Relationship quotes

by sjledet on August 3, 2011

I’ve been working on my social media connections a lot lately, and have made a handful of friends, and a ton of new acquaintances, as well as reconnected with a lot of people from my past. All this activity has left me pondering the nature of relationships and more relevantly, human nature itself as it relates to relationships. Confused yet?

In any case, here are a few relationship quotes:

There’s one sad truth in life I’ve found
While journeying east and west –
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Assumptions are the termites of relationships.  ~Henry Winkler

Someone to tell it to is one of the fundamental needs of human beings.  ~Miles Franklin

I like her because she smiles at me and means it.  ~Anonymous

Lust is easy.  Love is hard.  Like is most important.  ~Carl Reiner

Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.  ~Swedish Proverb

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.  “Pooh!” he whispered.  “Yes, Piglet?”  “Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw.  “I just wanted to be sure of you.”  ~A.A. Milne

  • Great quotes Sterling!

  • D Rotterman

    Loves a hard thing when we put a lot of rules on it.  It should pour out of us, regardless of what is thrown back at it.  Let us all strive for unconditional love.  Ego destroys so many relationships.

  • I like this quote the best:  Lust is easy.  Love is hard.  Like is most important.  ~Carl Reiner

  • “I just wanted to be sure of you.” Aww – love Piglet!
