“If I love you, what business is it of yours” ~Goethe. One of my favorite quotes! Properly understood, this means that I should not waste time worrying about whether or not people love me… I should stay focused on making sure that I am giving love out freely to others. The great paradox of love is that it always makes the giver feel better than the recipient. But when we forget that fact & complain that we aren’t “getting” enough love from others, we shut ourselves off from the wonderful feelings of love, because the one & only way to truly feel love, is to give it. The goal for today: don’t waste time monitoring the rest of the worlds actions… just make sure you’re doing what’s Right! Have a great day everybody!
“Tact, is the art of making a point, without making an enemy” ~Goethe.
This quote is one of my favorites… & something about it just dawned on me.
The motive behind making the point is what will dictate whether I make an enemy or a friend.
If my motive is Pure & I can Honestly say that I am trying to help you by making the point… we’ll be friends.
Whereas, if my motive isn’t Pure & I am making the point simply to prove that I’m right… then I will probably turn you against me.
The goal for today: know that Pure motives eliminate enemies!
Have a great day everybody!
