OK, NPRBooks Brain Trust, we need your help. We’ve got some upcoming weddings here and we’d like to know: Can you think of great book passages to use as readings during a wedding ceremony? Here’s one to get you started, from George Eliot’s Adam Bede:

What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life — to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?

What else is out there?

Remember that time Jarvis, King Robert Baratheon, The Joker and Wash hung out.

And my longheld love of this movie’s cast has been fully justified.

Loving A Knight’s Tale never requires justification, because it is and has always been a 100% valid life choice. It is a perfect movie.

seconded

I love this movie so hard.

I didn’t know how to explain to my cousin’s small child that I was going to see a play, so I said, “I’m going to watch some people tell a story,” and told her when she’s a bit older, she can go watch people tell stories too.

I made a series of Calming Bunnies (based off of the Calming Manatee meme) for my friend Gab, who isn’t a huge fan of manatees!

We can always use more bunnies, I think.

This is beautiful and perfect.

I find the manatee version very helpful also, but bunnies are much fuzzier, sooooo…

"'To write down one's impressions of Hamlet as one reads it year after year,' wrote Virginia Woolf, 'would be virtually to record one's own autobiography, for as we know more of life, so Shakespeare comments upon what we know.'"
