Why do we appoint a day for celebrating love? Lovers don't need a date to express love. They should do it on every occasion. But unfortunately, love is a time-consuming activity. Life and its innumerable worries take us far away from love. Hence it becomes necessary for people to be reminded about love. On Valentine Day, let work take a backseat. It is time to love. Here are Valentine Day quotes to encourage you to rediscover love.
