Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.
We have the greatest pre-nuptial agreement in the world. It's called love.
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.
After all there is something about a wedding-gown prettier than in any other gown in the world.
~Douglas William Jerrold
[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
Trip over love, you can get up. Fall in love and you fall forever.
My heart to you is given:
Oh, do give yours to me;
We'll lock them up together,
And throw away the key.
My whole heart for my whole life.
~French saying used on poesy rings
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
True love stories never have endings.
There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.
A hundred hearts would be too fewTo carry all my love for you.
Many are the starrs I see, but in my eye no starr like thee.
~English saying used on poesy rings
Love puts the fun in together, the sad in apart, and the joy in a heart.
A man in love is incomplete until he is married. Then he's finished.
~Zsa Zsa Gabor
Spouse: someone who'll stand by you through all the trouble you wouldn't have had if you'd stayed single.
Are we not like two volumes of one book?
If two stand shoulder to shoulder against the gods,Happy together, the gods themselves are helplessAgainst them while they stand so.
I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.
Marriage, n: The state or condition of a community consisting of a master, a mistress, and two slaves, making in all, two.
The difficulty with marriage is that we fall in love with a
personality, but must live with a character.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
The Oriole weds his mottled mate,
The Lily weds the bee;
Heaven's marriage ring is round the earth,
Let me bind thee?
The highest happiness on earth is marriage.
~William Lyon Phelps
Love - a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker.
Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
Marriage: that I call the will of two to create the one who is more than those who created it.
Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.
Tell me how many beads there are
In a silver chain
Of evening rain,
Unravelled from the tumbling main,
And threading the eye of a yellow star: -
So many times do I love again.
~Thomas Lovell Beddoes
When love is not madness, it is not love.
~Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Ah me! love can not be cured by herbs.
I love thee - I love thee,
'Tis all that I can say
It is my vision in the night,
My dreaming in the day.
For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
Who, being loved, is poor?
Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.
~Zora Neale Hurston
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)"
Come, let's be a comfortable couple and take care of each other! How glad we shall be, that we have somebody we are fond of always, to talk to and sit with.
Let all thy joys be as the month of May,
And all thy days be as a marriage day.
Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.
All things do go a-courting,
In earth, or sea, or air,
God hath made nothing single
But thee in His world so fair.
When the one man loves the one woman and the one woman loves the one man, the very angels desert heaven and come and sit in that house and sing for joy.
~The Brahma Sutras
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.
If our two loves be one, or thou and I
Love so alike, that none doe slacken, none can die.
Two souls, one heart.
~French saying used on poesy rings
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, both are infinite.
There is no such cozy combination as man and wife.
Think not because you are now wed
That all your courtship's at an end.
~Antonio Hurtado de Mendoza
One of the best things about marriage is that it gets young people to bed at a decent hour.
[Marriage] ...the deep, deep peace of the double-bed after the hurly-burly of the chaise-longue.
~Mrs Patrick Campbell
A happy marriage is a long conversation that always seems too short.
Love me and the world is mine.
Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.
~Phyllis Diller, Phyllis Diller's Housekeeping Hints, 1966
