marriage

A Quote by Warren Cooley on duty, love, relationships, marriage, sex, and couples

 

The duty of love proceeds from logic.  A fundamental truth of love is that it is always for creation. It is also a fundamental truth of lovers that they can never know what is best for their beloved.  Therefore the harsh duty of love is to let go.

A Quote by Byron Katie on marriage, metaphor, divorce, honesty, integrity, yes, and no

The voice within is what I'm married to.  All marriage is a metaphor for that marriage.  My lover is the place inside me where an honest yes and no come from.  That's my true partner.  It's always there.  And to tell you yes when my integrity says no is to divorce that partner.

A Quote by Robert Fulghum on marriage, great companions, friends, significant others, maze, and mazes

The point is that getting married for lust or money or social status or even love is usually trouble.  The point is that marriage is a maze into which we wander - a maze that is best got through with a great companion.

Robert Fulghum (1937 -)

A Quote by Byron Katie on love, marriage, husband, spouse, and divorce

Nothing can cost you someone you love. The only thing that can cost you your husband is if you believe a thought. That's how you move away from him. That's how the marriage ends. You are one with your husband until you believe the thought that he should look a certain way, he should give you something, he should be something other than what he is. That's how you divorce him. Right then and there you have lost your marriage.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on marriage

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.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)
