Quotes of Gary Chapman
- – “Forgiveness is not a feeling; it is a commitment.”
- – “Real love” – “This kind of love is emotional in nature but not obsessional. It is a love that unites reason and emotion. It involves an act of the will and requires discipline, and it recognizes the need for personal growth.”
- – “People tend to criticize their spouse most loudly in the area where they themselves have the deepest emotional need.”
