Here is a selection of Leo Buscaglia quotes.
‘The greatest risk is to risk nothing at all.’
‘The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.’
‘Love yourself—accept yourself—forgive yourself—and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.’
‘We seem to gain wisdom more readily through our failures than through our successes. We always think of failure as the antithesis of success, but it isn’t. Success often lies just the other side of failure.’
‘Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.’
‘We need others. We need others to love and we need to be loved by them. There is no doubt that without it, we too, like the infant left alone, would cease to grow, cease to develop, choose madness and even death.’
‘The easiest thing to be in the world is you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don’t let them put you in that position.’
‘Time has no meaning in itself unless we choose to give it significance.’
‘Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong.’
‘Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations. Don’t over-analyse your relationships. Stop playing games. A growing relationship can only be nurtured by genuineness.’
