How do I love thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being an Ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old grief's, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Love is patient, Love is kind,
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud, it is not rude,
It is not self-seeking,
It is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil,
but rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.
Lover never fails
(Corinthians 13:4-8)

This weeks featured marriage and wedding quotations:

 

All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest - never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.
Ann Landers


A simple enough pleasure, surely, to have breakfast alone with one's husband, but how seldom married people in the midst of life achieve it.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh

 

You can never be happily married to another until you get a divorce from yourself. Successful marriage demands a certain death to self.

Jerry McCant

 

wedding day quotations and poems


If you believe, then you hang on. If you believe, it means you've got imagination, you don't need stuff thrown out for you in a blueprint, you don't face facts -- what can stop you If I don't make it today, I'll come in tomorrow.
Ruth Gordon
 

The conception of two people living together for twenty-five years without having a cross word suggests a lack of spirit only to be admired in sheep.
Alan Patrick Herbert


A successful marriage is an edifice that must be rebuilt every day.
Andre Maurois

 

There's only one way to have a happy marriage and as soon as I learn what it is I'll get married again.
Clint Eastwood


A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
Dave Meurer, "Daze of Our Wives"

 

I wonder, among all the tangles of this mortal coil, which one contains tighter knots to undo, and consequently suggests more tugging, and pain, and diversified elements of misery, than the marriage tie.
Edith Wharton


I used to believe that marriage would diminish me, reduce my options. That you had to be someone less to live with someone else when, of course, you have to be someone more.
Candice Bergen


What is right for one couple is wrong for another. I would say that there are many more important factors to a happy marriage.
Elizabeth Aston, The Second Mrs. Darcy


Man's best possession is a sympathetic wife.
Euripides

 

wedding day quotations and poems


One man's folly is another man's wife.
Helen Rowland


A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
Mignon McLaughlin


Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might be found more suitable mates. But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to.
J. R. R. Tolkien, Letter to Michael Tolkien, March 1941


I pay very little regard...to what any young person says on the subject of marriage. If they profess a disinclination for it, I only set it down that they have not yet seen the right person.
Jane Austen, Mansfield Park


Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without.

Dr. James C. Dobson

A wedding is just like a funeral except that you get to smell your own flowers.

Grace Hansen
 

My marriage had its ups and downs like anyone's, but when it came down to it, I knew it was solid. I miss that sort of security, and that sort of connection with someone.
John Scalzi, Old Man's War, 2005


Intimacy is what makes a marriage, not a ceremony, not a piece of paper from the state.
Kathleen Norris


If there was strife and contention in the home, very little else in life could compensate for it.
Lawana Blackwell, The Courtship of the Vicar's Daughter, 1998


Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution yet.
Mae West

 

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
Martin Luther King

No vision and you perish No Ideal, and you're lost Your heart must ever cherish Some faith at any cost. Some hope, some dream to cling to, Some rainbow in the sky, Some melody to sing to, Some service that is high.
Harriet Du Autermont

 

wedding day quotations and poems


When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her. Good Quote by Sacha Guitry, Elles et toi, 1948

In the long run wives are to be paid in a peculiar coin - consideration for their feelings. As it usually turns out this is an enormous, unthinkable inflation few men will remit, or if they will, only with a sense of being overcharged. Elizabeth Hardwick, Seduction and Betrayal, 1974

We were happily married for eight months. Unfortunately, we were married for four and a half years. Famous Nick Faldo

 

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.
Rita Rudner


In Hollywood a marriage is a success if it outlasts milk.
Rita Rudner


Never say that marriage has more of joy than pain.
Euripides


Always get married early in the morning. That way, if it doesn't work out, you haven't wasted a whole day.
Mickey Rooney

 

That is what marriage really means: helping one another to reach the full status of being persons, responsible and autonomous beings who do not run away from life.
Paul Tournier


A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.
Pearl Buck

 

Marriage is made in heaven but the maintenance department is in the kitchen, the laundry room and the bedroom.

Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

 

When you are old, wrinkled and grey,
And I am doddery and forgetful,
And we sit together on the promenade,
Huddled close against the cold sea breeze,
Wasting time,
Watching the world go by.
That is then that I will love you most.
Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

 

Two people,
Standing at love’s altar,
Exchanging rings,
Becoming one.
Entrusting love for love,
For all eternity.

Married.

Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

 

Do not be afraid of love. Do not be frightened to give your love or to receive the love of others. For love is the sole purpose of our lives, the reason for each and every one of us being here on earth. Only through love can an individual achieve spiritual growth. Only through love can mankind find peace and equality.
Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

 

Marriage is like a good wine. During the aging process it slowly matures and mellows. Through time it achieves a bouquet of happiness and contentment. It is blissful on the palate and has a warm and adoring aftertaste, making it a fine accompaniment to a wonderful life.

Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

 

Till the seas turn to tears of sorrow,
Till the moon wearies of its daily voyage,
Till the last star abandons a forlorn sky,
Till then shall I love thee,
Till then shall I live in joy.
Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

 

Love is . . . getting up early to surprise your darling with breakfast in bed.

