Who has more of a way with words than the Irish? Here are some short love lines for St. Valentine's Day from the heart of the Irish:
From James Joyce to W.B. Yeats to George Bernard Shaw and down through the generations, they have pondered life's great questions, but also expressed their love beautifully.
- Pulse of my heart, song of my soul, light of my night.
- May you have warm hands on a cold evening.
- It is easy to half the potato when there is love.
- Love him when he least deserves it, that's when he most needs it.
- Love makes time pass, beware time making love pass.
- Always trust, when mistrust comes love goes out.
- I believe there is a sun when it is not shining, I believe there is a God when I cannot see him, I believe there is love when I feel it not.
- Beware an Irishman who loves his wife the most but his mother the longest.
- Trouble in love hates nothing more than a smile.
- Love is like a lifeboat on the stormy sea of life.
