We have to recognise that there cannot be relationships unless there is commitment, unless there is loyalty, unless there is love, patience, persistence.
When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures bristling with prejudice and motivated by pride and vanity.
Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.
When you struggle with your partner, you are struggling with yourself. Every fault you see in them touches a denied weakness in yourself.
When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.
A friend is someone whose face you can see in the dark.
