To love someone deeply Gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply Gives you courage.

Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense.
To love, for us men, is to clasp one woman with our arms, feeling that she lives and breathes just as we do, suffers as we do, thinks with us, loves with us, and, above all, sins with us.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.
I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.
Being willing to change allows you to move from a point of view to a viewing point -- a higher, more expansive place, from which you can see both sides.
We cannot become what we need to be, remaining what we are.
All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of your grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves.
Ability without honor is useless.
There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.
How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? Every part of the earth is sacred to my people.
Friendship is held to be the severest test of character. It is easy, we think, to be loyal to a family and clan, whose blood is in your own veins. Love between a man and a woman is founded on the mating instinct and is not free from desire and self-seeking. But to have a friend and to be true under any and all trials is the mark of a man!
Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use.
A woman's mind is cleaner than a man s: She changes it more often.
Sometimes the answer to prayer is not that it changes life, but that it changes you.
No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or emotional appeal.
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your gold and good health have vanished.
A man has only one escape from his old self: to see a different self in the mirror of some woman's eyes.
To love is to place our happiness in the happiness of another.
A loving heart is the truest wisdom.
Every day I live I am more convinced that the waste of life lies in the love we have not given, the powers we have not used, the selfish prudence that will risk nothing and which, shirking pain, misses happiness as well.
Like the measles, love is most dangerous when it comes late in life.
Love comes when manipulation stops; when you think more about the other person than about his or her reactions to you. When you dare to reveal yourself fully. When you dare to be vulnerable.
Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
If it is your time, love will track you down like a cruise missile.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible -- it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love, you want the other person.
Love was as subtly caught, as a disease; But being got it is a treasure sweet, which to defend is harder than to get: And ought not be profaned on either part, for though 'Tis got by chance, 'Tis kept by art.
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.
Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
If a woman doesn't chase a man a little, she doesn't love him.
Love is like pi -- natural, irrational, and very important.
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
Love is not blind -- it sees more, not less. But because it sees more, it is willing to see less.
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
The chemist who can extract from his heart's elements, compassion, respect, longing, patience, regret, surprise, and forgiveness and compound them into one can create that atom which is called love.
A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
He drew a circle that shut me out-- Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout. But Love and I had the wit to win: We drew a circle that took him in.
There is a destiny that makes us brothers, No one goes his way alone; All that we send into the lives of others, Comes back into our own.
