How often have you been in a long distance relationship and all you can think about is that one special person?
Maybe you spend your nights chatting on the phone, or sending text messages to each other.
On one hand its wonderful having connected with someone at this level. On the other, it’s excruciating being so many miles apart.
Today’s long distance relationship quotes are all about the distance you spend apart from each other yet feeling so close.
It takes a lot of trust to be in a long term relationship with someone and spend weeks even months apart without ever wondering if you should worry. This sense of knowing and understanding your partner is very different than today’s fleeting superficial encounters. Relationships often break up if a person has to move a few hours away. It’s safe to say a relationship built on trust is a relationship built on solid foundation.
“Distance means so little when someone means so much.” –Anonymous
“Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great.” – Roger de Bussy
Roger de Bussy was a French memoirist in the 1600’s. Serving many years in battle while having a wife at home gave him a chance to think about love. Although controversial during his time Roger de Bussy was fiercely passionate and often times intimidated his generals with his ways. His wife passed away leaving him heartbroken.
His words have always stood the test of time as couples find great love can be strengthened by the time spent apart from each other. While those who with weak love quickly have their bonds broken with just the thought of spending time away from each other.
It makes you realize how rare it is to have that bond in today’s day and age considering how fickle people can be.
I’ll leave you with one last and probably the most famous quote of all relating to strengthening of love through distance:
“Distance makes the heart grow fonder.” – Thomas Haynes Bayly
Who was Bayly?
Thomas Haynes Bayly was a famous English poet from the late 1700’s and mid 1800’s. After encountering an early disappointment with a lover he began traveling and following his passion in writing. It wasn’t until much later after marrying the daughter of a wealthy Irish man that he began writing some of his famous works.
That’s it for long distance relationship quotes for today. Hope you enjoyed them, more to come tomorrow!
