For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow

"May the joy you share today be just the beginning of a lifetime of
happiness and fulfilment"
"May you never forget what is worth remembering and never remember what
is best forgotten"
