Raymond Carver
 Intimacy Quotes

“Love isn’t just for the things I came to benefit from you; it’s beyond that, it is that, my heartbeat and yours become enjoined together forever”.


“Intimacy is not something that just happens between two people; it is a way of being alive. At every moment, we are choosing either to reveal ourselves or to protect ourselves, to value ourselves or to diminish ourselves, to tell the truth, or to hide. To dive into life or to avoid it. Intimacy is making the choice to be connected to, rather than isolated from, our deepest truth as that moment.”

– Geneen Roth

 “Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone and finding that it is okay with them”

Alain De Botton

 “Intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them when you stand in front of them and their response is ‘you’re safe with me, that’s intimacy.”

Taylor Jenkins Reid

“Let’s meet in our dreams tonight.”

 Intimacy Quotes

 “There are no accidental meetings between souls.”


“Intimacy is not who you let touch you. Intimacy is who you text at 3 a.m. about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back on your mind, no matter how distracted you are.”


“A girl is happiest when she knows that you make her your everything, in front of everyone, every time.”


“Intimacy is not just physical; it is the deep bond of knowing.”


 “Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone — and finding that that’s ok with them.”

— Alain De Botton

“I don’t crave an intimacy that involves a touch of a hand, but instead one that causes a flame to burn in my soul.”


 “I crave you in the most innocent form. I crave to say goodnight and give you forehead kisses and to say that I adore you when you feel at your worst. I crave you in ways where I just want to be next to you and nothing more or less.”


True intimacy is a human constant.  People of all types find it equally hard to achieve, and equally precious to hold.  Age, education, and social status make little difference here; even genius does not presuppose the talent to reveal one’s self completely and completely absorb one’s self in another personality.  Intimacy is to love what concentration is to work:  a simultaneous drawing together to attention and release of energy.”

Robert Grudin

“The whole point of intimacy is to serve each other in growth and love, hopefully in better ways than we can serve ourselves.  Otherwise, why engage in intimacy if your growth and love are served more by living alone?  Intimacy is about growing more than you could by yourself, through the art of mutual gifting.”

David Deida.

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”

John Joseph Powell, 

“Physical intimacy isn’t and can never be an effective substitute for emotional intimacy.”

“Real intimacy is a sacred experience.  It never exposes its secret trust and belonging to the voyeuristic eye of a neon culture. Real intimacy is of the soul, and the soul is reserved.”

John O’donohue

“I wonder if this is how people always get close: they heal each other’s wounds; they repair the broken skin.”

Lauren Oliver

“It’s not time or opportunity that is to determine intimacy; it is disposition alone. Seven years would be insufficient to make some people acquainted with each other, and seven days are more than enough for others”.

Jane Austen.
