All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
Charles M. Schulz
You will only be loved and respected if you love and respect yourself. Never try to please everyone; if you do, you will be respected by no one.
Manuscript found in Accra by Paulo Coelho
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.
Loving yourself…does not mean being self-absorbed, it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart.
If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love others. You will not be able to love others. If you have no compassion for yourself then you are not able of developing compassion for others.
Love is like a butterfly. If you chase it, it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to something else, it will come and softly sit on your shoulder.
