Thich Nhat Hanh

Love is the capacity to take care, to protect, to nourish. If you are not capable of generating that kind of energy toward yourself if you are not capable of taking care of yourself, of nourishing yourself, of protecting yourself it is very difficult to take care of another person. To love oneself is the foundation of the love of other people. Love is a practice.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"Human beings by nature want happiness and do not want suffering. With that feeling everyone tries to achieve happiness and tries to get rid of suffering. In this way, all here are the same, whether rich or poor, educated or uneducated, Easterner or Westerner, believer or non-believer, and within believers whether Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, or Muslim. From the viewpoint of human value we are all the same."

Conscience ... seldom comes to a man's aid while he is in the zenith of health and revelling in pomp and luxury upon illgotten spoils. It is generally the last act of his life, and it comes too late to be of much service to others here, or to himself hereafter.

We live in oppressive times. We have, as a nation, become our own thought police; but instead of calling the process by which we limit our expression of dissent and wonder “censorship,” we call it “concern for commercial viability.
