Quotes About Love Honeymoon

"If Innocent is happy, it is because he is innocent. If he can defy the conventions, it is just because he can keep the commandments. It is just because he does not want to kill but to excite to life that a pistol is still as exciting to him as it is to a schoolboy. It is just because he does not want to steal, because he does not covet his neighbours goods, that he has captured the trick (oh, how we all long for it!), the trick of coveting his own goods. It is just because he does not want to commit adultery that he achieves the romance of sex; it is just because he loves one wife that he has a hundred honeymoons." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Ended Life

"If Id been a cowboy, it mightve ended well.Somewhere on the ramble, Im sure Id have to sellMy guns along the highway. My coins to the table To make a gamblers double, Id double debts to pay.Probly shrink and slink away, It mightntve ended well.What If Id been a sailor? I think it mightve ended well.From August to MayFor a searat of man drifting through eternal blue, aboard the finest Debris.I mightve called the shanties. From daybreak to storms set, lines stay Taught, over rhythm unbroken.But, oh, theres a schism unspoken, a mighty calling of the lee.An absentminded Pirate, unaccustomed to the sea;To the land, a traitor. I think it mightntve ended well. What mightve worked for me? What mightve ended well?Soldier, to bloody sally forth through hell?Teacher of glorious stories to tell?Man of gold, or stores to sell?Lover to a gentle belle? Maybe a camel;A seashell.What mightntve been a life where it mightntve ended well?" - Author: Dylan Thomas McCall
