In a true partnership, the kind worth striving for, the kind worth insisting on, and even, frankly, worth divorcing over, both people try to give as much or even a little more than they get.

Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.- Sharon Salzberg

[Peace] is the highest and most strenuous act of the soul, but an entirely harmonious act, in which all our powers and affections are blending in a beautiful proportion, and sustain and perfect one another. It is more than the silence after storms.

This is peace, and the true happiness of [humanity]- William Ellery Channing
