the Pilot Guy and I a
re celebrating
years of marriage.

Chains do not hold a marriage together.
It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years.
Simone Signoret
Marriage is not just spiritual communion; it is also remembering to take out the trash.
Joyce Brothers

Real giving is when we give to our spouses what's important to them,
whether we understand it, like it, agree with it, or not.
Michele Weiner-Davis

They do not love who do not show their love.
William Shakespeare
The Beauty of Love:
The question is asked, "Is there anything more beautiful in life than a young couple clasping hands and pure hearts in the path of marriage? Can there be anything more beautiful than young love?"
And the answer is given. "Yes, there is a more beautiful thing. It is the spectacle of an old man and an old woman finishing their journey together on that path. Their hands are gnarled, but still clasped; their faces are seamed, but still radiant; their hearts are physically bowed and tired, but still strong with love and devotion for one another.
Yes, there is a more beautiful thing than young love.
Old love."
Two persons who love each other are in a place more holy than the interior of a church.
William Lyon Phelps
There is nothing more lovely in life than the union of two people whose love for one another has grown through the years, from the small acorn of passion, into a great rooted tree.
Vita Sackville-West
Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.
Robert Browning

Congratulations to you two! Being a lover of quotes like you, I wanted to gift you with a few of my favorites. By the way, thanks for your wonderful quotes on love and marriage--I have saved them to my "collection." Hope you have a wonderful week-end of celebration.

A successful marriage is an edifice that must be rebuilt every day.
~Andre Maurois~

It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.
~Nikki Giovanni~

Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. ~Antoine De Saint-Exupery~
