John Joseph Powell, The Secret of Staying in Love

Dylan Thomas
“I know we're not saints or virgins or lunatics; we know all the lust and lavatory jokes, and most of the dirty people; we can catch buses and count our change and cross the roads and talk real sentences. But our innocence goes awfully deep, and our discreditable secret is that we don't know anything at all, and our horrid inner secret is that we don't care that we don't.”
Dylan Thomas

Lynsay Sands
“For me, marriage should be about partnership. How can you love someone you have to take care of like a child all the time?

Lynsay Sands, A Quick Bite

Deanna Raybourn

Leo F. Buscaglia

Leo Buscaglia, Loving Each Other

Meredith Duran
“He knew himself well enough to know his own faults. Impatient and judgmental and stubborn and often too quick to act: he would try never to crush her, never to overwhelm her or bend her to his will, but if she did not demand only the best from him, it would happen. It might happen. Possibly.”
Meredith Duran, Wicked Becomes You

Charles Martin
“What do you want in a woman, in life?'

I thought a moment...'The Rangers...we began to describe one another in a few simple words: El es muy bueno para cabalgar el rio. Meaning, 'He'll do to ride the river with.' In Texan, it means, 'I'd trust him with my life.'

I scratched my head. 'I want someone to ride the river with.”
Charles Martin, Thunder and Rain

“If we never have enough love, we have more than most.”
Kelli Russell Agodon, Dialogues with Rising Tides

Riane Eisler
“The main take-home lesson from a careful study of nomadic forager partnership societies, re-enforced by the recent Nordic experience, is that humans are capable of living in egalitarian social systems where neither dominates the other, where violence is minimized, and where prosocial cooperation and caring typify social life. This image is not a utopian fantasy but rather a set of potentials, if not inclinations, stemming from our evolutionary heritage.”
Riane Eisler, Nurturing Our Humanity: How Domination and Partnership Shape Our Brains, Lives, and Future

“It's about how we've both been the worst and we're still trying our best.”
Amanda Rosenberg, That's Mental: Painfully Funny Things That Drive Me Crazy About Being Mentally Ill

Sindiwe Magona
“CWC (Church Women Concerned) enabled us as women in that part of South Africa, to see ourselves as ordinary citizens who found themselves in decidedly far from ordinary circumstances. In truth, some of us were not even considered citizens, strictly speaking: the African had, by this time, been completely deprived of that privilege.”
Sindiwe Magona, Forced to Grow

Sindiwe Magona
“As might be surmised, CWC was multi-racial, multi-denominational, inclusive of all faiths. It had members from the Christian faith, the Islamic faith and the Jewish faith. The primary objective was to build bridges, to effect reconciliation, to attempt to live lives that projected well into the future, to a time when the laws that separated us according to skin colour would be no more.

It was a fond dream put forward as a testimony of faith. We truly believed the possibility existed for apartheid to be dismantled. Therefore, it behoved us to hasten the process by living the future now.”
Sindiwe Magona, Forced to Grow

C. JoyBell C.
“If someone else makes my partner a better person, if someone else makes my partner happier than I can, if someone else breathes life into my partner in a way I cannot; then my partner should be with that person, not with me. It seems like people fail to grasp that wanting to be with someone is totally different from needing someone to belong to you. Wanting to be with someone is totally different from needing to keep someone.”
C. JoyBell C.

Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Ilsa Madden-Mills
“Se produce ese zumbido de conexión que siempre ha estado entre nosotros, esa certeza de que ella y yo somos dos partes de un todo.”
Ilsa Madden-Mills, Spider

“Contigo. Una inocente palabra, pero, en realidad, esconde mucho más: intimidad, deseo. Es excitante y al mismo tiempo como un secreto, porque sólo a la otra persona y a ti os incumbe, sois los únicos que sabéis cuánto puede esconder.”
Cristina Prada, Los chicos malos apuestan, las chicas listas ganan

“Mis raíces han sido siempre él... Él, mi punto de equilibrio, el que daba alas a todo esto que llenaba mi pecho... Por eso mi árbol se partió en dos, se partió el día que rompí la cuerda, el día que lo aparté de mi vida para apostar por el que creía que era mi sueño, cuando mi sueño siempre fue él. [...] Si no contestó a mis mensajes no fue porque yo no le importara, sino porque quería que creciera y no lo entendí, no lo supe ver, no vi lo que pretendía y me creí mi verdad...”
Ana Forner, Miles de emociones con nuestro nombre
