From the Publisher: Happy Valentine’s Day or Ground Hog Day?

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” – Charles M. Schulz
“Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, it is not pompous, It is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”

“Doubt thou the stars are fire, Doubt that the sun doth move. Doubt truth to be a liar, But never doubt I love.” William Shakespeare
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”- Mahatma Gandhi
“They invented hugs to let people know you love them without saying anything.”- Bill Keane
“A kiss makes the heart young again and wipes out the years.” – Rupert Brooke
“Love will find a way through paths where wolves fear to prey.” – Lord Byron
“We are most alive when we’re in love.” – John Updike
“How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said” – Victor Hugo
“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.” – Thomas Merton
“If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.” – Maya Angelou.
Whatever your definition of Love may be, recognition and respect will carry the day. And Charles Schultz is probably correct when he says, “A little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”

Your decision can be love or a repeat of a defensive, unloving attitude. Candy is so much sweeter!
