Some think love can be measured by the amount of butterflies in their tummy. Others think love can be measured in bunches of flowers, or by using the words 'for ever.' But love can only truly be measured by actions. It can be a small thing, such as peeling an orange for a person you love because you know they don't like doing it.

It is always the same: women bedeck themselves with jewels and furs, and men with wit and quotations.

What does it matter how many lovers you have if none of them gives you the universe?

Women won't let me stay single and I won't let me stay married.

People are so fearful about opening themselves up. All you want to do is to be able to connect with other people. When you connect with other people, you connect with something in yourself. It makes you feel happy. And yet it's so scary - it makes people feel vulnerable and unsafe.

My husband and I have known each other since kindergarten. I had a crush on him in school, but we never dated. Then we saw each other again after high school, and there was something instantly familiar about him. I'm a very shy person and was very closed off. But he allowed me to be myself. And there's a safety in that.

Everything is expressed through relationship. Colour can exist only through other colours, dimension through other dimensions, position through other positions that oppose them. That is why I regard relationship as the principal thing.

We have to bring children into a new relationship to food that connects them to culture and agriculture.

I don't think it ever works to tell people what they can't eat. They can do it for so long, and then they fall off. You have to bring them into a new relationship with food.

It's hard to come into a new relationship with food unless you're engaged in an interactive way at an early age; it's hard to change your values.

I feel it is an obligation to help people understand the relation of food to agriculture and the relationship of food to culture.

The family is very important. They make me feel good always because if I won, when I started to be famous, the relationship never changed with my friends and family.

This may be a bit of a broad statement, but I don't think there's anyone that I've met that I haven't created a bit of a deep relationship with.

If your entire relationship with money is devoid of fun, money becomes something you fear and loathe rather than something to celebrate and enjoy.

If I go into a relationship with an artist, which at most is going to last five years, we have a 100-page contract covering every eventuality. Whereas with marriage you go into it with no contract, with laws that date back hundreds of years, and I don't think that's right.

I think if you have any desire to be a leading man or to really carry some of these stories, there's this relationship that has to be cultivated with an audience. People have to be able to say your name.

We must each adopt as much responsibility as possible for individual life, society and the world.

What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life - to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?

I am looking for a character that connects to me on some level. It has to be about something, it has to have depth to it and it has to be about something. The story of the character and their relationship with the people and places around them appeal to me and are what I look for.

You know, I think that President Obama is a person who has a great relationship with a number of people. Colin Powell does, too. I think Colin Powell is a fine American, a great leader and sees things in President Obama that he agrees with. He's entitled to have his opinion.

The relationship between press and politician - protected by the Constitution and designed to be happily adversarial - becomes sour, raw and confrontational.

My relationship with the journalists who covered the campaign was complicated. I often hid from the critical eye of their cameras and their omnipresent digital recorders, wary of the critique implicit in every captured moment. But I also grew to respect and understand their passion for their work, their love for the journey we were sharing.

We saw what happened in Jimmy Carter's administration. President Carter was a good man with the best of intentions. But he came to Washington without a good working relationship with Democratic members of Congress, which played a big part in his administration's problems.

I feel an intense intimacy with those who have this loathing interest in me. Further than this, I know what they mean, I sympathize with them, I understand them. There should be a name (as poetic as love) for this relationship between loather and loathed it is of the closest and more full of passion than incest.

Many argue; not many converse.

Comparing yourself to others is a dangerous game. Either you feel like shit or grow arrogant. Better to compare yourself to your old self and no one else.

What kills peer relationships is hierarchy. Since hierarchy emerges automatically in groups, avoid crowds.

Our sense of identity is held captive by the judgements of those we live among.

Sometimes the best way to manage a relationship is to end it. Too few get this.

Selfish people will never get to experience the joy of human connection.

We treat those who don't mean anything to us far better than those who mean everything to us.

Is it possible, in the final analysis, for one human being to achieve perfect understanding of another? We can invest enormous time and energy in serious efforts to know another person, but in the end, how close can we come to that person's essence? We convince ourselves that we know the other person well, but do we really know anything important about anyone?

The ones who refer to you repeatedly as my friend are most likely to betray you.

We are interested in others, when they are interested in us.

What is the true significance of relationship? Is it not a process of self-revelation?

Watch people like a hawk, and when they do something good, tell them.

Successful relationships start by giving up control, giving up the need to be loved or wanted or right all the time.

We don't need to be constantly reasonable in order to have good relationships; all we need to have mastered is the occasional capacity to acknowledge with good grace that we may, in one or two areas, be somewhat insane.

Forget trying to change people. Either change yourself or change your environment. Or both.

