Quotes by John Gray ...
"When a man can listen to a woman's feelings without getting angry and frustrated, he gives her a wonderful gift. He makes it safe for her to express herself. The more she is able to express herself, the more she feels heard and understood, and the more she is able to give a man the loving trust, acceptance, appreciation, admiration, approval, and encouragement that he needs." -- John Gray
"Men need to remember that women talk about problems to get close and not necessarily to get solutions." -- John Gray
"Love is magical, and it can last, if we remember our differences." -- John Gray
