Marriage is a sacred union between two people and two families. In India, not only do two people get together but their entire lives amalgamate into one. And when you get along with the person of your dreams, there's nothing like it. Waking up every day to that face, having your morning coffee together, getting home and just relaxing together, enjoying the silences together and even spending 'me time' together- all this is beautiful when you have someone beside you.
So to celebrate marriage and everything it beautifully symbolises, here are 10 quotes that will make you fall in love all over again.
“So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, every day. You and me... every day.”
- Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
“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 but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, even as the strings of a 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.”
- Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
"The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife."
- Barbara De Angelis
"Marriage is not a noun; it's a verb. It isn't something you get. It's something you do. It's the way you love your partner every day."
- Barbara De Angelis
"The secret to a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they're right if you love to be with them all the time."
- Julia Child
Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.
- Franz Schuber
"Marriage – the roots are deep, the covenant is solid, love is sweet, life is hard, and God is good."
"Marriage lets you annoy one special person for the rest of your life."
"It’s amazing how one day someone walks into your life, and you cannot remember how you ever lived without them."
"To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to be loved by the person you love is everything."
