What love we've given, we'll have forever. What love we fail to give, will be lost for all eternity.
Don't brood. Get on with living and loving. You don't have forever.
When we sit at the table, there is more going on than satisfying hunger. It is sad to think of those who eat simply to satisfy their hunger and who do not permit themselves to linger under the many spells offered by a good meal — the satisfaction of our hearts, our minds and our spirits.

The purpose of life is to help others, and if you can't help them, won't you at least not hurt them? I know that is a platitude, that that is sentimental and can easily be attacked. But loving, caring is simple, and we make it complex. Our own neuroses make it complex.
Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong.

Change is the end result of all true learning.
