My favorite quote from the Marriage Fireside we attended last
Friday night was this one by Meryl Streep at the Academy
"First I’m going to thank Don because when you thank
your husband at the end of the speech they play him out
with the music and I want him to know that everything I
value most in our lives, you’ve given me."
The fireside speaker then said, "So what kind of a husband
do you think he was after that??"
Married 38 years when she said the above.
The night before, we got to also attend a book signing by the
same man, Michael Parsons, who did the marriage fireside.
What a beast it can be.
completely ruined forever a marriage of two good people.
Here's another quote he gave, this one by Mark Twain:
"Temper is what gets most of us in trouble.
Pride is what keeps us there."
I think this would apply to any relationship.
Lots of quotes that night, but here's another favorite. This time by, was Samuel Johnson:
ambition, the end to which every enterprise and labor
Who could not agree with that?
