Robert J Wiersema Quotes

"Nostalgia is, by its very nature, bittersweet, the happiest memories laced with melancholy. Its that combination, that opposition of forces, that makes it so compelling. People, places, events, times: we miss them, and theres a pleasure in the missing and a sadness in the love.The feeling is most acute, sometimes cripplingly so, when we find ourselves longing for the moment were in, the people were actually with.That nameless feeling, that sense of excruciating beauty, of pained happiness, is at the core of "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)."

Quotes About Love Age Doesn Matter

"When God brought the first man his spouse, he brought him not just a lover but the friend his heart had been seeking. Proverbs 2:17 speaks of ones spouse as your "allup," a unique word that the lexicons define as your "special confidant" or "best friend." In an age where women were often seen as the husbands property, and marriages were mainly business deals and transactions seeking to increase the familys social status and security, it was startling for the Bible to describe a spouse in this way. But in todays society, with its emphasis on romance and sex, it is just as radical to insist that your spouse should be your best friend, though for a different reason. In tribal societies, romance doesnt matter as much as social status, and in individualistic Western societies, romance and great sex matter far more than anything else. The Bible, however, without ignoring the importance of romance, puts great emphasis on marriage as companionship." - Author: Timothy Keller

Quotes About Katerina Ivanovna

"I am leaving now; but know, Katerina Ivanovna, that you indeed love only him. And the more he insults you, the more you love him. That is your strain. You precisely love him as he is, you love him insulting you. If he reformed, you would drop him at once and stop loving him altogether. But you need him in order to continually contemplate your high deed of faithfulness, and to reproach him for his unfaithfulness. And it all comes from your pride. Oh, there is much humility and humiliation in it, but all of it comes from pride." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