The quality of your life is proportional to the quality of people in your life. The quality of people you attract depends on the quality of your own person. It's a two way process. To attract better people become a better person. To become better seek the company of better people.

No one changes unless they want to. Not if you beg them. Not if you shame them. Not if you use reason, emotion, or tough love. There's only one thing that makes someone change: their own realization that they need to do it. And there's only one time it will happen: when they decide they're ready.

All top level relationships require radical honesty.

In relationship there must be affection, consideration, adjustment, self-denial, yielding; not to conquer but to live happily.

When you can love all people for who they are, not for what they can give you, you are a wealthy being.

Don't create expectations around things you don't control. One of those things: other people's actions.

You are as good as how nice you are to people you don't have to be nice to.

Neediness makes people blind.

At the end of a relationship, it is the one who is not in love that makes the tender speeches.

Love is dividend of gratitude for our lover's insight into our own confused and troubled psyche.

One has to go into relationships with equal expectations, ready to give as much as the other - not with one person wanting a fling and the other real love.

The success of a relationship should be measured not by never having conflict, but by decreasing the recovery time between conflicts.

Only when your love for someone exceeds your need for them do you have a shot at a genuine relationship together.

Trying to please people less will make them more likely in the long run to respect and treat you better.

Being nice counts the most when you are nice to people ignored by others.

Life is much, much easier when you treat all humans as flawed and imperfect, but flawed in quite different ways.

Part 1. Unless meditation is achieved, love remains a misery. Once you have learned how to live alone, once you have learned how to enjoy your simple existence, for no reason at all, then there is a possibility of solving the second, more complicated problem of two persons being together.

Part 2. Only two meditators can live in love - and then love will not be a koan. But then it will not be a relationship, either, in the sense that you understand it. It will be simply a state of love, not a state of relationship.

The moment love becomes a relationship, it becomes a bondage, because there are expectations and there are demands and there are frustrations, and an effort from both sides to dominate. It becomes a struggle for power.

The direction in which a relationship goes is usually determined by the partner who doesn't care how it goes.

A strong gives forgiveness but weak gives permission.

To love is easy, to be in a relationship is extremely difficult.

I don't care what you say to me. I care what you share with me.

The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are the moments when we touch one another.

We do things for the one we love, but sometimes just being there expresses even deeper love. Give the gift of your full presence.

Love is people caring for people. That is love.

A new friend represents a new universe, created the day she/he arrived.

A friend accepts us as we are, and helps us to be what we should.

A faithful friend is a strong defense; And he that hath found him hath found a treasure.

My old grandmother always used to say, Summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever'.

As you grow older, you realize it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones.

If your friends don't support your healthy lifestyle, then why do you still hang onto them? Life's too short to not have the support we need to be our best selves.

Every morning when I wake up, I dedicate myself to helping others to find peace of mind. Then, when I meet people, I think of them as long time friends; I don't regard others as strangers.

Real trust is like real love. It can only be earned, never mandated or demanded.

Everyone is kind to someone they meet for the first time. The question is how long their kindness lasts.

If you ask perfection in any human being you will create trouble for yourself and for the other, and your life will be nothing but misery.

If people would dare to speak to one another unreservedly, there would be a good deal less sorrow in the world a hundred years hence.

If I want to convince someone, I listen attentively first. Even if I am right, he won't be convinced until he feels heard and respected.

Mutual caring relationships require kindness and patience, tolerance, optimism, joy in the other's achievements, confidence in oneself, and the ability to give without undue thought of gain.

You can't have a relationship with someone hoping they'll change. You have to be willing to commit to them as they are, with no expectations. And if they happen to choose to change at some point along the way, then that's just a bonus.

Stay close to those who are not afraid to be vulnerable, because they have confidence in themselves and know that we all stumble - including you.

In the best, the friendliest and simplest relations flattery or praise is necessary, just as grease is necessary to keep wheels turning.

Treat other people how you want to be treated. If you've failed to do that, it's ok, you're human: go back, own your mistake, apologize and make things right.

Accept people as they are. Not for their sake, but for yours: relying on others to change to make you happy will never work.

I'm only interested in cultivating relationships where there are independent and evolving souls coming together to help each other become the highest version of themselves.

People die all the time. Life is a lot more fragile than we think. So you should treat others in a way that leaves no regrets. Fairly, and if possible, sincerely.

Compliment others more. You'll barely remember you did it, but the other person may never forget that you did. Kindness has unlimited upside.

Seeing others for what they are, and accepting them - it is the single greatest revolution one can undergo in one's relationship with others and the world.

Always think of how others are kind and precious. Treat them as you would like to be treated.

Hang out with people smarter than you, it keeps you humble.

The further you want to climb, the more carefully you need to construct your tribe.

If the relationship can't survive the long term, why on earth would it be worth my time and energy for the short term?

