We adore this “short and to the point” Nick Hornby quote from the movie (and book!) High Fidelity!

“You have to work at relationships. You can’t just walk out on them every time something goes wrong.”

Or if you’re looking for something a little longer, try this quote from This is How by Augusten Burroughs, the ending of which is shown here…

“But. If you meet somebody and they love you when you are your true, awful, not-ready-yet, boring, not cool enough, not handsome enough, not pretty enough, too fat, too poor self? And if you love them back so much it makes you calm? And they have flaws and you do not mind a single one of them? That means you get yourself to the church and you pull one of those priests out of bed and you have him cast one of those wedding spells on you. Because if you found that, you found IT.”
