There’s nothing in the world like live entertainment. With TV, you have to wait for your results; with live entertainment, people let you know right then and there. That relationship is established in 30 seconds. The first 30 seconds, they’ll let you know whether they like you or not.

Relationships are like traffic lights. And I just have this theory that I can only exist in a relationship if it’s a green light.

Money can come and go, and fame comes and goes. Peace of mind and a relationship with God is far more important, so this is the precedent that we’ve set in our lives. The bottom line is, we all die, so Jesus is the answer.
I believe that every character is a setting, a world with moving parts, and on the other hand, every setting is, in fact, a character – a living breathing thing with personality and backstory. The way stories come to life, at least for me, is when these elements commune in relationship to one another.
When I am in a relationship, I give it my 100 per cent. But then, if it doesn’t work, you cannot help it. You cannot move ahead with something which isn’t working.

My husband. He keeps me grounded. If I were in the world on my own, it would all be much more seductive. But I’m in a relationship that has nothing to do with the film world.

T. B. Joshua
I don’t want to be Batman. Let Val Kilmer do it. I just want to be Uncle Batman. I have this whole ‘warm relationship’ plot in my mind. In the final scenes, the new Batmobile breaks down, the new Batman’s stranded on the side of the road. We grab our old Batmobile, pick him up and drive away.
And I think that a lot of people in their 20s go through that thing of, this life that I think that I was about to lead, is that actually nonsense? Is that actually something I want to do?… And so they go traveling, or they have a mad relationship, or they dye their hair or whatever.
Friendship brings in a lot of honesty and trust into any relationship, especially a marriage.
Tobey Maguire and I had a tough relationship – it was a tough working relationship. We butted heads, and ultimately, I lost the Los Angeles game because of differences with him. But then I moved to New York and built a bigger game, five times bigger, making more money, and that was pretty exciting.
Working parents bring a certain amount of guilt to their relationship with their children.

When I was growing up with Chris, I was the little brother that was kind of annoying: ‘Can I come?’ ‘Get out of here.’ ‘Can I play?’ ‘Get out of here.’ So that’s our relationship. I just do my own thing. I leave him alone.
You have a strange relationship with calamity when you’re a writer: you write about it; as an artist, you objectify and fetishize it. You render life into material, and that’s a creepy thing to do.
I feel fortunate I have this amazing relationship with so many people in America, because I was in their homes at a very private time of day. They probably might have still had their robe on and their slippers and haven’t made the beds.
It is better to have a relationship with someone who cheats on you than with someone who does not flush the toilet.

Environmentalists have a very conflicted relationship with their cars.
He who lives in our mind is near though he may actually be far away; but he who is not in our heart is far though he may really be nearby.
It was a good 15 or 20 years before anyone at Rand would be in the same room with me. They didn’t want the question raised, ‘What’s your relationship with Daniel Ellsberg?’ And not one of them wrote me a letter because they didn’t want a letter of theirs to show up in my trash – which the FBI had been going through.
The Web is now philosophical engineering. Physics and the Web are both about the relationship between the small and the large.
Ears are made not for hearing but for listening. Listening is an active skill, whereas hearing is passive. Listening is something that we have to work at – it’s a relationship with sound. And yet, it’s a skill that none of us are taught.
Although my parents both liked her, they just didn’t approve of a same-sex relationship. Nowadays, people say that you must let children be what they are, but when I was growing up, the parents defined the child – and my parents had a definite vision of how they wanted me to be.
I had never really dated. I’ve always been a relationship kind of person.
Part of our tradition as black women is that we are universalists. Black children, yellow children, red children, brown children, that is the black woman’s normal, day-to-day relationship. In my family alone, we are about four different colors.
We have peace with Israel. We’re actually the last man standing. So there is going to be immense pressure and people asking, ‘Why are we having this relationship when it’s not benefiting anybody?’ Obviously, my answer is you always benefit from peace.

