Some famous words on love to ponder on Valentine's Day On Valentine's Day, let work take a back seat, it is time to love. Here are some quotes to encourage you to rediscover love. St. Augustine Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all. John Lennon Love is the flower you've got to let grow. Pablo Picasso Love is the greatest refresh- ment in life. Shakespeare My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee The more I have, for both are infinite. Samuel Taylor Coleridge Sympathy constitutes friend- ship; but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion. Each strives to be the other, and both together make up one whole. The saint of true love Valentine's Day: Romantics will be celebrating February 14. Every February 14 many of us celebrate Valentine's Day by giving flowers, chocolates and cards to those we love or aspire to cherish. Approximately 150 million Valentine's Day cards are exchanged annually, making it the second most popular card-sending event after Christmas. But it's not just about the giving and receiving of a val- entine, behind the commer- cial aspect lies the reason for the celebration. So who was Saint Valentine? There are many stories and myths, just search the web and you'll be inundated with information. It seems the most common legend is that Valentine was a priest who served during third century Rome. The emperor at that time, Claudius II, decided that single men made better soldiers than those who were married so he out- lawed marriage for young men in the hope of building a stronger military base. Supposedly, Valentine felt this decree just wasn't fair and chose to marry young couples secretly. When the emperor heard about Valentine's actions he had him put to death. Another legend has it that Valentine was an impr- isoned man who fell in love with his jailer's daughter. Before he was put to death he sent the first valentine himself when he wrote her a letter and signed it Your Valentine, words still used on cards today. Perhaps we'll never know the true identity and story behind the man named St. Valentine, but this much is for sure, February is the month to celebrate love. The stories all emphasise his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and romantic figure. Share romance the healthy way Valentine's Day doesn't only have to be about chocolates, flowers and cards. There's healthy ways of showing you care. Instead of investing in a huge bunch of expens- ive red roses that will be dead in a few days, put together a herb garden. Ready-made ones are available from garden centres or you can buy some small matching pots and plant them with your loved one's favour- ite herbs. They will not only smell fabulous, but they are great for your health and will last longer than cut flowers. Basil is high in iron, marjoram contains com- pounds with anti- inflammatory and antibacterial properties and oregano is good for stomach upsets and indigestion. A glass of red wine with dinner can help you and your loved one relax at the end of the day. But there can be too much of a good thing, and drinking too much wine or alcohol can leave you feeling less than relaxed the following morning. Besides, your Valentine's Day will be much less enjoyable for both you and your loved one, if the night is spent trying to accommodate someone who has had one too many. If your valentine is a huge fan of chocolates and life wouldn't be worth living if you didn't stump up with a big box of them, opt for ones made of dark chocolate. Those that contain more than 70 per cent cocoa solids are a good source of antioxidants, which may help to pro- tect against heart dis- ease and cancer. Make your loved one laugh. Laughing together gets the feel-good chemi- cals racing around your body, which will not only make you feel good about being in each other's company, but will also do great things for your health. Laughing triggers the release of pain-killing chemicals endorphins, boosts your immune sys- tem, relaxes your muscles, improves your mood and relieves stress. Try taking your valen- tine to a funny movie or comedy show, or hire a hilarious DVD. Above all, enjoy Febru- ary 14 with your special someone.
