Most relationships fail not because of absence of love. Love is always present. It's just that one loves too much and the other loves too little.
Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. ~ Ann Landers
You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity. ~ Epicurus
Truth is, I'll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour. ~ Tom Hanks
Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.' Mature love says 'I need you because I love you.' ~ Erich Fromm
