Every age, every culture, every custom and tradition has its own character, its own weakness and its own strength, its beauties and cruelties; it accepts certain sufferings as matters of course, puts up patiently with certain evils. Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap.

It cannot heal ruptured relationships, or build meaning into a life that has none. •Richard M DeVos Without relationships, no matter how much wealth, fame, power, prestige and seeming success by the standards and opinions of the world one has, happiness will constantly eluded him. •Sidney Malwed Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust and hostility to evaporate. •Albert Schweitzer The easiest kind of relationship is with ten thousand people, the hardest is with one. •Joan Baez For me, the highest level of sexual excitement is in a monogamous relationship. •Warren Beatty The key to any good relationship, on-screen and off, is communication, respect, and I guess you have to like the way the other person smells -- and he smelled real nice. •Sandra Bullock My attachment has neither the blindness of the beginning, nor the microscopic accuracy of the close of such liaisons. •Lord Byron In the mythic schema of all relations between men and women, man proposes, and woman is disposed of. •Angela Carter I know for me the subject of how to be in a relationship is precious and complicated and challenging.
