Feb 7 2010
Instructions
thumbnail valentines quiz

What sort of note do you send your sweetheart when he's the head of state—or if she's the First Lady? A cardboard Valentine might not be enough. Read each of the selections below, and match them with the presidents (in the pull-down menu) who received or sent them.


  1. You have the greatest soul, the noblest nature, the sweetest, most loving heart I have ever known, and my love, my reverence, my admiration for you, you have increased in one evening as I should have thought only a lifetime of intimate, loving association could have increased them. …my pride and joy and gratitude that you should love me with such a perfect love are beyond all expression, except in some great poem which I cannot write.
    A.

    Woodrow Wilson

    B.

    Ronald Reagan

    C.

    John Adams

    D.

    Theodore Roosevelt


  2. Should I draw you the picture of my heart it would be what I hope you would still love though it contained nothing new. The early possession you obtained there, and the absolute power you have obtained over it, leaves not the smallest space unoccupied.

    I look back to the early days of our acquaintance and friendship as to the days of love and innocence, and, with an indescribable pleasure, I have seen near a score of years roll over our heads with an affection heightened and improved by time. . .
    A.

    Woodrow Wilson

    B.

    Ronald Reagan

    C.

    John Adams

    D.

    Theodore Roosevelt


  3. As Pres. of the U.S., it is my honor & privilege to cite you for service above & beyond the call of duty in that you have made one man (me) the most happy man in the world for 29 years. …

    She has done this in spite of the fact that he still can't find the words to tell her how lost he would be without her. He sits in the Oval Office from which he can see (if he scrooches down) her window and feels warm all over just knowing she is there.
    A.

    Woodrow Wilson

    B.

    Ronald Reagan

    C.

    John Adams

    D.

    Theodore Roosevelt


  4. In the evening I was all the time with my darling Little Sunshine; she is so marvelously sweet, and pure and loveable and pretty that I seem to lover her more and more every time I see her, though I love her so much now that I really can not lover her more. I do not think ever a man loved a woman more than I lover her; for a year and a quarter now I have never (even when hunting) gone to sleep or waked up without thinking of her; and I doubt if an hour has passed that I have not thought of her.
    A.

    Woodrow Wilson

    B.

    Ronald Reagan

    C.

    John Adams

    D.

    Theodore Roosevelt
