We know, you probably not in the mood for a list of Valentine quotes. But come on! Love inspires poets, humorists, skeptics and philosophers to try and capture through words the wonder and mystery of this powerful human emotion. Such quotes can be as deep as this one by the British philosopher Bertrand Russel: “Love is something far more than desire for sexual intercourse; it is the principal means of escape from the loneliness which afflicts most men and women throughout the greater part of their lives.” They can also be as hilarious as this one by the film director Woody Allen: “I was nauseous and tingly all over. I was either in love or I had smallpox.”
