    Marriage must embody honesty, integrity  and possess openness.  To comprehend the value of willingness to recognize and acknowledge the other as an individual; to honor one another, to accept one another, and to nurture the each other’s hopes and dreams, and most especially remain supportive and provide encouragement when the other is discouraged.
    This reminded me of something that seems to have been a major theme in my life over the last year which I have shared in DK before but which always bears remembering:
    “Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue to exist, a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.”  

       ~ Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters.

    "The fears of one class of men are not the measure of the rights of another." ~ George Bancroft (1800-1891)
