Early Valentine's Day
Just in time for Valentine's Day. My periodic phoning-it-in, all-quote post requiring zero effort on my part.

People shop for a bathing suit with more care than they do a husband or wife. The rules are the same. Look for something you'll feel comfortable wearing. Allow for room to grow.
To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down.

Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell.
When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one thing: either the car is new or the wife is.
Many a man owes his success to his first wife, and his second wife to his success.

Don't forget to love yourself.
