It's Romance Time Again ....

Well, February is the month of romance, with Valentine's Day just around the corner, so here is a little post dedicated to love!

"Love is like quick silver in the hand.  Leave the fingers open and it stays.  Clutch it and it darts away."  by Dorothy Parker.

"Love doesn't make the world go round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile."  by Elizabeth Browning.

"Love is the irresistable desire to be irresistably desired".  by Mark Twain.

"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."  by Mother Teresa.

I have been thinking of romantic songs, and here are a few that came to mind.  I am sure that you know of lots more.

"Everything I Do" by Bryan Adams.

"Can't Help Falling In Love" by Elvis Presley.

"I Swear" by All For One.

"Have I Told You Lately" by Rod Stewart.

"Unchained Melody" by The Righteous Brothers.

"I Just Called To Say I Love You" by Stevie Wonder.

"Lady In Red" by Chris de Burgh.

"Up Where We Belong" by Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes.

"Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler.

"When A Man Loves A Woman" by Percy Sledge.

"My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion.

"Endless Love" by Lionel Richie & Diana Ross.

"Amazed" by Lonestar.

"Every Breath You Take" by The Police.

"Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton.

"Save The Last Dance For Me" by The Drifters.

You can give without loving, but you cannot
love without giving.

Sending hugs and smooches your way.

I loved your lovely post on love! Those songs are all terrific, and the quote by Mother Teresa is so very true. If I could give anyone a gift, it would be the ability to know just how much we are all truly loved.

Your posts are always so, so. . .perfect. So well researched and written, and not a one is lacking your great capacity to share your loving heart.

I am indeed a lucky woman to have you to call my friend.

And Wallene and I voted "Love doesn't make the world go round, it's what make the ride worthwhile." is the WINNER. And for what it's worth "Hold me, Thrill me, Kiss me" is mine and Pooldad's song. ::SWOON::

Happy Valentines Day to you lovely.

Hallo, dear Thisisme! I thoroughly enjoyed the first in your series of romantic posts leading up to Valentine's Day. As I have told you in previous years, romantic love is wonderful but, in my opinion, "what the world needs now" (another great song) is higher love - unconditional love. For that reason I was most appreciative of the quote by Mother Teresa.

I also enjoyed your list of love songs. "Unchained Melody" and "When a Man Loves a Woman" were both major Dell hits and both songs were used in the soundtracks of hit movies. "Have I Told You Lately," "I Just Called," "Lady in Red" and "Every Breath" were all popular on the MTV style television station where I worked in the 80s. "Up Where We Belong" was used as an inspirational theme song in the 1980s NLP seminar program in which I served as a trainer.

Thank you for another very entertaining and uplifting post, dear friend Thisisme!

Hugs and smooches to you!!!

Love your mixture of hearts, quotes (how apt they all are), songs (they are all starting to go around in my mind) and pictures.
I'm writing this at 6am as I cannot sleep.(while the love of my life is snoring away...literally...upstairs...who said that cupid didn't have a sense of humour!)
Enjoy your Valentine's!!

It is nice to think about love. The song list brought a smile. There is nothing like a great love song. I admire Mother Teresa so much. She is a great example of pure love.
