The origin of this story isn't very romantic -- at least not in the traditional sense. St. Valentine was a Roman Priest at a time when there was an emperor named Claudius.
Claudius persecuted the church and also had an edict that prohibited the marriage of young people. He thought unmarried soldiers fought better than married soldiers, because married soldiers might be afraid of what would happen to their wives or families if they died.

"Failure is an education, not a judgement." - Donald Miller
These words spoke loudly to me when they came across my Facebook news feed. Later on I went to dinner with a friend who was talking about facing something she was afraid of and nonchalantly said, "If it isn't perfect, the world isn't going to stop spinning." Or something to that effect.
