Wit and Wisdom on Love

I was thinking that I wasn’t going to have a post for today, but you never know what may pop into my brain.

As I had shared on Friday, my niece is getting married tomorrow! A thought came to me that it would be fun to give the new couple some wit and wisdom from my very wise and witty readers!

What have you learned about love that you would like to share?

What do you think is something that is very important in a relationship?

Do you have a favorite quote on love or wisdom that was passed down to you that you would like to share?

Share whatever you would like, it would be much appreciated and I will compile all your comments into something to hand over to the newlyweds.

If something doesn’t come to your mind, don’t stress over it, its okay! But if you feel led to share something, then Thank you very much and I look forward to reading them. πŸ™‚

  1. Here’s my wit and wisdom: Cancel your expensive wedding plans. Most couples divorce over money issues. So save your money and head down to the courthouse for a quick and cheap marriage, and then start your lives together with some marriage insurance in the bank.

  2. “A single rose can be my garden; a single friend, my world.” (Leo Buscaglia)

    “Let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. β€œ (Gibran)

    “In the end there doesn’t have to be anyone who understands you. There just has to be someone who wants to.” (Robert Brault)

    “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.” (Tao Te Ching)

    “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” (Leo Buscaglia)

    • Thank you Colin! They are all wonderful quotes! Robert Brault’s stood out to me, for I don’t remember hearing of him before, his words are so true. I don’t expect Brad to always understand me, in fact I don’t think anyone can, BUT….. I know the ones who care, and that’s what matters!

  3. From someone who has never been married my advice is
    If you are honest, you will remain loyal.
    If you communicate, being honest comes easy.
    Seeking a counselor before the shit hits the fan isn’t a bad idea and for the sake of us all – stay married. Do the work as individuals and as a team. And for more direct advice to the groom – If she asks, she knows the answer. Be honest and all will prevail.

    • Awesome words of wisdom. You are so right, we should never be unkind and therapy can definitely help sometimes, if you are willing to be open to it!
      Thank you very much!

  4. 1) Far too many people cannot differentiate between ‘love’ and ‘lust’
    2) Honesty and mutual respect are the ONLY two important things
    3) β€˜If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours. If it doesn’t, it never was.’

    Best of luck to your niece for a long and happy marriage!

  5. Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to our own. ~ Robert Heinlein

    If we’re focused on THEM and adding to THEIR happiness . . . it’s probably LOVE. If we’re focused on wanting THEM to make US happy . . . it’s probably not.

    Best Wishes to the newlyweds!
    We’re celebrating 35 years next month ~> “Happiness is being married to your best friend.”
