Don't smother each other. No one can grow in the shade.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

I believe that you control your destiny, that you can be what you want to be. You can also stop and say, No, I won't do it, I won't behave his way anymore. I'm lonely and I need people around me, maybe I have to change my methods of behaving and then you do it.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate - it's apathy. It's not giving a damn.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things... I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.
Leo Buscaglia   Category: Nature

I've always thought that people need to feel good about themselves and I see my role as offering support to them, to provide some light along the way.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

If I don't have wisdom, I can teach you only ignorance.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

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

It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

Life lived for tomorrow will always be just a day away from being realized.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.
Leo Buscaglia   Category: Love

Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.
Leo Buscaglia   Category: Love

Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

The easiest thing to be in the world 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   Category:

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.
Leo Buscaglia   Category: Inspirational

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 the potential to turn a life around.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

We all need each other.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

We are no longer puppets being manipulated by outside powerful forces: we become the powerful force ourselves.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

What love we've given, we'll have forever. What love we fail to give, will be lost for all eternity.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.
Leo Buscaglia   Category:

Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.
