Relationships-of all kinds-are like sand held in your hand, Held loosely,with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold on to some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost. -Kaleel Jamison, The Nibble Theory.
"ABC promised to love me forever. Then he told me about a Star Trek episode where they scientifically proved the possibility that forever might actually last only a few days." -Randy Glasbergen
"Weird love's is better than no love at all." -The Green Mile
"Better to have love and lost than never have loved at all." - Chicken Soup
"You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back." - Barbara De Angelis
"It's all right letting yourself go, as long as you can get yourself back." -Mick Jagger
"It's only in thy mind's eye that one can see rightly." - The Little Prince
I just finished reading the chapter of On Relationships from Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul and I still can't sleep. (Thanks to the stupid tea I had during dinner). These are the nice quotes by the way. And yes I'm still a teenager. For another few months that's it.
