Hopeless Romantic

Someday, when we're old and gray, I can only hope that the Sailor looks at me like this:

"There would be no point in saying that she looked to me more beautiful than she did on our wedding day, but because I have grown older and have, I think, a greater depth of feeling, and because I could see in her face that night both youth and age, both her devotion to the young woman that she had been and the positions that she had yielded graciously to time, I think I have never been so deeply moved." John Cheever
