The reason for relationships.
Types of relationships.


"Men are afraid that women will laugh at them; women are afraid that men will kill them." - Margaret Atwood

“When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him." - Albert Camus

“Stuart needs "space" and "time," as if this were physics and not a human relationship.”  - Kathryn Stockett

"You can be in love and you can be in a relationship but they're not always the same thing." From

“Relationships are like Rome -- difficult to start out, incredible during the prosperity of the 'golden age', and unbearable during the fall. Then, a new kingdom will come along and the whole process will repeat itself until you come across a kingdom like Egypt... that thrives, and continues to flourish. This kingdom will become your best friend, your soul mate, and your love.” - Helen Keller

“A man fishes for two reasons: he’s either sport fishing or fishing to eat, which means he’s either going to try to catch the biggest fish he can, take a picture of it, admire it with his buddies and toss it back to sea, or he’s going to take that fish on home, scale it, fillet it, toss it in some cornmeal, fry it up, and put it on his plate. This, I think, is a great analogy for how men seek out women.” - Steve Harvey

A Little Unexpected...

More Quotes:

“You have a very open relationship with your fans."
"Yes. We have an open relationship. Obviously they can see other authors if they want, and I can see other readers.”― Neil Gaiman

“When two people relate to each other authentically and humanly, God is the electricity that surges between them.” - Martin Buber

“But many of us seek community solely to escape the fear of being alone. Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.” - Bell Hooks
