Congratulations Pale Horse.
Among all the inherent properties of mankind, none is more important than that of love; and no one more clearly evinces the wisdom and benevolence of his Creator. Love, in its primary sense, to which it will be restricted in this treatise, is the mutual attraction of the two sexes. It exists in all persons, either as a sensibility or a passion. It is a sensibility when in a state of rest, or when exercised towards the whole of the opposite sex indiscriminately; but it is a passion when strongly excited and when exercised towards particular individuals. Apart from this - congratulations. Perhaps I should say something Indy
-related here but one can't always be Indy and for the sake of your wife I hope you aren't. As you seem to have the patience, I'm confident that this marriage also can live through the harder times. Although marriage is very ordinary and usual in general, for a single man marriage is an extraordinary step and what would life be if there wouldn't be something extraordinary in each of us. As i see now, this was another great opportunity for me to say more than i had to say, so for now good luck and don't be so foolish to think you wouldn't need it. And it is as truly and fundamentally a law of human nature as electricity is of material nature, - to which it bears a curious analogy. We can scarcely reason with more certainty upon. There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage. Marriage is an adventure, like going to war. When a girl marries she exchanges the attention of many men for the inattention of one.
And how did you get to be a moderator without a fedora?