Winners get happy when they see their friends win. Losers get unhappy, jealous, and downright treasonous.

Don't spend time trying to maintain relationships with people you don't like, and cut negative people out of your life.

Every morning, you have a choice. You can strive to lift people up or cut them down. Don't fall for the worst impulses in others. Rise to the occasion and bring out the best in others.

I wish success was about being a great artist, writer, painter, engineer. But it's just as much about who you know, and who knows you. Too many creatives focus on honing their craft, and not enough on how they can meet the people who will change their trajectory with one intro.

How to surround yourself with smart, hard-working people: be smart and hard-working.

We can not control a relationship. We can only contribute to a relationship. All relationships, business or personal, are an opportunity to serve another human being.

If you are successful, it's almost always because some people went out of their way to help you. You have a moral obligation to pay it forward.

Treat everyone you work with like a peer, and you'll usually be surprised on the upside.

Not only are you highly susceptible to the emotions of the people around us, but we also unconsciously adjust our work ethic to theirs.

Work with and under people you admire, and avoid the inverse when at all possible.

If you want to do anything in the world, and this is as true personally as well as professionally, it's all about creating a vision for others to join.

We are all conditioned to want approval from others. It was important for our evolution as a social species, and it served us well in the past. But don't let it own you now.

If you hang around with people who behave worse than you, pretty soon you'll start being pulled in that direction.

Develop the habit of not depending on other people to protect or shelter you.

The ability to understand people is one of the greatest assets anyone can ever have.

If you are unhappy, you will always make a relationship with an unhappy person... A miserable person tends to find a miserable partner.

Love in itself, or just having a relationship with someone, is not going to give you happiness unless you bring happiness with you.

Relationships do not cause pain and unhappiness. They bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you.

When it comes to yourself, don't compromise. You can't take care of others if you don't take care of yourself first.

Helping someone else has asymmetric upside. You won't remember the effort it took and they won't forget it.

The secret to life is not to take it personally. The things people do and say are not always about you. Usually they're about their own fears.

Honest concern for others is the key factor in improving our day to day lives. When you are warm-hearted, there is no room for anger, jealousy or insecurity. Healthy, happy families and a healthy peaceful nation are dependent on warm-heartedness.

You have to work at relationships. You can't just walk out on them every time something goes wrong.

The best time to have a difficult conversation is when you first feel it. The second best time is now. Difficult conversations don't get easier if you wait to have them. The sooner you open up about hard things the better. The longer you wait, the harder it gets.

Intentional living is the art of making our own choices before others' choices make us.

If you over-coddle people, if you protect them from everything that's sharp, you make them dull and narcissistic.

Sisterhood and brotherhood are conditions people have to work at.

Family isn't always blood, it's the people in your life who want you in theirs: the ones who accept you for who you are, the ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.

There is no doubt that it is around the family and the home that all the greatest virtues, the most dominating virtues of human society, are created, strengthened and maintained.

If you want to see mankind fully, look at a family. Within the family minds become organically one, and for this reason the family is total poetry.

I can't help detesting my relations. I suppose it comes from the fact that none of us can stand other people having the same faults as ourselves.

When we understand the connection between how we live and how long we live, it's easier to make different choices. Instead of viewing the time we spend with friends and family as luxuries, we can see that these relationships are among the most powerful determinants of our well-being and survival.

What is home? My favorite definition is a safe place, a place where one is free from attack, a place where one experiences secure relationships and affirmation. It's a place where people share and understand each other. Its relationships are nurturing. The people in it do not need to be perfect; instead, they need to be honest, loving, supportive, recognizing a common humanity that makes all of us vulnerable.

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection.

Always amazed how much people talk, but how little they listen.

Only create associations with positive affinities. Make this a rule of life and you'll benefit more than from all the therapy in the world.

Surround yourself with people who will tell you how it is. Subtlety is a waste of time.

Being with someone who doesn't rush you is like being in heaven.

Surround yourself with people who tell you uncomfortable truths.

Surround yourself with people who: give a f*ck, motivate you, you can learn from, respect you, challenge you, support you, you can vulnerable, tell you the truth, make you better. Relationships like these are priceless.

When you are attracted to people, it's because of the details. Their kindness. Their eyes. The fact that they can get you to laugh when you need it the most.

Great relationships are based on the mutual exchange of unique perspectives.

All friendships and relationships develop inside jokes. The longer the relationship, the more inside jokes you develop. The more inside jokes you develop, the weirder they get. Thus, at some point, all the best friendships and relationships get really weird.

It's easy to make someone feel special. Ask open-ended questions and listen with genuine interest. Attention is the expression of love.

The company should always be better than the food.

