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?

I love how she almost drops it until she smells it and that flashbulb memory hits.

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real … Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

Brian Williams reported on his daughter Allison’s new job in NBC’s live-action likely Christmas-ruiner, Peter Pan. We’ve still got a couple more months before we can appreciate the embarrassment that Peter Pan will almost certainly be, so for now let’s just enjoy the cuteness of this moment.
