Women of Wednesday: Love

"Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."  ~Dinah Craik, English novelist and poet


"Are we not like two volumes of one book?"  ~Marceline Desbordes-Valmore, French poet

"She did observe, with some dismay, that, far from conquering all, love lazily sidestepped practical problems."   ~Jean Stafford, American writer

"When a husband brings his wife flowers for no reason there's a reason." 

Molly McGee, 20th century radio character

"I married the first man I ever kissed.  When I tell this to my children, they just about throw up."  Barbara Bush, former First Lady
