(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion... while truth again reverts to a new minority.
- Soren Kierkegaard

to a cause greater than oneself.

If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.

is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We all tend to measure our worth by what we DO -
the actions we take.

is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.

triggers an amazing cycle of transformation
Appreciation for the abundance of life incites gratitude -

Gratitude for abundance also creates increasing abundance.
Being truly grateful for the abundance that
is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance
to flow in my direction.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition.

Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
