Words of Wisdom

“Marriage is three parts love and seven parts forgiveness of sins.” 
– Lao Tzu, philosopher in ancient China

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”
 – Carl Jung, Swiss psychiatrist and the founder of analytical psychology

“When you struggle with your partner, you are struggling with yourself. Every fault you see in them touches a denied weakness in yourself.”
 – Deepak Chopra, Indian-born American physician and author

“Human nature dictates that it is virtually impossible to accept advice from someone unless you feel that that person understands you. So the bottom-line rule is that, before you ask your partner to change the way he or she drives, eats, or makes love, you must make your partner feel that you are understanding.”
– Dr. John Gottman

“The great myth in our culture is that compatibility is the grounds for a relationship—actually, compatibility is grounds for boredom. Incompatibility makes for a dynamic, powerful, growing, exciting relationship. But this comes with a cost and a benefit—because it is the context for most growth and ultimate happiness.”
– Dr. Harville Hendrix
