Quotes About The Nature Of Life, Love and The Universe

Here are some quotes that I've been pondering and mean a lot to me from a diverse array of authors. There might be one that strikes you.

"If out of all mankind one finds a single friend, he has found something more precious than any treasure, since there is nothing in the world so valuable that it can be compared to a real friend.--Andreas Capellanus

"There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread."--Mother Teresa

"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."--Buddha

"We have to take the whole universe as the expression of the one Self. Then only our love flows to all beings and creatures in the world equally."--Swami Ramdas

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty".--Albert Einstein

"It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope."--Robert Francis Kennedy quotes

"Wicked men obey out of fear; good men, out of love."--Aristotle

"Man is a being with free will; therefore, each man is potentially good or evil, and it's up to him and only him (through his reasoning mind) to decide which he wants to be."--Ayn Rand

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all, and extra hugs to anyone feeling misunderstood
