Real love makes you more of who you really are. Fake love intoxicates you and makes you less than you really are, impairs your consciousness. That's their main differences.

Montalk

Love is shown in your deeds, not in your words.

Fr. Jerome Cummings

It is only when we no longer compulsively need someone that we can have a real relationship with them.

Anthony Storr

Most people enter into relationships with an eye toward what they can get out of them, rather than what they can put into them.

The purpose of a relationship is to decide what part of yourself you'd like to see "show up," not what part of another you can capture and hold.

The purpose of a relationship is not to have another who might complete you; but to have another with whom you might share your completeness.

God from Conversations with God (Book 1) through Neale Donald Walsch (adapted)

You are complete. You can share yourself with others and enjoy their company, but if they leave for whatever reason, you will be OK because you have always been everything you need.

Duane Alan Hahn

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves, without any insistence that they satisfy you.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

The two words ‘love’ and ‘peace’ mean the same in our world as in your world but the vibration (or feeling) is experienced differently. It gives you peace, with peace you can then love, and love is necessary for the evolution of all the beings on this planet. It is also necessary for raising the level of consciousness and the collective consciousness of this universe.

The Council of Nine (Tom) from The Only Planet of Choice by Phyllis V. Schlemmer

It doesn't matter what the other is being, doing, having, saying, wanting, demanding. It doesn't matter what the other is thinking, expecting, planning. It only matters what you are being in relationship to that.

The most loving person is the person who is Self-centered.

God from Conversations with God (Book 1) through Neale Donald Walsch (adapted)

Well-ordered self-love is right and natural.

St. Thomas Aquinas

You will find, as you look back upon your life, that the moments when you really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.

Henry Drummond

The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're still alive.

Orlando A. Battista

Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness, speak cheering words while their ears can hear, and while their hearts can be thrilled and made happier by them.

Williams Childs

The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.

Anthony Robbins

For many people, it seems sex is the main motivation for doing anything. If they're in a band, it's not about making uplifting music, it's about getting as much sex as possible. If they attempt to become rich, it's not because they want more control over their own lives and want to give millions of dollars to their favorite charities, it's because they want the best sex money can buy. People even judge their own lives and the lives of others by how much sex they've gotten lately. If prowling for sex in bars and other places is at the top of your list of what is most important in life, you might want to reexamine your priorities.

A seemingly thoughtless life on automatic crotch cruise control seems like such a waste when there are so many things we can do to help make this world a better place for everyone. There's nothing wrong with sex, but humans need to break out of the primitive mind-set that the main goal for doing anything is to obtain sex if each one of us wants to personally evolve to another level where we do things because it's the right thing to do for ourselves and the greater good.

Duane Alan Hahn

Throw the water of reason and control on the flames of desire and breathe in the smoke of ache that oddly comforts.

Duane Alan Hahn

If I hold you, I can't behold you. Sometimes love is better at a distance.

Duane Alan Hahn

Assumptions are the termites of relationships.

Henry Winkler

You can't put a price tag on love, but you can on all its accessories.

Melanie Clark

Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old.

John Ciardi

Relationships based on obligation lack dignity.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

People love others not for who they are, but for how they make them feel.

Irwin Federman

Nick: Yeah, II'm sorry, there seems to be a really fine line here between, uh peddling marriage and peddling flesh.

Chloe Daniels: When is marriage anything else?

Brass: Nick is, uh…he's an old-fashioned guy.

Chloe Daniels: Really? (laughs) Well, what do you think engagement rings are? Just proof that a man can pay for his bride. Look, a caveman would go steal a woman from a neighboring clan. He'd tie her hands and her feet 'till she wouldn't run away. Once she'd stay put, he would only tie her finger, just to remind her.

Brass: So you're a romantic.

Chloe Daniels: Marriage is not romance. It's a contract with the state. It's an investment in your future. I'm not making it about money, it just is.

From the TV show "CSI" (Nesting Dolls)

For all those men who say, "why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free," here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize its not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage.

Unknown

I don't like sausage and I don't like fish, but I won't mind if you blow me a kiss.

Duane Alan Hahn [2014y_02m_05d]

Propinquity

Opinion section by Duane Alan Hahn

The Propinquity Effect

Being near someone repeatedly can make a person think that he or she has fallen in love, but it's just an illusion. Propinquity is why a husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend will cheat with someone at work, why a husband will cheat with a nanny or housekeeper, and why an actor will sleep with a co-star or a director. Propinquity is a powerful force, but we must find ways to short-circuit the familiarity and exposure if we wish to be free.

Make a great big mess with togetherness. Togetherness! The people trap.

Instead of getting a dingy-looking real tattoo that you'll regret in the future and end up spending thousands of dollars to have removed, how about getting a temporary tattoo instead? Temporary tattoos are more colorful, they last up to 5 days and there's no regret. Try different ones or design your own. You could even wear a different temporary tattoo for every special occasion and holiday if you wanted to.
