HONEYMOON QUOTES

quotations about honeymoons

Far from the madding crowd is a mistake on a honeymoon.... Solitude! Wherever you are, if you're on a honeymoon, you'll get quite as much solitude as is good for you every twenty-four hours. Constant change and distraction -- that's what wants arranging for. Solitude will arrange itself.

ARNOLD BENNETT, The Honeymoon

A love affair should always be a honeymoon. And the only way to make sure of that is to keep changing the man; for the same man can never keep it up.

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW, Too True to Be Good

The honeymoon is the only period when a woman isn't trying to reform her husband.

EVAN ESAR, 20,000 Quips & Quotes

Honeymoon lasts not nowadays above a fortnight.

SAMUEL RICHARDSON, Clarissa

A honeymoon is a short period of doting between dating and debting.

RAY BANDY, Little Giant Encyclopedia of Wedding Toasts

There seems to be an unwritten law that going on honeymoons is like joining the Masons ... secret and mysterious, and the fewer questions asked the less embarrassing for everybody.

MARTHA BYRD PORTER, Straight Down a Crooked Lane

Some of the most memorable honeymoons have been spent entirely in a hotel room.

K.C. DAVID, The Complete Guide to Gay and Lesbian Weddings

We are sitting on our honeymoon bed in the honeymoon suite. We are in a state of honeymoon, in our honey month. These words are so sweet: honey, moon. This bed is so big, we could live on it. We have been happily marooned -- honey marooned -- on this bed for days.

KELLY LINK, Stranger Things Happen

Weddings take months to organize, and there are fittings and invitation lists and old aunts being coy about the honeymoon, and having to have somebody's perfectly hideous cousin for a bridesmaid. And then hundreds of appalling wedding presents. Toast-racks and Japanese vases and pictures that never, in a million years, would you want to hang on the wall. And you spend all your time writing insincere thank-you letters with your fingers crossed, and everybody gets tense and miserable and there's lots of bursting into tears. The miracle is that anybody ever gets married at all, but I bet most girls have nervous breakdowns on their honeymoons.

ROSAMUNDE PILCHER, Coming Home

I do want an expensive honeymoon. Not because I'm extravagant, but because a honeymoon is a solemn, important thing ... a symbol. And it ought to be done -- well, adequately.

ARNOLD BENNETT, The Honeymoon

Maybe honeymoons are God's anesthesia. Like the "laughing gas" used by dentists, perhaps honeymoons are designed to protect us from a bit of the pain and fear involved in doing something that, while scary and uncomfortable, is for our own good in the long run.

SUE PATTON THOELE, Courage to Be a Stepmom

Nine out of ten honeymoons are flowerless. A ghastly disappointment.

BERTA RUCK, Mock Honeymoon

A husband may forget where he went on his honeymoon, but he never forgets why.

EVAN ESAR, 20,000 Quips & Quotes

Honeymoons don't last forever.

LAILA HALABY, West of the Jordan

In times past, honeymoons may have lasted longer and involved little expense, the outside world was more definitely shut out, and the partners devoted their attention to each other. Restoring this practice might help get marriages off to a better start by supporting partners' development of a secure couple bond and a strong boundary around their relationship.

SHEILA A. SHARPE, The Ways We Love

Women have to be careful to not wear out their husbands on their honeymoons, or they get so weak that they can't go to work!

VICTOR VILLASENOR, Thirteen Senses

Your honeymoon tells the world--and maybe you--who you are.

GINGER STRAND, Inventing Niagara