My mum wants me to get married – and have children, of course. She’s met Gaga; we’ve been dating a while. We’re in a committed relationship, and I’m really happy in my relationship. I’m a very lucky guy. As far as having more of a domestic life and settling down into my relationship, we have to see what happens.
If you’re giving love and not receiving it, you’re not in the right relationship. If you’re receiving it and not giving it than you are taking advantage of the other person.
I’m 31 now. I think I’m beginning to understand what life is, what romance is, and what a relationship means.
My grandparents got married at a very young age, and a lot of what I think about marriage is based on their relationship. I watched them over the years and saw how they dealt with everything together, as a team.

The only secret behind why SidNaaz is still a thing is because it is genuine. We shared a pure relationship. I think people connect to that. The way he adored and showered love on me, I really felt nice about it. We both had same sort of feelings for each other. It was very cute.
Very early in life, it seemed to me that there was a relationship between the problems of the Negro people in America and the Jewish people in Russia, and that the Jewish people’s problems were worse than ours.
Crushes start out as that teenage phenomenon, life-affirming and cute, but as you wander into adulthood, they seem to end up more painful, harrowing, and uncertain, especially if you have just come out of the relationship you thought would finally, maybe, maybe be the one that stuck.
It is easy for Christians to have the false impression that once we have established a relationship with Christ, which we believe sets us right with God, the problems of life will somehow scoot away or they will slowly be removed from our lives.
Charles R. Swindoll

The relationship between me and President Mandela right at the beginning was not a very well-established relationship. It was based on two meetings.
F. W. de Klerk
Spirituality is not a formula; it is not a test. It is a relationship. Spirituality is not about competency; it is about intimacy. Spirituality is not about perfection; it is about connection. The way of the spiritual life begins where we are now in the mess of our lives.
I just have a relationship with my imagination. It’s like my friend, almost.
Waterpolo is my life. Our relationship is that of predetermination I’ll never be better at anything than waterpolo and that is why it is my duty to pursue this sport as long as I can, and to the best of my abilities.
It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is.

Sexuality is a big issue, but there are others – how much you commit to a relationship, to social obligation, to honesty and being honest with yourself.

Food sovereignty is an affirmation of who we are as indigenous peoples and a way, one of the most surefooted ways, to restore our relationship with the world around us.

Driving a cab is not really a nurturing type of relationship. You take people and they tip you, they may not tip you, you don’t know their names, they don’t care about you, you don’t care about them.
I’m enjoying dating. I’m single, though, I’m not in a relationship.
I did nothing to deserve God’s love; in fact, I was living as an orphan, without hope. Yet God chose to pursue a relationship with me, and through the death of his son Jesus, I was adopted into God’s family.
Steven Curtis Chapman
The basic discovery about any people is the discovery of the relationship between men and women.
Pearl S. Buck
The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.
I believe everyone has a soul mate that they can spend the rest of their life together.
The mentor-mentee relationship is ideally like that of the guru and disciple: motivated by the desire of the guru to impart knowledge to the disciple.

I spend a great deal of time with the President. We have a very close, personal, loyal relationship. I’m not, as they say, a potted plant in these meetings.
Rules help govern and steer a relationship along, so they’re good things. But they become bad things when they become the narrow gate though which the relationship must always pass. When this happens, the rules become the basis for the relationship and, in a sense, become a substitute for the relationship.
I lived Tom Girardi’s legal life with him first 10 years of our relationship. I went to every legal organization, every event – all of those groups he belonged to and those speeches he gave.

Robert Downey, Jr.

We must learn to regard people less in light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.
It takes two to make a relationship, but only one to screw it up.

If you didn’t like somebody, you just let ’em know it, and hopefully that would square ’em away. Not only would they critique me, get on my case, but basically it was that kind of relationship. It was always a learning, team-building relationship.
The beauty of a relationship is when you get used to a person; it is not sudden. It is just a process, and you don’t realise when love happens.
I can be in a beautiful, loving and caring relationship, but it can’t be 24×7 and 30 days a month. At the end of the day, I need my time alone.
I honestly believe you can never tell if a relationship is going to last. In my own marriage, which is going on 14 years, I don’t think of it as ‘I’m going to be with this person forever.’ Instead, I think of more like, ‘I’ll probably be with this person for the next six weeks. Then I’ll re-evaluate.’
Michael Ian Black
I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you.
The main thing experience has taught me is that one has to sort of hone their relationship to time, you know.

