It's almost Valentine's Day, so to celebrate I want to share some of the more famous love quotes from literature and poetry with you. Share them with your loved one, and bring a "love"-ly smile to your lover's face!

"Every lover is a warrior, and Cupid has his camps." Ovid, from Pulius Ovidus Naso, circa 20 BC.

"How much better is thy love than wine!" Song of Solomon, Chapter 4, verse 10.

"The voice of the turtledove speaks out. It says: Day breaks, where are you going? Lay off, little bird, why must you scold me? I found my lover in his bed, and my heart was sweet to excess." From the I Ching, Love Songs of the New Kingdom. Circa 1550 BC.

"God loveth a cheerful giver." from the Second Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians, Chapter 9 Verse 7.

Over the world and under the world,

And back at last to you."

      I believe in beauty and love for friendship and nature. I am just a bit more skeptical about lasting romantic love, or for me anyway :).

      Thanks for the comment, Sweetie. Aw, I don't believe it! Someone who responds to beauty as much as you.

      I am a bit jaded and do not exactly believe in love at first sight, but I do believe people can cultivate love and devotion for each other over time. Nice quotes on the true meaning of love.
