Love is always bestowed as a gift -
freely, willingly and without expectation.
We don't love to be loved;
we love to love.
Dr. Leo Buscaglia, 1924-1998
American Author, Professor and Inspirational Speaker
The adventure of life is to learn.
The purpose of life is to grow.
The nature of life is to change.
The challenge of life is to overcome.
The essence of life is to care.
The opportunity of life is to serve.
The secret of life is to dare.
The spice of life is to befriend.
The beauty of life is to give.
The joy of life is to love.
William Arthur Ward, 1921-1994
Listening is such a simple act. It requires us to be present, and that takes practice, but we don't have to do anything else. We don't have to advise, or coach or sound wise. We just have to be willing to sit there and listen.
Margaret J. Wheatley
