Quote by John Lyly
Marriages are made in heaven and consummated on Earth.
This quote suggests that the idea of marriage, the union of two individuals, is predetermined or blessed by a higher power. It implies that the pairing of two souls is a divine arrangement, happening in the celestial realm. However, the actual fulfillment and realization of this union occur on Earth, where couples come together to build their lives and relationships. The quote emphasizes the spiritual or cosmic aspect behind the concept of marriage while acknowledging that its physical manifestation and experiences take place in the earthly realm.
And soon afterwards this manuscript will appear, my final book... There will be outrage and disgust and people will turn on me at the last, they will hate me, my reputation will for ever be destroyed, my punishment earned, self-inflicted like this gunshot wound, and the world will finally know that I was the greatest feather man of them all.
