to marriage or desire for marriage may be a life long experience
of the greatest value to themselves and to all their circle
of acquaintance and of activity; but for this type of friendship

in lifelong friendship who seeks marriage must find a still
rarer man or woman to wed, to make such a three cornered comradeship
a permanent success.

I first learned the concepts of non-violence in my marriage.
Love is blind, but marriage restores its sight.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
What you are as a single person, you will be as a married person,

of his solitude.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Marriage is the alliance of two people, one of whom never remembers
birthdays and the other who never forgets them.

Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth for
Now there is no more loneliness, for each of you will be companion

W. H. Auden
You and I
Have so much love,
Burns like a fire,
In which we bake a lump of clay
Molded into a figure of you
And a figure of me.
Then we take both of them,
And break them into pieces,
And mix the pieces with water,
And mold again a figure of you,
And a figure of me.
I am in your clay.
You are in my clay.
In life we share a single quilt.
In death we will share a single coffin.
