Famous quotes containing the word matrimonial:

    That nameless and infinitely delicate aroma of inexpressible tenderness and attentiveness which, in every refined and honorable attachment, is contemporary with the courtship, and precedes the final banns and the rite; but which, like the bouquet of the costliest German wines, too often evaporates upon pouring love out to drink, in the disenchanting glasses of the matrimonial days and nights.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Always remember, Peggy, it’s matrimonial suicide to be jealous when you have a really good reason.
    Clare Boothe Luce (1903–1987)

    Let me approach at least, and touch thy hand.
    [Samson:] Not for thy life, lest fierce remembrance wake
    My sudden rage to tear thee joint by joint.
    At distance I forgive thee, go with that;
    Bewail thy falsehood, and the pious works
    It hath brought forth to make thee memorable
    Among illustrious women, faithful wives:
    Cherish thy hast’n’d widowhood with the gold
    Of Matrimonial treason: so farewel.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
