We need to find the courage to say no to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
When you make a commitment to a relationship, you invest your attention and energy in it more profoundly because you now experience ownership of that relationship.
The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present.
You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.
No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning.
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.
We don't develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.
Love's greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.
