Anthony Robbins

A quote by Alain de Botton.

“Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and finding that that’s OK with them.”
Alain de Botton

“When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising.
This can go on and on – series polygamy – until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment.
Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.”
Tom Robbins

Ernest Hemingway

“First and foremost, self-love, and then give love away.”

We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“Love doesn’t make the world go around. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”
Franklin P. Jones
