I hope you're getting this down." - Woody Allen he hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread. ~Mother Teresa

SHAKESPEARE God, the best maker of all marriages, Combine your hearts into one. -- John 13:34-35 Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts. -- William Shakespeare

It is the star to every wandering bark, whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. -- William Shakespeare Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better. -- William Shakespeare Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs, Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes, Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears. What is it else? A madness most discreet, A choking gall and a preserving sweet. -- William Shakespeare Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts. -- William Shakespeare Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds. -- William Shakespeare They do not love that do not show their love. -- William Shakespeare The courses of true love never did run smooth.

If music be the food of love, play on -- William Shakespeare No sooner met but they looked; No sooner looked but they loved; No sooner loved but they sighed; No sooner signed but they asked one another the reason; No sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy; And in these degrees have they made a pair of stairs to marriage... -- William Shakespeare, As Your Like It Doubt thou the stars are fire, Doubt the sun doth move, Doubt truth to be a liar but never doubt thy love. -- William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act II, Scene II

Evergreen Barbara Streisand Love, soft as an easy chair, love, fresh as the morning air. One love that is shared by two, I have found with you. Like a rose under the April snow I was always certain love would grow. Love, ageless and evergreen seldom seen by two. You and I will make each night a first every day a beginning. Spirits rise and their dance is unrehearsed they warm and excite us cause we have the brightest love, two lights that shine as one. Morning glory and the midnight sun. Time, we've learned to sail above, time can't change the meaning of one love ageless and ever, evergreen
