Love one another and you will be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that.
I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends.
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for,
He said one that would make me his wife.
[W]hen you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
~Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupery
True love stories never have endings.
Spouse: someone who'll stand by you through all the trouble you wouldn't have had if you'd stayed single.
Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
Ah me! love can not be cured by herbs.
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
~Henry Van Dyke
Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.
The Oriole weds his mottled mate,
The Lily weds the bee;
Heaven's marriage ring is round the earth,
Let me bind thee?
My whole heart for my whole life.
~French saying used on poesy rings
The highest happiness on earth is marriage.
~William Lyon Phelps
A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay -
Love isn’t love
'Til you give it away.
~Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, "You Are Sixteen (Reprise)"
We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
Two souls, one heart.
~French saying used on poesy rings
Love is a game that two can play and both win.
Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.
Without love, what are we worth? Eighty-nine cents! Eighty-nine cents worth of chemicals walking around lonely.
He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know where he ended and she began.
The arms of love encompass you with your present, your past, your future, the arms of love gather you together.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Southern Mail, 1929, translated from French by Curtis Cate
Love would never be a promise of a rose garden unless it is showered with light of faith, water of sincerity and air of passion.
Nobody has ever measured, even poets, how much a heart can hold.
All things do go a-courting,
In earth, or sea, or air,
God hath made nothing single
But thee in His world so fair.
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow.
My heart to you is given:
Oh, do give yours to me;
We'll lock them up together,
And throw away the key.
It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.
Marriage is an alliance entered into by a man who can't sleep with the window shut, and a woman who can't sleep with the window open.
~George Bernard Shaw
Newlyweds become oldyweds, and oldyweds are the reasons that families work.
Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.
For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate.
~Barnett R. Brickner
Never get married in the morning, because you never know who you'll meet that night.
The sum which two married people owe to one another defies calculation. It is an infinite debt, which can only be discharged through eternity.
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Love seems the swiftest but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.
Three rings of marriage are the engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffering.
A fellow ought to save a few of the long evenings he spends with his girl till after they're married.
A man without a wife is like a vase without flowers.
A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.
