Valentine’s day is definitely a holiday that elicits mixed feelings from individuals–which makes sense. I tackle this holiday from a literary standpoint. For me, I view this holiday as the opportunity to share beautiful poems and quotes with other people. If those things happen to be about love, then that’s all the more thematically effective!
Here are five quotes about love from five famous authors.
1. “Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.”―Ursula K. Le Guin

2. “I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart”― Alice Walker

3. “Who, being loved, is poor?”―Oscar Wilde
4. “Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”―NEIL Gaiman

5. “Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.”―Zelda Fitzgerald
