One of my favorite authors is Tom Robbins. He's one of the only authors whose prose makes me totally stop and he just read my mind and perfectly phrased everything I was thinking. I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes.

“Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won't adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words 'make' and 'stay' become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free.”

I centered my wedding vows around this quote so it has a special place in my heart.

"You disrupted the predictable pattern of my life, and although uncertainties and changes can be uncomfortable, a life is only a paper puppet show without them."

I read this on a plane actually, and instantly wrote down the quote to share with Robbie later.

"We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love."

Need I say more?

“When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on--series polygamy--until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.”

A good eye-opener for any relationship.
