Poems have been written, songs have been sung, stories have been told ...
about human desires that have fulfilled... or defeated our dreams.
We have experienced both throughout our lives.
I share the following expressions with you.

A Relationship is a Connection between or among people. It is difficult to define because of its complexity. Much has been written by psychologists
about their analyses on this topic.
Very simply, a Relationship is the Heart of Human Desire!

The things that people in love do to each other they remember;
and if they stay together ,
it's not because they forget, it's because they forgive. (Indecent Proposal)

Oh, the comfort – the inexpressible comfort of feeling “safe” with a person,
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together,
certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
(Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859)

If you are going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make,
who would you call? and what would you say? and why are you waiting?
(Stephen Levine)

Don't smother each other. No one can grow in the shade. (Leo Buscaglia)

Sticks and stones are hard on bones
aimed with angry art.
Words can sting like anything
but silence breaks the heart.
(Phyllis McGinley – Ballade of Lost Objects, 1954)

Someone to tell it to is one of the fundamental needs of human beings.
(Miles Franklin)

You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you,
but at the same time, you carry them with you in your heart and mind
because you do not just live in a world, but the world lives in you.
(Frederick Bucchner)

Present your family and friends with their eulogies now...
they won't be able to hear how much you love them and appreciate them
from inside the coffin. (Anonymous)

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind, “Pooh,” he whispered, “Yes, Piglet?”
“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw, “I just wanted to be sure of you.”
(A. A. Milne)

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom. (Marcel Proust)

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone
who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. (Oprah Winfrey)

There are times when two people need to step apart from one another,
but there is no rule that says they have to turn and fire. (Robert Brault)

Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you.
They are not always perfect, but are always perfect for you.
(Author unknown)

Getting to know someone is like opening a safe;
you need to learn the unique combination of numbers. (Delmore Schwartz)

Human Relationships just aren't fixed in their orbits; they're more like galaxies...
changing all the time, exploding into light years, then dying away. (Mary Sarton)

It is the things in common
that make relationships enjoyable...
but it is the little differences
that make them interesting.

Love is not about finding the right person,
but creating a right relationship.
It's not about how much love you have in the beginning
but how much love you build to the end.

Relationships are like snapshots; some you remember and some you forget;
unfortunately some you never develop
and you never see how they would have turned out.

The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree, while still holding hands.

The most wonderful of all things in life,
I believe, is the discovery of another human being
with whom one's relationship has a growing depth,
beauty and joy as the years increase.
This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings
is the most marvellous thing.
It cannot be found by looking for it
or by passionately wishing for it.
It is a sort of divine accident
and the most wonderful of all things in life

My next blog submission is composed by a family man...and his wife,
who a few years ago immigrated to our city, from Argentina.
Pablo expresses his emotions and love for his family and friends.
They are now Canadian citizens...totally enchanted with their new homeland.