The bar for who you spend time with should be incredibly high.

Pay close attention to people who don't clap when you win.

It is a true proverb, that if you live with a lame man, you will learn to limp.

The true test of a relationship is not in how good the times together are, but in how well you handle the bad times - and how quickly you legitimately recover from them.

Every relationship is a blessed gift - even those which you believe have brought you nothing but sadness and pain.

Avoid those who believe they are stronger than you, because they are actually concealing their own fragility.

When you delete or block negative people from your life, good things will start happening to you and it won't be a coincidence.

Stop running to those who ignore you and start running to those who adore you.

Surround yourself with: achievers, doers, dreamers, men of character. Get rid of: complainers, talkers, cynics, sociopaths.

Don't get mad when people don't support you, half don't support themselves.

Avoid people who are more interested in social validation than discovering the truth.

Some people hate when you change because it reminds them that they haven't.

People will take from you what they can. If they sense that you are the type of person who accepts and submits, they will push and push until they have established an exploitative relationship with you.

People can be treacherous. They bring endless battles into your life. Your task is to resist the temptation to wish it were all different; instead you must fearlessly accept these circumstances, even embrace them.

Learn to measure people by the narrowness or breadth of their vision; avoid entangling yourself with those who cannot see the consequences of their actions, who are in a continual reactive mode. They will infect you with this energy.

We often hang on to old, toxic relationships that keep our lives cluttered and prevent new, more nurturing relationships from coming in.

So much relationship misery arises from one person reaching out to another and saying are you there?... am I important to you and the other person says I'm busy right now. I'll tell you later.

People often criticize you most for what they most wish they had in themselves.

If you want people to listen to you, you have to listen to them. If you hope people will change how they live, you have to know how they live. If you want people to see you, you have to sit down with them eye-to-eye.

Mutually caring relationships require kindness and patience, tolerance, optimism, joy in the other's achievements, confidence in oneself, and the ability to give without undue thought of gain. We need to accept the fact that it's not in the power of any human being to provide all these things all the time. For any of us, mutually caring relationships will also always include some measure of unkindness and impatience, intolerance, pessimism, envy, self-doubt, and disappointment.

Never assume that the guy understands that you and he have a relationship.

My relationships with both my mother and father are good. We spent several difficult years hashing over the problems and the past, and worked out a fairly solid middle ground. I wouldn't say my relationship with either of them - they're no longer together - is exactly typical, but that would be difficult after all we went through.

I have a great relationship with the Mexican people.

I have women working in high positions. I was one of the first people to put women in charge of big construction jobs. And, you know, I've had a great relationship with women.

I have a really close relationship with Mike Bloomberg.

God is the name people give to the reason we are here. But I think that reason is the laws of physics rather than someone with whom one can have a personal relationship. An impersonal God.

I have a particular relationship with Vinod Khosla because he's got a lot of very interesting science-based energy startups.

God and I have a great relationship, but we both see other people.

The ultimate relationship between justice and law will be an eternal subject for speculation and analysis. But it may be said that in a democratic society, law is the form which free men give to justice.

People who don't know the true character of God - who don't believe He is merciful, gracious and slow to anger - can never have a close, personal, intimate relationship with Him.

The truth is God created us to have relationship with us. He wants to love us and take care of us, and He wants us to love Him. That's where our walk with Christ has to start.

What we need to understand is that when traditions become laws, rules, obligations and expectations others put on us that we don't want to fulfill, then they lose real meaning and steal the joy from our lives. And if we're too religious, we won't be able to be led by the Holy Spirit and enjoy an intimate relationship with Him.

In my relationship with God, I've learned that if I follow a 'formula' for how I spend my time with Him, then I'm just accomplishing a checklist of things I feel obligated to do to please Him. This makes my spiritual life more about doing what I need to do to fulfill an obligation than something meaningful.

When we enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, something wonderful happens: God begins to change our desires, and we want to be more like Him.

Prayer is such a basic foundation of a Christian's relationship with God. It's how we communicate and fellowship with Him. But a surprising number of people, young and old, new and even long-time Christians, say they're not satisfied with their prayer life.

Real life is the life that's in you, not your circumstances, like where you live or what job you have or who you're in relationship with.

It always seems odd to me that the fundamental laws of physics, when discovered, can appear in so many different forms that are not apparently identical at first, but, with a little mathematical fiddling, you can show the relationship.

'The Story of Us' is about running into someone I had been in a relationship with at an awards show, and we were seated a few seats away from each other. I just wanted to say to him, 'Is this killing you? Because it's killing me.' But I didn't. Because I couldn't. Because we both had these silent shields up.

I think the worst part about a breakup sometimes, if one could choose a worst part, would possibly be if you get out of a relationship, and you don't recognize yourself because you changed a lot about you.

