Don't cry for a man who's left you. The next one may fall for your smile. -- Mae West
A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself--to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart. -- Leo F. Buscaglia
Having someone wonder where you are when you don't come home at night is a very old human need. -- Margaret Mead
Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand. -- Emily Kimbrough
Oh, the comfort--the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person--having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. -- Dinah Craik
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. -- Oprah Winfrey
In the coldest February, as in every other month in every other year, the best thing to hold on to in this world is each other. -- Linda Ellerbee

The only real security in a relationship lies neither in looking back in nostalgia, nor forward in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now. -- Anne Morrow Lindbergh
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
It can be difficult to avoid illnesses during the winter months. Even more challenging is trying to stay healthy when traveling by plane. The dry cabin air, close proximity to other people, and the stress of travel can all contribute to the likelihood of contracting a cold or the flu. There are some steps you can take, however, to help keep you from coming down with a bug. Next time you pack your bags for a flight, keep these tips in mind.
- Drink about eight ounces of water or juice for every hour you fly. Sipping fluids over the course of the flight is more helpful than downing a large quantity at the start. This can help with the low humidity in the cabin environment. Avoid caffeinated drinks and alcohol, which can dehydrate you. It may also be helpful to use eye drops for dry eyes, especially for contact wearers.
- Many airlines now use filters that remove most of the bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants in the airplane's air. However, there are still plenty of bugs floating around. To avoid them, bring your own lightweight blanket and cover for the pillow.
- Wash your hands as often as possible. This is still the best way to remove bacteria and viruses from your hands. It is especially important to do this after you've touched common areas of the plane, like the lavatory, magazines, or arm rests. If you are unable to wash your hands with soap and water, use a hand sanitizing gel. Once you land and exit the plane, take the time to wash your hands one more time in the airport restroom.
- If you are sick, it is best not to fly. Not only can you spread your cold or flu to other passengers, but the environment in the plane's cabin can significantly increase your symptoms. This is especially true if you have sinus, nasal, or ear congestion.
