Wordy Wednesday

Can you believe it? The week has flown in and it's time for another delve into quotes and sayings for another Wordy Wednesday.

This week our theme is 'Weddings and Marriage'.

My daughter gets married on Thursday 6th October so this seemed like a good time to look at this subject. :)

Let's go!

'Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies' Aristotle

'Two souls with but a single thought,
Two hearts that beat as one.' Friedrich Halm

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

'Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.' Simone Signoret

'The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together.' Robert. C. Dodds

'To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong admit it;
Whenever you're right shut up.' Ogden Nash

'Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry.' Tom Mullen

'I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach.' Elizabeth Barrett Browning

'A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you.' Author unknown

'Who, being loved, is poor?' Oscar Wilde

' in your heart wasn't put there to stay,
love isn't love 'til you give it away.' Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music

'Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.' Robert Browning

'Love is above all the gift of oneself.' Jean Anouilh

'Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile' F. P. Jones

'Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.'
Robert Heinlein

As a little bonus here is a freebie word art using one of this weeks quotes.

(Thank you to Colette for making it for us....please leave her and Edna some 'love'...Gayle x)

There's a wee collection to be going on with. I'm sure you all have lots more and it would be fun to hear them, so if you have a quote you would like to add, pop it into the comments!

I'll have to be really organised for next week's post as no doubt I'll be haring about all over the show with last minute wedding preparations. Wish me luck!
