Stieg Larsson
“Friendship- my definition- is built on two things. Respect and trust. Both elements have to be there. And it has to be mutual. You can have respect for someone, but if you don't have trust, the friendship will crumble.”
Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Victoria Moran
“Because I was more often happy for other people, I got to spend more time being happy. And as I saw more light in everybody else, I seemed to have more myself. (250)”
Victoria Moran, Lit From Within: Tending Your Soul For Lifelong Beauty

“Allegiance, after all, has to work two ways; and one can grow weary of an allegiance which is not reciprocal.”
James Baldwin, Nobody Knows My Name

Iris Murdoch

Iris Murdoch, The Bell

Karen E. Quinones Miller

It's not about "tit for tat," it's about "I love you, too.”
Karen E. Quinones Miller

Dylan Thomas
“On No Work of Words

On no work of words now for three lean months in the bloody
Belly of the rich year and the big purse of my body
I bitterly take to task my poverty and craft:

To take to give is all, return what is hungrily given
Puffing the pounds of manna up through the dew to heaven,
The lovely gift of the gab bangs back on a blind shaft.

To lift to leave from the treasures of man is pleasing death
That will rake at last all currencies of the marked breath
And count the taken, forsaken mysteries in a bad dark.

To surrender now is to pay the expensive ogre twice.
Ancient woods of my blood, dash down to the nut of the seas
If I take to burn or return this world which is each man's work.”
Dylan Thomas, Collected Poems

Alexandra Katehakis
“Know that you get second chances so that you may change the art of your interaction, not so that others might finally treat you with the loving respect you deserve (and you do deserve loving respect).”
Alexandra Katehakis, Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence

Roberto Hogue
“Real sex is as much about reciprocity as it is exploration and if you need a reason to resent a man later on, just consider the guy who doesn’t believe in cunnilingus...”
Roberto Hogue, Real Secrets of Sex: A Women's Guide on How to Be Good in Bed

David Brin
“Reciprocal accountability, or criticism [is] the only known antidote to error.”
David Brin

Robert Wright
“Perhaps the most legitimately dispiriting thing about reciprocal altruism is that it is a misnomer. Whereas with kin selection the "goal" of our genes is to actually help another organism, with reciprocal altruism the goal is that the organism be left under the impression that we've helped; the impression alone is enough to bring the reciprocation.”
Robert Wright

Thomas Burnett Swann
“...she grasped the terrible truth that love can never be compelled, from man, from sprite, from beast; that one who loves, however she longs for requital, however long she waits, may receive in return the reverse of what she gives, the dark side of the moon.”
Thomas Burnett Swann, The Weirwoods

Robert B. Cialdini
“The truly gifted negotiator, then, is one whose initial position is exaggerated enough to allow for a series of concessions that will yield a desirable final offer from the opponent, yet is not so outlandish as to be seen as illegitimate from the start.”
Robert B. Cialdini, Influence

Jarod Kintz
“She thinks she is pursuing him. Two shes, three loves, and no reciprocation.”
Jarod Kintz, My love can only occupy one person at a time

Ray Bourhis
“If they ignore us, well . . . then, maybe we’ll just ignore them right back.”
Ray Bourhis, Revolt: The Secession of Mill Valley

Debra Ollivier
“It's not equality that counts, it's reprocity that counts. Love is not like a balance sheet. There's no such thing as double-entry accounting when it comes to love.”
Debra Ollivier, What French Women Know About Love, Sex and Other Matters of the Heart and Mind
