Here are eight relationship quotes to inspire and help you build strong, loving bonds that last your lifetime: make friends, find your life partner, draw close to God. The quotes were all taken from the book, Unique: Winning with Extraordinary Results (author: Oluwasanmi Aladeyelu; editor: Ursula Lang).
"How do you treat your friends, your subordinates, even the waiter at a restaurant? If we decide to make you the standard by which others are measured, can we be very sure that we will not be living in a continent of great dwarfs? How credible are your standards?"
"If you are easily forgotten, it may be because you don’t maximize the contacts you make by the impressions you leave behind. Give them a reason to think about you after you’ve said goodbye."
"Be a person who adds value into the lives of others. This is what makes you significant."
"Don’t waste your time babbling, when there are so many important things to say."
"Don’t just slip into a relationship with someone who happened to show up around the corner. You need to make sure that what you get is what God gives. Don’t be so crazy for love that you jump at every offer the world throws at you."
"Many today still make the same mistake that Jacob did. They are so much in love with 'Rachel' that they can’t wait to go on a honeymoon with 'Leah'. Don’t be like Jacob, who did not check out Laban’s package for him. He just took it and went on!"
"Communication is the lifeline of every relationship; if you don’t have communication with God, you don’t have power to guard against error, deception and the forces of darkness. You need to start talking to God today."
"There is a picture God holds very dear to His heart about you and me; it looks very different from all the mess we have made out of being the non-complying and ungodly “me”. We must aspire to be who God says we are. Neither what the world has to say about us nor the descriptions we make out for ourselves will do in our quest for genuine self-actualization."
"The most important thing in life is not human pursuits, what we want to be for ourselves or for God. The most important thing is that we enjoy unbroken fellowship with God. Stay tuned! Nothing matters more than His friendship."