The drama and the trauma of the relationship you have when you're 16 can mirror the one you have when you're 26. Life repeats itself.

I don't know how to have a normal relationship because I try to act normal and love from a normal place and live a normal life, but there is sort of an abnormal magnifying glass, like telescope lens, on everything that happens.

I'm the girl who - I call it girl-next-door-itis - the hot guy is friends with and gets all his relationship advice from but never considers dating.

It is plain indeed that in spite of later estrangement Hobbits are relatives of ours: far nearer to us than Elves, or even than Dwarves.

You don't want to be ungenerous toward people who give you prizes, but it is never the social or political message that interests me in a novel. I begin with an interest in a relationship, a situation, a character.

Anxiety and spiritual searching have been consistent themes with me, and that figures into my worldview. But I tend to make my songs sound like relationship songs.

Love is the missing factor; there is a lack of affection, of warmth in relationship; and because we lack that love, that tenderness, that generosity, that mercy in relationship, we escape into mass action, which produces further confusion, further misery.

Life is relationship, living is relationship. We cannot live if you and I have built a wall around ourselves and just peep over that wall occasionally. Unconsciously, deeply, under the wall, we are related.

For most of us, relationship with another is based on dependence, either economic or psychological. This dependence creates fear, breeds in us possessiveness, results in friction, suspicion, frustration.

Life cannot be without relationship, but we have made it so agonizing and hideous by basing it on personal and possessive love. Can one love and yet not possess? You will find the true answer not in escape, ideals, beliefs but through the understanding of the causes of dependence and possessiveness.

I can encourage my daughter to love her body, but what really matters are the observations she makes about my relationship with my own body.

Enchanted partnership begins with the conscious understanding, on the part of two people, that the purpose of their relationship is not so much material as spiritual, and the internal skills demanded by it are prodigious.

My life takes me all over the world, and I know how hard that can be on a relationship.

I think there are so many books out there written on relationships and romance that women are the authors of. How can women know exactly how men think? And there are so many guys out there with relationship books who are just not telling the truth. They have shaded parts.

You've got to be in a bad relationship to really understand what a great one is.

A father-son relationship is strong, like no other teammates. You could be straightforward with one another.

The relationship I have with my Hispanic fans is very deep and intricate.

We all think that this relationship thing is a game out here. All I'm saying to women is, 'Okay. If it's a game, here are the rules that we play by.'

What is real is that adultery destroys tens of thousands of families every year across America.

What is real is that adultery is an open wound in a relationship which more often than not overflows into domestic violence or worse.

It seemed like whenever I got a bona fide offer from Ferrari, I couldn't do it. And vice versa - when I was ready, their seats were taken. We always had a relationship, but what's important is that I pretty much started my F1 career with them and ended it there, too.

Gerard doesn't tell me what to do. We discuss everything as a couple, as I imagine most partners do. We have a beautiful relationship and one of mutual trust.

I think that anyone who lives in New York, who's lived here, who's spent any time here, knows that it's basically a love-hate relationship, you might say. Even though I still think it's the greatest city in the world and I wouldn't live anywhere else, there're still things about it one doesn't like. The love far outweighs the negative.

My mom is a wonderful woman. She's always been an inspiration to me, but having kids helped me make even more sense of my relationship with her.

When I look at relationships, my own and others, I see a wide range of reasons for people to be together and ways in which they are together. I see ways in which a relationship - which means something that exists between two or more people - for the most part reinforces people's separateness as individual entities.

History shows us that in times of people feeling like they are in need of some sort of rebellion or protests, the artists rise because the poetry we create about pain and its relationship to culture in the world begins to soothe and heal people who are feeling confused or afraid.

What someone is paid has little or no relationship to what their work is worth to society.

Y'know, every relationship is different. There are good marriages, bad marriages, connected partners, unconnected partners.

When I work, my first relationship with people is professional.

Brad and I have never wanted our kids to be actors, but we also want them to be around film and be a part of Mommy and Daddy's life and for it not to be kept from them, either. We just want them to have a good, healthy relationship with it.

Brad was a huge surprise to me. I think we were both the last two people who were looking for a relationship. I certainly wasn't. I was quite content to be a single mom with Mad.

When we begin to desire a thing, to yearn for it with all our hearts, we begin to establish relationship with it in proportion to the strength and persistency of our longing and intelligent effort to realize it.

To have a relationship that is pure and passionate and beautiful - I think people are scared of having that now. Especially guys.

When you're in a relationship, if you just break it down to regular terms, people are attracted to something, and that's what they want you to be, and that's what you should just be, and for me, it's very simple - if I meet a girl and I say, 'This is what I like about you. Just continue. Every day.'

