"Love is - seeking to make another person happy"
"Marriage is the most natural state of man, and... the state in which you will find solid happiness"
"There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it"
"They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world. Someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for"
"How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being"
"The highest happiness on earth is marriage"
William Lyon Phelps
