This Friday is my 5th anniversary, so in honor of my terrific husband, the next few quotes will be things that remind me of him, for one reason or other. This first one I found back when we were doing our brief pre-marital counseling. I love every word of it.
“The goal of our life should not be to find joy in marriage, but to bring more love and truth into the world. We marry to assist each other in this task. The most selfish and hateful life of all is that of two beings who unite in order to enjoy life. The highest calling is that of the man who has dedicated his life to serving God and doing good, and who unites with a woman in order to further that purpose.”
– Leo Tolstoy
