If only it were so easy
"Lovers' quarrels are soon mended" is the caption on this postcard from Russia. Apparently all you do is write a long letter. It set me off down on a search for quotes about quarrels and it seems there is no consensus: some have a more positive outlook than others. Just like people really.
Quarrel? Nonsense; we have not quarreled. If one is not to get into a rage sometimes, what is the good of being friends? ~ George Eliot
Quarrels end, but words once spoken never die. ~ African Proverb
Quarrels would not last long if the fault was only on one side. ~ François de la Rochefoucauld
The truest joys they seldom prove,
Who free from quarrels live;
'Tis the most tender part of love,
Each other to forgive. ~ John Sheffield
The quarrels of lovers are like summer showers that leave the country more verdant and beautiful. ~ Susanne Curchod Necker
