Happy Valentine’s Day

He who wishes to save himself from Love’s surprise attacks must keep his eyes prisoners. If they escape, they will scream in the ears of his heart while it sleeps — so loudly that they will awaken it — shouting that they have just seen some peerless pleasure.

–The world’s oldest known Valentine, sent in 1415 by the then-imprisoned Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife.

  1. I just learned that was the first Valentine ever! Hope you had a nice day. And I also hope that you aren't having some sort of Dirrty South/East Coast showdown at CNN because it's just not safe to emulate a hip-hop war. The New York staff better stop disrespecting.
