“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
“We have to recognize that there cannot be relationships unless there is commitment, unless there is loyalty, unless there is love, patience, persistence.”
“I belong to my beloved, and my beloved is mine.”
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
