What is a friend? I will tell you it is someone with whom you dare to be yourself.

Nobody can teach you love. Love you have to find yourself, within your being, by raising your consciousness to higher levels. And when love comes, there is no question of responsibility. You do things because you enjoy doing them for the person you love. You are not obliging the person, you are not even wanting anything in return, not even gratitude. On the contrary, you are grateful that the person has allowed you to do something for him. It was your joy, sheer joy. Love knows nothing of responsibility. It does many things, it is very creative; it shares all that it has, but it is not a responsibility, remember. Responsibility is an ugly word in comparison to love. Love is natural. Responsibility is created by the cunning priests, politicians who want to dominate you in the name of God, in the name of the nation, in the name of family, in the name of religion -- any fiction will do. But they don't talk about love. On the contrary, they are all against love, because love is unable to be controlled by them. A man of love acts out of his own heart, not according to any moral code. A man of love will not join the army because it is his responsibility to fight for his nation. A man of love will say there are no nations, and there is no question of any fight.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.
The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're still alive.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.
In a great romance, each person plays a part the other really likes.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love, you want the other person.

The heart has its reasons which reason knows not of.
The world is filled with hidden love.
First open your mind to someone,then open your heart
Kindness is tenderness. Kindness is love, but perhaps greater than love. Kindness is good will. Kindness says, I want you to be happy.
If someone were to pay you $.10 for every kind word you ever spoke and collect $.05 for every unkind word, would you be rich or poor?

Every gift from a friend is a wish for your happiness...
A part of kindness consists in loving people more than they deserve.
Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving anything in return.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness.
Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.
Let there be nothing within thee that is not very beautiful and very gentle, and there will be nothing without thee that is not beautiful and softened by the spell of thy presence.
There is nothing that makes its way more directly to the soul than beauty.
Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame.
I pray Thee, O God, that I may be beautiful within.
Learning to love yourself first brings more joy and peace then trying to love someone else.
Nobody knows what you want except you. And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it. Wanting some other way to live is proof enough of deserving it. Having it is hard work, but not having it is sheer hell.
