Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
Where love rules, there is no will to power, and where power predominates, love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
If I love you, what business is it of yours?
Work is love made visible. And if you can't work with love, but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of the people who work with joy
I don't think anything is forever, but when my kids tell me they love me, that's forever.
A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.
Love is too young to know what conscience is.
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns it calls me on and on across the universe.
I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.
The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space
Never pretend to a love which you don't actually feel, for love is not ours to command.
We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love.
Can there be a love which does not make demands on its object?
Grief and sadness knits two hearts in closer bonds that happiness ever can; and common sufferings are far stronger than common joys.
A woman should soften but not weaken a man.
Love and work are the cornerstones of our humanness.
Love does not alter the beloved, it alters itself.
In the absence of love, we began slowly but surely to fall apart.
There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
To love for the sake of being loved is human, but to love for the sake of loving is angelic.
If you don't love yourself, you cannot love others. You will not be able to love others. If you have no compassion for yourself then you are not able of developing compassion for others.
