JOHN STOCKTON, ON MEETING KARL MALONE:
"He’s just a country kid, and we’re in Salt Lake and I’m just a year into it [his career]. I said to him, ‘We could drive up into the mountains, that’s gorgeous. Or maybe we could…go to the zoo?’ And he said, ‘Zoo? Sounds good. Let’s go.’ So we had a beautiful afternoon there. Pretty peaceful.
He wasn’t very recognizable at that time and I certainly wasn’t and we walked all around the zoo unaccosted and enjoyed the day looking at the animals. We’ve been best of friends ever since. He’s a good man from a completely different area than I was and we both felt completely at ease talking to each other. It’s a relationship I’ve been really proud of for the past 30 years.”
The best part of having a relationship is getting to call the person or lay down next to them and tell them all the crazy things that happened to you all day long. And in the end that’s what it’s about, kids. It’s not about the sex, it’s not about the money that they give you or whatever. It’s not about how good-looking they are, it’s about, can they listen to you talk for hours and hours and hours about stupid shit that doesn’t matter. And if they can, then you’re meant to be together forever. Even if that means you have to call them 100 times, that’s okay. — Tegan Quin
"I have not stopped thinking about kissing you. Your mouth has consumed my thoughts, and the idea I may meet it once again is enough to kill me. The ever so taunting memory of your lips pressed to mine continues to play in my head. I have lost all cravings except to feel the soft curve of your lips against mine once again. I only dream of you and it seems I am going mad. I want you back. I am going mad"

It’s up to you to stop people from breaking your heart even more, people will say, “I promise to change” or “I changed” but in reality, no one changes. They might fake they have for a while, but sooner or later they go back to old habits. If that person already hurt you once, avoid the pain from happening again by removing “that” person from you life. Instead of wasting time in sadness, live times of happiness with those who make life better, not worse.
