Lasting Marriage quotes by Anonymous
#4. a lasting marriage is worth $100,000 a year, since married people report being as happy, on average, as divorced (and not remarried) individuals who have incomes that are $100,000 higher. So, before you go to bed tonight, be sure to tell your spouse that you would not give him or her up for anything less than $100,000 a year. #Quote by Anonymous

an option. Anybody who gives themselves that option will get a divorce. #Quote by Will Smith
Lasting Marriage quotes by Billy Collins
#9. A lasting marriage, they say, is one where the two reach for different sections of the Sunday paper. Me, I go right for the obituaries, just like those very elderly characters in Muriel Spark's spooky novel, 'Memento Mori.' #Quote by Billy Collins
Lasting Marriage quotes by Robert Musil
#10. In the right circumstances, a man can help himself by writing a book about his point, or a pamphlet, or at least a letter to the editor, thereby putting his protest on the historical record, which is marvelously comforting even if nobody reads it. Usually, however, it can be counted on to attract the attention of a few readers who assure the author that he is a new Copernicus, whereupon they introduce themselves as unrecognized Newtons. This custom of picking points out of each other's fur is widespread and a great comfort, but it is without lasting effect because the participants soon fall to quarreling and find themselves isolated again. #Quote by Robert Musil
Lasting Marriage quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#11. Such silence has an actual sound, the sound of disappearance. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Lasting Marriage quotes by Sebastian Barry
#12. They had a house there below Kelsha, one of the old mud-walled jobs, that has long disappeared back into its garden of fuchsia and orange lilies that the mother herself had planted in her first days of marriage, as women do in their gardens, all full of hope. #Quote by Sebastian Barry
Lasting Marriage quotes by Jane Austen
#13. An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do. #Quote by Jane Austen
Lasting Marriage quotes by Robert Jeffress
#14. Christians lost the battle in the public square over gay marriage because, frankly, we were outthought, outfought, and outmarketed on the issue. #Quote by Robert Jeffress
Lasting Marriage quotes by Mary Gaitskill
#15. God famously doesn't afflict Job because of anything Job has done, but because he wants to prove a point to Satan. Twenty years later, I am sympathetic with my first assessment; to me, in spite of the soft radiant beauty of many of its passages, the Bible still has a mechanical quality, a refusal to brook complexity that feels brutal and violent. There has been a change, however. When I look at Revelation now, it still seems frightening and impenetrable, and it still suggests an inexorable, ridiculous order that is unknowable by us, in which our earthly concerns matter very little. However, it not longer reads to me like a chronicle of arbitrarily inflicted cruelty. It reads like a terrible abstract of how we violate ourselves and others and thus bring down endless suffering on earth. When I read And they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pain and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds, I think of myself and others I've known or know who blaspheme life itself by failing to have the courage to be honest and kind - and how then we rage around and lash out because we hurt. When I read the word fornication, I don't read it as a description of sex outside legal marriage: I read it as sex done in a state of psychic disintegration, with no awareness of one's self or one's partner, let alone any sense of honor or even real playfulness. I still don't know what to make of much of it, but I'm inclined to read it as a writer's primitive attempt to give form to his mor #Quote by Mary Gaitskill
Lasting Marriage quotes by Paula McLain
#16. I put some nice thick socks and my Alpine slippers and then curled up in a chair by the fire to read The Beautiful and Damned. 'Fitzgerald's a poet', Shakespear had said when she recommended it, [ ... ]. The writing was exquisite, I had to admit, but it was making me sad to read about Gloria and Anthony. They talked prettily and had nice things, but their lives were hollow. I didn't have the stomach for such a dire picture of marriage, not just now. #Quote by Paula McLain
Lasting Marriage quotes by Clive Davis
#17. It's not for me to determine what a country artist has in common with a hip-hop artist. You go for those with long-lasting careers. And that's what I've had as my target all my life. #Quote by Clive Davis
Lasting Marriage quotes by Florynce Kennedy
#18. Any woman who still thinks marriage is a fifty-fifty proposition is only proving that she doesn't understand either men or percentages. #Quote by Florynce Kennedy
Lasting Marriage quotes by Tim Farrington
#19. It was his wedding day, and then it was any day; it was nothing, and then it was forever. #Quote by Tim Farrington
Lasting Marriage quotes by Martin Amis
#20. There in the night their bed had the towelly smell of marriage. #Quote by Martin Amis
Lasting Marriage quotes by Anne Lamott
#21. Peace of mind is an inside job, unrelated to fame, fortune, or whether your partner loves you. Horribly, what this means is that it is also an inside job for the few people you love most desperately in the world. We cannot arrange lasting safety or happiness for our most beloved people. They have to find their own ways, their own answers. Not one single person in history has gotten an alcoholic sober. (Maybe you'll be the first. But - and I say this with love - I doubt it.) If it is someone else's problem, you probably don't have the solution. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Lasting Marriage quotes by Charles Wheelan
