Relationship Quotes That Give Us the Perfect Insight Into Love

Stephanie Perkins on relationships
Relationships are the most prized possessions anyone can ever have. They give us an insight into what it is like to be in love, to face challenges, and how to pick ourselves up when we're down.
Relationships are stepping stones for us to learn from our mistakes, take what we can as an experience, and better ourselves if we are flawed in any way. Some relationships are beautiful, and some aren't very much so. But we move forward, and stay positive, or cherish what it is we have when we find our greatest love.
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

And the person who was just a friend is... suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.

Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.

Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.

A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself -- to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.
