We work in the dark - we do what we can - we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion, and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.

If there is an atom to relationships, I think it's this:

Expressed belief in the other person.
Whether it's friendships, couples, or family ties, the one thing most attractive and ensuring of longevity is, after a lot of consideration, expressed belief.

I think this is true, although I've usually reduced it down to expressions of respect and sincere appreciation. The research and surveys supporting this idea in various ways usually use these terms as well. Interestingly, in that research, these things tend to show up higher in the hierarchy of needs for men than women, so I usually include that in my evaluation of cultural trends and consequences.
