90+ Valentine’s Day Quotes And Sayings

“Ah, love!” It truly is a “many splendored things,” and rightly so. What better day to celebrate it than on the Day of Hearts, Valentine’s Day. A genuinely ‘red-letter day’ is a romantic holiday that allows everyone to express our true feelings to all our loved ones. Of course, most of us have that one special someone who we consider our “Valentine.”

Traditionally celebrated on February 14th, Valentine’s Day has its roots from an early Christian feast honoring a third-century martyr named Saint Valentine. Some even attribute the influence of the Roman fertility feast of Lupercalia, dedicated to the Roman god of agriculture, Faunus. The Catholic Church replaced that pagan feast with St. Valentine’s during the purging years.

Only in the mid-15th century did Valentine become connected to romantic love and lovers. In 18th-century England, this tradition flourished to a more structured event where lovers profess their love for one another, offering gifts of flowers (usually red roses), sweets, and love-letters known as valentines.

The love letters had their beginnings from an old tradition of gentlemen picking out names of ladies from a jar to form couples for a public ceremony. These letters are the precursors of the contemporary Valentine cards, full of romantic Valentine’s quotes and declarations.

Modern Valentine’s Day symbols are the heart shape, red roses, cupid, doves or love-birds, and in some countries like Italy, keys (for unlocking the heart). The day is not a non-working holiday, but a significant commercial event nonetheless, surpassed only by Christmas in terms of merchandise turnover and economic value.

Furthermore, Valentine’s Day is celebrated worldwide, even arguably surpassing Christmas and Halloween in popularity altogether.

Flowers, particularly red roses, become ridiculously expensive during Valentine’s. Chocolates and other confectionery come in highly-imaginative and stylized (heart-shaped) containers and forms. Millions upon millions of greeting cards (commercial and private) are printed and exchanged.

Restaurants and food houses are filled to the brim with lines running around street corners, with theaters, hotels, and inns fully booked. Most of the establishments offer Valentine’s discounts and specials.

Groceries and supermarkets offer coupons commemorating the event. Traffic jams, busy streets, and even other transportation terminals (airports, train stations, piers) are full of people frantic to celebrate Valentines with their loved ones.

Weddings are scheduled on Valentine’s Day, and anniversaries celebrated lavishly or privately. People look forward to this day, evident in how they are decked out, and the women are dainty and beautiful, the men dashingly handsome.

Valentine’s day is so ingrained into modern society that songs, books, movies, and other literary works are full of references. There are even video games inspired by this occasion, although these are of the restricted variety.

However, they observed, Valentine is the celebration of the heart, of love romantic in nature, between two individuals struck by that awesome power that can move mountains and span rivers.

We have put together a compilation of the most beautiful and romantic Valentine’s Day quotes that you can use for your ‘valentines’ or greeting cards.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
