Quotation of the day

"When marrying, one should ask oneself this question:
Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this woman into your old age?"
Friedrich Nietzche (1844-1900)
This is somehow true. I have known lots of couples who have ended up being bored of each other because of various reasons. Last week, I saw an old English couple at the lounge. I was sitting there doing my internet thing in the afternoon, as I watched this couple - in full 2 hours. The guy ordered a beer and the woman was having a cocktail. And they seldom talked. And they are just one of the couples I have observed in the past years.
If I live long enough to be with the man I love, I don't want to end up like those couples. I don't want to have a holiday and just end up sitting beside him without speaking a word. For now, I'll just cross the bridge when I get there.
