“I’ve always heard the advice ‘Give 60% and take 40%.’ For the longest time I hated it; I’m naturally giving, and it led to me feeling emotionally taken advantage of. Now, it makes a lot of sense.

“There’s a quote from François VI, Duc de La Rochefoucauld that goes: ‘Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and blows up the bonfire.’ This is absolutely true.
