“We think the fire eats the wood. We are wrong. The wood reaches out to the flame. The fire licks at what the wood harbors, and the wood gives itself away to that intimacy, the manner in which we and the world meet each new day.”
Jack Gilbert, Collected Poems

Jeff Bezos

Jeff Bezos

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? A wife is supposed to be a partner, and yes partners help each other when they need it, but they are supposed to be together because they want to in my book, not because one needs the other.”
Lynsay Sands, A Quick Bite

Deanna Raybourn
“You are curious and quick, you have a deft mind, and for some unaccountable reason, people tell you things -- useful things.”

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

Leo F. Buscaglia
“....though modern Marriage is a tremendous laboratory, its members are often utterly without preparation for the partnership function. How much agony and remorse and failure could have been avoided if there had been at least some rudimentary learning before they entered the partnership....And that statement is equally valid for all relationships.”
Leo Buscaglia, Loving Each Other: The Challenge of Human Relationships

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.”

Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton, The Glimpses of the Moon

Taylor Jenkins Reid
“I know it’s not popular to say. I know everybody’s looking for some sexy marriage nowadays. But I was really happy with your father. I really loved having someone look out for me, having someone to look out for. Having someone to share my days with.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Taylor Jenkins Reid
“The chemistry between their voices—his vulnerability, her fragility—it grabs you and doesn’t let you go. With his voice deep and smooth, and her voice higher and raspier, they somehow still meld together effortlessly, like two voices that have been singing together for ages. They created a deeply heartfelt call and response—a story of this romantic and idealized future that may never come to pass.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, Daisy Jones & The Six

“Will said, "Are we partners?"
"yes sir"
"yes Will"

"Now were partners".”

“You are the minister of the Life of God. You are the access point for God’s glory to fill the earth. The knowledge of his glory fills the earth because you partner with Him and release it.”

“...we might try to assuage our loneliness and fears by sleeping with partners we don't love or respect -- sometimes men who won't even remember our names -- as we use sex addictively to fill the emotional hole. But we never walk away from sex Scott free. Sex is more personal to us than to men, and there's a reason for that. The results of preliminary research suggests that when we have orgasms, our bodies release oxytocin, the same chemical that's produced during breast-feeding, and that heightens feelings of bonding.

As [Niravi] Payne explains in The Language of Fertility, which is coauthored with Brenda Richardson, her work is based on research that validates thoughts and beliefs can affect functioning in cells, tissues and organs. In recent decades, scientists have learned that much of human perception is based not on information flowing into the brain from the external world, but on what the brain based on previous experience, expects to happen next. That means if we unconsciously believe that sex is "shameful" or something to be feared, that belief can be reflected in our reproductive organs by throwing our hormonal functioning, which regulates pregnancy, or in our immune system, which governs our ability to maintain a pregnancy, or even in our menstrual flow, which if malfunctioning can lead to fibroid tumors.

Like all feelings, sexual feelings are energy, and when energy is suppressed, it builds and burst out in destructive ways.

Clinical psychologist Darlene Powell Hopson has said she teaches her clients an invocation that in, part, she learned from fellow author Iyanla Vanzant: 'Dear God, I love you and being your child. You made me a sexual being and I want to experience closeness and fulfillment with my partner. My soul yearns for the pleasure and satisfaction of being spiritually and physically intimate with my partner....Please continue to remain with me and in me, forever.”

“Partnering with God to restore the fallen world
implies working together with Him to repair the damaged world.
We are but mere vessels in His grand design,
to bring hope and healing to all mankind.
With every step we take, with every choice we make,
we have the power to bring light to the darkest of days.
For in our hands lies the potential to create,
a world that's full of beauty, love, and grace.
So let us join hands with the Creator above,
and work tirelessly to spread compassion and love.
For it is only through our partnership with God,
that we can truly heal this broken world.”
Dr. Lucas D. Shallua

“In a review of research on relationships and mental health, researchers found that “improving relationships improves mental health.”
Your partner can help you get through tough times and provide stability in your life. Studies show that people in happy relationships have fewer depressive symptoms than those who are single, divorced, separated, widowed, or in troubled relationships.”

