It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
-- Sir Edmund Hillary
If you have love in your life it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don't have it, no matter what else there is, it's not enough.
All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest --never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.
