June's quotes:
... on intimacy...

If one could be friendly with women, what a pleasure -- the relationship so secret and private compared with relations with men. Why not write about it truthfully?
- Virginia Woolf

I would venture to warn against too great intimacy with artists as it is very seductive and a little dangerous.
- Queen Victoria

INTIMACY, n. A relation into which fools are providentially drawn for their mutual destruction.
- Ambrose Bierce

My friends tell me I have an intimacy problem. But they don't really know me.
- Garry Shandling

When I am with you, we stay up all night. When you are not here, I cannot go to sleep. Praise God for these two insomnias and the difference between them.

~ Mevlana Rumi
13th century sufi poet and mystic
