Laughter is the closest distance between two people.
The quickest path to self-destruction is to push away the people you love.
Love is when you don't have to be with another person to touch their heart!
We have become terribly vulnerable, not because we suffer but because we have separated ourselves from each other. A patient once told me that he had tried to ignore his own suffering and the suffering of other people because he had wanted to be happy. Yet becoming numb to suffering will not make us happy. The part in us that feels suffering is the same as the part that feels joy.
Some relationships just don't work out, no matter how bad both parties might want them to. Sometimes time, distance, and circumstances get in the way. And sometimes we have a purpose for our lives that couldn't be fulfilled inside the bounds of that relationship.

The years teach much which the days never know.
I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
It doesn't work to leap a twenty-foot chasm in two ten-foot jumps.
