Why Give Inspiring Quotes About Love as a Gift?
Would a rose by any other name still smell as sweet?
If you instantly recognized this Shakespearean love quote from "Romeo and Juliet," chances are you are a lover of romantic quotes and sayings. And chances are also that you remember, because this love quote is, well, memorable and one of the most famous love quotes in the world.
One of the things that I like about including Valentine love quotes in my V-Day cards and greetings is that I get to tap into the ideas of some of the greatest minds that ever lived and share their thoughts about love and why it's so important.
Although I'm a writer and could probably make up some sweet love quotes and sayings on my own, somehow it just feels right extending love quotes by the likes of Shakespeare, Keats and others. It's as if I'm tapping into a thought grander than myself, which is the whole purpose behind all the romantic Valentine ideas that we come up with anyway.

The jar is decorated with ribbons and filled with messages that include special love quotes and thoughts about amore stuffed in mini-envelopes. There are 31 envelopes in all with the love sayings printed on special card stock paper.
