Love, with very young people, is a heartless business. We drink at that age from thirst, or to get drunk; it is only later in life that we occupy ourselves with the individuality of our wine.

Love is more pleasant once you get out of
your twenties. It doesn't hurt all the time.

Sensual pleasure passes and vanishes in the twinkling of an eye, but the friendship between us, the mutual confidence, the delights of the heart, the enchantment of the soul, these things do not perish and can never be destroyed. I shall love you until I die.

Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.

e've been together now for forty years,
An' it don't seem a day too much;
There ain't a lady livin' in the land
As I'd swop for my dear old Dutch.

At the end of a tiring day when he was feeling his aches a little more than usual, an elderly man retired to bed with his wife, turned off the light and settled comfortably on his pillow.
He was just beginning to feel rested when his wife said, "Henry, you didn't kiss me good night." He turned over, kissed her on the cheek and once more settled himself for the night. He was just starting to doze off when his wife chided, "Henry, dear, you didn't kiss me on the neck." With a sigh, he turned over again and kissed her on the neck. He was almost asleep when his wife said plaintively, "Henry, dearest, you didn't nibble my ear."

At this, the old man threw back the bed covers, leaped out of bed and began rummaging wildly on the dressing table books thudded to the floor, perfume bottles crashed about and hair brushes bounced noisily off the walls.

"Henry! Henry!" his wife shouted anxiously above the din, "what on earth are you doing?" Still threshing around, he replied tersely, "For the sake of peace, woman, I'm trying to find my dentures!"

It is love in old age, no longer blind, that is true love. For love's highest intensity doesn't necessarily mean its highest quality. Glamour and jealousy are gone: and the ardent caress, no longer needed, is valueless, compared to the reassuring touch of a trembling hand. Passers-by commonly see little beauty in the embrace of young lovers on a park bench, but the understanding smile of an old wife to her husband is one of the loveliest things in the world.

That quiet mutual gaze of a trusting husband and wife is like the first
moment of rest or refuge from a great weariness or a great danger.

Photographer James Vander Zee says of a youthful photograph of his wife displayed in his home: "When she was young I loved her because she was beautiful. When she got old I loved her because I knew her."

There is a romance appropriate for every age and stage, and it is vital that we keep romance in marriage if it is to succeed and if we are to achieve happiness for ourselves and our children. We must take real care, lest "moonlight and roses" become "daylight and dishes"! A movie star has been quoted as saying that "marriage kills romance". That ought not be and is not true if romance is understood rightly.
Someone has defined romance as "a long story of love". The dictionary defines it as "a dreamy imaginative habit of mind tending to dwell on the picturesquely unusual." Both of these definitions are realistically true! Romance in marriage is to be found in the long story of love that began before marriage and found fulfilment after marriage.

It is to be found in the wonder of relationships that are colourful, thrilling and practical. The romance of marriage includes all the joys of marriage as well as the hazards. It is a way of life for a couple within the bounds of responsible marriage.

Theirs was that substantial affection which arises (if any arises at all) when the two who are thrown together begin first by knowing the rougher sides of each other's character, and not the best till further on, the romance growing up in the interstices of a mass of hard prosaic reality The feeling proves itself to be the only love which is strong as death-that love which many waters cannot quench, nor the floods drown, beside which the passion usually called by the name is evanescent as steam.

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.

Love isn't an act, it's a whole life. It's staying with her now because she needs you. It's knowing you and she will still care about each other when sex and daydreams, fights and futures-when all that's on the shelf and done with. Love-well, I'll tell you what love is: It's you at seventy-five and her at seventy-one, each of you listening for the other's step in the next room, each afraid that a sudden silence, a sudden cry, could mean a lifetime's talk is over.

He will grow old and you will grow old,
He will love you and you love him.
May your sun set in a blaze of gold
And the night creep in.

Gentlemen, to the lady without whom I should never have survived to eighty, nor sixty, nor yet thirty years. Her smile has been my lyric, her understanding the rhythm of the stanza. She has been the spring where from I have drawn the words. She is the poem of my life.
