LOVING
(quotes by Leo Buscaglia)
* One does not fall "in" or "out" of love. One grows in love.
* 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. * We need others. We need others to love and we need to be loved by them. There is no doubt that without it, we too, like the infant left alone, would cease to grow, cease to develop, choose madness and even death.

LOVING
* Go around listen to how many times a day you say, "I love" instead of, "I hate." Isn't it interesting that children, as they learn the process of language, always learn the word "no" years before they learn the word "yes"? Ask linguists where they hear it. Maybe if they heard more of "I love, I love, I love" they'd hear it sooner and more often. * Who is the loving person? The loving person is the person who loves him or herself. I say this so often, and people say, "Oh yes, you're so right," but they don't do it! You will never be able to love anyone else until you love yourself.

LOVING
I had to ask, "What's the good of all our learning, knowing how to read and write and spell if no one ever teaches us the value of life, of our uniqueness, and personal dignity?" So I started my Love Class. * We can ask ourselves daily what we have done to make the world a better place, to make someone smile, to help someone to feel more secure, etc. It's the simple things which have the greatest effect. We must never underestimate the strength of a smile or act of kindness. * You can't imagine the joy I feel when I hear that something I've said or done or written has helped others to regain their sense of dignity, to motivate them to develop their unique potential, to encourage them to reach out to others in love.

QUIZ
Asking yourself questions and answering them honestly is a good path to selfknowledge. In keeping with this idea, I'd like to propose a few end-of-the-day questions for each of us... Is anyone a little happier because I came along today? Did I leave any concrete evidence of my kindness, any sign of my love? Did I try to think of someone I know in a more positive light? Did I help someone to feel joy, to laugh, or at least, to smile? Have I attempted to remove a little of the rust that is corroding my relationships? Have I gone through the day without fretting over what I don't have and celebrating the things I do have? Have I forgiven others for being less than perfect? Have I forgiven myself? Have I learned something new about life, living or love?
