Every time you feel the need to blame someone for a painful experience, but you choose consciously not to act on that need, you take a step toward love.
This, I think, is what love is: taking it all in, hoping for the best. Admiring the lake’s shimmering surface and unknown depths. Building a bank of memories, and cherishing them all equally.
If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can love other people so much better.
The most curative thought in the world is the thought of love.
Love is a fabric which never fades, no matter how often it is washed in the water of adversity and grief.
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully!
Loving someone is about giving, not receiving.
It is not how much we do, but how much love we put into doing it.
Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth.
If you love, you get love back, and that’s just a simple basic truth. If you are loved, it is because you love. It’s like a mirror. We get back what we give out.
At the center of religion is love. I love you and I forgive you. I am like you and you are like me. Everything in our life should be based on love.
