And that's one to grow on

Every so often I like to pick a topic and read some quotes about it. Since my life currently revolves around relationships - new, old, changing - I thought I'd share a few quotes I found on The Quote Garden.


On relationships:

Having someone wonder where you are when you don't come home at night is a very old human need. ~Margaret Mead

Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859

Assumptions are the termites of relationships. ~Henry Winkler [Note to self - The Fonz is very wise. Remember these words when the tape of doubt starts playing.]

I like her because she smiles at me and means it. ~Tas Soft Wind

Someone to tell it to is one of the fundamental needs of human beings. ~Miles Franklin

Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you. They are not perfect but are always perfect for you. ~Author Unknown


On Friendship:

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. ~Albert Schweitzer

True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable. ~Dave Tyson Gentry

A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you are half-cracked. ~Author Unknown

She is a friend of mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order. It's good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind. ~Toni Morrison, Beloved

True friends stab you in the front. ~Oscar Wilde

A friend can tell you things you don't want to tell yourself. ~Frances Ward Weller


Apropos of my marriage -


Sometimes you have to get to know someone really well to realize you're really strangers. ~Mary Tyler Moore

People change and forget to tell each other. ~Lillian Hellman

The best way to mend a broken heart is time and girlfriends. ~Gwyneth Paltrow

“The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.”
Emil Ludwig
