We don’t develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It’s a choice you make – not just on your wedding day, but over and over again – and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.
If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself.
The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.
Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.
You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
We need to find the courage to say no to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Difficult times always create opportunities for you to experience more love in your life.
Love’s greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.
The moment in between what you once were, and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place.
Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible – it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
When you make a commitment to a relationship, you invest your attention and energy in it more profoundly because you now experience ownership of that relationship.
Only when your consciousness is totally focused on the moment you are in can you receive whatever gift, lesson, or delight that moment has to offer.
The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present.
No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning.
A man’s brain has a more difficult time shifting from thinking to feeling than a women’s brain does.
In order to experience everyday spirituality, we need to remember that we are spiritual beings spending some time in a human body.
I just want to get a Ph.D. in love.
No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.
Marriage is not a noun; it’s a verb. It isn’t something you get. It’s something you do. It’s the way you love your partner every day.
Men aren’t the way they are because they want to drive women crazy; they’ve been trained to be that way for thousands of years. And that training makes it very difficult for men to be intimate.
Men are just as sensitive, and in some ways more sensitive, than women are.
What allows us, as human beings, to psychologically survive life on earth, with all of its pain, drama, and challenges, is a sense of purpose and meaning.
Love is a choice you make from moment to moment.
