10 Literary Quotations for Valentine's Day by Jessica Barrah

It’s Valentine’s Day next week, so here are some quotations from famous authors and thinkers – to inspire a deeper love, to make you think of love in a different way, or even to write on a banner to fly behind the plane you’ve hired as a Valentine’s surprise. Or just in a card, according to your budget.

1. If my Valentine you won’t be,
I’ll hang myself on your Christmas tree.

― Ernest Hemingway, 88 Poems

2. “Right,’ he said, sitting on Harry’s ankles, ‘here is your singing Valentine: His eyes are as green as a fresh pickled toad, His hair is as dark as a blackboard. I wish he was mine, he’s really divine, The hero who conquered the Dark Lord.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

3. “A real love letter is made of insight, understanding, and compassion. Otherwise it’s not a love letter. A true love letter can produce a transformation in the other person, and therefore in the world. But before it produces a transformation in the other person, it has to produce a transformation within us. Some letters may take the whole of our lifetime to write.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh, Your True Home: The Everyday Wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh

4. “You are always new. The last of your kisses was ever the sweetest; the last smile the brightest; the last movement the gracefullest. When you pass’d my window home yesterday, I was fill’d with as much admiration as if I had then seen you for the first time…Even if you did not love me I could not help an entire devotion to you.”
― John Keats, Bright Star: Love Letters and Poems of John Keats to Fanny Brawne

5. “As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

6.“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

7. “There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”
― Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

8.“To love or have loved, that is enough. Ask nothing further. There is no other pearl to be found in the dark folds of life.”
― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

9. “It has made me better loving you … it has made me wiser, and easier, and brighter. I used to want a great many things before, and to be angry that I did not have them. Theoretically, I was satisfied. I flattered myself that I had limited my wants. But I was subject to irritation; I used to have morbid sterile hateful fits of hunger, of desire. Now I really am satisfied, because I can’t think of anything better.”
― Henry James ‘The Portrait Of A Lady’

10. “O love is the crooked thing,
There is nobody wise enough
To find out all that is in it,
For he would be thinking of love
Till the stars had run away
And the shadows eaten the moon.
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
One cannot begin it too soon.”

― William Butler Yeats, ‘Brown Penny’

    The 32-year-old wideout is coming off his best season as a Patriot, finishing with 61 catches for 659 yards and two touchdowns cheap jerseys wholesale. As solid as that production was, Amendola’s work in the postseason was even more impressive, leading Rob Gronkowski to dub him Danny NBA JERSEYS “Playoff” Amendola.

    Amendola battled injuries after signing a big free agent deal to join the Patriots in 2013 following the departure of Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey Wes Welker. As a result of those injuries, the Patriots monitored his play time – as well as his salary – in the ensuing seasons.

    On Monday,NFL jersesys shop US local time, the New England Patriots began their first voluntary activity in the offseason. Many media have focused their attention on the absence of quarterbackShop NFL Jerseys By Team Tom Brady and near-fielder Rob Gronkowski. However, the return of a key player deserves the same level of attention. He is the wide receiver – JulianBuy Customized NFL Jerseys Edelman. On Monday, Edelman appeared in the Gillette Stadium. This was his first step toward a $500,000 training bonus.Shop NFL Hats
    The amount Shop NFL T-Shirtsof this bonus ranks first in the Patriot team. The following is the comparison of Edelman’s total training bonus with other players in the team: Edelman:Shop NFL Hoodie $500,000 in Glonnowski: $250,000 Kickback Goalbacker Kodarel Patterson: $250,000 in defense Endpoints Lawrence Guy: $200,000 kicker Stephen Gestkowski: $100,000Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys security guard Patrick Bell (Clock family): $85,000 In addition to the bonus, Edelman’s appearance is also A positive signal was Minnesota Vikings Jerseysreleased: He was recovering systematically from the anterior cruciate ligament tear injury on August 25 last year. With Brandine Cooks Customized Seattle Seahawks Jerseysbeing traded by the team, Danny Amundola joined the Miami Dolphins again through the free agency market.

    In addition, Edelman’s move Tampa Bay Buccaneersto Gillette Stadium on Monday was also a balance between strength training and Brady’s personal trainer Alex Guerrero. Edelman, who willSeattle Seahawks Hoodie soon turn 32, is a frequent guest of the TB12 Sports Therapy Center founded by Guerrero.
    It is reported that Brady may reduceLos Angeles Chargers Hoodie the frequency of participating in the Patriots training during this offseason, and will pay more attention to his training withBaltimore Ravens T-shirts Guerrero. From the current situation, Edelman does not seem to have similar ideas with Brady. (TB12 is Tom Brady’s English initialsAtlanta Falcons T-shirts and jersey number.)

    Manfred said he didn’t philadelphia phillies jersers know that new york mets jersers the Marlins’ new owners planned to tear it down
    In the early moments of the interview, Le Batard asked Manfred whether he knew prior to the recent sale to the group fronted by Bruce Sherman and Jeter whether the new owners planned to slash payroll. After some prodding (and Le Batard’s saying that the commissioner was lying), Manfred answered, We do not get involved in operating-level decisions in chicago white sox jersers the ownership approval process.

    We did not have chicago cubs jersers player-specific cleveland indians jersers plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that has been in the ownership process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared by us or approved by us. … Those are local decisions that really are not part of the approval process. Those are decisions that the individual owners make, and they do not have to be cleared with us or approved chicago white sox jersers by us.

    Manfred went on to say that he didn’t receive a payroll plan from the Marlins until two days prior to his interview miami marlins jersers with Le Batard. cleveland indians jersers More: We don’t get into, are you going to trade ‘Player X’ or ‘Player Y’ at a particular point in time, nor do we ask them to make st. louis cardinals jersers a commitment to people before they even got in and made an evaluation of their talent level, their ability to win with the people that they have. That’s just not how the ownership process works.

    But some of that may not be true
    Here’s a key excerpt from a must-read Barry Jackson piece in the Miami Herald:

    A source directly involved in the Marlins sales process, after hearing the Le Batard interview, said, miami marlins jersers via text: Commissioner said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders.

    Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter’s plan] called on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million. Widely circulated.

    First off, Project Wolverine is ludicrously self-important and sinister-sounding, as budget strategies go. That’s the name of a secret NSA laboratory deep under the Caballo Mountains in New Mexico, not a financial schematic. Do better, Jeets. Anyhow, there’s enough careful phrasing in Manfred’s comments (operating-level decisions, ‘Player X’ or ‘Player Y’) to give him some plausible deniability. However, the idea that he didn’t know about plans to engage in yet another demo job by Marlins owners strains credulity.
