"My legs run because of you. My feet dance because of you. My heart shall beat because of you." From an Eskimo Love Song
"There is a desire within each of us, in the deep center of ourselves that we call our heart. We were born with it, it is never completely satisfied, and it never dies. We are often unaware of it, but it is always awake. It is the human desire for love. Every person on this earth yearns to love, to be loved, to know love. Our true identity, our reason for being, is to be found in this desire... ..love is the 'why' of life: why we are functioning at all, what we want to be efficient for... I am convinced [love] is the fundamental energy of the human spirit, the fuel on which we run, the wellspring of our vitality. And grace, which is the flowing, creative activity of love itself, is what makes all goodness possible. Love should come first; it should be the beginning of and the reason for everything." - Gerald May
"But in a marriage, you are promising to care about everything, The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things,... All of it, all the time, everyday. " – From Shall We Dance
"Human relationships are meant to be like two hands folder together. They can move away from each other while still touching with the fingertips. They can create space between themselves, a little tent, a home, a safe place to be." - From Bread for the Journey
"When our mates become our best friends, we pool our spiritual resources and strengthen each other. In such a relationship, life's trials become less threatening and even the most formidable challenges become manageable." From The Committed Marriage
