A Little Romance... Love Quotes

There is nothing like a well written, hand-written love letter  - 

But sometimes I can really use some help.
Oprah has a list of some really nice lovey dovey quotes... feel free to use them to embellish your Valentine cards.  Although I sometimes like to fancy myself a wordsmith, the sad truth is I lack the talent, and these lines are brimming with well-crafted romanticism at its written best.  You can end off your personalized note with one well-written quote from another... lovely.
