"Lack nothing: be merry."
from Henry IV
"Heaven give you many, many merry days!"
from The Merry Wives of
May every day be happier than the last.
Let's drink to love, which is nothing -- unless it's divided by two.
As Shakespeare said in Romeo and Juliet,
may "a flock of blessings light upon thy back."
To the wings of love:
May they never lose a feather,
But soar up to the sky above,
And last and last forever.
Here's to this fine couple.
May their joys be as bright as the morning,
and their sorrows but shadows that fade in the sunlight of love.
down you gods, and on this couple drop a blessed crown."
from The Tempest
A health to you,
A wealth to you,
And the best that life can give to you.
May fortune still be kind to you,
And happiness be true to you,
And life be long and good to you,
Is the toast of all your friends to you.
"Marriage: A community consisting of a master, a mistress,
and two slaves - making in all, two." ~ Ambrose
To the newlyweds: May "for better or worse" be far better than worse.
