“The only real security is not insurance or money or a job, not a house and furniture paid for, or a retirement fund, and never is it another person.  It is the skill and humor and courage within, the ability to build your own fires and find your own peace.” ~ Audrey Sutherland

“An intimate relationship does not banish loneliness.  Only when we are comfortable with who we are can we truly function independently in a healthy way and truly function within a relationship. Two halves do not make a whole when it comes to a healthy relationship: it takes two wholes.” – Patricia Fry
