  • You have the choice. You can choose joy over despair, happiness over tears, action over apathy, growth over stagnation.

  • To place your ideas and your dreams before the crowd is to risk being called naive.

    LEO BUSCAGLIA, PH.D. (1982). “LIVING, LOVING & LEARNING”
  • When you love someone you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity - in freedom

  • As long as you are free, you are free to select and choose alternatives, provided that you are willing to accept the responsibility for being free. And after you've tried your alternatives, and they don't work as you would wish, don't blame me. Blame your choice. Try another alternative.

    LEO BUSCAGLIA, PH.D. (1982). “LIVING, LOVING & LEARNING”
  • It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.

    "Love". Book by Leo Buscaglia, 1972.
  • Success often lies just the other side of failure.

  • There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control.

    LEO BUSCAGLIA, PH.D. (1982). “LIVING, LOVING & LEARNING”
  • My rule is always, People first and things second.

    LEO BUSCAGLIA, PH.D. (1982). “LIVING, LOVING & LEARNING”
  • 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.

    LEO BUSCAGLIA, PH.D. (1982). “LIVING, LOVING & LEARNING”
  • The lover must often say, "I love because I must, because I will it. I love for myself, not for others. I love for the joy it gives me - and incedentally, only - for that joy it gives to others. If they reinforce me it will be good. If they do not, it also will be good, for I will to love."

    Love  
  • Relish love in your old age! Aged love is like aged wine; it becomes more satisfying, more refreshing, more valuable, more appreciated and more intoxicating!

    Love  
  • God made mud, God made dirt, God made boys so girls could flirt.

  • Things omitted are often more deadly than errors committed.

  • 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, feel, change, grow or love. Chained by his certitude, he is a slave; he has forfeited his freedom. Only the person who risks is truly free.

  • We seem to gain wisdom more readily through our failures than through our successes. We always think of failure as the antithesis of success, but it isn't. Success often lies just the other side of failure.

  • Your talent is God's gift to you.

  • Don't look over people's shoulders. Look in their eyes. Don't talk at your children. Take their faces in your hands and talk to them. Don't make love to a body, make love to a person.

  • We all need each other.

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

    Love  
  • Love is like a mirror. When you love another you become his mirror and he becomes yours .... And reflecting each other's love you see infinity.

    Leo F. Buscaglia (1972). “Love”, Fawcett
  • Everybody needs a hug. It changes your metabolism.

    Love  
    LEO BUSCAGLIA, PH.D. (1982). “LIVING, LOVING & LEARNING”
  • Compassion is an act of tolerance where kindness and forgiveness reign. When we make the compassionate choice, we enhance the dignity of each individual, which is the very essence of loving them.

    Essence  
  • The most unfortunate thing that happens to a person who fears failure is that he limits himself by becoming afraid to try anything new.

  • This loving person is a person who abhors waste - waste of time, waste of human potential. How much time we waste. As if we were going to live forever.

    "Love". Book by Leo Buscaglia, 1972.
  • Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise.

    Love  
    Leo F. Buscaglia (1972). “Love”, Fawcett
  • The greatest risk is to risk nothing at all

  • It doesn't matter who you have hurt, if you've learned not to hurt again. It doesn't matter what mistakes you've made as long as you don't make them again. As long as you learn, as long as you're willing to take your life in your hands, and kiss it and go from there. Then there is growth. There there is life!

    LEO BUSCAGLIA, PH.D. (1982). “LIVING, LOVING & LEARNING”
  • Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.

    Leo F. Buscaglia (1972). “Love”, Fawcett
  • Life is uncharted territory. It reveals its story one moment at a time.

  • 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.
