If you’re looking for a love quote to put on a card to your loved one, than see if any of the 7 cool Valentine’s Day quotes I’ve listed below are of interest to you. They were fun to find! I’m always up for something that strays away from the traditional ‘Roses are red, Violets are blue…’. Maybe one of the quotes below will inspire you to write your own lovely limerick.
7. I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. – Unknown Author
Isn’t this the truth? When someone mentions Valentine’s Day, I think of heart-shaped items, kisses, love letters, and romantic moments. However, the Latin word ‘cupido’ does mean ‘desire’, which is why he’s associated with love and usually Valentine’s Day as well. He is considered to be the god of affection, desire, and erotic love, which makes sense because he is said to be the son of the goddess Venus.
6. Love is missing someone whenever you’re apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you’re close in heart. – Kay Knudsen
I like quotes that rhyme. This one is sweet, it rhymes, and it isn’t cheesy. I think it’s perfect for a Valentine’s Day card to just about anyone, since it isn’t directed toward any particular person. It is merely a statement and a lovely one at that.
5. The Eskimos had fifty-two names for snow because it was important to them: there ought to be as many for love. – Margaret Atwood
It’s hard to imagine that there would be that many names for snow, which is what attracted me first to this quote. I do have to agree with Miss Atwood though, love is definitely important enough to require more than just a single word for it.
