the actions we take.

on our family, our friends,

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.

and not about seeking happiness for yourself.

is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Robert Heinlein

but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement
the greater part of life is sunshine.

is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance
to flow in my direction.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
