What's your Favourite Funny Valentine Quote

Valentine Day!
What on earth could I write about Valentine’s Day that hadn’t been written, better, by someone else already?
I clicked on yet another valentine site for inspiration, and another, and another… and then a chance remark by DH and I had my subject!
And believe me there are millions out there :-) so off I went again to select a few that ‘tickled my fancy’.

"Valentine’s Day is when a lot of married men are reminded what a poor shot Cupid really is.” ~Unknown

"One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry." ~Oscar Wilde

"If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?" ~Unknown

No matter how love sick a woman is, she shouldn't take the first pill that comes along." ~Joyce Brothers

"If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?" ~Lily Tomlin

"Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife." ~Groucho Marx

Without love, what are we worth? Eighty-nine cents! Eighty-nine cents worth of chemicals walking around lonely.
Hawkeye, M.A.S.H.

True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights. If you hear bells, get your ears checked.
Erich Segal

Falling in love is so hard on the knees.

Love is a grave mental disease.

Mine is:- "If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?" ~Unknown

What’s yours?
I will give a PDF copy of Meditative Serenity to the answer that makes me laugh the most.

Ah, I love it! My favorite is:
"No matter how love sick a woman is, she shouldn't take the first pill that comes along." ~Joyce Brothers

Right she is. There ARE princes out there. Unfortunately, you may have to wade through a lot of frogs to find them!

Sherry Gloag said...

So right Virginia, thanks for coming by.

Hi Maeve, thanks for coming by. Yeah, Plato knew what he was talking about, didn't he? :-) I like that one too.

Geeeze doxymom, the mind boggles. I hope the TV was worth it! LOL

Sherry Gloag said...

Hi Linda, I like that one too. It's just that there are a heck of a lot of frogs out there. I got lucky and found my prince quite quickly :-)

Hilarious, Sherry! Thanks for sharing!

Here are a couple that made me laugh--

Women marry men hoping they will change.
Men marry women hoping they will not.
So each is inevitably disappointed.
-- Albert Einstein

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.
-- Albert Einstein

Men make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.
-- Anonymous

No man is truly married until he understands every word his wife is NOT saying.

Very funny, Sherry!
Love the one from Erich Segal.

Sherry Gloag said...

Maria, think of all the disappointed women, and men, if the lingerie industry didn't cash in on this day? LOL
