The purpose of an intimate relationship is not that it be a place where we can hide from our weaknesses, but rather where we can safely let them go.

Only then can we know an enchantment that lasts.”

Intimacy is to love what concentration is to work: a simultaneous drawing together to attention and release of energy.”
