Famous quotes containing the word marriage:

    But not gold in commercial quantities,
    Just enough gold to make the engagement rings
    And marriage rings of those who owned the farm.
    What gold more innocent could one have asked for?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    With my desire to write he seemed in full sympathy, and in urging our early marriage he argued that my first necessity was leisure in which to develop and to master my craft. It appeared to me that with such a man as teacher and guide I could not fail, and it was in a queer mixture of young love and vaulting ambition that I became a wife.
    Rheta Childe Dorr (1866–1948)

    the mother lies down on her marriage bed
    and eats up her heart like two eggs.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
