Shakespeare always has the best to say--no body ever said it better. I think you could write an entire set of wedding vows with just Shakespeare quotes!

"I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest."
- William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing, 4.1

You can just Google "marriage quotes" and find many. I love, love, love the stamp on that letter. I looked it up...King and Queen of Hearts. How delightful.

I love a blog entitled "Seven Pounds of Candy"! LOL!

my niece is getting married and i just gave her an entire book of quotes! she's not too tech savvy, otherwise i would have sent her to the internet also. i think that's your best bet.

Okay, I have a whole list of quotes that come from Chris' grandparents Pritchard. They owned a jewelry store, and wrote the Art of Marriage to be given out to anyone who bought wedding rings! (They also handed out what they called Beatitudes for Married Couples, but listing those would make this post too long!)
The Art of Marriage:
It is never being too cold to hold hands

It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once each day.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
it is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should't end with the honeymoon.

It is doing things for each other, not with an attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.

It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It is not expecting one another to wear a halo or the wings of an angel; you're not looking for perfection in each other; instead, cultivate flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.

It is creating an atmosphere in which each can grow.

It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

It is discovering what marriage can be, at its best, as expressed in the words Mark Twain used in a tribute to his wife: "Wherever she was, there was Eden."

Wise words courtesy of the former Pritchard Jewelers : )

7 pounds of candy, nummm nummmmmmmm!!! I love buying stuff in bulk, if a handful of candy looks wonderful 53 handfuls has gotta be better! :) I don't know if I know of any marriage quotes, least if I do they are hiding in the shadowy depths of my ol' grey matter, most likely behind the covetous thoughts about 7 pounds of candy... I will pass any along if I see/think/find any.
