You mourn the loss of the relationship, and that’s only expedited by ‘Out of sight, out of mind.’ But when you walk outside and see them on a billboard or on TV or on the cover of a magazine, it reopens the wound. It’s a high-class problem, but it’s real. — Hank Azaria

I joined Bloomberg Television as an anchor in 2011 after spending fourteen years on Wall Street. In many ways, the industries are similar: it’s about relationship-building, trust, and problem solving. — Stephanie Ruhle

In England, it’s a rare thing to see a player smoking but, all in all, I prefer that to an alcoholic. The relationship with alcohol is a real problem in English football and, in the short term, it’s much more harmful to a sportsman.

I’ve had trouble being in relationships and writing. This has been a real problem for me. I don’t know if it’s because I’m not free to fantasize or create these fantasy things about other people. — Lucinda Williams

I’m Turkish-American; I was a freshman at Harvard in 1995 and 96. I did teach English in Hungary in the summer of 1996.

In our culture, many of us idealize love. We see it as some lofty cure-all for all of life’s problems. Our movies and our stories and our history all celebrate it as life’s ultimate goal, the final solution for all of our pain and struggle. And because we idealize love, we overestimate it. As a result, our relationships pay a price. — Mark Manson

I have no problem with Jurgen Klopp. In fact we have a great relationship, he transferred me from Mainz. — Loris Karius

To me, one of the big silver linings of the Simpson trial is the advances we’ve made in understanding domestic violence as a lethal problem.

The reality is that it’s very much a crime, and a very serious one. — Marcia Clark

Now, I admire The Sims as a game, but from a story viewpoint, there are two glaring problems. First, your relationship with those characters is like they’re bugs in a jar. There’s no empathy. And secondly, you’ve got this clunky, chemistry-set interface between you and them, with bars to show how tired or angry they are. It’s all tell not show. — Dave Morris

I have no problem with commitment – you can’t have a real relationship without it. I can flip on a switch in my brain, and even if the next Brad Pitt is standing next to me, I won’t look at him. But I can also turn that switch off, and then I collect attractive boys. — Megan Fox

I like the relationship between the master and the student. Each piece has new problems, and each is different. They’re all an indentured servitude. There’s that subjugation that you have to put yourself under. It’s a give and take. There is work involved, and during that time, the greatest things are revealed. — Mike Bidlo

I think if you’re going to be in a relationship with someone, you need to be able to share the responsibility, the knowledge, the worry. It’s not like it was when our parents or their parents were having lives where the mom just baked bread, and the husband worried about it, and the wife didn’t know there was any problem. — Laura Wasser

I have a healthy relationship with food. My problem is, as a comic, I eat dinner late. But I’ll have a smoothie for breakfast every morning, and I keep it pretty low-carb and healthy during the day. At night, I’ll have a basic protein, quinoa, and vegetables. — Amy Schumer

Certainly, I cannot say that my government’s relationship with Pakistan was free of problems. I think the control of terror is our primary concern. And Pakistan made promises it didn’t keep. — Manmohan Singh

My relationships with both my mother and father are good. We spent several difficult years hashing over the problems and the past, and worked out a fairly solid middle ground. I wouldn’t say my relationship with either of them – they’re no longer together – is exactly typical, but that would be difficult after all we went through. — Marya Hornbacher

I can’t show, let alone share, my emotions. In fact, I’ve kept it all locked up within myself all my life. Yeah, it’s a problem, especially when it comes to relationships with the people close to me. — Vijay Deverakonda

I think it is really important to indulge on the holidays, I think that we all deserve that; I think that the more you worry, the more it’s a problem. I think everyone’s relationship with food is all about giving your body what it wants and what it needs. I think indulging is good and working out, too, for sure! — Martha Hunt

It is easy for Christians to have the false impression that once we have established a relationship with Christ, which we believe sets us right with God, the problems of life will somehow scoot away or they will slowly be removed from our lives. — Charles R. Swindoll

All relationships are a learning experience, even ones you continue to be in. If you don’t see them as that, then that’s a problem. — John Krasinski

The longer you get in a relationship, the harder it becomes to confront problems. — Andrew Haigh

I have no problem with it. I don’t look on homosexuality as an aberration. It’s just they way they’re born, and how could any relationship between two people in a committed relationship be wrong, regardless of gender? — Andrea Thompson

The classic problem in a relationship is a person trying to control the other person. People just want to conquer somebody. — Julia Holter

I’m genuine and I’m available. I want people to be at their best. I want them to love and be loved to their fullest ability. My friends call me their relationship nanny, so we have a good time working through problems. Now, I don’t claim to be an expert, but I am a woman who has been through everything. — Niecy Nash

As far as I can see there are no problems with people in our band as far as the relationships go anyway. — Adam Rich
