I like the Saint Bernard one best, probably because it speaks to how I feel about my love. I actually really, really, really like it. 

Is there something that is extra meaningful to either of you? Maybe a quote from a favorite book? I’m using a quote from a philosopher because that was important academically to me.

I get a "Love Quote of the Day" on my iGoogle page, and I clicked the link and found this site! It only displays one at a time but might be helpful 🙂 Just clicking through, I found this one that I liked…

"We are all born for love… It is the principle of existence and its only end." Benjamin Disraeli

 My fav is the Helen Keller one 🙂

I love that EBB quote.  And I hadn’t come across the Tolstoy one but it’s great!   What’s it from.

We’re having Shakespeare’s sonnet 116 read at our ceremony, which I love but might not yield a great single (two line quote).  We’re also thinking of this by Rabrindranath Tagore which might yield a good pull out or two:

Unending Love

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times… In life after life, in age after age, forever. My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs, That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms, In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it’s age old pain, It’s ancient tale of being apart or together. As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge, Clad in the light of a pole-star, piercing the darkness of time. You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount. At the heart of time, love of one for another. We have played along side millions of lovers, Shared in the same shy sweetness of meeting, the distressful tears of farewell, Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.  

There are also several other threads that might help:

I love the Elizabeth Browning one, it’s short, to the point, extra sweet, and doesn’t reference the labor of love or anything. It just seems happier than some of the others to me. I love it!!
