Love quotes

When Dave and I were planning our wedding, I collected various quotes about love for the program and vows. I didn't use all of them, of course, but they are good quotes and I found one of the pages I copied. In my effort to eradicate such bits of paper, I am putting them here.


For whither thou goest, I will go
And whither thou lodgest, I will lodge,
Thy people shall be my people,
And thy God my God.
Where thou diest, will I die,
And there I will be buried.
The Lord do so to me, and more also
If aught but death part thee and me.

Ruth 1:16-17

(I love this all the more because it is from one woman to another.)


There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear.

1 John 4:18


I have a chair for you in the smallest parlor in the world, to wit, my heart.

Emily Dickinson


'Tis sweet to know
there is an eye will mark
Our coming and will
look better when we

Lord Byron


We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe


The ring is on my hand,
And the wreath is on my brow,
Satins and jewels grand
Are all at my command
And I am happy now.

Edgar Allan Poe


something we did use, on the face of our program:

Apache Wedding Prayer

Now you will feel no rain,
For each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold,
For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no more loneliness,
For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two bodies,
But there is only one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place
To enter into the days of your togetherness
and may your days be good and long upon the earth.
