    Need non-romantic love quotes for Valentine's cards

    Hi, all!

    I am making some Valentine's cards for a swap on another board. I have already chosen my paper - handmade paper in two colors: natural and brown - and I know that I want to use my handcarved panda stamps for the images. What I need are some appropriate love quotes - less romance and more agape; something with a humanitarian angle, preferably a quote that can also be applicable for people who are into animal rights and animal welfare. I hope that makes sense. I want for the cards to be Valentiney in appearance (I'll be stamping the images in lilac and pink), but philosophical in tone and message.

    I don't even know where to begin to find such a quote, so I'm hoping that some of you here may have some favorites to post. I usually have a running list of good quotes, but I am drawing a complete blank right now.

    Any ideas? Anyone?

    These may or may not be what you're looking for, but....

    Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality.
    —Victor Frankel

    Love can sweep you off your feet and carry you along in a way you've never known before. But the ride always ends, and you end up feeling lonely and bitter. Wait. It's not love I'm describing. I'm thinking of a monorail.
    —Jack Handey

    Love does not consist of gazing at one another, but in looking outward in the same direction.
    —Antoine de Saint Exupery

    Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
    —Alexander Smith

    In those whom I like, I can find no common denominator; in those whom I love I can: they all make me laugh.
    —W. H. Auden (<3 <3 <3)


    Good luck!!

    Love is the only rational act. ~ Stephen Levine

    The only abnormality is the incapacity to love. ~ Anais Nin

    We are shaped and fashioned by what we love. ~ Goethe

    What is done out of love always takes place beyond good and evil. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

    With love and patience, nothing is impossible. ~ Daisaku Ikeda

    * "If you love something let it go free. If it doesn't come back, you never had it. If it comes back, love it forever." ~ Doug Horton

    Just a few I found from a quick look at http://wikiquote.org/

    Thanks to both of you!

    I've put the cards aside for the moment to work on another project. I won't get to them again until Sunday at the earliest, so everyone please feel free to keep posting any quotes that you have. I'm thinking now that I could put a different quote on each card!
