As two brilliantly differently coloured threads, woven in opposite directions can form a beautiful tapestry, so, with openness of both mind and heart, can your two brilliantly differently coloured souls merge together to form a beautiful marriage.
As timeless and stunning as the tapestry is to behold, at any time of its life, the fact is that at times, weaving and designing the tapestry was not only joyous and rewarding but also tiring and necessarily complex. Sonia Steiner
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring. Oscar Wilde
There is only one happiness in life; to love and be loved. George Sand
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life, to strengthen each other in all labour, to rest on each other in sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting? George Elliot
Love is patient. Love is kind. Love does not envy. Love does not boast. Love is not proud. Love is not rude. Love is not self-seeking. Love is not easily angered. Love keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil. Love rejoices with the truth. Love always protects. Love always trusts. Love always hopes. Love always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 Marriage is a mosaic you build with your spouse. Millions of tiny moments that create your love story. Jennifer Smith
“Poets and playwrights have worked throughout the ages to unravel and enlighten us on love, to no effect.Love, who we love and how we love, remains an enchanting mystery of our human condition.” Sonia Steiner, Civil Marriage Celebrant, Byron Bay, NSW