If you're a woman, it's almost impossible to establish a relationship. You're too much for everybody. It's too much. The woman always has to play this role of being fragile and dependent.

Circumstance has no value. It is how one relates to a situation that has value. All true meaning resides in the personal relationship to a phenomenon... what it means to you.

Being a woman, we talk about equal pay all the time. We're not talking about if you're black or if you are Latina.

I learnt to stop fantasising about the perfect job or the perfect relationship because that can actually be an excuse for not living.

Laughter is an important part of a good relationship.

More than half of people who leave their jobs do so because of their relationship with their boss. Smart companies make certain their managers know how to balance being professional with being human.

I am honored to be one of this year's Urbanworld ambassadors for the festival's 20th anniversary, joining my friend David Oyelowo. I have always had a special relationship with Urbanworld, back to my days as a festival publicist to previewing my earlier films and now as an ambassador.

I think you learn more about yourself in the context of a relationship than you can outside of it.

I married her after knowing her eight days, and I was happy. That was my baby. At the same time, with us being so spontaneous, we did it backwards. Maybe she won't admit it, but I will.

I am a huge Prince fan. It's a very rare thing for him to have people open for him. It's been the Time and Sheila E., and that's about it. Building a relationship with him has been like a dream come true. I've been looking for a mentor, and I feel like I have that in him.

I believe the relationship you have with your government is not so different to a love relationship.

American official policy is that Egypt is an ally of the United States. Of course, we recognize that Egypt has gone through a dramatic change in government. And what their status will be going forward in terms of the relationship with our nation is something which which I'm sure will be developing over time.

I just think the most important aspect in being able to have a productive relationship between the teachers' unions and the districts and the states that they're dealing with is that the person sitting across the table from them should not have received the largest campaign contributions from the teachers' union itself.

I've never really had a competitive relationship in any work situation.

When I'm in a relationship, I give my heart and soul to it and do it 100 percent.

When someone comes up to me and says, 'Mary, you helped save my marriage', or, 'Mary, you helped me get out of this abusive relationship', I'm in it, really in their lives. And I'm so passionate about my feelings, but also about showing people the way through theirs.

I fell in love with New York. It was like every human being, like any relationship. When I was a young New Yorker, it was one city. When I was a grown man, it was another city. I worked with many dance organizations and many wonderful people.

For me to work with someone, I have to know who I'm working with so I can learn how to deal with each other and try to help each other. At the end of the day, it really just comes down to building a genuine relationship. I think that's a very important factor in business.

I recorded 'The End of All Things' right before I married my now wife. We had no vows publicly, so I wrote her this song and told her, 'This is how I see our relationship.'

I think everyone understands grief, the journey it takes us on, whether it's the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a disappointment. Some people don't deal with it, the power of it. Some do. Some feel the weight of it and it informs their choices. I've had to open up to grief in different contexts.

The older you get, the more you start to realize that you can't win an argument in a relationship. You can't win a fight with your woman. Because if you lose, you lose. And if you win, you lose.

A lot of people are afraid to face themselves, especially when something goes wrong. But that's important, because if something happens within a relationship, it could be how you're allowing someone else to treat you.

In improv, the whole thing is that it is a relationship between the two people, as a back and forth. In standup, you don't really want to be listening to what somebody is saying; you want to project your jokes into their face. And that's really not a good instinct with a 'Daily Show' field piece, where it's supposed to be an interview.

In improv, the whole thing is that it is a relationship between the two people, as a back and forth. In standup, you don't really want to be listening to what somebody is saying; you want to project your jokes into their face.

I like all of the early relationship strips that were collected in 'Love Is Hell,' where I pretended to be an expert in relationships and did comics like 'The Nine Types of Boyfriends,' 'Sixteen Ways to End a Relationship,' 'Twenty-Four Things Not to Say in Bed,' and other arbitrarily numbered lists.

The essential relationship across American history between black people and white people is one of exploitation and one of plunder.

My first wife was a brunette, and Barbi Benton, my major romantic relationship of the early 1970s, was a brunette. But since the end of my marriage, all of my girlfriends have been blonds.

I think one of the most important things in a relationship is caring for your significant other through good times and bad.

I always talk to all the crew. I always make it pleasant. I always nurture a relationship that makes people feel like they're important, like they're a part of the collaboration.

My relationship to comics isn't nearly as strong as some people's. Ha! I mean, I grew up with a comic book fanatic. My older brother was, and still is, obsessed. And I was obsessed with the fact that he was obsessed, because I was obsessed with him. But not necessarily with comics themselves.

The topic of trust is an important factor in all matters of the heart - and here's why. Men lie to women. Women lie to men. And most people agree that some lying is even necessary - to avoid petty squabbles and to grease the wheels of a relationship.

