The Truth Quotes

“All too often, the things that we're the most resistant to are precisely what we need. And the things we're most scared to let go of are exactly the ones we most need to relinquish.”

The Truth

“Each woman is a wonderful world unto herself.”

The Truth

“Every woman wants the same thing in a relationship: to be adored.”

The Truth

“Every word, every step, every action is irreversible. If we step in front of a moving car, if we sign a contract we haven’t read, if we betray the person we love, the best we can do is try to clean up the mess. But no matter how hard we scrub, the stain on reality will never come out. The word you just read can never be unread.”

The Truth

“Loneliness is holding in a joke because you have no one to share it with.”

The Truth

“Most people seem to believe that if a relationship doesn't last until death, it's a failure. But the only relationship that's truly a failure is one that lasts longer than it should. The success of a relationship should be measured by it's depth, not by its length.”

The Truth

“Only when our love for someone exceeds our need for them do we have a shot at a genuine relationship together.”

The Truth

“Perhaps the people who hurt you the most when they leave are the ones you shouldn’t have been with anyway, because they do it without compassion.”

“People tend to talk about all the things that are going to happen in the future. They say, I’m going to be successful, or I’m going to be a big artist. That’s a mistake. When you set your achievement in the future, you are already putting it off. The future never comes. It will always remain the future, and you will always remain chasing it and waiting for it. You need to say, I am successful. You need to believe that so deeply that you are just waiting for the world to catch up.”
