10 Inspirational Quotes From Leo Buscaglia
  1. Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise.

  2. Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.

  3. We all need each other.

  4. Don't smother each other. No one can grow in the shade.

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

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.

  10. 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.

Your talent is God's gift to you.
What you do with it is your gift back to God.


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