Maybe it's just a personal thing, but I get so much grounding from Iceland because I know it's always going to be there. I have a very happy, healthy relationship with the country, so it's really easy to go everywhere because I always have Iceland to go back to.

I have dabbled in martial arts all my life, since I was 7, maybe - tae kwon do, capoeira, Muay Thai. It's always been an interest because in martial arts there is a mind/body relationship.

It's funny: Your relationship changes with a song over time. After a year or so, you're a different person, so your songs, you don't connect with them like you did.

I have a very healthy relationship to my work, and I find that if a scene is working, no matter how intense it is, you have the catharsis on screen, and you can let it go.

I think the fact that I'm so well known to be gay makes it very difficult to have a convincing relationship with a woman on screen. It wouldn't be at all difficult for me to kiss a woman - I'll kiss a frog if you like.

When a mother quarrels with a daughter, she has a double dose of unhappiness hers from the conflict, and empathy with her daughter's from the conflict with her. Throughout her life a mother retains this special need to maintain a good relationship with her daughter.

But I think there's something wonderful and extraordinary about climbing on your own and just that kind of relationship to the environment. I'm very addicted to the mountains. You know, so, I do like that solitude.

It makes people relate to him.

I don't think it's more difficult for actors to have a good marriage than anyone. I think, in the end, a really important component of any relationship is honesty, and it also comes down to luck.

I've never been comfortable being a pawn. I work with brands where I feel like I can have my say and companies that I'm proud to be in a relationship with. Partnerships take a lot of time. If I am going to put my name and my face and my energy behind something, I want it to be authentic.

My relationship with fashion has always been that each of us stars in our own movies and costumes ourselves to play the part we want. You take blouses and jeans and dresses, and you put them together, and they tell your story.

Who I am really doesn't matter at all. If I'm the worst person in the world, you can hate me and move on. What really matters here are the issues. What really matters here is the kind of government we want, the kind of Internet we want, the kind of relationship between people and societies.

No relationship is easy, and nobody should ever think it is. The minute you start forgetting the needs of the other person is when you get in trouble.

Not every relationship works, and that is the truth, and I don't care whether you're a movie star or just a person on the street, normal life. Everybody's normal, relationships are always normal. I think movie stars have a little bit harder time because the cameras are on there all the time. But you have to be who you are.

Because I live in the countryside, I want a building which encourages me to have a fully formed relationship with the environment. It gives me an opportunity to not just be inside or outside, but in a range of contexts.

For seven years, I had a business relationship in Milan, Milano. Dealing with Italians, just, let me tell you... Are we the same? Good lord, no! That's why Europe's fun - it's fun because it's different. A political project that seeks to make it all the same - it's ghastly.

All of our great traditions, religious, contemplative and artistic, say that you must a learn how to be alone - and have a relationship with silence. It is difficult, but it can start with just the tiniest quiet moment.

A strong working relationship requires every participant to be on the same page.

I'm Nigerian. I'm African. I have a lot to say. Apart from what I say, though, is the feeling. People can relate to that feeling. It's a reciprocal relationship. They feed off me and I feed off them.

I've not been in a live-in relationship. But I've been exposed to various kinds of equations that can exist between people. When I came from Bangalore, it was black and white.

I don't have an issue with marrying an actor, though it's definitely tough. I work with actors and interact with star wives, and I don't know how they do it. Loyalty is a very important factor for me, and I need to be in a relationship where the person will complete me and fill me up.

I don't count that relationship with Ricky. It's just like a blip at this point. I had to fall in love with the devil himself to get this sweet angel, Jack.

I think there's a couple of things going on. One is that Trump's relationship with his base is not the traditional relationship of a politician and the people who elected him, and the constituency, which is a relationship of some accountability, right? The idea is that the politicians are working for the people. They're public servants.

I don't think you can understand Trump's relationship to his voters and how he gets away with what he gets away with, without understanding the pact between a lifestyle brand and its consumer base and how that really transformed the global economy in the 1990s.

As I explored Trump's inextricable relationship with his commercial brand, and its implications for the future of politics, I began to see why so many of the attacks on him have failed to stick - and how we can identify ways of resisting him that will be more effective.

There may be circumstances in which damaging our relationship with countries over human rights is counterproductive and the benefits to human rights may be very small because of our limited capacity to enforce our stance. That was the dilemma the United States faced after Tiananmen Square.

Basically, I want that relationship where we have that love. I love her so much, and she loves me so much that it's just - you want that relationship where you look into the girl's eyes, and you know that she's everything you've ever wanted. When I find that, I'm going to get it!

I'd had a relationship with a woman when I was 20, but nobody cared then. As it came out at the same time as my fame, I started to have panic attacks.