It was not a healthy marriage for long time. It was never about another man, it was about what my and Dennis’s relationship could not sustain.
For the United States to be a global leader, we have to have a very tight relationship with Europe. And we’ve held that relationship since 1949 when we established the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO. NATO is the bond. It’s a security bond.
I see when men love women. They give them but a little of their lives. But women when they love give everything.

The fact my relationship with my son is so good makes me forgiving of my father and also appreciative.

Hans Adolf Krebs
We all have something about ourselves that we’d change if we could in a perfect world, be it our body image, our financial status, our relationship, whatever. I wanted to talk about how nobody’s exempted from the realities of life and all those things.
Some people are your relatives but others are your ancestors, and you choose the ones you want to have as ancestors. You create yourself out of those values.
Folks, the most insidious part of this whole health care scheme is that all of these vast medical expenditures will become nothing more than government budget items. We individuals will no longer exist. The relationship between a government and citizen will change forever.
Looking back over the years, I realize the Bible isn’t magic, but it is corrective; it isn’t an answer book, it is a living book; it isn’t a fix-it book, it is relationship book. When I confront God’s word, I am confronted; when I read God’s word, it reads me; when I seek God’s presence, He seeks me.
Not to sound too Dr. Phil all of a sudden, but I think the key to survival is to embrace one’s past and to not run away from it. And to come to some sort of relationship with it or understanding of it.
I’m not one of these guys who’s constantly in a relationship, not at all.
You just got to remember that mine and Dana White’s relationship is like we’re a husband and wife. I do the man’s stuff around the house. I do the fighting, all the man’s stuff, and he does all the woman stuff – all the yapping.
When a person goes into a relationship emotionally needy, they are not going to have discernment in choosing people.
We all strive for balance, often moving to extremes to find ourselves somewhere in the middle where we can sustainably exist in optimal inspiration. Working toward balance takes a lot of ingredients. We need courage, reflection, attention, action, and a push-and-pull relationship between effort and relaxation.
I think it’s important to have closure in any relationship that ends – from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.
But in Japanese, there’s actually not much of a relationship between the music and the words.
I have worked with some of the most important players, like Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, Kaka, Zidane, but the best are easy to work with because they are so professional.

A healthy relationship is built on unwavering trust.
I’ve always been a slow starter. My first date was with a girl called Cessi. We had a beautiful relationship over the phone all summer, and then when we met, I couldn’t look her in the eye.
We cannot really love anyone with with whom we never laugh.
To marry unequally is to suffer equally.
Henri Frederic Amiel
Boxing? She’s like a woman. If you’ve never wooed her, never won her, you always look back wondering what would have happened had you had her. If you caught her and had a long relationship, you don’t really look back. Do I miss her? No, because I’ve had her, I’ve moved on.
Chris Eubank Sr.
In the commercial world, you have this problem that the amount of research you can do in a company is based on how well your current business is going, whereas there actually should be an inverse relationship: when things are going worse, you should do more research.
I felt a tremendous sadness for men who can’t deal with a woman of their own age.
The life of the community, both domestically and internationally, clearly demonstrates that respect for rights, and the guarantees that follow from them, are measures of the common good that serve to evaluate the relationship between justice and injustice, development and poverty, security and conflict.
Pope Benedict XVI

Robert Louis Stevenson

Men and women have strengths that complement each other.
Edwin Louis Cole
I introduce her as the love of my life everywhere that we go. She introduces me as her current husband. So you can see how the relationship kinda works here.
I have this idea of a Taiwan Consensus, which means people in Taiwan have to get together and form a consensus of their own and that they turn around to talk to the Chinese to form a cross-strait consensus so we can build a relationship on that consensus. And in my view, that is the right order to do things.
If you cannot inspire a woman with love of you, fill her above the brim with love of herself; all that runs over will be yours.
Charles Caleb Colton
Actually, I think my view is compatible with much of the work going on now in neuroscience and psychology, where people are studying the relationship of consciousness to neural and cognitive processes without really trying to reduce it to those processes.
Marriage is a very sacred institution and should not be degraded by allowing every other type of relationship to be made equivalent to it.
Salt’s relationship to flavor is multidimensional: It has its own particular taste, and it both balances and enhances the flavor of other ingredients.
In marriage, compromise nurtures the relationship.

