Relationship 101: A Dozen Quotes

Don't rush into any kind of relationship. Work on yourself. Feel yourself, experience yourself and love yourself. Do this first and you will soon attract that special loving other.

            Russ Von Hoelscher

The more you let yourself go, the less others let you go.

            Friedrich Nietzsche

An intimate relationship does not banish loneliness. Only when we are comfortable with who we are can we truly function independently in a healthy way, can we truly function within a relationship. Two halves do not make a whole when it comes to a healthy relationship: it takes two wholes.
            Patricia Fry

Almost all of our sorrows spring out of our relations with other people.

            Arthur Schopenhauer

I like her because she smiles at me and means it.

            Tas Soft Wind

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

Don't smother each other. No one can grow in the shade.

            Leo Buscaglia

Be the kind of person you would like to be with. Some people come into our lives, make footprints on our hearts and we are never the same. People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.
            Joseph F. Newton

People change and forget to tell each other.

            Lillian Hellman

Guys are like dogs. They keep comin' back. Ladies are like cats. Yell at a cat one time, they're gone.
            Lenny Bruce

Problems in relationship occur because each person is concentrating on what is missing in the other person.
            Wayne Dyer

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
