Friday Filosophy #2015-38

Tomorrow is a very special day. My daughter is getting married. Friday Filosophy #2015-38 offers some quotations about marriage. Have a great day, sweetheart.


It is not a lack of love, bit a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.

Friedrich Nietzsche


Let there be spaces in your togetherness, and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup with drink but drink not from one cup. Give one another your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone. Even as the strings of the lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, and the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

Khalin Gibran


Every good relationship, especially marriage, is based on respect. If it’s not based on respect nothing that appears to be good will last very long.

Amy Grant


I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

Rita Rudner


Love is moral even without legal marriage, but marriage is immoral without love.

Ellen Key


The time is now.
