“if one day you feel like crying...
call me
I don't promise that
I will make you laugh

But I can cry with you.

If one day you want to run away
Don't be afraid to call me.
I don't promise to ask you to stop,

But I can run with you.

If one day you don't want to listen to anyone
call me
i promise to be there for you
but i also promise to remain quiet

But...
If one day you call
and there is no answer...
come fast to see me..

Perhaps I need you.”
Robert J. Lavery

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Flattery does not encourage the perfect flow of love in the vein of your relationship. Be genuine and speak out what you feel for each other without hiding the painful truth.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Søren Kierkegaard
“A human being is spirit. But what is spirit? Spirit is the self. But what is the self? The self is a relation that relates itself to itself or is the relation's relating itself to itself in the relation; the self is not the relation but is the relation's relating itself to itself. A human being is a synthesis of the infinite and the finite, of the temporal and the eternal, of freedom and necessity, in short, a synthesis. A synthesis is a relation between two. Considered in this way a human being is still not a self.... In the relation between two, the relation is the third as a negative unity, and the two relate to the relation and in the relation to the relation; thus under the qualification of the psychical the relation between the psychical and the physical is a relation. If, however, the relation relates itself to itself, this relation is the positive third, and this is the self.”
Søren Kierkegaard, The Sickness Unto Death: A Christian Psychological Exposition for Upbuilding and Awakening

Criss Jami
“In a general sense, I admit to valuing the worldviews of men under the age of 40 and women over the age of 30.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Christos Yannaras
“To share out your soul freely, that is what metanoia (a change of mind, or repentance)really refers to: a mental product of love. A change of mind, or love for the undemonstrable. And you throw off every conceptual cloak of self-defense, you give up the fleshly resistance of your ego. Repentance has nothing to do with self-regarding sorrow for legal transgressions. It is an ecstatic erotic self-emptying. A change of mind about the mode of thinking and being.”
Christos Yannaras, Variations on the Song of Songs

Aman Jassal
“There are moments in relationship when you didn't speak, you didn't have to; but you talked a lot.”
Aman Jassal, Rainbow - the shades of love

Criss Jami
“Discernment is the son of good judgment and the father of self-control. When mixed with an already clear conscience, the ability to read the true motives of a critic keeps one's conscience both clear and at ease.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Ravindra Shukla
“She could afford anything, she could give anything, but she could not share a moment of her life with anybody. She
was a beautiful and a glamorous diamond with an astronomical price tag, but to a crude reality — she was still a stone, a living stone. Nothing else but a stone in an aesthetic sense.”
Ravindra Shukla, A Maverick Heart: Between Love and Life

“The disadvantage of not being together at same place, not meeting each other personally, not able to talk with each other eye into eye, not able to feel each others touch; makes it difficult for a Long Distance Relationship to work.”
Abhijeet Sawant

Holly Goldberg Sloan
“Connectedness. One thing leads to another. Often in unexpected ways.”
Holly Goldberg Sloan, Counting by 7s

Marilyn Manson
“My grandfather had been the ugliest, darkest, foulest, most depraved figure of my childhood, more beast than human, and I had grown up to be him, locked in the basement with my secrets as the rest of the family reveled in the petty and ordinary upstairs. Down there, I saw my black, ancient, ineluctable core exposed, like a crab forced out of its shell--dirty, vulnerable, and obscene. For the first time in my life, I was truly alone.”
Marilyn Manson, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell

Criss Jami
“Excitement is a crossroad which runs in all directions. No man lacks personality; he just never connected with you at the intersection.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“The best relationship is not one that brings together perfect partners, but rather one in which the partners learn to live with the differences, imperfections and objections of one another, and seek to appreciate the good qualities that make this relationship worth building on in order to survive better together.”
Nabil N. Jamal

Lars Fredrik Händler Svendsen
“We spontaneously relate to ourselves and the world by means of the technical object.”
Lars Fr. H. Svendsen, A Philosophy of Boredom

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”
Suman Jyoty Thera

Arnold Hauser
“For the artists the humanists were the guarantors of their intellectual status, and the humanists themselves recognized the value of art as a mean of propaganda for the ideas on which their own intellectual supremacy is based.”
Arnold Hauser, The Social History of Art: Volume 2: Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque

Lailah Gifty Akita
“A friend is a family.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

“Your level of knowledge will determine the level at which God relates with you.”
Sunday Adelaja, The Mountain of Ignorance

“God can only relate with us based on our level of knowledge.”
Sunday Adelaja, The Mountain of Ignorance

“If God can only relate with us based on our level of knowledge that means God is limited to our ignorance.”
Sunday Adelaja, The Mountain of Ignorance

Mitch Albom
“And slowly a discussion begins - as Morrie has wanted all along - about the effect of silence on human relations.
Why are we embarrassed by silence? What comfort do we find in all the noise?”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

“There will be things I won't tell you ever ,
Then there will be things that you won't ever listen.

Then...”
Ratish Edwards

“Life is absolutely a game, but technically there is no winner or looser. Because there is no universally established rule for the game. Every player defines the rules as the individual prefers. Therefore, most of the times you are playing with the rules of others, which you are not even familiar with. Such game [apparently] has determined the distinction between winners and losers, not according to the individual's own abilities, but based on how a person satisfies other players and their expectations. More alienated from one's self means greater chance and closer to be called a winner, and more authentic if a person is more will be forced toward the loser title.”
Kambiz Shabankare

Georges Canguilhem
“Il n'y a pas de trouble pathologique en soi, l'anormal ne peut être apprécié que dans une relation.”
Georges Canguilhem, The Normal and the Pathological

Georges Canguilhem
“Chaos et âge d'or sont les termes mythiques de la relation normative fondamentale, termes en relation telle qu'aucun des deux ne peut s'empêcher de virer à l'autre. Le chaos a pour rôle d'appeler, de provoquer son interruption et de devenir un ordre. Inversement, l'ordre de l'âge d'or ne peut durer, car la régularité sauvage est médiocrité ; les satisfactions y sont modestes – aurea mediocritas – parce qu'elles ne sont pas une victoire remportée sur l'obstacle de la mesure.”
Georges Canguilhem, The Normal and the Pathological

John Steinbeck
“... people are interested only in themselves. If a story is not about the hearer he will not listen. And I here make a rule – a great and lasting story is about everyone or it will not last. The strange and foreign is not interesting – only the deeply personal and familiar.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Allen Tate
“We who get plenty to eat and get it
Advertising the starvation of others
Understand everything not including
Ourselves: We have enough to eat.
[...]
Everybody but us is an example of capitalism.”
Allen Tate

Friedrich Nietzsche
“L'un va chez son prochain parce qu'il se cherche, l'autre parce qu'il voudrait s'oublier. Votre mauvais amour de vous-même fait de votre solitude une prison.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Ainsi parlait Zarathoustra / Crépuscule des idoles / Ecce homo
