>He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know where he ended and she began. ~Leo Tolstoy
Two such as you with such a master speed cannot be parted nor be swept away from one another once you are agreed that life is only life forevermore together wing to wing and oar to oar. — Robert Frost
I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. ." – Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) English Poet
The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart. ~ by Helen Keller ~
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, 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? — George Eliot
We find rest in those we love, and we provide a resting place in ourselves for those who love us.
–Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

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:
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.

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!!
