VALENTINE’S DAY 2014 QUOTES

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Valentine’s Day is a day particularly celebrated by the world.  “Love” is the theme of the day–whether that “love” is true is quite a different story.

Valentine’s Day is usually associated with romance, love and…buying gifts?  At least in America, where Valentine’s Day is the second-biggest gift-giving holiday after Christmas.

Where did Valentine’s Day originate?

Valentine’s Day

St. Valentine’s Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. Several martyrdom stories were invented for the various Valentines that belonged to February 14, and added to later martyrologies.

The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines“).

Valentine’s Day is usually a much more anticipated holiday among the fairer sex.  For men, the day is a more of a duty.  For women, it’s a day of expectation, anticipation and hopefully, celebration.

With that in mind, we’ve collected 37 Valentine’s Day quotes–including quotes about love, romance, hugs and kisses. These quotes come from actors, movies, books, songs, the Bible, writers as well as comedians.

Some are serious; some are funny.

NEW YEARS 2014 QUOTES

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

New Year’s is a time particularly celebrated by the world. New Year’s Day and New Year’s Eve are both times of new beginnings. A time to take stock and a time to resolve to change those inconvenient habits or ways.

New Year’s Day is also a time of taking a day off and getting ready for the new year. That new year lies in front of us beckoning.

Reflection is usually the name of the game on New Year’s Eve–unless your past year wasn’t so great. In which case, you’re probably one of those who do things to distract yourself from thinking of the past year.

Perhaps that’s why New Year’s Eve parties are so popular?

No wonder the world celebrates the New Year. Hope usually triumphs on New Year’s Eve when making resolutions for the coming year. It makes it easier to forget the failures and disappointments of the year just completed.

With that in mind, we’ve collected 30 New Year’s quotes: 18 for New Year’s Day and 12 more for New Year’s Eve. These quotes come from the Bible, actors, movies, books, writers as well as comedians. We’ve even included 2 bonus quotes sprinkled throughout the 30: for a total of 32 quotes!

Enjoy and Happy New Year!

–Michael Josephson, whatwillmatter.com

Mark Twain

“I do think New Year’s resolutions can’t technically be expected to begin on New Year’s Day, don’t you? Since, because it’s an extension of New Year’s Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year’s Day isn’t a good idea as you can’t eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second.”
Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones’s Diary

Love gives us hope… Hope for the New Year. That’s what New Year’s Eve is to me. Hope and a great party!”
–Sam, New Year’s Eve (2011)

You look at the person next to you and kiss them and say “Happy New year!” and you have a moment of happiness. I don’t wan to be reminded at that exact moment of my own mortality.”
