So, on this blog we have constantly commented on what a healthy relationship is.

We have asked everyone who reads it to go out and promote a healthy relationship in the name of love.

Here are some quotes from some other people (with my comments added) of what love is, and what a healthy relationship is!

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” – Antoine St. De Exubery

Take away love, and our earth is a tomb. -Robert Browning

“In real love you want the other person’s good – Margaret Anderason

-Wow, isn’t this the definition of a healthy relationship?

“You know you are in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Ted Giesel

– And this is not just a section of your relationship, this si the whole thing. That is a healthy relationship.

“I love you, not only for what you are, But for what I am when I am with you.” – Roy Croft

– Such an experience of love and beauty. When you are in a healthy relationship, you are not thinking of just you and how you can be happy…but of the other person as well as you, and how you both can be happy.

“You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” – Sam Keen

–          Too truly accept a person for who they are, is so far into love…it is beautiful. But we must never accept violence, for violence is never love!

“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” – Robert Heinlien

–          Again, to see the love and pleasure of another as equal oer more than your own!

“True love begins when nothing is looked for in return.” – Antoine St. De Exubery

–          For when we love, we look for pleasure for our mate. And in a true healthy relationship…our mate looks for pleasure for us.

“Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness.” – Oliver Wendal Holmes

-And happiness is always without violence!

“From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.” – Anonymous

–          How beautiful…And no where is the other person less powerful or less of a person than one.

“The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.” – Sir Hugh Walpole

–          And in the end, when we say a healthy relationship…this is what we mean!
