category/Valentine's+Day">Valentine's Day</a>, but every day! Remember that, <em>"To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world."</em>   How about one of <a href="/quotes/author/Sam/Keen">Sam Keen's</a> love quotes, <em>"You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly,"</em> may remind you how messy your lover's apartment always seems to be. <strong>Suggestion #5</strong>, arrange to have a house cleaner come to their place and tidy things up a bit - we can't all be Martha Stewart! <br> <br> My apologies if your <a href="/quotes/category/Valentine's+Day">Valentine's Day</a> will be spent alone. You may feel that, <em>"Love is only a dirty trick played on us to achieve continuation of the species."</em> as suggested by one of <a href="http://www.great-quotes.com/quotes/author/W.+Somerset/Maugham">W. Somerset Maugham's</a> love quotes. If this is the case, whatever you do, DON'T go to a bar or restaurant and watch lovers canoodling. Instead, see a <a href="/quotes/movies">funny movie</a> or action film ... it's a great way to take your mind off the day and nobody will see you silently weeping in the dark. Our last suggestion is from songwriter and musician <a href="/quotes/author/Stephen/Stills">Stephen Stills</a>: <em>"Love the one you're with."</em> <strong>Happy Valentine's Day!</strong><br>
