keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

I can't go back to yesterday -
because I was a different person then.

The success of love is in the loving -

Of course it is natural in love
to want the best for the other person,
but whether it turns out that way or not
does not determine the value of what we have done.

when you can't let go.

Your job application, your book proposal,

behind you in the supermarket checkout line
is occasionally going to think that you are doing it all wrong.
Don't take it personally.

relating to each other, but not tied in any relationship.

but never even in their dreams thinking of dominating,
thinking of enslaving the other person.
- Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh)

to reconcile himself to the idea that
after all God will not help him

What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman
in the midst of this world,

and if you don't like yourself,
you're always with somebody you don't like.

Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being.
With freedom comes responsibility.
For the person who is unwilling to grow up,
the person who does not want to carry is own weight,
this is a frightening prospect.

Important ideas can come from unexpected places.
We tend to label people - Genius, Idiot,
Socialist, Regressive, Wingnut, Revolutionary, Terrorist.
But it is helpful to remind ourselves to be open
to good ideas - whatever their source.
It is equally important to avoid accepting any idea
merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

For everything observed or experienced,
each of us creates a "story" - not sometimes, but always.
A "story" is the fiction a person tells themselves
about what has happened or is happening.

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone
who is more deserving of your
love and affection than you are yourself,

deserve your love and affection.

I think that is a much greater hunger,
a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.

until you consider things from his point of view.

At the beginning of a relationship
we are attracted to the other person because
we think they are sexy, smart, funny -
whatever it is that we find appealing.
But very quickly, the focus of the relationship
turns to whether we feel appreciated.
If we don't feel appreciated, we don't feel loved.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships -
the ones that last -
are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.
You know, one day you look at the person
and you see something more than you did the night before.
Like a switch has been flicked somewhere.
And the person who was just a friend is...
suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.
- Dana Scully

The person who says it cannot be done
should not interrupt the person who is doing it.

The moment there is suspicion about a person's motives,
everything he does becomes tainted.

It's so great to find that one special person
you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

If there is any one secret of success,
it lies in the ability to get
the other person's point of view

as well as from your own.

is not the person I am today.

Nurturing is not complex.
It's simply being tuned in to the thing or person before you
and offering small gestures toward what it needs at that time.
