Living, Loving and Learning

"The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. 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 a potential to turn a life around. It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt."

"Love is not a thing, it is not lost when given. You can offer your love completely to hundreds of people and still retain the same love you had originally."

"The hardest battle you’re ever going to fight is the battle to be just you."

"A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose -- and don't let them tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that purpose is an illusion. (Live an illusion if you have to). You are that combination so that you can do what is essential for you to do. Don't ever believe that you have nothing to contribute. The world is an incredibly unfulfilled tapestry. And only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours."

"Love is life...and if you miss love, you miss life."

Words from my favorite author, Leo Buscaglia that I live by. Thanks to my college friend, closest and one of the best, Erlou Salunat, who will soon take her bar exams this November. :) Good luck, bru! She introduced me Leo's book which originally was her eldest sister's. :) Oh, well, thank you, too, Ate Blossom. I mean, Atty. Blossom. Ü
