As you may or may not know, Valentine's day is getting close. So today, my task for you is:

Write a heart-shaped quine


  • Code should look like an identifyable heart shape, i.e. Has two round parts on top and a pointy bottom. It does NOT have to be filled in, but this is not disallowed.
  • Standard Quine rules apply (no opening/reading files, etc)
  • This is a , so try to be as creative as possible in your solutions!

The closing date will be the day after valentine's day (15th of February), 12:00 UTC

    \$\begingroup\$ A popularity contest must always include an objective validity criterion. The validity criterion identifyable heart shape. It doesn't have to be perfect, but make sure it resembles a heart is clearly not objective \$\endgroup\$ – Luis Mendo Feb 7 '19 at 12:32

    \$\begingroup\$ @Martmists I do not think round and pointy are really objective with regards to text ... \$\endgroup\$ – Jonathan Frech Feb 7 '19 at 12:57

    \$\begingroup\$ popularity-contests are (ironically) not very popular these days, simply because they're very hard to define in a way that is objective while also allowing for variation in answers. \$\endgroup\$ – Jo King Feb 7 '19 at 13:22
