Today is the birthday of Felice Leonardo "Leo" Buscaglia (March 31, 1924 – June 12, 1998), author, motivational speaker, and professor. He was known by many as "Dr Love" and/or "Dr. Hug".
"Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself." - Leo Buscaglia
"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." - Leo Buscaglia
"A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself -- to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart." - Leo Buscaglia
"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." - Leo Buscaglia
"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." - Leo Buscaglia
"Life lived for tomorrow will always be just a day away from being realized." - Leo Buscaglia
