On Marriage

Let there be space in your togetherness.

Love one another, but make not the bound of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your soul.

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but each one of you be alone, even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, and the oak-tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

"The Prophet" by K. Gibran
