anything done in this world.
Lucille Ball

Real love is selfless and free from fear. It pours itself out upon the object of its affection,
without demanding any return. Its joy is in the joy of giving.
Florence Scovel Shinn

an attitude of love toward everybody you meet, you'll eventually get along.
Will Durant

I don't know a perfect person. I only know flawed people who are still worth loving.
John Green

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing
and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and
makes allowances for human weaknesses.
Ann Landers

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.
Dalai Lama

the other.

receive, while the more freedom you give, the less you demand, the more love you will
receive.
