about love:

"It might seem scary, but showing emotion and expressing your needs is how you build intimacy. And having high standards and the courage to maintain those ideals is how you make sure that only the best kind of relationships remain in your life. 
  Its the mark of a Master to no longer blame the other person, but instead to see the other person as a mirror of his or her own life. Its the mark of a Master to share his or her feelings, rather than blaming someone else for not meeting the needs that were never expressed in the first place. Its the mark of a Master who is strong enough to walk away from a broken and unfulfilled kind of love if his or her needs and emotions arent being seen. Its the mark of a Master to be able to also meet the needs of his or her partner."
