Wedding quotes

Before you get married, keep both eyes open, but close one afterwards.
From Jamaica


Lovely in the brides' curls / the virginal wreath plays / when the bright church bells / invite you to the feast's shine / Oh! The most beautiful celebration of life / ends also the May of life, / with the belt, with the veil / the beautiful delusion tears in two.

Do you know where the love between man and woman actually comes from, the longing for the other? You will surely have your own explanation, but I will tell you now where it really comes from. Plato, the great Greek philosopher, informed us about it: Originally there were only people who were man and woman at the same time, beings with four arms and four legs - but unfortunately very cheeky. "They wanted to go high and attacked the gods," says Plato. The gods did not put up with that, of course, and Zeus decided - I quote - "to cut people in half, as one cuts pears for canning ..." Now that the original being had been cut in two, each half went longingly in search of the other. They wrapped their arms around each other, intertwined with one another in the desire to grow together ... Since then, love for one another has been implanted in people, it leads back to the primordial being, it wants to make one out of two and heal human nature. So each of us is a fragment of a human. Everyone is forever looking for their counterpart ...
Friedhelm Franken (* 1943), German journalist and publicist
