For true love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have. And if you go to draw at the true fountainhead, the more water you draw, the more abundant is its flow.

Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
The world is round so that friendship may encircle it.
One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Any law that takes hold of a mans daily life cannot prevail in a community, unless the vast majority of the community are actively in favor of it. The laws that are the most operative are the laws which protect life.
In communities where men build ships for their own sons to fish or fight from, quality is never a problem
In law, nothing is certain but the expense.
The kind of lawyer you hope the other fellow has.
The good of the people is the greatest law.
The wise know that foolish legislation is a rope of sand, which perishes in the twisting.
There is but one law for all, namely that law which governs all law, the law of our Creator, the law of humanity, justice, equity -- the law of nature and of nations.
Bad laws are the worst form of tyranny.
Lawyers are the only persons in whom ignorance of the law is not punished.
Every law is an infraction of liberty.
Laws and institutions, like clocks, must occasionally be cleaned, wound up, and set to true time.
Laws are not masters, but servants, and he rules them, who obeys them.
It takes two to make a marriage a success and only one to make it a failure.
I sometimes wish that people would put a little more emphasis on the observance of the law than they do upon its enforcement.
The trouble with law is lawyers.
I know of no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so effective as their strict execution.
The English laws punish vice; the Chinese laws do more, they reward virtue.
The laws of probability, so true in general, so fallacious in particular.
The jury consist of twelve persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer.
Laws too gentle, are seldom obeyed; too severe, seldom executed.
No law can be sacred to me but that of my nature. Good and bad are but names very readily transferable to that or this; the only right is what is after my own constitution; the only wrong what is against it.
The good lawyer is not the man who has an eye to every side and angle of contingency, and qualifies all his qualifications, but who throws himself on your part so heartily, that he can get you out of a scrape.
The laws of each are convertible into the laws of any other.
Good men must not obey the laws too well.
If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers.
When a girl marries, she exchanges the attentions of all the other men of her acquaintance for the inattention of just one.
Marriage is a lottery in which men stake their liberty and women their happiness.
Be to their virtue very kind; be to their faults a little blind.
All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest --never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.
Matrimony is the union of meanness and martyrdom.
Heaven will be no heaven to me if I do not meet my wife there.
A marriage based on full confidence, based on complete and unqualified frankness on both sides; they are not keeping anything back; there's no deception underneath it all. If I might so put it, it's an agreement for the mutual forgiveness of sin.
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.
She is a wife who is the soul of her husband.
Try to take for a mate a person of your own neighborhood.
Matrimony is the high sea for which no compass has yet to be invented.
The married are those who have taken the terrible risk of intimacy and, having taken it, know life without intimacy to be impossible.
Two souls and one thought, two hearts and one pulse.
Rituals are important. Nowadays it's hip not to be married. I'm not interested in being hip.
There is, hidden or flaunted, a sword between the sexes till an entire marriage reconciles them.
Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.
In marriage do thou be wise; prefer the person before money; virtue before beauty; the mind before the body.
The best friend is likely to acquire the best wife, because a good marriage is based on the talent for friendship.
To keep your marriage brimming, with love in the wedding cup, whenever you're wrong, admit it; whenever you're right, shut up.
In almost every marriage there is a selfish and an unselfish partner. A pattern is set up and soon becomes inflexible, of one person always making the demands and one person always giving way.
Often the difference between a successful marriage and a mediocre one consists of leaving about three or four things a day unsaid.
After seven years of marriage, I'm sure of two things -- first, never wallpaper together, and second, you'll need two bathrooms.. both for her. The rest is a mystery, but a mystery I love to be involved in.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
Marriage is the best state for man in general, and every man is a worst man in proportion to the level he is unfit for marriage.
The problem with marriage is that it ends every night after making love, and it must be rebuilt every morning before breakfast.
A successful marriage is an edifice that must be rebuilt every day.
A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.
They do not love that do not show their love. The course of true love never did run smooth. Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.
Love is not love until love's vulnerable.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit; it is its own fruit, its own enjoyment. I love because I love; I love in order that I may love.
Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.
Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.
