I believe that it's better to be looked over than it is to be overlooked.

Sex alleviates tension. Love causes it.
You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with.
We enter the world alone, we leave the world alone.
Loneliness is never more cruel than when it is felt in close propinquity with someone who has ceased to communicate.
People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.
If you are lonely when you are alone, you are in bad company.
If a man truly wants to communicate with his wife, he must enter her world of emotions.
A happy marriage perhaps represents the ideal of human relationship -- a setting in which each partner, while acknowledging the need of the other, feels free to be what he or she by nature is: a relationship in which instinct as well as intellect can find expression; in which giving and taking are equal; in which each accepts the other, and I confronts Thou.
Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side.
Marriage is NOT about HAVING another person. Marriage is about GIVING ONESELF to another person.
When a wife has a good husband it is easily seen in her face.
The married are those who have taken the terrible risk of intimacy and, having taken it, know life without intimacy to be impossible.
Man loves little and often. Woman much and rarely.
A woman who gives any advantage to a man may expect a lover -- but will sooner or later find a tyrant.
Men mourn for what they have lost; women for what they ain't got.
Men act and women appear. Men look at women. Women watch themselves being looked at.
At the punch-bowl's brink, let the thirsty think, what they say in Japan: first the man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the man!
They make much of our drinking, but never think of our thirst.
What whiskey will not cure, there is no cure for.
No power on earth or above the bottomless pit has such influence to terrorize and make cowards of men as the liquor power. Satan could not have fallen on a more potent instrument with which to thrall the world. Alcohol is king!
One drink is too many for me and a thousand not enough.
Alcohol is necessary for a man so that he can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed be the facts.
A drinker has a hole under his nose that all his money runs into.
Wine hath drowned more men than the sea.
Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better.
Love is shown in your deeds, not in your words.
You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.
Don't hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love.
If you could get up the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.
In this country, don't forget, a habit is no damn private hell. There's no solitary confinement outside of jail. A habit is hell for those you love. And in this country it's the worst kind of hell for those who love you.
It is not heroin or cocaine that makes one an addict, it is the need to escape from a harsh reality. There are more television addicts, more baseball and football addicts, more movie addicts, and certainly more alcohol addicts in this country than there are narcotics addicts.
I feel that any form of so called psychotherapy is strongly contraindicated for addicts. The question Why did you start using narcotics in the first place? should never be asked. It is quite as irrelevant to treatment as it would be to ask a malarial patient why he went to a malarial area.
I hope that my achievements in life shall be these -- that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need that I will have left the earth a better place for what I've done and who I've been.
If life were measured by accomplishments, most of us would die in infancy.
The only way around is through.
To live without Hope is to Cease to live.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
Hope is the expectation that something outside of ourselves, something or someone external, is going to come to our rescue and we will live happily ever after.
Nothing that is God's is obtainable by money.
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.
One may walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.
Real love stories never have endings.
Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love, you want the other person.
The reason why so little is done, is generally because so little is attempted.
Winning starts with beginning.
Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing perfectly.
You will never win if you never begin.
The time for action is now. It's never too late to do something.
What saves a man is to take a step. Then another step.
You prove your worth with your actions, not with your mouth.
The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
Speak out in acts; the time for words has passed, and only deeds will suffice.
A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart.