#22. Statistical inference is really just the marriage of two concepts that we've already discussed: data and probability (with a little help from the central limit theorem). #Quote by Charles Wheelan
Lasting Marriage quotes by Rick Warren
#23. Lasting change requires new ways of thinking. The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel determines the way you act. If you want to change how you act, you must begin by changing the way you think. Your thoughts are the autopilot of your life. #Quote by Rick Warren
Lasting Marriage quotes by Joseph Barth
#24. Marriage is our last, best chance to grow up. #Quote by Joseph Barth
Lasting Marriage quotes by Bret Lott
#25. It would be inaccurate, however, to say that my childhood was untroubled. The normal fears and worries of every child were in me developed to a high degree; every day was an awesome prospect. I was uneasy about practically everything: the uncertainty of the future, the dark of the attic, the panoply and discipline of school, the transitoriness of life, the mystery of the church and of God, the frailty of the body, the sadness of afternoon, the shadow of sex, the distant challenge of love and marriage, the far-off problem of a livelihood. #Quote by Bret Lott
Lasting Marriage quotes by Connie Kerbs
#26. We have indeed, felt the effects of the epic journey that has been our life. We have covered a lot of ground, parenting, marriage, career, family and otherwise, and at times, surely, have felt the worse for the wear, especially when different circumstances have chewed us up and spit us out! When it felt as if the kiln was stoked to maximum heat levels, and that we would shatter into a billion pieces that would never all be found! There are some differences now, having a little more seasoning to us. First of all, now we understand there is no such thing as being finished. There is always more firing, refining and glazing we can experience, and it is only a matter of when and how, not if we will do so. Secondly, we look forward to it, knowing now it would take more heat than possible to break us beyond repair. #Quote by Connie Kerbs
Lasting Marriage quotes by Nancy Mitford
#27. Oh dear ... it really is rather disillusioning. When one's friends marry for money they are wretched, when they marry for love it is worse. What is the proper thing to marry for, I should like to know? #Quote by Nancy Mitford
Lasting Marriage quotes by Helen Craik
#28. But it may be asked, could a man of real honor give his hand to one woman, while his heart was in the possession of another? In most cases of a similar description this question may be easily answered: in the present one, general conclusions, drawn from received opinions, will probably prove erroneous. #Quote by Helen Craik
Lasting Marriage quotes by Friedrich Engels
#29. That the mutual affection of the people concerned should be the one paramount reason for marriage, outweighing everything else, was and always had been absolutely unheard of in the practice of the ruling classes; that sort of thing only happened in romance – or among the oppressed classes, which did not count. #Quote by Friedrich Engels
Lasting Marriage quotes by Terry Eagleton
#30. A poem is a piece of semiotic sport, in which the signifier has been momentarily released from its grim communicative labours and can disport itself disgracefully. Freed from a loveless marriage to a single meaning, it can play the field, wax promiscous, gambol outrageously with similar unattached signifiers. If the guardians of conventional morality knew what scandalous stuff they were inscribing on their tombstones, they would cease to do so immediately. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Lasting Marriage quotes by Rajneesh
#31. Because love is dangerous, insecure ... And nobody knows where love will lead. It is just like a cloud - moving with no destination. Love is a hidden cloud, whereabouts unknown. Nobody knows where it is at any moment of time. Unpredictable - no astrologer can predict anything about love. About marriage? - astrologers are very, very helpful; they can predict. #Quote by Rajneesh
Lasting Marriage quotes by Howard Jacobson
#32. Marriage is like a barbecue. When you light a barbecue, it's very exciting to see the flames. That's lovely, but you have to wait until the flames have died down. Everything that you want from a barbecue happens on the hot embers. You can't cook on those flames. #Quote by Howard Jacobson
Lasting Marriage quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#33. Love always trust, always hopes, and always protects. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Lasting Marriage quotes by Esther Perel
#34. In committed sex, in marriage, people don't feel the need to seduce or to build anticipation - - that's an effort they think they no longer need to do now that they have conquered their partner. If they're in the mood, their partner should be too. #Quote by Esther Perel
Lasting Marriage quotes by Frank Rich
#35. The principal House sponsor (of the Defense of Marriage Act), Bob Barr of Georgia has been married three times
which raises the question of why the act doesn't contain a three-strikes-and-you're-out provision. #Quote by Frank Rich
Lasting Marriage quotes by Staci Bartley
#36. If love was absent, you would not feel disappointed; you would feel indifferent. #Quote by Staci Bartley
Lasting Marriage quotes by Brit Bennett
#37. This had always frightened her about marriage: how satisfied married people seemed, how unable they were to ask for more. She couldn't imagine feeling satisfied. #Quote by Brit Bennett
Lasting Marriage quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#38. Thus it is our daughters leave us,
Those we love, and those who love us!
