Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.

Leo F. Buscaglia

The easiest thing in the world to be is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don't let them put you in that position.

Leo Buscaglia

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.

Leo Buscaglia

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.

Time has no meaning in itself unless we choose to give it significance.

A single rose can be my garden...a single friend, my world.

The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.

Leo F. Buscaglia

A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself -- to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.

Leo F. Buscaglia

Love withers with predictability; its very essence is surprise and amazement. To make love a prisoner of the mundane is to take its passion and lose it forever.

Leo F. Buscaglia

Don't smother each other. No one can grow in the shade.

Leo F. Buscaglia

Things omitted are often more deadly than errors committed.

Leo F. Buscaglia

Change is the end result of all true learning.

Leo F. Buscaglia

If we wish to free ourselves from enslavement, we must choose freedom and the responsibility this entails.
