Valentine’s Day is a day which at the very least stands as a gentle reminder to express the love and affection which you carry around in your heart all year round. Though common practice is to express such love with heart shaped items, roses and little love notes, we suggest elevating your Valentine’s Day game this year.
Take a risk, step away from the stale greeting card love notes, and truly speak from your higher mind and your highest heart. Draw some inspiration from some famous higher-minded individuals. Whether their minds and hearts were elevated by the power of cannabinoids, or elevated by some other force, they were on that level (you know the one).
5 of our most beloved higher-minded quotes about LOVE
“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
― Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
― Maya Angelou
“If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain.”
― Emily Dickinson
“What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.”
― Vincent van Gogh
“You say you love rain, but you use an umbrella to walk under it. You say you love sun, but you seek shelter when it is shining. You say you love wind, but when it comes you close your windows. So that’s why I’m scared when you say you love me.”
― Bob Marley