“A huntress needs a gentle mate, Dad explained once, a boy she can protect, and such a boy is drawn to her in turn. He loves her strength, her fierce heart and her wild beauty, and she needs his gentleness and warmth and patience, just like the sun and moon in their courtship. The huntress embodies beauty in the manner of a wild thing – a dove or a doe or even a cougar, all dusk and sinew and bright eyes – and her mate creates beauty with his hands, preparing a snug and handsome burrow for his bride and filling it with food and little gifts for her pleasure.

But you're the gentle one, I puzzled, for even as a small child I understood my parents' dispositions well. Does that make Mom a huntress?

My father laughed richly at that. No, catkin, he replied. Your mother is a witch, and I have my suspicions about your sister. They're a bit trickier to love than huntresses, and they require a very different sort of mate, but that's another story altogether.”
Mejhiren, When the Moon Fell in Love with the Sun

“Cooperation for a common cause is the engine for development in any country.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

“My partner and I fully support one another. Lifting each other up to evolve into the highest versions of ourselves. We are the best teammates.”

“It takes two to tango, but it always takes one person to ask another to dance. Don’t sit and wait.”
Hugo Macdonald, How to Live in the City

“When two sympathetic hearts meet in the marriage state, matrimony may be called a happy life. When such a wedded pair find thorns in their path, each will be eager, for the sake of the other, to tear them from the root. Where they have to mount hills, or wind a labyrinth, the most experienced will lead the way, and be a guide to his companion. Patience and love will accompany them in their journey, while melancholy and discord they leave far behind. -- Hand in hand they pass on from morning till evening, through their summer's day, till the night of age draws on, and the sleep of death overtakes the one. The other, weeping and mourning, yet looks forward to the bright region where he shall meet his still surviving partner, among trees and flowers which themselves have planted, in fields of eternal verdure.”
Inchbald Elizabeth Inchbald

“He told her he was tired and didn't want any mechanical intervention. "No breathing tubes! No shocks, and no pushing on my chest. Just let me go." He was willing to try treatments that would make him feel better (comfort care), Rebecca says, such as wound care and pain management, as well as the treatments he was already getting.
But, he said, "If they are giving it to me just to give it to me, then forget about it."
At that point, Rebecca turned to her grandmother, who would be the ultimate decision maker should her grandfather become unable to make his own choices. "Well, darling," she said, "of course I would tell the doctors to do everything possible to keep my husband alive." Rebecca was stunned. She'd just had a lovely, candid, and specific discussion with her grandfather about his wishes. Hadn't her grandmother heard what he'd said?
She then asked her grandmother to tell her what she had heard her grandfather say, and her grandmother repeated his wishes but said she loved her husband too much to let him go. "If he is with me just one more day, it would be worth it to me," she told her granddaughter. It would be worth it to her even if he were
"hooked up to machines and not able to talk to me."
Rebecca then turned back to her grandfather and asked, "Did you just hear what Grandma said?" He said he did. She asked how he felt about her going against his wishes and requesting a feeding tube, ventilator, shocks, and other treatments he had said he did not want. "Is that okay with you?" she asked in disbelief.
Her grandfather said it was. "I am ready to go, but if it helps your grandmother to feel that she did everything possible for me, even if it is because she doesn't want me to go, that is okay. She is the one who has to go on living with her decision. If this is what she wants, then this is what I want because I love her."
Rebecca realized in that moment that her grandfather's wishes were being honored; above all else, he wanted a death that his wife could live with.”
BJ Miller

“The world over, marriage is considered a form of companionship and a partnership where both parties may mutually agree to share the rights and responsibilities equally. However, in India, the male-dominated society incorrectly considers marriage as a privilege and an entitlement of men.”
Shalu Nigam

Ethan Chatagnier
“A partnership is about who takes out the garbage. The two might take turns dumping out the can. One might dump it out every time. It doesn’t work if you both wait for the other to do it. If you can manage that problem, you can figure out the rest.”
Ethan Chatagnier, Singer Distance

Phil Klay
“Everything is uncertain. Friends become enemies, health becomes sickness, wealth becomes ruin. But we two, we will create one small space of order in the chaos. I will rest on you, you on me, and we will not break. And in that small space, we will have room for human feelings, maybe cruel, maybe tender, full of arguments or never-ending kindnesses, but more important than the nature of the love is the space we create for it to exist.”
Phil Klay, Missionaries
