Famous Author Quotes-Danielle Steel On True Love.

True Love

Feature Photo by Gabby Orcutt Upsplash.com

“Lust is temporary, romance can be nice, but love is the most important thing of all. Because without love, lust and romance will always be short-lived.”

― Danielle Steel

As a youth, romance was a key issue in my life. Some years later I began to realize the truth of my romancing. It was simply a way of satiating the lust within me. So tight was the grip of lust that I found I became narcissistic and in some cases codependent on the various partners in my affairs. It took me far too many years to wake up to what true love was really all about. I came to learn that true love was about respect and trust; putting your loved one before yourself always.

Famous Author Quotes-JM Coetzee on Teach To Learn.

Teach

Featured Photo by Mishary Alafasy

“He continues to teach because it provides him with a livelihood; also because it teaches him humility, brings it home to him who he is in the world. The irony does not escape him: that the one who comes to teach learns the keenest of lessons, while those who come to learn, learn nothing.”

― J.M. Coetzee. (Nobel Prize Winner in Literature.)

Teaching others was the love of my life; I discovered, in teaching others I became masterful in my subject matter. Many of those that I taught unfortunately never learned. I often wondered why they came to the teaching sessions. There were those, that did learn, but never applied to their lives. I am grateful for those that did learn, applied and in turn, taught others. Then there were those that learned, taught others, and raised teachers among those. This was my truest blessing, grand-students! I have always believed that a true teacher is a teacher that raises a teacher among their students, who also raises a teacher. The cherry on the top for me is, I have lived to see it come to pass.

Five Wisdom Snippets To Help You love Life.

I have discovered that I learn so much more when I keep my mouth Shut. With my mouth shut, I am considered wise and loving.

I have a wonderful life as I take ownership of the hurdles I encounter journeying forward. These hurdles don’t belong to anyone else, they are mine. As a result, I am the master of my own destiny, having been given this mandate by God within me. I have truly found a loving life.

Each day brings new opportunities into my life and I am discovering how to identify them

Never whinge; winging is like bad breath – creates a poor image of oneself. Another thing, I never explain myself to others, it seems like a fruitless pastime to me.

I always try to put myself in other people’s shoes. Working from my shoes only limits my true perspective.I think the journey of my life is like climbing a mountain, along the climb there will be brief rests; I welcome these, but I must never linger there. To do so, would mean I will delay reaching the summit.

Illusions

 

Bach 3

 

You are led

           through your lifetime

by the inner learning creature,

          the playful spiritual being

 that is your real self.

          Don’t turn away from

 possible futures

          before you’re certain you don’t have

 anything to learn from them.

        Bach You’re always free

    to change your mind and

        choose a different future, or

       a different

       Past.

 

There is

      no such thing as a problem

without a gift for you in its hands

     You seek problems,

because you need their gifts………

Richard Bach – from his glorious bestselling book, “Illusions”
