"Life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences, but rather it is a tapestry of acts that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan."
Awesome Quote from the movie Serendipity!
"It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
"…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are."
― Pema Chödrön

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows the best and worst of us, and who loves us in spite of all our faults.
The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but to hold hands.
Love is the only thing you get more of by giving it away.
Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination.
People need love even when they don't deserve it.
The love we give away is the only love we keep.
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
Love cures people - both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it.
Dr. Karl Menninger
Where there is love there is life.
Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better.
Only love can be divided endlessly and still not diminish.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
The Grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
Allan K. Chalmers
Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.
Barbara De Angelis
Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.
The ONLY kind of courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next. ~ Mignon McLaughlin
The human capacity to care for others isn’t something trivial or something to be taken for granted. Rather, it is something we should cherish. Compassion is a marvel of human nature, a precious inner resource, and the foundation of our well-being and the harmony of our societies. If we seek happiness for ourselves, we should practice compassion: and if we seek happiness for others, we should also practice compassion. Dalai Lama
