Funny Valentine’s Day Quotes

I am not so curmudgeonly as to suggest that Valentine’s Day is a waste of time — although I do tend to think that most occasions you are instructed to enjoy by the greetings card industry tend not to live up to the occasion, simply by dint of the hype with which they come burdened. For those in a relationship who possess sufficient imagination and sensitivity to come up with the “right” gesture (a box of chocolates and a bunch of roses doesn’t really cut the ice any more), it can be a touching occasion, even if it is devalued by being compulsory. But in truth, it’s often a disappointment — and that’s for those who actually have, or receive, a Valentine. – Tim Lott

I will give you my heart
until the end of time
you’re all I need, my love, my Valentine. – Martine McBride

Sherwood like to be your Valentine! – Chelsey Grasso

Let’s be real, Valentine’s Day is when people brag about all the things they received that day and when partners get a special shout-out on social media for being so sweet. It’s all about material things and shiny gifts, not about the actual relationship. – Nicole Yi

Love is an exploding cigar we willingly smoke. – Lynda Barry

Love is costly. To forgive in love costs us our sense of justice. To serve in love costs us time. To share in love costs us money. Every act of love costs us in some way, just as it cost God to love us. But we are to live a life of love just as Christ loves us and gave Himself for us at great cost to Himself. – Jerry Bridges

Love is just a chocolate substitute. – Melanie Clark Pullen

Love is making space in your life for someone else. – Anonymous

My wife and I won’t be celebrating Valentine’s Day this year. Valentine’s Day is about romance and 15 years together has tested that particular fantasy — like many others — to the limit. Real life has the upper hand. – Tim Lott

Oft have I heard both youths and virgins say,
Birds choose their mates and couple too this day:
But by their flight I never can divine
When I shall couple with my valentine. – Robert Herrick

Oh God. valentine’s Day tomorrow. Why? Why? Why is (the) entire world geared to make people not involved in romance feel stupid when everyone knows romance does not work anyway. Look at (the) royal family. Look at Mum and Dad. – Helen Fielding

On Valentine’s Day, I wired flowers for my mother-in-law, but she found the fuse. – Milton Berle

And what about his wife Melania? Will they spend the night together or will she remain trapped like Rapunzel at their apartment in New York? Melania has a new line of greeting cards. They carry them at CVS: “Happy Valentine’s Day” (open it) “Save Me.” – Jimmy Kimmel

Stay, little Valentine, stay,
Each day is Valentine’s day. – Lorenz hart

Sure, of all days that ever were dated,
Valentine’s Day is the fullest of news;–
Then ev’ry lass expects to be mated
And Cupid goes round collecting his dues! – Thomas Hood

The only thing that can break a piece of Valentine candy is another piece of Valentine candy. – Milton Berle

There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single, flashing, throbbing moment. – Sarah Dessen

There’s a Goodwill store in Sarasota, Florida where they’re asking people who have been through a breakup recently to donate their ex’s old belongings for Valentine’s Day. It’s a great idea. They should rename themselves Good Riddance instead of Goodwill. – Jimmy Kimmel

This February 14th I declare V-Day; no, not V for Valentine … V for Victory over a longstanding holiday that has twisted the hearts and minds of all who have been unfortunate enough to have been brainwashed by its evil pull since first placing store bought cards into tiny shoeboxes in elementary school. V for Victory over greedy swine toying with the emotional well being of the public at large to increase profit margins. But most importantly, V for Victory over longstanding feelings of inadequacy and unhappiness based on an arbitrary date on a calendar. – Alexander Kern

To me, modern day Valentine’s Day is about as romantic as Roman men picking names from a bucket. It’s a day for people who need an excuse to feel in love. People who need a day to put aside all their issues and go out for dinner and hold hands and post a photo on Instagram to show everyone how happy they are. – Mary Gross

Valentine’s Day can bring scrutiny on and strain your relationship. Rather than a happy occasion, it can feel like a Law and Order interrogation. Where is this relationship going? Do you love me? Why do we argue so much? Why do my parents call you a bum? When are you going to get a better job? When are we going to get married? When will we live in the same city? Is a yak really a good pet? Who is that other person that’s sleeping in the bed with us? – Bruce Y. Lee

Valentine’s Day can prompt your favorite stalkers to reappear and step up their games, calling, texting or messaging you or sending lovely gifts that you then have to explain to your current significant other or your co-workers or your front desk person or the entire basketball stadium. – Bruce Y. Lee

Valentine’s Day is an awkward, sensitive holiday whether or not you have a significant other and, perhaps especially, if you are single. To be “without love” on a day designed to celebrate it as loudly and publicly as possible can make even the most secure single person question their life. – Alicia Eler

Valentine’s Day is celebrated a little differently here in L.A. Nobody eats chocolate because of the calories, so people give each other tofu-shaped boxes filled with bean curd. Then they fantasize about what their Pilates instructor would be like if he was straight. – Craig Ferguson

Valentine’s Day is certainly a happy occasion for many. An opportunity to spend a day with that special someone or, for some, someones. A time to generate more memories, show your love or feel loved. But for others, it’s anything but … even if you are in a relationship. For a number of people, the commercially designated day of love can actually cause stress, anxiety, unhappiness and even depression. – Bruce Y. Lee