Stuart and Linda Macfarlane


It is wise for all men to marry. Those who find a good wife are blessed with happiness. Those who don’t are blessed with a low golfing handicap.
Stuart and Linda Macfarlane


A loving marriage is a glimpse of heaven on earth.
Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

 

Through marriage two souls come together as one, strengthening each other in times of sorrow - rejoicing in each other in times of happiness.
Stuart and Linda Macfarlane

 

The first time I saw you,
The first words you spoke,
The first time we held hands,
The first time we kissed,
Our wedding day.
These are my memories, my treasures.
They are locked, safe in my heart,
And whenever I feel lonely or sad,
In my mind I live them once more,
Moment by moment,
Precisely as they happened.
And feel the happiness all over again
Stuart and Linda Macfarlane


My toughest fight was with my first wife.
Muhammad Ali


We were happily married for eight months. Unfortunately, we were married for four and a half years.
Nick Faldo


If you would marry suitably, marry your equal.
Ovid


You get married at twenty, you're going to be shocked who you're living with at thirty.
Peter Blake, House M.D., Fools For Love, 2006


This weeks featured marriage and wedding poems:

 

Wedding Prayer by Stuart Macfarlane
As we come together through marriage,
May we stay together through love,
And in the twilight of our years,
May our love sustain us,
Companionship nourish us,
And bless us with happiness,
And when heaven claims our souls,
May our love continue for all eternity.
 

A Slice of Wedding Cake by Robert Graves
Why have such scores of lovely, gifted girls
Married impossible men?
Simple self-sacrifice may be ruled out,
And missionary endeavour, nine times out of ten.

Repeat 'impossible men': not merely rustic,
Foul-tempered or depraved
(Dramatic foils chosen to show the world
How well women behave, and always have behaved).

Impossible men: idle, illiterate,
Self-pitying, dirty, sly,
For whose appearance even in City parks
Excuses must be made to casual passers-by.

Has God's supply of tolerable husbands
Fallen, in fact, so low?
Or do I always over-value woman
At the expense of man?
Do I?
It might be so.

 

wedding day quotations and poems

 

Why Should A Foolish Marriage Vow by John Dryden
Why should a foolish marriage vow,
Which long ago was made,
Oblige us to each other now
When passion is decay'd?
We lov'd, and we lov'd, as long as we could,
Till our love was lov'd out in us both:
But our marriage is dead, when the pleasure is fled:
'Twas pleasure first made it an oath.

If I have pleasures for a friend,
And farther love in store,
What wrong has he whose joys did end,
And who could give no more?
'Tis a madness that he should be jealous of me,
Or that I should bar him of another:
For all we can gain is to give our selves pain,
When neither can hinder the other.
 

Till by Stuart Macfarlane
Till the seas turn to tears of sorrow,
Till the moon wearies of its daily voyage,
Till the last star abandons a forlorn sky,
Till then shall I love thee,
Till then shall I live in joy.

Memories by Stuart Macfarlane
The first time I saw you,
The first words you spoke,
The first time we held hands,
The first time we kissed,
Our wedding day.
These are my memories, my treasures.
They are locked, safe in my heart,
And whenever I feel lonely or sad,
In my mind I live them once more,
Moment by moment,
Precisely as they happened.
And feel the happiness all over again
 

wedding day quotations and poems


Given in Marriage unto Thee by Emily Dickinson
Given in Marriage unto Thee
Oh thou Celestial Host --
Bride of the Father and the Son
Bride of the Holy Ghost.

Other Betrothal shall dissolve --
Wedlock of Will, decay --
Only the Keeper of this Ring
Conquer Mortality

 

Wedding Day Nerves by Stuart Macfarlane
Today we stand before the altar of love,
With nervous shuffles we take our places,
Bridesmaids and grooms like sentries stand,
Minister speaks of duty, responsibility and commitment,
“Will you take this woman . . . for as long as you both shall live?”

Stop! This is madness!

When the Champagne is finished and the celebrations end,
When rain has washed away the last piece of confetti,
What then?

You look at me and smile,
A smile full of warmth and understanding,
My worries melt away,
I know tomorrow is ours to behold,
And just like yesterday and today,
We will fill it with our love.

 

wedding day quotations and poems

A Marriage by R. S. Thomas
We met
under a shower
of bird-notes.
Fifty years passed,
love's moment
in a world in
servitude to time.
She was young;
I kissed with my eyes
closed and opened
them on her wrinkles.
`Come,' said death,
choosing her as his
partner for
the last dance, And she,
who in life
had done everything
with a bird's grace,
opened her bill now
for the shedding
of one sigh no
heavier than a feather.
 

Marriage Bells by Emma Lazarus
Music and silver chimes and sunlit air,
Freighted with the scent of honeyed orange-flower;
Glad, friendly festal faces everywhere.
She, rapt from all in this unearthly hour,
With cloudlike, cast-back veil and faint-flushed cheek,
In bridal beauty moves as in a trance
Alone with him, and fears to breathe, to speak,
Lest the rare, subtle spell dissolve perchance.
But he upon that floral head looks down,
Noting the misty eyes, the grave sweet brow--
Doubts if her bliss be perfect as his own,
And dedicates anew with inward vow
His soul unto her service, to repay
Richly the sacrifice she yields this day.
