QUOTES ON MARRIAGE
We all could use advice in our marriages no matter how long we’ve been together.
I could bore you all day on anecdotes from my marriage on what not to do, but this time I want to share with you some of my favorite quotes on love and relationships that are applicable to marriage.
Here are my faves:
“Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be.” – Anton Chekhov
“You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving.” -Saint Francis de Sales
“Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.” -Ursula K. Le Guin
“You don’t marry one person; you marry three: the person you think they are, the person they are, and the person they are going to become as a result of being married to you.” -Richard Needham
“A happy marriage is the union of two forgivers.”-Ruth Bell Graham
“Many married couples separate because they quarrel incessantly, but just as many separate because they were never honest enough or courageous enough to quarrel when they should have.” -Sydney J. Harris
“Where there is love, there is life.” -Mahatma Gandhi
“The art of conversation lies in listening.” -Malcolm Forbes
“The only way to have a friend is to be one.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Every moment is a fresh beginning.”-T. S. Eliot
“A friend accepts us as we are yet helps us to be what we should.” -Author Unknown
WISDOM FROM THE BIBLE
“Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
“Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4
“Two are better than one, because they have good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
