<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. Â <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> Â
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 cleanerÂ come to their place and tidy things up a bit - we can't all be Martha Stewart! <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>
