David Gurteen's comments: I watched the film Nowhere in Africa on a plane trip and jotted down this quote from the movie. In it Max, Jettel's father-in-law says this to her about his son.
It resonated with something I have long felt - that in a relationship the one who loves more puts themselves at a disadvantage and is vulnerable.
Its a problem but to my mind is part of the price of loving more. It could not be any other way.
It is similar to this quote from the film Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.
I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.
If you love quotations as much as I do then you may wish to register to have a quote e-mailed to you once a week or more frequently by clicking on the button below and completing the form.
