I don’t know if you can necessarily call these "quotes" but I like these little sayings I’ve gathered along the way….

"Tears of joy, Tears of laughter, Tears of Happily Ever After"

 Ambrose Bierce:  "Love is temporary insanity curable by marriage"

 Mignon McLaughlin: "A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."

 Rainer Maria Rilke: "A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other guardian of his solitude."

 Rita Rudner: "I think men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage. They’ve experienced pain and bought jewelry."

Will Stanton: "Getting a dog is like getting married. It teaches you to be less self-centered, to accept sudden, surprising outbursts of affection, and not to be upset by a few scratches on your car."

The Bible: 

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

and the standard:  "Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be"

My mom was helping my grandparents move out of their house of thirty-some years.  She asked my grandfather if he was upset about leaving his home.  He told my mom something that has always been my favorite love quote:

"My home is where ever she is." 

(Referring to my grandmother, of course.) Makes me all verklempt!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

From A walk to remember.  My favorite quote.

i collect love quotes… here are just a few of mine:

"let your love cover me, like a pair of angel wings" dar williams

"there was nobody in his life to slow him down with love" Annie Proulx

"the heart has its reasons, of which reason knows nothing" Pascal

"there is no love, only proof of love" Stealing Beauty

"intimacy is the princple source of the sugar with which this life is sweetened" Tom robbins

"the heart is an organ of fire" English Patient 

my all time favorite:

"do you want me to tell you something really subversive?  LOVE is everything its cracked up to be.  That’s why people are so cynical about it… It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for.  And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything you risk even more."  Erica Jong