Current psychological priesthoods ignore the fact that the profession of psychology was originated by Gustav Theodor Fechner, a physicist who recognized that the key to understanding human nature was the relationship between external stimuli and the brain.

We don’t develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.
Barbara De Angelis
Never trust a husband too far, nor a bachelor too near.

Jonathan Van Ness
When I got pregnant, I started singing again. It was my saving grace. I literally mean having this amazing human life, and our relationship in the sense of mother and child, redeemed my soul.

If it is true that we have a personal relationship with God, then that’s enough for me.
T Bone Burnett
I have to be in a relationship in order to be intimate. I’m not the one-night-stand kind of girl. Despite the rumors.

When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes.
Blockchain is really exciting technology because it’s actually providing both transparency but also agility in a contractual relationship that any organization should have.
Getting over someone is a grieving process. You mourn the loss of the relationship, and that’s only expedited by ‘Out of sight, out of mind.’ But when you walk outside and see them on a billboard or on TV or on the cover of a magazine, it reopens the wound. It’s a high-class problem, but it’s real.
It is an odd thing, owing life to pills, one’s own quirks and tenacities, and this unique, strange, and ultimately profound relationship called psychotherapy.
Kay Redfield Jamison
We want a fully comprehensive trade deal that reflects our deep, ongoing relationship, the friendship between our two countries, the fact that Australians want to come and live and work in Britain, and Brits want to come and live and work in Australia.
I feel our relationship to life, to the rest of the world, is very tenuous. It feels fleeting.
If you’re with someone, it’s because you’re moving in the same direction, and you both are looking for the same thing. Both of you have to share the same concept of what a relationship means.
We have to understand how the extremists got the way they are. Without that kind of understanding, we’d never really get to know them. I put in nothing about their childhoods. But what I have put in is stuff about the weird symbiotic relationship between us and them.
Perhaps because my relationship with my father went through such a long, bumpy time, it’s been very important for me to work to try to keep lines of communication open between my sons and myself to try to avoid my father’s mistakes. At least if you’re making mistakes, make different mistakes.
There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.

We all think that this relationship thing is a game out here. All I’m saying to women is, ‘Okay. If it’s a game, here are the rules that we play by.’
Love thou the rose, yet leave it on its stem.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
You hear about quality time a lot but I really think that quantity time with a person is really what strengthens a relationship. That’s when you really get to know somebody. You get to know their strengths and their weaknesses and that brings you closer. That’s what ‘Time Is Love’ is all about.
Justice is never given; it is exacted and the struggle must be continuous for freedom is never a final fact, but a continuing evolving process to higher and higher levels of human, social, economic, political and religious relationship.
A. Philip Randolph

Love comes when manipulation stops; when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.

Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.
I’m a huge fan of BioWare games. I think they do some of the best character-building. I mean, I have a relationship with Thane from ‘Mass Effect’ that is as vivid as any crush that I’ve had on a TV-show character.
Those who are truly contemporary are those who neither perfectly coincide with their time nor adapt to its demands… Contemporariness, then, is that relationship with time that adheres to it through a disconnection.

God gives us relatives; thank God, we can choose our friends.
My relationship with my body has changed. I used to consider it as a servant who should obey, function, give pleasure. In sickness, you realise that you are not the boss. It is the other way around.
What surprises me most about God is that the creator of the universe should want a relationship with me.
My off-camera friendship with Brock Lesnar has always been different than my off-camera friendship with CM Punk. But I could not tell you that I am closer to either one of them or either one of them is closer to me. It’s just a different relationship.
The family is very important. They make me feel good always because if I won, when I started to be famous, the relationship never changed with my friends and family.

