M. Scott Peck Quotes

As I grow through love, so grows my joy, ever more present, ever more constant.

Love is the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth... Love is as love does. Love is an act of will - namely, both an intention and an action. Will also implies choice. We do not have to love. We choose to love.

Until you value yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.

Love always requires courage and involves risk.

You must have something in order to give it up.

It is their attachment to us rather than their independence from us that we value in our pets.
