“I’ve been in love before. It’s like a narcotic. At first it brings the euphoria of complete surrender. The next day, you want more. You’re not addicted yet, but you like the sensation, and you think you can still control things. You think about the person you love for two minutes, and forget them for three hours.
But then you get used to that person, and you begin to be completely dependent on them. Now you think about him for three hours and forget about him for two minutes. If he’s not there you feel like an addict who can’t get a fix. And just as addicts steal and humiliate themselves to get what they need, you’re willing to do anything for love.” — Paulo Coelho
“When you lose somebody, you think you’ve lost the
whole world as well. But that’s not the way things
turn out in the end. Eventually, you pick yourself up
and look out the window and once you do, you see
everything that was there before the world ended is
out there, still. There are the same apple trees,
and the same song birds. And over our heads,
the same very sky that shines like heaven.
So far above us, that we can never hope to reach such heights.
Too many people grow up. That’s the real trouble with the world,
too many people grow up. They forget.
They don’t remember what it’s like to be twelve years old.
They patronize, they treat children as inferiors. Well, I won’t do that.
” — Walt Disney
“Good relationships balance over time. This means that at any particular point in time, the relationship may appear quite unbalanced: One partner may be more nurturing; one may be more needy; one may be providing all the financial support, etc. But if both partners are loving, understanding, giving, dedicated and flexible, then the relationship can handle all kinds of ups and downs, and still be strong, exciting and, yes, romantic. The best relationships are well balanced. Not a delicate balance; not a static balance- but a dynamic ever-changing balance.” — Gregory Godek
