Quotes About Not Needed Someone

"When I asked my father whether he thought that it was possible that his mother was raped behind that closed door, he said, "She had washer-woman knees. No one could possibly think of her as a sexual object. Besides," he explained, "she would have told my sisters, and they would have told me." I am not so sure. Maybe someone needed to ask her. Someone needed to want to know, to be able to hear the answer. (77)" - Author: Jessica Stern

Quotes About Devotion And Love

"[L]asting love is something a person has to decide to experience. Lifelong monogamous devotion is just not natural—not for women even, and emphatically not for men. It requires what, for lack of a better term, we can call an act of will. . . . This isnt to say that a young man cant hope to be seized by love. . . . But whether the sheer fury of a mans feelings accurately gauges their likely endurance is another question. The ardor will surely fade, sooner or later, and the marriage will then live or die on respect, practical compatibility, simple affection, and (these days, especially) determination. With the help of these things, something worthy of the label love can last until death. But it will be a different kind of love from the kind that began the marriage. Will it be a richer love, a deeper love, a more spiritual love? Opinions vary. But its certainly a more impressive love." - Author: Robert Wright

How do you survive?You dont, I resolved.Theres no coming back from that permanent void left inside of you.You become a shell,going through the motions without emotion,like a robot,while the rest of me was wherever Cameron was..." - Author: Julie Hockley

Quotes About Weakness

"Id more than missed him, I needed him. It wasnt a dependency, it wasnt a weakness or a failure, he was an addition to my very soul. And I laughed into our kiss as I realized that this was what love was. I could live without him, of course I could, and I could function and get on with my days if he wasnt here, but I didnt want to. I wanted him right where he was, in my space and in my life." - Author: Shelly Crane
