"Marriage"

Marriage has in it less of beauty, but more of safety, than the
single life;
it hath not more ease, but less danger; it is more merry and more
sad;
it is fuller of sorrows and fuller of joys; it lies under more
burdens,
but is supported by all the strengths of love and charity;
and those burdens are delightful.
Marriage is the mother of the world, and preserves kingdoms,
and fills cities and churches, and heaven itself.
