Relationships can be difficult to navigate. They can be funny and heartbreaking, sometimes at the same time. The art of maintaining a relationship requires skill, patience, caring, and forgiveness.

Purple is a popular shade for these quotes. Some of these quotes come from grunge music, the cl*ssic 1990s genre. Whether you are looking for quotes about the difficulties of relationships or about their joys, you will find the perfect quote here.
I always loved aesthetics. Not particularly fashion, but an idea of beauty.
