New relationship quotes can help to make sense of the rollercoaster of emotions that new relationships often involve. When coasting from excitement and ecstasy to doubt and uncertainty, trying to keep a level head in new relationships makes it easier to enjoy the ride without getting bruised and battered.
Some new relationship quotes caution us to make sure that the arms we are throwing ourselves into belong to someone who is ready and willing to catch us.
“It's easy to fall in love. The hard part is finding someone to catch you.” Bertrand Russell
“You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover's arms can only come later when you're sure they won't laugh if you trip.” Jonathan Carroll
Other new relationship quotes endeavor to help us understand what love is and how important it is in our lives, when love begins, and how we know if it’s love that we are experiencing.
“Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.” Erica Jong
“You learn to like someone when you find out what makes them laugh, but you can never truly love someone until you find out what makes them cry.” Unknown
“It is difficult to know at what moment love begins; it is less difficult to know that it has begun.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.” Thomas Merton
“Love does not care to define and is never in a hurry to do so.” Charles du Bos
The next new relationship quotes provide guidance on the misperceptions that we often carry into relationships. These misperceptions include the idea that we can, or should be able to control the relationship or our partner, that by our sheer force of will, we can make things last ‘forever,’ when all we can ever truly do is to enjoy what is happening right now, and that we can expect the experience of love and romance to remain unchanging in intensity and nature.
“Love withers under constraints: its very essence is liberty: it is compatible neither with obedience, jealousy, nor fear.” Percy Bysshe Shelley
“They spoil every romance by trying to make it last forever.” Oscar Wilde
“All love shifts and changes. I don't know if you can be wholeheartedly in love all the time.” Julie Andrews
The following new relationship quotes offer thoughts on why certain relationships are formed, and what is important for helping them flourish and develop in a healthy way.
“There are couples a matchmaker would match every time - and couples who, for no rhyme or reason, rhyme.” Robert Brault
“It is the things in common that make relationships enjoyable, but it is the little differences that make them interesting.” Todd Ruthman
“Little kindness and courtesies are so important. In relationships, the little things are the big things.” Stephen R. Covey
“Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
In navigating the unknown waters of new relationships, it is important to remember that while you can gain clarity and perspective from the wisdom of others through sources such as new relationship quotes, or advice, the ultimate authority on how you should live and love is you.
Listen to what others have to say, if they are people that really know what they are talking about of course, but make your choices based on your own internal guidance. By learning to listen to, and trust the wisdom of the highest part of yourself, you will find that it becomes easier to know what is right for you, simply by the way it makes you feel.
If you feel that you could use some support and guidance in learning how to create and maintain healthy and happy relationships in your life, try relationship life coaching. Sometimes it just takes a new perspective, and some focused teamwork to begin breaking unhealthy or limiting patterns of thought or behavior that keep you from experiencing the love you want, deserve, and can have.