Killing animals and eating meat have been significant components of human evolution that had a synergistic relationship with other key attributes that have made us human, with larger brains, smaller guts, bipedalism, and language.
I believe it matters how you treat people. I believe in Heaven. I don’t believe that this is it, and then we’re done. I have a lovely relationship with God, although when I’ve lost someone or I’ve seen a sick child, I’ve had conversations with Him in which I’ve had to ask, ‘How can that be right?’
Margot Livesey, my dear friend, reads all the drafts of what I write, and I read hers. We have an intense working relationship. I’ve been really lucky to know her. She’s a great reader and teacher as well as an astonishingly good writer.
Even with ‘Three Days of the Condor,’ I wanted to do a thriller. But I was still concentrating on the Faye Dunaway-Robert Redford relationship in that film.
I get a lot of comments from people that I’m just an ordinary bloke. They immediately feel they have a closer relationship with you; they relate to you.
To be honest, I deliberately tend not to post things like ‘I’m having a relationship’ or where I live. I’m a bit reluctant to keep this kind of information up to date because people are inclined to see things like that as statements, and I rather keep a little bit of privacy, if possible at all.
If you spend five minutes with your worst enemy – it doesn’t have to be about race, it could be about anything… you will find that you both have something in common. As you build upon those commonalities, you’re forming a relationship and as you build about that relationship, you’re forming a friendship.
Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
I have developed a very strong partiality for the dead: they don’t talk back, they don’t sue, and they don’t have angry relatives.

It is almost always a fault of one who loves not to realize when he ceases to be loved.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld

John Henrik Clarke
In the different voice of women lies the truth of an ethic of care, the tie between relationship and responsibility, and the origins of aggression in the failure of connection.
Self-reflection is so healthy. Journaling works for me – when I record the details of what I’m going through, whether it’s a relationship issue or negative thoughts, I can look back and see how far I’ve come. It makes me proud to see my progress and how I got through a bad situation.
My longest relationship with my first boyfriend was eight and a half years. We broke up a handful of times over those years, but he was my first love, I was his, and we were each other’s firsts.
Any friendship or relationship is about a language.
‘Frozen’ definitely isn’t about a man, but about the relationship between two sisters. At different times in our lives we find ourselves either more connected to or disconnected from the people in our family, and I think audiences will really be able to relate to that.
It’s impossible. You try to have any kind of relationship with your family, with a man, or with a friend, and you have to be on the phone and the Internet the entire time.
Laughter is an important part of a good relationship. It’s an immense achievement when you can move from your thinking that your partner is merely an idiot to thinking that they are that wonderfully complex thing called a loveable idiot. And often that means having a little bit of a sense of humour about their flaws.
Alain de Botton
Being a good mother is really so hard and so important, and it’s this thing that all people long for. Think of all the soldiers who cry out for their mothers on the battlefield as they die. It’s a primal relationship.
In a relationship you want to treat people the way you want to be treated.
I talk to my friends and, you know, they all seem to get relationships that aren’t right. You kind of want someone who is not at your beck and call but loves the idea of being in a relationship and what that entails.
The relationship between parents and children, but especially between mothers and daughters, is tremendously powerful, scarcely to be comprehended in any rational way.
Joyce Carol Oates
After the situation with Kursk submarine, I started looking at Mr. Berezovsky in a completely different way. For me, it was a turning point in our relationship. I think that he took a completely dishonorable position.
Take information technology. We have winners implementing CRM (customer relationship management systems) and losers implementing CRM. What mattered in technology is that the technology actually drives either cost reduction or superior strategy execution.
Is our desire for partnership just an evolutionary remainder, a Togetherness Delusion, where millions of women only think they need a relationship to be truly happy? Maybe. But you know what? That’s fine with me.
I took solace in my relationship with God who, along with my dog, was my best friend growing up.

