21 Famous Wedding Anniversary Quotes

Perhaps it is because for many of us, our marriage is that firmament on which our lives are based, wedding anniversary quotes are a poignant and eloquent reminder that in marriage we are greater than the sum of our parts. Through history, luminaries from Aristotle to Groucho Marx have had something to say about marriage and naturally wedding anniversaries.

Anniversary love quotes through the ages tend to focus on the notion of one soul ruling two bodies - that was Aristotle. It's always a surprise how history's greatest thinkers and philosphers had notions of marriage that keenly reflect our own. Perhaps it shouldn't be. It's funny I suppose, that it's always the comedians who reflect on the truth about marriage.

It's often the similarites to our own values and thinking that draw us to our life partner, yet ironically, it's those things that our lovers do that annoy us so much are what we love about them. Crazy huh? Well for those new at the marriage game, it sometimes takes a few years to realise that. I suppose that means 50th wedding anniversary quotes must be the most poignant.
