“I am amazed by how many individuals mess up every new day with yesterday.”

“Forgiveness is not a feeling; it is a commitment.”

“Real love” – “This kind of love is emotional in nature but not obsessional. It is a love that unites reason and emotion. It involves an act of the will and requires discipline, and it recognizes the need for personal growth.”

“People tend to criticize their spouse most loudly in the area where they themselves have the deepest emotional need.”

“What we do for each other before marriage is no indication of what we will do after marriage.”

“Something in our nature cries out to be loved by another. Isolation is devastating to the human psyche. That is why solitary confinement is considered the cruelest of punishments.”

Without love, mountains become unclimbable, seas uncrossable, deserts unbearable, and hardships our lot in life.”

“The person who is “in-love” has the illusion that his beloved is perfect.”

“Inside every child is an ’emotional rani’s waiting to be filled with love. When a child really feels loved, he will develop normally but when the love tank is empty, the child will misbehave. Much of the misbehavior of children is motivated by the cravings of an empty ‘love tank”

“Recent research has indicated that the average individual listens for only seventeen seconds before interrupting and interjecting his own ideas.”
