A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Franz Schubert

Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.

Thomas Moore

Romantic love is an illusion. Most of us discover this truth at the end of a love affair or else when the sweet emotions of love lead us into marriage and then turn down their flames.

Marilyn Monroe

Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.

Honore de Balzac

One should believe in marriage as in the immortality of the soul.