At the time I perceived most religious men, particularly the pastors with all their talk about love, faith and relationship, as effeminate.
I’m Nigerian. I’m African. I have a lot to say. Apart from what I say, though, is the feeling. People can relate to that feeling. It’s a reciprocal relationship. They feed off me and I feed off them.

Barbara De Angelis
Once I graduated from university, I wanted to climb and be outdoors as much as possible. I worked as a part-time carpenter and kept up a relationship with The North Face. One thing led to another, and I’m lucky to be where I am now. It was a circuitous path with lots of adventure throughout.
Any relationship, I’m talking about even with your kids, when you got something they can relate to – both of y’all – it helps.
A record company used to be a very good thing, but they ended up soul-destroyingly trapping people in the accounting department. And you couldn’t get any further, and the heads of each department were changing all the time, so you couldn’t have any permanent relationship within the corporation.
Nothing reinforces a professional relationship more than enjoying success with someone.
But mostly, it’s a book about my relationship with my father.

I don’t want to be married to someone who feels inferior to my success or because I make more money than he does.
A relationship succeeds when obstacles are met with communication and resolution. A relationship flourishes when we take the beloved as our teacher. Shared goals create a transformative, interwoven path.

Have you ever loved somebody, loved her completely, but had to end the relationship for life reasons?
You’re born single, you die single, but why not being in a relationship is some special ‘single’ status, I don’t understand. Life is less stress being single, I have to admit.
The easiest kind of relationship for me is with ten thousand people. The hardest is with one.
I don’t have a relationship with Yoko. I’ve tried contacting her many times after John had died. She wouldn’t return any of my phone calls.

I think the reason my relationship works so well with my dad is that we can separate our tennis lives from our personal lives.
The beliefs concerning reincarnation have great ethical impact on human life and our relationship to the world.
We don’t put gender roles on our marriage and our relationship. If I’m working a lot and Cory’s home, he will put Cree to bed, and if dishes need to be washed, he will wash them. So it’s not like, ‘Oh, I’m going to wait until my wife gets home, and she’s going to be doing all that.’
I think that there is always a part of utopia in any romantic relationship.
Jealousy can even be good for love. One partner may feel secretly flattered when the other is mildly jealous. And catching someone flirting with your beloved can spark the kind of lust and romance that reignites a relationship.
My grandmother has dementia, and my mother is looking after her as her primary caregiver. Seeing their relationship has had a profound impact, seeing how tough it is for both of them and seeing how the roles change and how my mother has gone from being a daughter to being the mother.
Being able to go to someone’s house and have dinner with them and their family, being able to go see a movie with them, or go shopping, it makes you really care for someone and hope that they succeed. That means a lot in an on-court relationship. It creates trust.
C. J. McCollum
Working together, we can meet our shared goal to combat climate change. From harmonizing vehicle emissions standards to using our trading relationship to boost investment in clean energy, the actions the United States and Canada take together will help both nations meet international goals.

When you make his sandwiches, put a sexy or loving note in his lunch box.
I think you grow wherever God plants you. I hope I’m growing as a person of faith, as a Christian. That should be our number one objective this journey of life. That all starts with a personal intimate relationship with Christ and then being in prayer every single day about all of those things – being tenacious about it.
J. C. Watts
The only time a woman really succeeds in changing a man is when he is a baby.
It isn’t necessary to have relatives in Kansas City in order to be unhappy.
The main relationship in the whole series was the one between the camera and Fleabag. I had to convince myself that whoever was watching on the other side of the camera was instantly complicit with Fleabag and instantly a friend of hers.
The family only represents one aspect, however important an aspect, of a human being’s functions and activities. A life is beautiful and ideal or the reverse, only when we have taken into our consideration the social as well as the family relationship.
I think everyone understands grief, the journey it takes us on, whether it’s the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship, a disappointment. Some people don’t deal with it, the power of it. Some do. Some feel the weight of it and it informs their choices. I’ve had to open up to grief in different contexts.
The relationship between a manufacturer and his advertising agency is almost as intimate as the relationship between a patient and his doctor. Make sure that you can life happily with your prospective client before you accept his account.

