- Gordon Atkinson

- Sophy Burnham

- John Lennon

“ Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens. ”

- J.R.R. Tolkien

“ I think if I've learned anything about friendship, it's to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you.

- Jon Katz

- Edgar Allan Poe

“ If he’s not calling you, it’s because you are not on his mind. If he creates expectations for you, and then doesn’t follow through on little things, he will do same for big things. Be aware of this and realize that he’s okay with disappointing you. Don’t be with someone who doesn’t do what they say they’re going to do. If he’s choosing not to make a simple effort that would put you at ease and bring harmony to a recurring fight, then he doesn’t respect your feelings and needs. “Busy” is another word for “asshole.” “Asshole” is another word for the guy you’re dating. You deserve a fcking phone call. ”

- Greg Behrendt
