Best Love Quotes Ever--

Best Love Qoute Ever-- 
"Mary and I have been married for forty-seven years
 and not once have we had an argument serious enough 
to consider divorce; murder, yes, but divorce, never.” Jack Benny

 

Or how about this--
"An archeologist is the best husband any woman can have; 
the older she gets, the more interested he is in her"- Agatha Christy

Love is grand; divorce is a hundred grand.- Anonymous

 

“When women are depressed, they eat or go shopping. 

Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking.”

 
I am doing a series of 30 valentines for a gallery this February, 
highlighting some of the most beautiful words ever written.   
Obviously I can't use any of those.  

 "I sat down under his Shadow with Great Delight" 
is a  piece of poetry from the Songs of Solomon 
that I just painted into a tiny love story, entitled 'Star of Solomon."   
Although I am not sure who they principle Characters of this story are, 
Their affection is as old as the cosmos. 
This is my favorite thing I have ever painted.  
(This piece will be sold in a Silent Auction through Deseret Book)

So,  I'm collecting love thoughts,  the older the better.  I'll probably start with Abraham's immortal words, "My soul shall live because of thee"  Beat that Shakespear!
If you have any ideas,  I'd love to hear them. Long or short, comic or passionate, (even if they don't have the word love in them.) Here is your chance to be the artist- Just leave you quote in the comments,  with the author if possible.  And I will design it into something truely awesome.  (If I end up using your quote you'll win a set of  Mary Summerhays valentines.)

I'll leave you with one of my poetic favorites from Jim-  "You sound like a sad mule clomping along." 

As you can see, I need another 30.

I really like how you interpreted that quote from Song of Solomon in that painting! I'll think of some good quotes to comment on here, but for now I'll I can think of is,"As it turns out, I may have entirely made up that waltz."

I think you should paint one of Hyrum and Mary Fielding. I'm sure you could think of any number of ways to do this, but you could do a still life with lilacs for Mary and something like Hyrum's pocketwatch for him. And title it "Firm as the Pillars of Heaven." (from a blessing given to him, recorded in Lucy Mack Smith, 'History of Joseph Smith' (Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1979), p. 309. )
