Robert Burns wrote to a friend:
“I myself can affirm, both from bachelor and wedlock experience, that Love is the Alpha and the Omega of human enjoyment. All the pleasures, all the happiness of my humble Compeers, flow immediately from this delicious source. It is the spark of celestial fire which lights up the wintry hut of Poverty, and makes the chearless mansion, warm, comfortable and gay.”
“What signifies the life o’ man,
An’ ’twere na for the lasses O”
(Robert Burns – Green Grow the Rashes)
Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you choose to celebrate it or not, I hope there is at least one person in your life who loves you – your own beautiful self 🙂 . All I can say is I wish we managed to remember and dedicate more than one day a year to those we love and do something nice for/with them as often as possible. Have a wonderful day!
