To strengthen the body’s muscles, exercise; the mind’s muscles, read; the heart’s muscle’s, laugh; and the soul’s muscles, love.
The mind shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s wisdom; the heart, in proportion to one’s courage; and the soul, in proportion to one’s love.
Many of us humans have a hard time with understanding one simple truth: the surest way to get love is to start giving love to others. Often, when we desperately need some companionship, understanding and warmth from those who are around us, we chose to blame, shout, criticize, accuse, insult and set ultimatums. But in reply, we only encounter with cold walls of estrangement which was diligently built by our own efforts, farcical walls and fences.
When did you first fall in love?I think, I first fell in lovewhen I was in fifth gradewith this boy who kept his glass ruler in the sunlight and made rainbows on my desk with it.
It is because of pain that you value pleasure, sorrow that you value joy, despair that you value hope, war that you value peace, and hate that you value love.
Love has turned many into poets; pain has turned many into artists; charity has turned many into pacifists, and anger has turned many into activists.
To change your life, love yourself. To change your community, love others. To change the world, love everyone.
To appreciate pleasure some had to experience pain, to appreciate joy some had to experience sorrow, to appreciate love some had to experience heartache, and to experience freedom some had to experience fear.
One who is wise is rich, one who is virtuous is wealthy, one who is happy is affluent, and one who is loving is prosperous.
You are not lonely if joy is within you, not empty if truth is within you, not poor if love is within you, and not insignificant if God is within you.
Regard those who respect you.Esteem those who honor you.Cherish those who love you.Reward those who adore you.
Love in your mind can be felt by some, love in your heart can be felt by many, but love in your soul can be felt by all.
To appreciate pleasure, someone had to experience pain; to appreciate joy, some had to experience sorrow; to appreciate love, some had to experience heartache; to appreciate freedom, some had to experience fear.
Truth is straight like a line. Virtue is firm like a wall. Wisdom is tall like a mountain. Love is wide like an ocean.
Learn, because life is ahead of you. Live, because death is before you. Listen, because wisdom is all around you. Love, because God is inside of you.
