Happy Love Day.


A happy man marries the girl he loves; a happier man loves the girl he marries.

"I've fallen in love many times... always with you."

"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." – Aristotle

The four most important words in any marriage..."I'll do the dishes."

Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards. - Benjamin Franklin

It is impossible to love and be wise. - Francis Bacon

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.” – Charles M. Schulz

 Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.  C.S. Lewis

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”  Neil Gaiman

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” – C.S. Lewis

No man is truly married until he understands every word his wife is NOT saying. 

I have decided to stick with love.  Hate is too great a burden to bear.  Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.  Mother Teresa

“A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.” – Jane Austen

“Love is not blind; that is the last thing that it is. Love is bound; and the more it is bound the less it is blind.” – G.K. Chesterton

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”  Lao Tzu

A woman know the face of the man she loves as a sailor know the open sea.  Honore de Balzac

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.  A. A. Milne

The great happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.  Victor Hugo

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.  Mark Twain

Who, being loved, is poor?  Oscar Wilde

“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”  Albert Einstein

My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep;
the more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite.  Shakespeare

Lord, grant that I might no so much seek to be loved as to love.  St. Francis of Assisi

“There is the great lesson of 'Beauty and the Beast,' that a thing must be loved before it is lovable.”  G.K. Chesteron

Love conquers all.  Virgil

A new command I give you:  Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  Jesus
