Love

This is all you need to know about life. Compassion and love and caring will take you the furthest.
Barry Switzer

Grumbling is the death of love.
Marlene Dietrich

No difference in viewpoint should ever be allowed to cause the least break in love. Indeed, it cannot, if it’s real love.
Catherine Marshall

Honor the people you love every day.
Earl Woods

Never pass up an opportunity to tell your child you love him. It gets harder as he gets older and begins naturally to pull away, but continue to tell him you love him, and sneak in a kiss and a hug whenever you can. Don’t get discouraged when he doesn’t reciprocate.
Elaine St. James

Love

Love is the willingness to accept another person with all of his or her faults and limitations, and to be infinitely grateful that this other person accepts you with all of yours.
Rabbi Harold Kushner

Often the most loving thing we can do when a friend is in pain is to share the pain – to be there even when we have nothing to offer except our presence and even when being there is painful to ourselves.
M. Scott Peck

People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.
Larry Ray

When I walk on the beach to watch the sunset, I do not call out, “a little more orange over to the right please,” or “would you mind giving us a little less purple in the back?” No, I enjoy the always different sunsets as they are. We do well to do the same with people we love.
Carl Rogers

How to Love

The greatest gift you can give another is the purity of your attention.
Dr. Richard Moss

How do you say “I love you?” Often, and loud!
Leo Buscaglia

You have heard that it was said, “Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:43-45

Love that goes upward is worship; love that goes outward is affection; love that stoops is grace.
Donald Barnhouse

It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
Mother Teresa

Show Mercy

When in doubt, lean to the side of mercy.
Miguel de Cervantes

I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.
Abraham Lincoln

Do you wish to receive mercy? Show mercy to your neighbor.
Sir John Chrysostom

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Matthew 5:7
