Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.
If people misunderstand you, do not worry…it is your voice that they hear, but what goes through their mind is…their own thoughts.
More quotes about Love
The more we love our friends, the less we flatter them; it is by excusing nothing that pure love shows itself.
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