Poetry is always slightly mysterious, and you wonder what is your relationship to it.
If we could establish a deep abiding relationship with nature, we would never kill an animal for our appetite; we would never harm, vivisect, a monkey, a dog, a guinea pig for our benefit. We would find other ways to heal our wounds, heal our bodies.
God doesn’t want us to have rigid rituals with Him. In the new covenant, He is more interested in having a relationship with us.
It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.
Norman Vincent Peale
Me and Vince are like cool, man. Good relationship with Vince, man, and I’ve been on a lot of trips with Vince, as far as with overseas, going to visit the military. And even at work, man, ideas, he’s open to a lot of people, everybody, pretty much. If you have a good idea, he wants you to go in there and prepare with it.
I think that the United States and the Philippines have always had a good relationship with each other. We were colonized by the Americans and we have their culture and our traditions even up to this day and I think that we’re very welcoming with the Americans. And I don’t see any problem with that at all.
The relationship between reader and writer is reciprocal in a way. We co-create each other. We are constantly emerging out of the relationship we have with others.

People were always like, ‘Oh my God, you’re going to be working with your girlfriend? Are you freaking out? Is that going to, like, destroy your relationship?’ I think it emboldened the relationship.
Love is the missing factor; there is a lack of affection, of warmth in relationship; and because we lack that love, that tenderness, that generosity, that mercy in relationship, we escape into mass action, which produces further confusion, further misery.
Redwoods flourish in fog, but they don’t like salt air. They tend to appear in valleys that are just out of sight of the sea. In their relationship with the sea, redwoods are like cats that long to be stroked but are shy to the touch.
So then, the relationship of self to other is the complete realization that loving yourself is impossible without loving everything defined as other than yourself.
For me, it’s about the way I carry myself and the way I treat other people. My relationship and how I feel about God and what He does for me, is something deeply personal. It’s where I came from, my family, I was brought up in a religious household and that’s very important to me.
Maybe the most that you can expect from a relationship that goes bad is to come out of it with a few good songs.
Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.
William Arthur Ward
It’s one of the hardest things in the world to sustain a monogamous relationship for many years. People out there who have been with their partners for 30 years or more – I salute you. But it’s just as hard to admit something isn’t working and then try to manage a civilised separation as best as you can.
When a relationship doesn’t work anymore, it’s terrible to stay with someone that you don’t love.
Relationships are eternal. The ‘separation’ is another chapter in the relationship. Often, letting go of the old form of the relationship becomes a lesson in pure love much deeper than any would have learned had the couple stayed together.
Who cares about the clouds when we’re together? Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.

When I was Prime Minister, it’s right – we had a close relationship – but that did not prevent me, when I believed the United States position was wrong, arguing against them.
Intersectionality is an analytic sensibility, a way of thinking about identity and its relationship to power. Originally articulated on behalf of black women, the term brought to light the invisibility of many constituents within groups that claim them as members but often fail to represent them.
Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
All human language draws its nature and value from the fact that it both comes from the Word of God and is chosen by God to manifest himself. But this relationship is secret and incomprehensible, beyond the bounds of reason and analysis.
You are a child of the sun, you come from the sun, and that is something true with the Earth also… your relationship with the Earth is so deep, and the Earth is in you and this is something not very difficult, much less difficult then philosophy.
Thich Nhat Hanh
An Internet ‘relationship’ doesn’t have to be catastrophically harmful to be inappropriate. Hurtful is bad enough.
Johnny once described our relationship by saying we were as close as two people could be without being married.

I think for any relationship to be successful, there needs to be loving communication, appreciation, and understanding.
We must not confuse religion with God, or technology with science. Religion stands in relationship to God as technology does in relation to science. Both the conduct of religion and the pursuit of technology are capable of leading mankind into evil; but both can prompt great good.
It’s one thing to have a relationship, to lay your hands on it, and another to make it continue and last. That’s something I haven’t talked about much in my comic strips, and it’s certainly something I’m interested in.

