  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Quotes 205. Today we have another one by

  • Ben Franklin or Benjamin Franklin. And like I've said in many videos I've done

  • a lot by him already. So if you like this one go back and check some of the

  • previous ones. He always has good quotes and he always has something good to say.

  • All right. Let's look at today's quote. Today's quote is ' Keep your eyes wide

  • open before marriage and half shot afterwards. " Okay. It's actually a little

  • humorous at the same time. Let's continue with the note here. With the first part

  • of this quote Ben Franklin he's warning you to be very careful who you choose

  • for a marriage partner. It is supposed to be a lifetime commitment. So you better

  • make the right choice. So you had better choose wisely. Keep in mind the term

  • marriage material. You know does that person have the qualities that's

  • suitable for a husband or wife. Okay. Let's go on. Does this person have the

  • qualities you want in spouse ? Does he or she have the qualities to deal with

  • difficult times that we all sooner or later face in a marriage ? Okay good, and

  • the second part of the quote is advising you to overlook or not let small or

  • trivial annoyances become a big problem in your marriage. Nobody is perfect. You

  • won't get a perfect person. So there will always be some, at least there will be

  • some minor issues. If there's some minor issues don't pick on them. Don't nag on

  • them. That's why you know keep your eyes half shut pretend you don't see them. Let

  • minor things go pretend you don't see them.You know, just go on. Allow enough

  • freedom and for a marriage to go smoothly. Basically

  • that's what he's trying to let you know with this quote. It's very good quote.

  • Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
