Time rushes towards us with its hospital tray of infinitely varied narcotics, even while it is preparing us for its inevitably fatal operation.
‘Tis very certain the desire of life prolongs it.
To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.
Cursed is the man who dies, but the evil done by him survives.
Death borders upon our birth, and our cradle stands in the grave.
The first thing I did when I sold my book was buy a new wedding ring for my wife and asked her to marry me all over again.
A bride at her second marriage does not wear a veil. She wants to see what she is getting.
Getting married, for me, was the best thing I ever did. I was suddenly beset with an immense sense of release, that we have something more important than our separate selves, and that is the marriage. There’s immense happiness that can come from working towards that.
I am about to be married, and am of course in all the misery of a man in pursuit of happiness.
I want the big drama. I always said I don’t want a wedding I want a parade.
I have great hopes that we shall love each other all our lives as much as if we had never married at all.
I really did put up all my wedding pictures on my website. And I swear to you, my wedding pictures got downloaded just as much as my bikini pictures.
Bride: A woman with a fine prospect of happiness behind her.
That is ever the way. ‘Tis all jealousy to the bride and good wishes to the corpse.
James M. Barrie
The chain of wedlock is so heavy that it takes two to carry it – and sometimes three.
First love is only a little foolishness and a lot of curiosity.
George Bernard Shaw
