10 Quotations for the Royal Wedding by Jessica Barrah

This Saturday sees the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – and to celebrate we’ve gathered together some quotations from the literary world about the institution of marriage.

1. “It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

2. “And she’s got brains enough for two, which is the exact quantity the girl who marries you will need.”
― P.G. Wodehouse, Mostly Sally

3. “I don’t want to be married just to be married. I can’t think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can’t talk to, or worse, someone I can’t be silent with.”
― Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

4. “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

5. “By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.”
― Socrates

6. “When two people are under the influence of the most violent, most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions, they are required to swear that they will remain in that excited, abnormal, and exhausting condition continuously until death do them part.”
― George Bernard Shaw, Getting Married

7. “An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have. The older she gets, the more interested he is in her.”
― Agatha Christie

8. “To keep your marriage brimming, with love in the wedding cup, whenever you’re wrong, admit it; whenever you’re right, shut up.”
― Ogden Nash

9. “I wouldn’t want to marry anybody who was wicked, but I think I’d like it if he could be wicked and wouldn’t.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island

10. “A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you
control it.”
