Relationships are complicated. Most are by choice, but many are by birth or chance. There are innumerable quotes about all kinds of relationships. They can be useful when speaking at functions and events. Here are just a few famous ones.
There are many quotes, which speak to the relationship of loving another person with absolutely no boundaries put upon those relationships. They simply tout the blessings of love.
William Shakespeare said that, “Love comforteth like sunshine after rain.” Alfred Lord Tennyson believed, “Love is the only gold.” Plato thought, “He who love touches walks not in darkness.” Pablo Picasso said, “Love is the greatest refreshment in life.”
Moliere admitted, ” To live without loving is not to really live.” Even Lennon and McCartney said, “All you need is love.” We all have heard, “It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” by Lord Tennyson. Albert Einstein humorously pointed out, “Gravity cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.” The song, Unchained Melody contains those famous words, “Oh my love, my darling, I’ve hungered for your touch.” Or how about Winnie the Pooh who says, ” If you live to be 100, I want to live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”
Some quotes celebrate the union of marriage and as such are the perfect addition to a speech at a wedding or anniversary. They talk of bliss, inseparability of a couple, point out the joy, unending happiness two people share for eternity and offer good advice. Writer George Elliot wrote, “The intense happiness of our union is derived in a high degree from the perfect freedom, with which we follow and declare our own impressions.” Mohandas Gandhi said, “Love never claims, it ever gives.” Warren Beatty said, “For me, the highest level of sexual excitement is in a monogamous relationship.”
There are quotes that focus on relationships between man and woman, that complex situation where most of the time neither person knows where they stand. Not all relationship quotes are of the ‘happily ever after’ variety. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet’s beautiful quote did not guarantee a happy ending. “But soft! What light from yonder window breaks? It is the east and Juliet is the sun.” Pearl S. Buck wrote, “Love dies only when growth stops.” Katherine Hepburn said, “Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and visit now and then.” Who could forget the poignant Casablanca quote from Bogart, “We’ll always have Paris.” Woody Allen, screenwriter, had a wonderful quote about an ending relationship.” A relationship, I think, is like a shark, you know? It has to go forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.”
There are quotes for the friend relationship with much needed advice on how to best keep that bond in good standing. Rev. Jesse’s Jackson advises, “Never look down on anybody unless you are going to help them up.” Martin Luther King JR was quoted as saying, “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” Eleanor Roosevelt advised that, “Friendship with oneself is all- important because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.” This special relationship is described beautifully by Aristotle; “Friendship is a single soul living in two bodies.”
Relationship quotes for family are hardest to find and the hardest relationships to maintain pleasantly. Those are the ones foisted upon you with little regard to choice. Born into those, however, we all admit that blood is thicker than water. The Jewish proverb says that” God could not be everywhere and therefore He made mothers.” Agatha Christie said, “A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no laws, no pity, it dares all things, and crushes down remorsely all that stands in their path.” “The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother,” said Henry Ward Beecher. Good advice on relationships with children came from Harry S. Truman, ” I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it.” I’ve always liked Mark Twain’s wit as expressed in his famous quote, “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could barely stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man learned in just seven years.”