Just when they have learned to help us,
When we are old and lean upon them,
Comes a youth with flaunting feathers,
With his flute of reeds, a stranger
Wanders piping through the village,
Beckons to the fairest maiden,
And she follows where he leads her,
Leaving all things for the stranger! #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Lasting Marriage quotes by Wendell Berry
#39. In recent years, our society has been required to think again of the issues of use and abuse of human beings. We understand, for instance, that the inability to distinguish between a particular woman and any woman is a condition predisposing to abuse. It is time that we learn to apply the same understanding to our country. The inability to distinguish between a farm and any farm is a condition predisposing to abuse, and abuse has been the result. Rape, indeed, has been the result, and we have seen that we are not exempt from the damage we have inflicted. Now we must think of marriage. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Lasting Marriage quotes by Savo Heleta
#40. I realize that what happened in Bosnia could happen anywhere in the world, particularly in places that are diverse and have a history of conflict. It only takes bad leadership for a country to go up in flames, for people of different ethnicity, color, or religion to kill each other as if they had nothing in common whatsoever. Having a democratic constitution, laws that secure human rights, police that maintain order, a judicial system, and freedom of speech don't ultimately guarantee long lasting peace. If greedy or bloodthirsty leaders come to power, it can all go down. It happened to us. It can happen to you. #Quote by Savo Heleta
Lasting Marriage quotes by Robert Creeley
#41. My wife and I lived all alone,
contention was our only bone.
I fought with her, she fought with me,
and things went on right merrily.
But now I live here by myself
with hardly a damn thing on the shelf,
and pass my days with little cheer
since I have parted from my dear. #Quote by Robert Creeley
Lasting Marriage quotes by Binnie Kirshenbaum
#42. The end of all things--a book, a life, a summer, a marriage, the last bite of cake, the last of innocence lost, a love affair--is always sad, at least a little bit sad, because it is the end, the end of that. #Quote by Binnie Kirshenbaum
Lasting Marriage quotes by Nicolas Chamfort
#43. Were a man to consult only his reason, who would marry? For myself, I wouldn't marry, for fear of having a son who resembled me. #Quote by Nicolas Chamfort
Lasting Marriage quotes by Rebecca Traister
#44. To be clear, the vast increase in the number of single women is to be celebrated not because singleness is in and of itself a better or more desirable state than coupledom. The revolution is in the expansion of options, the lifting of the imperative that for centuries hustled nearly all (non-enslaved) women, regardless of their individual desires, ambitions, circumstances, or the quality of available matches, down a single highway toward early heterosexual marriage and motherhood. #Quote by Rebecca Traister
Lasting Marriage quotes by J.D. Robb
#45. She woke to sunlight and the scent of coffee. The first thing she saw was Roarke, with a mug of coffee in his hand.
"how much would you pay for this?"
"Name your price." she sat up took it from him, drank gratefully. "this is one of my favorite parts of the marriage deal." She let the caffeine flow through her system. "I mean the sex is pretty good, but the coffee ... the Cofee is amazing. And you're all-round handy yourself most of the time.. thanks."
"Don't mention it. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Lasting Marriage quotes by Victor Hugo
#46. Age, eighteen or twenty, in accordance with a custom which is rather widely prevalent in parliamentary families. In spite of this marriage, however, it was said that Charles Myriel created a great deal of talk. He was well formed, though rather short in stature, elegant, graceful, intelligent; the whole of the first portion of his life had been devoted to the world and to gallantry. The Revolution came; events succeeded each other with precipitation; the parliamentary families, decimated, pursued, hunted down, were dispersed. M. Charles Myriel emigrated to Italy at the very beginning of the Revolution. There his wife died of #Quote by Victor Hugo
Lasting Marriage quotes by Madeleine De Scudery
#47. Men should keep their eyes wide open before marriage, and half-shut afterwards. #Quote by Madeleine De Scudery
Lasting Marriage quotes by Noam Chomsky
#48. An essential feature of a decent society, and an almost defining feature of a democratic society, is relative equality of outcome - not opportunity, but outcome. Without that you can't seriously talk about a democratic state ... These concepts of the common good have a long life. They lie right at the core of classical liberalism, of Enlightenment thinking ... Like Aristotle, [Adam] Smith understood that the common good will require substantial intervention to assure lasting prosperity of the poor by distribution of public revenues. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Lasting Marriage quotes by J. M. W. Turner
#49. I hate married men. They never make any sacrifices to the arts, but are always thinking of their duties to their wives and families or some rubbish of that sort. #Quote by J. M. W. Turner
Lasting Marriage quotes by Francis Bacon
#50. Spouses are great impediments to great enterprises. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Lasting Marriage quotes by Thomas Dekker
#51. The calmest husbands make the stormiest wives. #Quote by Thomas Dekker
