I can't think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can't talk to, or worse, someone I can't be silent with.” ― Mary Ann Shaffer, “When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.” ― Kahlil Gibran, “It’s probably not just by chance that I’m alone.
It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he’s terribly strong.
Don’t be with someone who doesn’t do what they say they’re going to do.
If he’s choosing not to make a simple effort that would put you at ease and bring harmony to a recurring fight, then he doesn’t respect your feelings and needs.
And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
