The Greatest Inspirational
I would like to share the possibility that we are each complete beings. We do not need to find another person to complete us. Rather there is a wonderful person out there that we can share our life with.
Two people inspiring each other, creating, exploring, and sharing together, yet each with a life their own.
To quote Kahlil Gibran- Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
I look at marriage or a long term relationship as being a great gift two people share with one another, not of bondage, but rather of opportunity. You shouldn't have to give yourself away to be with another. Your love could be rich and full providing a fertile ground for growth, self-expression, and fulfillment. I hope you enjoy these inspirational marriage quotes.
Life has taught us
that love does not consist in gazing at each other
but in looking outward together in the same direction.
-Antoine de Saint Exupery
A happy marriage is a long conversation
which always seems too short.
Marriage is not a ritual or an end.
It is a long, intricate, intimate dance together
and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance
and your choice of partner.
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart,
not in the ballroom or church or synagogue.
It's a choice you make
not just on your wedding day,
but over and over again
and that choice is reflected
in the way you treat your husband or wife.
-Barbara De Angelis
When marrying, ask yourself this question:
Do you believe that you will be able
to converse well with this person into your old age?
Everything else in marriage is transitory.
Marriages are made in heaven
and consummated on Earth.
Intimacy is what makes a marriage,
not a ceremony, not a piece of paper from the state.
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.
A good marriage is one
which allows for change and growth in the individuals
and in the way they express their love.
-Pearl S. Buck
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times,
always with the same person.
The more you invest in a marriage,
the more valuable it becomes.
A happy marriage has in it all the pleasures of a friendship,
all the enjoyments of sense and reason,
and indeed, all the sweets of life.
Success in marriage
does not come merely through finding the right mate,
but through being the right mate.
-Barnett R. Brickner
It was only long after the ceremony
that we learned why we got married in the first place.
Marriage is love personified.
