Love

Laura Ingalls Wilder

Remember, it is not the things you have that make you happy. It is the love and kindness and helping each other and just plain being good.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Mother Teresa

St. Basil

A tree is known by its fruit; a man by deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

Thomas à Kempis

Love is swift, sincere, pious, pleasant, gentle, strong, patient, faithful, prudent, long suffering, manly and never seeking his own, for wheresoever a man seeketh his own, he falleth from love.

Jacques Philippe

The only way to be satisfied and happy is to love freely, without expecting recompense, to forgive the evil that has been done to us and not demand anything for the good we do to others. This is really the path of freedom of heart.

Brant Hansen

Anger is extraordinarily easy. It’s our default setting. Love is very difficult. Love is a miracle.

F. Sweet

If you have a tender message,
Or a loving word to say,
Do not wait till you forget it,
But whisper it today;
The tender word unspoken,
The letter never sent,
The long forgotten messages,
The wealth of love unspent–
For these some hearts are breaking,
For these some loved ones wait;
So show them that you care for them
Before it is too late.

Giuseppe Roncalli John XXIII

We have only a single, very brief life in which to suffer in loving and to love in suffering: let us not lose a minute of it.

Bessie Stanley

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much…who has left the world better than he found it…who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory is a benediction.

William Shakespeare

Love is not love which alters when it alterations finds.

Martin Buxbaum

We can curse the fate that made us…or love each living hour…if we
do the job God gave us…be we humble weed or flower.
For each of us is needed…and each of us has worth…or He never
would have bothered…to honor us with birth.
There is fragrance in the roses…and shade beneath the pine…and
softness in the clover…and food upon the vine.
And each one serves a different need…just as you and I…be we
creeping in the valley…or climbing to the sky.

Stefan Wyszynski

The spirit of calm, as the fruit of love and justice, brings with it order and concord, and drives out disputes, discord, quarrelsomeness, and division.

Author Unknown

Mathematics is not only for solving numbers. It’s also for dividing sorrow, subtracting sadness, adding happiness and multiplying love and forgiveness.

Victor Hugo

A house is built of logs and stone, or tiles and posts and piers; a home is built of loving deeds that stand a thousand years.

Willa Cather

Where there is great love there are always miracles.

Dr. Raymond Guarendi

The secret to a good marriage, for the most part, is that there are no secrets, only commonsense, time-tested ideas practiced by countless others who have done it well.

Mother Teresa

What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.

Maya Angelou

Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.

Brian Andreas

Anyone can slay a dragon …but try waking up every morning and loving the world all over again. That’s what takes a real hero.

Diane Loomans

If I had my child to raise all over again, I’d finger paint more, and point the finger less. I’d do less correcting, and more connecting. I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes. I would care to know less, and know to care more. I’d take more hikes and fly more kites. I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play. I’d run through more fields, and gaze at more stars. I’d do more hugging, and less tugging. I would be firm less often, and affirm much more. I’d build self esteem first, and the house later. I’d teach less about the love of power, and more about the power of love.

William Arthur Ward

Another fresh new year is here . . . Another year to live! To banish worry, doubt, and fear, To love and laugh and give! This bright new year is given me To live each day with zest . . . To daily grow and try to be My highest and my best! I have the opportunity Once more to right some wrongs, To pray for peace, to plant a tree, And sing more joyful songs!

William Arthur Ward

Every person has the power to make others happy. Some do it simply by entering a room others by leaving the room. Some individuals leave trails of gloom; others, trails of joy. Some leave trails of hate and bitterness; others, trails of love and harmony. Some leave trails of cynicism and pessimism; others trails of faith and optimism. Some leave trails of criticism and resignation; others trails of gratitude and hope. What kind of trails do you leave?

Henry David Thoreau

However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names… The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is.

Henri Nouwen

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.

John Paul II

Do not forget that true love sets no conditions; it does not calculate or complain but simply loves.

Mother Teresa

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.

Leo Buscaglia

Death is a challenge. It tells us not to waste time…It tells us to tell each other right now that we love each other.

Leo Buscaglia

Don’t hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love.
