Tell your Valentine quote

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: that word is love.
Sopocles, Greek dramatist

Must love be ever treated with profaneness as a mere illusion? Or with coarseness as a mere impulse? Or with fear as a mere disease? Or with shame as a mere weakness? Or with levity as a mere accident? Whereas it is a great necessity, lying at the foundation of human existence, morality and happiness, mysterious, universal, inevitable as death.
Harriet Martineau.
Love…. is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.
Helen Keller
