Other People's Words

Sticks and stones are hard on bones
Aimed with angry art,
Words can sting like anything
But silence breaks the heart.
~Phyllis McGinley

To know when to go away and when to come closer is the key to any lasting relationship.
~Doménico Cieri Estrada

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.
~Flavia Weedn

Sometimes you have to get to know someone really well to realize you're really strangers.
~Mary Tyler Moore

Why do people persist in a dissatisfying relationship, unwilling either to work toward solutions or end it and move on? It's because they know changing will lead to the unknown, and most people believe that the unknown will be much more painful than what they're already experiencing.
~Anthony Robbins

Never assume that the guy understands that you and he have a relationship.
~Dave Barry

It is only when we no longer compulsively need someone that we can have a real relationship with them.
~Anthony Storr

People change and forget to tell each other.
~Lillian Hellman

In the end, who among us does not choose to be a little less right to be a little less lonely.
~Robert Brault
