Valentine's Day Quotes About Roses, Because They're Too Classic To Be Cliche

Roses are red, violets are blue, I've rounded up 14 Valentine's Day quotes about roses, how lucky are you? That's right, with Valentine's Day right around the corner, it's time to start busting out the rhymes... and the roses. Nothing says "I love you" quite like a bouquet of red roses does, and as cliché as the gesture may be, it can still be full of sentiment.

Chocolates, candies, stuffed animals, and the list goes on and on when it comes to Valentine's Day gifts. However, while chocolates and candies will quickly get eaten and stuffed animals eventually thrown away, your special someone will remember a bouquet of roses long past the week they spend in a vase. Obviously, nothing physical lasts forever, but the memory sure does. I know that I can't tell you every time I've eaten a bar of chocolate, but I can tell you how many times I've put a vase full of roses on my kitchen table, coffee table, or desk. Like I said, the memory sticks with you.

Roses represent a multitude of things, and romance is one of the key representations. If you need any further delight while your sniffing your Valentine's Day roses or if you need any further inspiration when deciding what to get your Valentine this February 14th, then make sure you read through each and every one of these 14 quotes.
