Marriage is to love. And love is a decision, not a feeling. Love is a donation. The measure of love is the capacity for sacrifice. The measure of love is to love without measure. Who does not know how to die, does not know how to love. Do not forget: love is a reward in itself. To love is to seek the good of the other: the greater the good, the greater the love.
