Marriage quotes page 3

Leonardo da Vinci

day.
Franklin P. Jones

I've repeatedly said that for people as little in common as Joanne and myself, we have an
uncommonly good marriage. We are actors, we make pictures - and that's about all we have
in common. Maybe that's enough. Wives shouldn't feel obligated to accompany their
husbands to a ball game, husbands do look a bit silly attending morning coffee breaks with
the neighbourhood wives when most men are out at work. Husbands and wives should have
separate interests, cultivate different sets of friends - and not impose one upon the other.
Paul Newman

I had bad luck with both my wives. The first one left me and the second one didn't.

There are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don't respect the
other person, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don't know how to compromise,
you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can't talk openly about what goes on between you,
you're gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don't have a common set of values in life,
you're gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.
Mitch Albom

Marriage has many pains, but celibacy has no pleasures.
Samuel Johnson

A good wife is one who serves her husband in the morning like a mother does, loves him in

Chanakya

Tolerance is the one essential ingredient... You can take it from me that the Queen has the
quality of tolerance in abundance.

If "an apple a day keeps the doctor away," maybe a compliment a day will keep the counselor
away.
Gary Chapman

There is an old law of physics that you can only get out of a thing as much as you put in it.
The man who puts into the marriage only half of what he owns will get that out.
Ronald Reagan

The purpose of relationships is not to have another complete you. But to have another with
whom to share your completeness.

marriage.

to different sexes.

A good marriage is like an incredible retirement fund. You put everything you have into it
during your productive life, and over the years it turns from silver to gold to platinum.
Willard Scott

We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry, or because they remain intrigued
with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck. But part of it has got to be
forgiveness and gratefulness.

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.
