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.
Never build your emotional life on the weaknesses of others.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
If a thing loves, it is infinite.
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.
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
We are not held back by the love we didn't receive in the past, but by the love we're not extending in the present.
This is the true measure of love, When we believe that we alone can love, That no one could ever have loved so before us, And that no one will ever love in the same way after us.
The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can ever end.
The extent of your consciousness is limited only by your ability to love and to embrace with your love the space around you, and all it contains.
All I am, or can be, I owe to my angel mother.
To find yourself, think for yourself.
Nothing can be loved or hated unless it is first understood.
Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.
There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.
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
We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love.
When you love you should not say, God is in my heart, but rather, I am in the heart of God. and think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Perfect love is the most beautiful of all frustrations because it is more than one can express.
