Mitch Albom
“The fact is, there is no foundation, no secure ground, upon which people may stand today if it isn’t the family.

As our great poet Auden said, ‘Love each other or perish’.”

“There is no formula to relationships. They have to be negotiated in loving ways, with room for both parties, what they want and what they need, what they can do and what their life is like.

Love is when you are as concerned about someone else’s situation as you are about your own.”
Morrie Schwartz

Leigh Hershkovich
“If you’re not happy, then something is wrong. A person comes into the world as a happy being, yet over time, the happiness fades away and they find themselves in this bubble of anxiety and misery all the time. And it’s a comfortable place to stay, so they end up hanging out in this bubble for years and years before it suddenly dawns on them that life is meant to be happy. And, it is. It’s just that they’re too busy getting caught up in worry and stress to notice that life is magnificent and beautiful. Being alive is good. Being alive should already make you happy.”
Leigh Hershkovich

Dalai Lama XIV, Desmond Tutu, Douglas Abrams, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

But instead of bringing all that up, I felt the urge to ask her gently if she was okay.”
Lindy Tsang, A Beautiful Mind, A Beautiful Life: The Bubz Guide to Being Unstoppable
