A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton
The fierce Dinosaur was trapped inside his cage of ice. Although it was
cold he was happy in there. It was, after all, his cage.
Then along came the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
The Lovely Other Dinosaur melted the Dinosaur’s cage with kind words
and loving thoughts.
I like this Dinosaur thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
Although he is fierce he is also tender and he is funny.
He is also quite clever though I will not tell him this for now.
I like this Lovely Other Dinosaur, thought the Dinosaur. She is beautiful
and she is different and she smells so nice.
She is also a free spirit which is a quality I much admire in a dinosaur.
But he can be so distant and so peculiar at times, thought the Lovely
He is also overly fond of things.
Are all Dinosaurs so overly fond of things?
But her mind skips from here to there so quickly thought the Dinosaur.
She is also uncommonly keen on shopping.
Are all Lovely Other Dinosaurs so uncommonly keen on shopping?
I will forgive his peculiarity and his concern for things, thought the Lovely
Other Dinosaur. For they are part of what makes him a richly
Love. From the book A Natural History of Love by Diane Ackerman.
What a small word we use for an idea so immense and powerful it has
altered the flow of history, calmed monsters, kindled works of art,
cheered the forlorn, turned tough guys to mush, consoled the enslaved,
driven strong women mad, glorified the humble, fuelled national
scandals, bankrupted robber barons, and made mincemeat of kings.
How can love’s spaciousness be conveyed in the narrow confines of one
syllable? Love is an ancient delirium, a desire older than civilization, with
taproots stretching deep into dark and mysterious days…The heart is a
living museum. In each of its galleries, no matter how narrow or dimly
lit, preserved forever like wondrous diatoms, are our moments of loving
and being loved.”
The American writer Tim Robbins wrote
”Love is the ultimate outlaw.
It just won't adhere to any rules.
The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice.
Instead of vowing to honour and obey, maybe we should swear to aid
That would mean that security is out of the question.
The words "make" and "stay" become inappropriate.
The love they have for each other has no strings attached.
This love is for free.”
Prose - "A Marriage" by Mark Twain
A marriage...makes of two fractional lives a whole;
it gives to two purposeless lives a work, and doubles the strength of each to
it gives two questioning natures a reason for living, and something to live for;
it will give a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a
new beauty to the earth, and a new mystery to life.
George Eliot wrote:
What greater thing is there for two human hearts
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?
Love (William Penn)
Never marry but for love; but see that thou lovest what is lovely.
He that minds a body and not a soul has not the better part of that
relation, and will consequently want the noblest comfort of a married life.
Between a man and his wife nothing ought to rule but love…
As love ought to bring them together, so it is the best way to keep them
Nothing can be more entire and without reserve; nothing more zealous,
affectionate and sincere; nothing more contented and constant than such
Author Unknown. love is blind
They say love is blind.
Infatuation is blind, love is all-seeing and accepting.
Love is seeing all the flaws and blemishes and accepting them. Love is
accepting the bad habits and mannerisms, and working around them.
Love is recognizing all the fears and insecurities, and knowing your role is
to comfort. Love is working through all the challenges and painful times.
Infatuation is fragile and will shatter when life is not perfect. Love is
strong and strengthens because it is real.
Positive, Mahatma Gandhi
The Indian philosopher, pacifist and social leader Mahatma Gandhi
Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviour
Keep your behaviour positive because your behaviour becomes your
Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values
Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny
...and we are here today to see our bride and groom bring their
thoughts, words, behaviour, habits, and values together, to begin to find
their destiny, as they pledge themselves – each to the other, joining in
marriage before this gathering of their friends and family..
You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving. The
great acts of love are done by those who are habitually performing small
acts of kindness. We pardon to the extent we love. Love is knowing that
even when you are alone you will never be lonely again, and the greatest
happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves
and even loved in spite of ourselves.
