The deepest moments of intimacy occur when you're not talking.

PATRICIA LOVE, O Magazine, Feb. 2007

Be courteous to all but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence; true friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to appellation.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter, Jan. 15, 1783

Intimate relationships cannot substitute for a life plan. But to have any meaning or viability at all, a life plan must include intimate relationships.

HARRIET LERNER, attributed, Words of Women: Quotations for Success

The married are those who have taken the terrible risk of intimacy and, having taken it, know life without intimacy to be impossible.

CAROLYN HEILBRUN, Ms. Magazine, Aug. 1974
