I love being engaged. It's not always easy, but in the end, I'm pretty over-the-moon happy.
Ever since reading this a few years ago in an anthology of seminal feminist writings, I have held on dearly to this Dora Russell quote (1925). Now that I have more time to plan the wedding of my dreams, I can once again focus on the details that will make it personalized and meaningful. I would like this quote to be in the program:
"There is nothing in life to compare with this uniting of minds and bodies in men and women who have laid aside hostility and fear and seek in love the fullest understanding of themselves and of the universe."
Nobody could put it more eloquently.
