Random Quote

When a successful author analyzes the reasons for his success, he generally underestimates the talent he was born with, and overestimates his skill in employing it.

Belief

 

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.