I’m not a relationship expert. I’m an expert on manhood.
To catch a husband is an art; to hold him is a job.
Simone de Beauvoir

The special relationship between the region and a regional celebrity means that people feel that they have a special investment in you.
Circumstance has no value. It is how one relates to a situation that has value. All true meaning resides in the personal relationship to a phenomenon… what it means to you.
God is the name people give to the reason we are here. But I think that reason is the laws of physics rather than someone with whom one can have a personal relationship. An impersonal God.
I am convinced that material things can contribute a lot to making one’s life pleasant, but, basically, if you do not have very good friends and relatives who matter to you, life will be really empty and sad and material things cease to be important.
I like being in relationship because of the comfort it provides.
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.
Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.
A relationship requires a lot of work and commitment.
Many people get into a relationship as a way to compensate for something they lack or hate within themselves. This is a one-way ticket to a toxic relationship because it makes your love conditional – you will love your partner as long as they help you feel better about yourself.
You have nothing if you’re texting a guy in a relationship. We can text six women a minute. We can text it and push ‘reply all.’ I mean, since we’re lying, we might as well lie to everybody.
It’s very important in a leadership role not to place your ego at the foreground and not to judge everything in relationship to how your ego is fed.
Ruth J. Simmons
Jews have a special relationship to books, and the Haggadah has been translated more widely, and reprinted more often, than any other Jewish book. It is not a work of history or philosophy, not a prayer book, user’s manual, timeline, poem or palimpsest – and yet it is all these things.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Every good relationship, especially marriage, is based on respect. If it’s not based on respect, nothing that appears to be good will last very long.
The true test of a relationship is traveling together.

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
Treasure your relationships, not your possessions.
Anthony J. D’Angelo
The people at the record company had asked me if I could write a song about my life, my relationship with God, and where I’m from. Well, I can’t write a song on purpose, my songs come in a moment of inspiration or desperation.
Billy Ray Cyrus
And on top of that, when we work together we have a wonderful working relationship we push each other we challenge each other we laugh 80% of the time that we are together we’re very fortunate.

The biggest piece is my family… From watching films like The Godfather on our dining room wall, to having a great relationship with my sibling. Or going on weekend trips with our cousins to the beach and eating all day… it’s been a crazy childhood; a ‘bohemian one’.
There is a myth that those who do humanitarian work have a saviour mentality, but the relationship is reciprocal.

What will support any relationship is clear, complete and conscious conversations when upsets or breakdowns occur.
The DJ still has the relationship with the people, I believe. I don’t know to call the DJ ‘the ambassadors’ or what, but we still are connecting the dots, getting the good stuff and passing it on to the people. DJs still have relevance, even with the technology that elevates the DJ beyond being a selector.
Ali Shaheed Muhammad
Through all the relationship stuff I’ve gone through in the past few years, I know there are fundamental differences in how men and women view sex and how they view their futures.

Real and true happiness is having a relationship with God and not what makes us happy.
I have never, ever argued about money with any of my producers because that is the kind of relationship and understanding I have with them.
Have gratitude for the things you’re discarding. By giving gratitude, you’re giving closure to the relationship with that object, and by doing so, it becomes a lot easier to let go.

Long-term relationships are an everyday choice. It’s harder to be in a marriage than it is to bounce from one relationship to the next.

My sister is a lesbian and I want her to have that same feeling. A civil partnership is not the same as marriage. She’s in a serious relationship with a girl I am obsessed with. I would love her to marry her girlfriend because I love her so much.
On the relationship side, if you teach people to respond actively and constructively when someone they care about has a victory, it increases love and friendship and decreases the probability of depression.

There’s a trick to the Graceful Exit. It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, a relationship is over – and to let go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its value.
A relationship isn’t going to make me survive. It’s the cherry on top.
I think you learn more about yourself in the context of a relationship than you can outside of it.

The heart of another is a dark forest, always, no matter how close it has been to one’s own.

When you look at Japanese traditional architecture, you have to look at Japanese culture and its relationship with nature. You can actually live in a harmonious, close contact with nature – this very unique to Japan.
