Loving the unlovable

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

~ Gilbert K. Chesterton 

Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.
~ Ray Bradbury

Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Son, brother, father, lover, friend. There is room in the heart for all the affections, as there is room in heaven for all the stars.
~ Victor Hugo

Patience with others is Love. Patience with self is Hope. Patience with God is Faith.

~ Adel Bestavros

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of chemical substances; if there is any reaction, both are transformed.

~ Carl Jung

You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. The single relationship that is truly central and crucial in a life is the relationship to the self. It is rewarding to find someone who you like, but it is essential to like yourself. It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable. It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things. For you cannot live in someone else. You cannot find yourself in someone else. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave nor lose. To the question of your life, you are the only answer. To the problems of your life, you are the only solution. 

~ Jo Coudert

We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.

~ Albert Einstein
