1. What excitement can match the intimate unfolding of another life?

2. The beauty of love is that giving and receiving become indistinguishable.

3. Each of us is born, lives, and dies alone, certain of nothing more than that we exist. Marriage is like a bamboo house built on stilts in the midst of that mad, rushing stream.

4. You are truly married when reflexively, without so much as a flicker of awareness, you begin to think of yourself as "we."
