Love and Dreams - Quotes

I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love. You feel it in your heart. It is the common fiber of life, the flame that heals our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives. It is our connection to God and to each other.

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

It is a good idea to be ambitious, to have goals, to want to be good at what you do, but it is a terrible mistake to let drive and ambition get in the way of treating people with kindness and decency. The point is not that they will then be nice to you. It is that you will feel better about yourself.

Robert Solow

It is best to love wisely, no doubt; but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all.

If we deny love that is given to us, if we refuse to give love because we fear pain or loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss greater.

Love will make you forget time, and time will make you forget love.

Men mistake friendship, but not sex, for love; women mistake sex, but not friendship, for love.

Keith: Nobody can stand being alone. The minute you stop thinking there's someone out there for you it's over, isn't it?

Love comes always unexpected, love strikes blind and undirected
Love is the answer, love is all we need, my friend
Now you came and changed the weather, now I wanna live forever

Flame, Salvation

I saw some piglets suckling their dead mother. After a short while they shuddered and went away. They had sensed that she could no longer see them and that she wasn't like them any more. What they loved in their mother wasn't her body, but whatever it was that made her body live.

[But] maybe what is important doesn't change. I learned this from Bob Haggart, a good friend in my hometown of Syracuse, New York. Bob had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 1988 and was not doing well. He wouldn't live to see the new millennium. I wanted to get his perspective, as someone who knows death is real, about what is important and enduring. But before I could do so, his wife, Brenda, called. Bob was in the hospital. He was too sick to see visitors or to write his regular newspaper column for the Syracuse Post-Standard. Then on Valentine's Day a column by Bob - written on a word processor sneaked into his hospital room by one of his colleagues - appeared in the Post-Standard. "This is my Valentine to Brenda," it reads. "Unfortunately, this Valentine will not look or taste as good as those hearts that grade-school teachers in Kansas helped me cut out and paste on big pieces of red paper. ... So here is my Valentive, composed in my head as Brenda sleeps beside me on my hospital bed. The paper and paste of my Valentine hold straight and true the best words I have ever written in my life. Bob loves Brenda forever." Eleven days later Bob died. I never got to see him or thank him for answering my question. Love endures.
