Just felt like sharing a few wonderful quotations on intimate relationships. They relate timeless universal wisdom in different ways:

Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed ~Albert Einstein 
Albert Einstein and his second wife

Einstein and his second wife Elsa Löwenthal who was also his cousin.

 

The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them ~Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton – Mystic Catholic writer, poet, social activist, and student of comparative religion.

 

If you love your honey; and he’s being a real pain. Change your state of mind, and he’ll be your honey who is trying to get a message across. And you can speak to the message instead of getting reactive. ~Helen Palmer
