Colleen Hoover
“Selflessness. It should be the basis of every relationship. If a person truly cares about you, they'll get more pleasure from the way they make you feel, rather than the way you make them feel.”
Colleen Hoover, Confess

Chelsea Handler
“My mother told me that life isn't always about pleasing yourself and that sometimes you have to do things for the sole benefit of another human being. I completely agreed with her, but reminded her that that was what blow jobs were for.”

Kahlil Gibran
“And now you ask in your heart, ‘How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?’
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.

People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.”
Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

Amit Ray

Katherine Center, How to Walk Away

Dragos Bratasanu

You cannot be depressed when you show up everyday to bring hope to people in despair.

You cannot feel lack when you give everyday to the poor.

You cannot feel alone when you truly seek to meet people's needs.

You cannot feel unworthy when you show others how precious they are.

You cannot feel ugly when you truly see how beautiful all people are.

You cannot feel you don't matter when you see that everyone truly matters.

You cannot feel unloved when you love others. Love is something you do.

What you don't give, you lose. If you don't have it, give it away to somebody today. Protect and keep the things you value by giving them.”
Dragos Bratasanu

Ana Claudia Antunes, How To Heal A Broken Heart: All You Need Is Love

Richard Rohr
“We actually respond to one another's energy more than to people's exact words or actions. In any situation, your taking or giving of energy is what you are actually doing. Everybody can feel, suffer, or enjoy the difference, but few can exactly say what it is that is happening. Why do I feel drawn or repelled? What we all desire and need from one another, of course, is that life energy called eros! It always draws, creates, and connects things.”
Richard Rohr, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

“Baba instilled in us a strong sense of community, and he wanted us to always give to those who didn't have. "You don't give the money to the church, mosque, government, or anyone else for that matter; you give it to the needy yourself. Don't always count on the middle man. The money you are spending in God's name is the money that benefits those in need.”
Hani Selim, Osama's Jihad

Maria Wallingford
“If a lady offers you a kindness, you absolutely have to accept”
Maria Wallingford, My 12 Months a Troll

James Hauenstein
“Remember, the best presents anyone can give, is being there for their loved ones.”

Melissa Monique Brown

Elizabeth Rolls

“You will never have to question the devotion of a person who loves you. A person who loves you will inspire you to be a better person because of their ways and actions. That special person will effortlessly add value to your life. They will not be jealous of you, in contrast they'll be very proud of you. He or she will respect your differences, be considerate, mindful of your needs and pleasing to your reasonable desires.”
Germany Kent

and you can have what you won’t give.”

Ogyen Trinley Dorje
“We give something, and that opens the possibility of receiving: we naturally receive something when we give. This is how we live, whether it is in the business world, in our social lives, or in any other context. Giving and taking is happening all the time. Living is dependent on giving: we give and therefore we receive. This interdependence is natural; however, it takes a special effort to train our mind to know this well enough so that our understanding is clear and strong. – 17th Karmapa”
Ogyen Trinley Dorje, Traveling the Path of Compassion: A Commentary on The Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva

“It is no secret that we can only give to others what we have to give. We can only export to our clients what we have in fact imported into our own lives. Leadership and influence are among other things, sharing with others from the overflow of our own growth and multiplied challenges.”
Chris J. Gregas
