“In relationships, one person is typically red or blue. I am red; fire engine, fire truck, a Ferrari, lead, follow or get the heck out of the way… Someone else (say, your mate) might be more blue; a quiet storm, the passenger of the car, not the driver, the ocean, the sky — the coolness of quiet strength. Figure out your lane. Understand that every good marriage is made of constructive friction… Only through constructive friction do we grow.”

John Hope Bryant, with early inspiration from friend Kevin Ross.
