9 Years Ago Today

Nothing is nobler, nor more admirable, than when two people who see eye to eye live together as husband and wife, thereby confounding their enemies and delighting their friends. -- Homer
Marriage is an act of will that signifies and involves a mutual gift, which unites the spouses and binds them to their eventual souls, with whom they make up a sole family -- a domestic church. -- Pope John Paul II
As a lily among thorns, so is my beloved among women -- Song of Songs 2:2

As an apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my lover among men. -- Song of Songs 2:3
No sooner met but they looked; no sooner looked but they loved; no sooner loved but they sighed; no sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason; no sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy; and in these degrees have they made a pair of stairs to marriage, which they will climb incontinent, or else be incontinent before marriage. -- Shakespeare, "As You Like It"
