People don`t change, but they can learn to behave differently.

Marriage is the chance to put away the trappings of a single life and concentrate on making one good thing work really well.

This world is so devoid of courtesy, I never mind receiving a little, even if it`s misplaced.

Death is a fundamental human necessity, a solitary passage into the unknown.

Your own life is plenty hard without complicating it with that of another.

I don`t think falling in love has much to do with the worth of the object of love.

All relationships fail until you find the right one. It’s inevitable. The failure of a relationship to lead to marriage does not mean you are unworthy or unattractive.

It is better not to be married than to be married unhappily. Women do not need to be married to have rich, fulfilled lives.

There`s very little point carrying on a conversation with someone who is absolutely convinced you are wrong and bad.

Sometimes, instead of going down the road less taken, you just charge right down the beaten path.

We can`t leave this world without leaving a lot of detritus behind. We never go out as cleanly as we come in; and even when we come in, there`s the afterbirth.

People who eavesdrop seldom hear good about themselves, right? An old adage, and a true one.

I did not believe in the underlying goodwill of men or the unspoken sisterhood of women.

It was one of God`s mysterious imbalances, that men are stronger than women. My grandmother told me it was his way of balancing the scales, since women are tougher and more resilient.

I always felt I had so many weaknesses myself that the last thing I should do was point out other people`s flaws to them.
