“Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk everything, you risk even more”.
~~ Erica Jong in How to Save Your Own Life (1977)

Came across this and totally agree..
“You are beautiful…when you let friends have their space, when you believe, when you laugh, or are moved to tears, when you let it just roll right off your back, when you talk about your dreams, when you help a turtle across the road, when you try to do the right thing even when it comes out wrong, when you love.”

“Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy – in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other”.
~Jubal Harshaw Robert Heinlein in Stranger In A Strange Land
And of course I agree.. If you are jealous, there’s some insecurity in you.. How about working on it rather than poisoning your relationship.. 🙂

“By the time you swear you’re his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is Infinite, undying
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying”
~ Dorothy Parker, “Unfortunate Coincidence”

“Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists. When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.”
Hmmm.. I think most of us feel more incomplete without our cell phones and laptops than without a person.. How unfortunate..

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity”. Gilda Radner, 1946-1989
