Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day to everyone!

Our Kids English class will be making cards with Sally today and lots of students will be enjoying love songs throughout the day.

Some First Certificate and Advanced level students have been looking at the following famous love quotes and discussing their meanings...

Love is a trap.  When it appears, we see only its light, not its shadows.


Paulo Coelho


Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King


Love is a gross exaggeration of the difference  between one person and everybody else. 


George Bernard Shaw

 Black Heart 


Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,

And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.


William Shakespeare



To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.

Bertrand Russell



Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.  Without them humanity cannot survive.

Dalai Lama



The more I think it over, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.


Vincent Van Gough
