The Quotable Libra

Excerpt from Relationships Chapter:

Libra BookLibra Trait: Committed

Libra stays committed to close relationships. You do whatever it takes to maintain the all-important union. The previous section lists Librans entering series of relationships in search of the perfect one. The more typical Librans enjoy one strong lifetime partnership as shown in the table below.

The worst reconciliation is better than the best divorce.
     Cervantes, born 10/9/1547

Remember ... three little words: "I was wrong."
     Charlton Heston, born 10/4/1923

Do I ever think of divorce? Never! Murder? All the time!
     Joyce Brothers, born 10/20/1928

Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.
     Ursula Le Guin, born 10/21/1929

We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
     John Lennon, born 10/9/1940

Divorce can't be an option. If you have the option, one day that person is going to make you want a divorce.
     Will Smith, born 9/25/1968

Libra Trait: Indecision

Being a Libra, I was waffling over whether or not to take him up on his offer.
     Wendy Wasserstein, born 10/18/1950

Back and forth go the Scales. Continued weighing and revaluation make Libra the most indecisive sign of the zodiac. You find it difficult to finish and move on. Quarterback Brett Favre (10/10/1969) earned headlines and jokes for his annual indecision about retiring from professional football, with his responsiveness to teammate pleas perhaps leading to one return too many. Other Libran sports figures who returned after retirement include Mario Lemieux (10/5/1965), Martina Navratilova (10/18/1956), Martina Hingis (9/30/1980) and announcer Keith Jackson (10/18/1928). Some Librans can't decide about marriage; George C. Scott (10/18/1927), Marie Osmond (10/13/1959) and Jean-Claude Van Damme (10/18/1960) remarried the same person after getting divorced.

One man, two loves. No good ever comes of that.
     Euripides, born 9/23/480 BC

As the sharp admonition and command
From heaven had shaken him awake, he now
Burned only to be gone, to leave that land
Of the sweet life behind. What can he do? How tell
The impassioned queen and hope to win her over?
What opening shall he choose? This way and that
He let his mind dart, testing alternatives,
very one.
     Virgil, born 10/15/70 BC

The man who insists upon seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides.
     Henri Amiel, born 9/27/1821

"Are you very much in love with him?" he asked. She did not answer for some time, but stood gazing at the landscape. "I wish I knew," she said at last. He shook his head. "Knowledge would be fatal. It is the uncertainty that charms one. A mist makes things wonderful."
     Oscar Wilde, born 10/16/1854

Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.
     T.S. Eliot, born 9/26/1888

I have never stated my belief in concrete terms because almost every element of my nature has been opposed to the hard framework, the finality, of formulation.
     Thomas Wolfe, born 10/3/1900

When we are not sure, we are alive.
Graham Greene, born 10/2/1904
