Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
H. L. Mencken
Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him.
Chains do not hold a marriage together.It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.
We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.
More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
The middle years of marriage are the most crucial. In the early years, spouses want each other and in late years, they need each other.
R. H. Delaney
Love builds bridges where there are none.
Love that is true never grows old.
It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.
