Valentine’s Day is this Sunday, February 14 and an annual holiday in which couples celebrate their love and affection for one another. Most of us are used to giving chocolates, jewelry, flowers and greeting cards, but don’t forget our words can serve as a gift too (and are a lot less expensive).
Why not consider using one or more of the following romantic quotes this year on your significant other? Although these quotes were made by famous people over the course of time, there’s never a wrong or out-of-date way to declare your love for someone.
Whether you’re the serious kind or more on the humorous side, you may want to consider using one of these (remember, though, to give credit where credit is due.)
