4. "Nicholas wanted to scream until his throat bled. Or tear apart a wall of concrete with his bare hands. Anything – anything – to get the woman off his mind. The temptation she offered. The peace, the hope. They were killing him, taking away the need for revenge and replacing it with the need for her. As though she alone could collect the torn pieces of his life, stitch them back together, and help make him whole again.He couldn't take it, feeling again. Needing again after so many years spent in disconnect. It was too much, and if he hadn't run from her like a total coward, he would have succumbed – lost himself inside the woman and given up to oblivion without a single ounce of remorse."

"Though Charles II both craved and enjoyed female companionship till the end of his life, there is no question that by the cold, rainy autumn of 1682 his physical appetites had diminshed considerably.

Or as Samuel Pepys tartly noted in his diary, "the king yawns much in council, it is thought he spends himself overmuch in the arms of Madame Louise, who far from being wearied, seems fresher than ever after sporting with the king."
Author: Antonia Fraser
6. "Our phone bills were astronomical, and when I found the letters Frank wrote me the other day, the total could fill a suitcase.

He was a man who was deseperate for companionship and love. Can you wonder that he always had mine!"
Author: Ava Gardner

"More and more, for the stupid little kid, that was the idea . . .That if enough people looked at you, you'd never need anybody's attention ever again.That if someday you were caught, exposed, and revealed enough, then you'd never be able to hide again. There'd be no difference between your public and your private lives.That if you could acquire enough, accomplish enough, you'd never want to own or do another thing.That if you could eat or sleep enough, you'd never need more.That if enough people loved you, you'd stop needing love.That you could ever be smart enough.That you could someday get enough sex.These all became the little boy's new goals. The illusions he'd have for the rest of his life. These were all the promises he saw in the fat man's smile"
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
8. "While much psychology emphasizes the familial causes of angst in humans, the cultural component carries as much weight, for culture is the family of the family. If the family of the family has various sicknesses, then all families within that culture will have to struggle with the same malaises. There is a saying cultura cura, culture cures. If the culture is a healer, the families learn how to heal; they will struggle less, be more reparative, far less wounding, far more graceful and loving. In a culture where the predator rules, all new life needing to be born, all old life needing to be gone, is unable to move and the soul-lives of its citizenry are frozen with both fear and spiritual famine."
Author: Clarissa Pinkola Estés

(Dallas Willard in Ruthless Trust - Brennan Manning)"
Author: Dallas Willard

Author: Julie Farrell
11. "Isn't being in love reward enough without needing a special day as a bonus?"
Author: Kim Askew
12. "I understood now that all of us have that place inside that wants to be part of something, that needs the comfort and companionship of loved ones. Within each of us, there is an empty room, and when we open the door, light flows in. The wider we open it, and the longer we leave it open, the brighter our souls become."
Author: Lisa Wingate