I am not looking for a relationship right now. I have no interest in putting my time or effort into another person, nor do I need another person to put energy into me, OK? Because that's what granola bars are for.

We're told that you can have a relationship with Jesus, but most Christians don't experience Jesus personally like that. They just don't. We honor Him. We respect Him. We worship Him. We don't experience Him and His personality like we do the people we love the most in our lives.

I guess I have sort of an atypical relationship with my mom for someone my age, because I think I started so young with the music thing and I had my parents always on the road with me. So at a time when I think I should have been rebelling, like in high school, they were actually my best friends.

I couldn't put my hand on my heart and say I think that being in a relationship is a natural state for a human being.

I can sit down with my sisters, and they can talk about my body in a certain way, and I will laugh about it with them. That's such a comfortable and loving relationship. But if a stranger I meet in a party makes the same comment, depending on their tone, that's not okay.

I believe that often people even stay in bad relationships longer than they should because the fear of the pain of dating is scarier than the pain of a bad relationship!

The best relationship is one that does not foster too much independence nor too much dependence, but exists in the healthy interdependence zone.

Don't try to convince your partner you are right. Instead of trying to win arguments, try to have a winning relationship!

'Thor' has got several big battles in it, a reckless, headstrong young hero who has to confront his past and deal with a complicated relationship with his father, it has lots of savage Europeans hacking each other to death at various points, and all of this sounded very much like 'Henry V.'

I didn't have a father to deal with about boyfriends. I didn't have a father to show me how a man and woman relate in a family setting. Therefore, I have given over my life to mentoring young people. I'm adamant about young people who have been denied a father/daughter relationship.

One of the biggest things I tell women is not to lose themselves in a relationship. If you're willing to alter yourself to find somebody, it'll never work.

There's nothing wrong with taking yourself out of the dating pool. You don't need to be in a relationship because that's what society expects of you or because your grandmother thinks you need to be married by a certain date. Those days are over. Instead, take a step back and say, 'I'm OK alone.'

The dynamic of how women and men are meant to interact, for those of us who are looking for a heterosexual relationship, is very broken, and it leads to a lot of really dysfunctional relationships, abusive and otherwise.

I'm in a relationship and have never been on Tinder as a single woman, but from what I have seen, I think it is always good to have a picture with an animal to show that you are kind.

I used to define success as being able to produce any result you wanted, whether it was a relationship, weight-loss, being a millionaire, impacting the culture, changing society, whatever it might be - it might be homelessness, whatever - and lately, I've redefined success as 'fulfilling your soul's purpose.'

The fact that I am blind is not what defines my life. It should be of no more interest than my blood type. People wonder if there is a relationship between my lack of sight and the way I sing. But there's no connection.

One of the things I have always said about the man-woman relationship is that I don't want anybody to walk ahead of me, and I don't want anybody to walk behind me. I want a man who will walk along beside me. And that's how I feel about equal rights.

I have specifically argued that we need to change our relationship with the European Union by fundamentally reforming not just our relationship but the European Union itself.

You kind of restructure your whole personality to be in a healthy relationship.

I like being in relationship because of the comfort it provides.

Many employer-employee relationships are built on a lie that starts from the first interaction: neither party automatically conceives of the relationship as something that will last a lifetime, but both interact as if it is. This lie of omission bases the relationship on distrust.

People don't understand that I have a great relationship with my parents - like, how that can exist. There isn't any judgment. They don't necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don't necessarily agree with everything they do.

The relationship between stars and their fans is always ambivalent and often highly charged with contradictory and ambivalent emotions, of which the most powerful is need.

This world of 'Star Wars' is just so accepting and beautiful that the idea a droid and a human are trying to waddle their way into a relationship is something that's celebrated.

I think marriage initially involves a lot of people who have nothing to do with your relationship, because it's a legally binding contract, and that has a weight to it.

I love my fans, and I love my relationship with the fans, but when you're a performer, and you're used to being the mac daddy, the main cat, and all of a sudden you're not that guy anymore, it's kind of a whole different spectrum and a whole different level.

I believe that every character is a setting, a world with moving parts, and on the other hand, every setting is, in fact, a character - a living breathing thing with personality and backstory. The way stories come to life, at least for me, is when these elements commune in relationship to one another.

My parents had a certain resolve to them that I don't see as so prevalent today. Through good times and bad, they were committed to one another. Their relationship wasn't something to be constantly examined or picked apart.

If you begin to think you are solely responsible for keeping your loved one alive and safe, you will eventually find yourself playing God. This phase can develop into an unhealthy, codependent relationship.

If you ask me to describe my relationship, I mean - words are too clumsy to accurately describe how I feel in that regard, particularly in an interview. It's a strange thing.
