Quotations: Valentine's Sentiments

Vintage Sentiments

For the nostalgic or sentimental, try a vintage sentiment from our collection of messages borrowed from actual 19th and early 20th century valentines.

I like your lips, I like your style
But most of all I like your smile.
Let soft love beaming from thine eyes
Speak rapture to my heart.
Plenty of love,
Tons of kisses,
Hope some day
To be your Mrs.
I ever will in you remain,
So let your heart return again.
May every blessing be thy lot,
I only ask "Forget Me Not."
Thy sparkling eyes of blackest jet
Have lured me into Cupid's net.
Your eyes are blue,
Your heart is true,
Your lips divine
When they met mine.
More closely bound than friend or brother,
One cannot live without the other.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Carnations are sweet
And so are you.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
In my life
There's a place for you.
Accept, Dear Girl, this loving heart of mine,
And be my fashionable valentine.
My love is like a cabbage
Divided into two,
The leaves I give to others
But the heart I give to you.
I bet you a cuddle, I bet you a kiss
I bet you'll never guess who sent you this.
Cupid by the comet's blaze,
Set Lovers' hearts on fire.
When days are dark and friends are few,
Remember me as I do you.
Kisses spread disease, it's stated.
Kiss me quick! I'm vaccinated.
My darling girl
My chosen one,
I dream of you
And you alone.
If this sender you can name
All these kisses you can claim.
Valentine, O Valentine,
I'll be your love and you'll be mine.
