Leo Buscaglia

Leo Buscaglia a wonderful author and so much more. Here are some of his quotes that I really liked. I am sure I will elaborate on a couple of them in the future but for now I just want to share.

“Change is the end result of all true learning. ”

“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.”

“Find the person who will love you because of your differences and not in spite of them and you have found a lover for life.”

“I believe that you control your destiny, that you can be what you want to be. You can also stop and say, No, I won’t do it, I won’t behave his way anymore. I’m lonely and I need people around me, maybe I have to change my methods of behaving and then you do it”

“I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate – it’s apathy. It’s not giving a damn.”

“I’ve always though that people need to feel good about themselves and I see my role as offering support to them, to provide some light along the way.”

“Life lived for tomorrow will always be just a day away from being realized.”

“Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie’s man’s only promise.”

“Love is always bestowed as a gift – freely, willingly and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved; we love to love. ”

“Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.”

“Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.”

“Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations. ”

“Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong. ”

“The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don’t let them put you in that position.”

“The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.”

“There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control.”

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ”

“What love we’ve given, we’ll have forever. What love we fail to give, will be lost for all eternity.”

“What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.”

“Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.”

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.”

  1. Thank you for sharing I enjoy quotes and many of those are among some of my favorites. Always remember you must love yourself FIRST before you can expect others to love you. It has taken me a very long time to realize that I can not depend on others for that but only on myself.
