„Мужчины играют дружбой, как футбольным мячом, и она остается цела. Женщины играют дружбой, как стеклянной вазой, и она разбивается.“

„Я не уверена, что учит только страдание. Иначе весь мир был бы мудрым, ведь страдает каждый. К страданию должны быть добавлены скорбь, понимание, терпение, любовь, открытость и готовность оставаться уязвимым. В надлежащих обстоятельствах соединение всех этих факторов может научить и привести к возрождению.“


„The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is being insincere.“ Gift from the Sea

„When you love someone, you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity - in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern.

The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now. Relationships must be like islands, one must accept them for what they are here and now, within their limits - islands, surrounded and interrupted by the sea, and continually visited and abandoned by the tides.“
Gift from the Sea

„Don't wish me happiness
I don't expect to be happy all the time...
It's gotton beyond that somehow.
Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor.
I will need them all.“
Gift from the Sea

„I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness, and the willingness to remain vulnerable.“ Gift from the Sea

„Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after.“ Gift from the Sea

„it takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeded.“


„The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is being insincere. That is why so much of social life is exhausting; one is wearing a mask. I have shed my mask.“ Gift from the Sea

„Him that I love, I wish to be free -- even from me.“

„Women need solitude in order to find again the true essence of themselves.“ Gift from the Sea

„For, literally translated, 'Since it must be so,' of all the good-bys I have heard is the most beautiful. Unlike theand, it does not try to cheat itself by any bravado 'Till we meet again,' any sedative to postpone the pain of separation. It does not evade the issue like the sturdy blinking. is a father's. It is - 'Go out in the world and do well, my son.' It is encouragement and admonition. It is hope and faith. But it passes over the significance of the moment; of parting it says nothing. It hides its emotion. It says too little. While('God be with you') andsay too much. They try to bridge the distance, almost to deny it. is a prayer, a ringing cry. 'You must not go - I cannot bear to have you go! But you shall not go alone, unwatched. God will be with you. God's hand will over you' and even - underneath, hidden, but it is there, incorrigible - 'I will be with you; I will watch you - always.' It is a mother's. Butsays neither too much nor too little. It is a simple acceptance of fact. All understanding of life lies in its limits. All emotion, smoldering, is banked up behind it. But it says nothing. It is really the unspoken good-by, the pressure of a hand, 'Sayonara.“ North to the Orient


„Only love can be divided endlessly and still not diminish.“

„Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now.“ Gift from the Sea

„The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach—waiting for a gift from the sea.“ Gift from the Sea

„I find there is a quality to being alone that is incredibly precious. Life rushes back into the void, richer, more vivid, fuller than before.“ Gift from the Sea
