Marriage quotes will touch our hearts. We start pondering about our lives and relationships. Then we start changing our thoughts and behaving differently. Now, we know everything was inside us, we just needed something to tap into it. How powerful it is if one word can change us. The most powerful thing is "us" because the power to change is always inside.
“Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed.”
“More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse.”
“Marriage is not a noun; it's a verb. It isn't something you get. It's something you do. It's the way you love your partner every day.”
~Barbara De Angelis~
“When entering into a marriage one ought to ask oneself: do you believe you are going to enjoy talking with this woman up into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory, but most of the time you are together will be devoted to conversation.”
The formula for a happy marriage? It's the same as the one for living in California: when you find a fault, don't dwell on it”
Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.
“I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.”
Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the "right stuff" to turn our dreams into reality.”
“It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.”
The relationship between commitment and doubt is by no means an antagonistic one. Commitment is healthiest when it's not without doubt but in spite of doubt.”
~Dr. Rollo May~
Passion is the quickest to develop, and the quickest to fade. Intimacy develops more slowly, and commitment more gradually still.”
Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.”
~Peter F. Drucker~
“You need to make a commitment, and once you make it, then life will give you some answers.”
“Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.”
The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in."
I understand now that the vulnerability I've always felt is the greatest strength a person can have. You can't experience life without feeling life. What I've learned is that being vulnerable to somebody you love is not a weakness, it's a strength.
In the beginning, people think vulnerability will make you weak, but it does the opposite. It shows you're strong enough to care.
"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning"(p.43).
"The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in" (p.52).
~From "Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom~
