When you want to be the best learn from those who have excelled. Here are quotes from the greatest sages of our time that guide and shed light on the mystery of successful love and relationships

“The secret of attraction is to love yourself. Attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. They are open to gestures of love. They think about love, and express their love in every action. They know that love is not a mere sentiment, but the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe.” —Deepak Chopra

“That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending – performing. You get to love your pretense. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act – and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.” —Jim Morrison

“What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined… to strengthen each other… to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories.” —George Eliot

“Love is like the truth, sometimes it prevails, and sometimes it hurts.” —Victor M. Garcia Jr.

“At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.” —Plato

“People who do not understand you will never settle for any proof, and people who appreciate you do not need any proof. “ —Seth (Jane Roberts)

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” —Carl Jung

“What is most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine.” —Susan Sontag

“Have the courage to be sincere, clear and honest. This opens the door to deeper communication all around. It creates self-empowerment and the kind of connections with others we all want in life. Speaking from the heart frees us from the secrets that burden us. These secrets are what make us sick or fearful. Speaking truth helps you get clarity on your real heart directives.” —Sara Paddison

“Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are – chaff and grain together – certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.” —Dinah Craik

“When you like someone, you like them in spite of their faults. When you love someone, you love them with their faults.” —Elizabeth Cameron

 

“People change and forget to tell each other.” —Lillian Hellman

“If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. And if they don’t, they never were” —Kahlil Gibran

“Love and concern for all are not things some of us are born with and others are not. Rather, they are results of what we do with our minds: We can choose to transform our minds so that they embody love, or we can allow them to develop habits and false concepts of separation.” —Sharon Salzbert

“Good friendships are fragile things and require as much care as any other fragile and precious thing.” —Randolph S. Bourne

“The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.” —Oscar Wilde

“If someone does not smile at you, be generous and offer your own smile. Nobody needs a smile more than the one that cannot smile to others.” —Dalai Lama

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” —Maya Angelou