Valentine’s Day is just a week away. Hold on until the big day, then stuff him with sugar. Maybe an overdose of high-glycemic goodies can help him see the light. – Darcy Lundeen

Valentine’s Day is like society collectively deciding to be politically incorrect toward single people. – Bruce Y. Lee

Valentine’s Day is the Christmas of Coupledom. – Tonilyn Hornung

Valentine’s Day is the one day when partners try to make up for their lack of romance on other days by going big when everyone’s watching. – Nicole Yi

Valentine’s Day is the worst. It is the most self-sabotaging, cut-your-nose-off-to-spite-your-face holiday we human beings have been stupid enough to come up with. This unmitigated annual disaster is devoted to celebrating, and so putting a microscope to, societal mores about what it means to be in romantic love. (And so also the even-more-fun part, hahaha — the lonely inverse!) – Dave Bry

Valentine’s Day is weird. A nude flying baby that shoots arrows isn’t a holiday. It’s a horror movie. – Jimmy Kimmel

Valentine’s Day money-saving tips: Break up on February 13th, get back together on the 15th. In place of bubble bath, use lavender-scented dish-washing liquid. Forget rose petals. Sprinkle the bed with sliced beets! – David Letterman

Valentine’s Day was created by the greeting card industry to get pussy. – Anthony Jeselnik

Valentine’s Day: the day women all around the world wait eagerly to discover the new and wonderful ways their husbands and boyfriends will disappoint them. – Jimmy Kimmel

We’re now less than a week away from V-Day. Valentine’s Day is a test. It’s a test of your commitment, your preparedness, a test of whether you love someone enough to waste $100 on flowers that on any other day of the year would cost you $30. – Jimmy Kimmel

What I’d like to know is how many fights/breakups/divorces occur because of Valentine’s Day compared to other days of the year? The men sit at home and wait in fear in case they’ve done the wrong thing. The women who didn’t receive flowers at work rush home snarling. There’s so much pressure on relationships on Valentine’s Day its practically unbearable. People all over the world are pushed into proposing when they’re not quite ready. I know this for a fact because I see them a few months down the line (they’re the guys who hit the office mid-March with the scared, wild-horse-like eyes that flick all over the room searching for exit points). – Allison Rushby

What’s Valentine’s Day about except the desperate search to find someone to spend Valentine’s Day with? It just shows that love has become a marketing campaign, like everything else. You buy into it and lose everything. – David Levithan

When I hear people complain about being single on Valentine’s Day, I always want to tell them that they’re not missing out on anything and that it’s just like Feb. 13 and 15. Because they’re not, and it is. If it really is a big deal to you, make the day about celebrating you instead of allowing yourself to feel bad. – Nicole Yi

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, guys are smart. They know what’s going on and that’s why, for them, it’s a day of fear. Guys have somehow evolved to the point where they are now able to cut through the emotional bullshit of the day to the truth–that Valentine’s Day is all about doing the “right thing” so no one yells at you. To keep out of trouble they buy the over-priced flowers, the heart-shaped goodies and the weekends away. Everyone’s happy. And the day over, they can breathe a sigh of relief. – Allison Rushby

When you’re in elementary school, Valentine’s Day is an obligatory dropping of cheap paper cards into construction-paper boxes in front of everybody’s desk. In high school, perhaps an elaborate purchase of helium balloons that you have to carry around awkwardly from math class to first lunch. By the time you reach adulthood, the magic is kinda gone. If you’re dating, you get to spend twice as much for the same meal at Intermezzo as you spent there last Saturday, and if you’re single, don’t even try to get a table; they’re booked. – Jason Johnson

While fewer are planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, millions of shoppers will still make room in their budgets to spoil their loved ones. – Pam Goodfellow

Without Valentine’s Day, February would be… well, January. – Jim Gaffigan

Women are cursed, and men are the proof. – Roseanne Barr

You are the ham to my sandwich, cheese to my macaroni, jelly to my peanut butter, milk to my cookies, cherry to my sundae, syrup to my pancakes, cinnamon to my sugar, hamburger to my fries, sugar to my tea. – Anonymous

    All calendars with Love’s whose date alway
    Thy bright eyes govern better than the Sun,—
    For with thy favour was my life begun,
    And still I reckon on from smiles to smiles,
    And not by summers, for I thrive on none
    But those thy cheerful countenance compiles;
    Oh! if it be to choose and call thee mine,
    Love, thou art every day my Valentine!

    Have only lighted me the way to death.
    Perchance thou wilt extinguish them in vapours,
    When I am gone, and green grass covereth
    Thy lover, lost; but it will be in vain—
    It will not bring the vital spark again.

  • Apollo has peeped through the shutter,
    And awaken’d the witty and fair;
    The boarding-school belle’s in a flutter,
    The twopenny post’s in despair;
    The breath of the morning is flinging
    A magic on blossom and spray,
    And cockneys and sparrows are singing
    In chorus on Valentine’s day.
