Sometimes a quote can cut straight to our core and wake us up to profound realizations about ourselves. My favorites are the ones that let us relate to others with more ease, love and freedom. Today I’m sharing my favorite relationship quotes with you and hope they offer endless inspiration. Enjoy!
In your borrowed body, a precious gift is hidden.
Search for it not only when in pain
Learn to love before death claims you.
We need to be able to enter the body or the erotic space of another,
without the terror that we will be swallowed and lose ourselves.
– Esther Perel
Deprived of enigma, intimacy becomes cruel when it excludes any possibility of discovery. Where there is nothing left to hide, there is nothing left to seek.
-– Esther Perel, Mating in Captivity
Sex is a state of grace,
In a cage it can’t take place.
Break the cage then, start in and try.
Anger is meant to be respected. Why? Because Anger is a map. Anger shows us what our boundaries are. Anger shows us where we want to go. It lets us see where we’ve been and lets us know when we haven’t liked it. Anger is a sign of health.
It will always tell us when we’ve betrayed ourselves.
– Julia Cameron
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there.
Relationships are the hospital for the soul. – Marianne Williamson
When you meet anyone, remember it’s a holy encounter. As you see him, you will see yourself. As you treat him, you will treat yourself. As you think of him, you will think of yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself or lose yourself.
– John O’Donohue
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
― C.G Jung
While it may seem appropriate to assign blame to another, this choice not only creates separation between ourselves and those around us, it is also a choice that leaves us with a missed opportunity to access valuable insight for our healing and spiritual growth
– Deepak Chopra
When sex is of the ego it is a substitute for communication.
As with lovers:
When it’s right ,you can’t say
Who is kissing whom.
