Emotion is the surest arbiter of a poetic choice, and it is the priest of all supreme unions in the mind.

Examine what is said, not him who speaks.
Celibacy is not just a matter of not having sex. It is a way of admiring a person for their humanity, maybe even for their beauty.
In marriage there are no manners to keep up, and beneath the wildest accusations no real criticism. Each is familiar with that ancient child in the other who may erupt again. We are not ridiculous to ourselves. We are ageless. That is the luxury of the wedding ring.
Married life requires shared mystery even when all the facts are known.
There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.
A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
To keep your marriage brimming, with love in the wedding cup, whenever you're wrong, admit it; whenever you're right, shut up.
The best friend is likely to acquire the best wife, because a good marriage is based on the talent for friendship.
In marriage do thou be wise; prefer the person before money; virtue before beauty; the mind before the body.
The day you marry, it is either kill or cure.
By all means marry. If you get a good wife you will become happy, and if you get a bad one you will become a philosopher.
A happy marriage perhaps represents the ideal of human relationship -- a setting in which each partner, while acknowledging the need of the other, feels free to be what he or she by nature is: a relationship in which instinct as well as intellect can find expression; in which giving and taking are equal; in which each accepts the other, and I confronts Thou.
Friends, if we be honest with ourselves, we shall be honest with each other.
Beauty when unadorned is adorned the most.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
Let nothing disturb thee; Let nothing dismay thee; All things pass; God never changes. Patience attains All that it strives for; He who has God Finds he lacks nothing;
A stiff apology is a second insult. The injured party does not want to be compensated because he has been wronged; he wants to be healed because he has been hurt.
It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.
He who begins by loving Christianity better than truth, will proceed by loving his own sect or church better than Christianity, and end in loving himself better than all.
I believe in Christianity as I believe in the rising sun; not because I see it, but by it I can see all else.
Where one man reads the Bible, a hundred read you and me.
Many people profess Christianity. Very few live it-almost none. And when you live it people may think you're crazy. It has been truthfully said that the world is equally shocked by one who repudiates Christianity as by one who practices it.
Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving anything in return.
The trouble with some of us is that we have been inoculated with small doses of Christianity which keep us from catching the real thing.
Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.
There are various orders of beauty, causing men to make fools of themselves in various styles... but there is one order of beauty which seems made to turn the heads not only of men, but of all intelligent mammals, even of women. It is a beauty like that of kittens, or very small downy ducks making gentle rippling noises with their soft bills, or babies just beginning to toddle and to engage in conscious mischief --a beauty with which you can never be angry, but that you feel ready to crush for inability to comprehend the state of mind into which it throws you.
That which is striking and beautiful is not always good; but that which is good is always beautiful.
He who is plenteously provided for from within, needs but little from without.
