Love is what makes two people sit in the middle of a bench when there is plenty of room at both ends.
The secret to having a good marriage is to understand that marriage must be total, it must be permanent, and it must be equal.
Marriage, ultimately, is the practice of becoming passionate friends.
Homer, 9th century B.C.
There is nothing more admirable than two people who see eye-to-eye keeping house as man and wife, confounding their enemies, and delighting their friends.
Maggie Gallagher, The Case for Marriage
Getting married is the boldest and most idealistic thing that most of us will ever do.
What else is love but understanding and rejoicing in the fact that another person lives, acts, and experiences otherwise than we do?
The most powerful symptom of love is a tenderness which becomes at times almost insupportable.
You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.
When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
For those passionately in love, the whole world seems to smile.
And think not, you can direct the course of love; for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
