"First of all, the loving individual has to care about himself. This is number one. I don’t mean an ego trip. I’m talking about somebody who really cares about himself, who says, ‘Everything is filtered through me, and so the greater I am, the more I have to give. The greater knowledge I have, the more I’m going to have to give. The greater understanding I have, the greater is my ability to teach others and to make myself the most fantastic, the most beautiful, the most wondrous, the most tender human being in the world.’"
— Leo Buscaglia, author of one of my favorite books “LOVE”
