"… The most precious inheritance that parents can give their children is their own happiness. Our parents may be able to leave us money, houses, and land, but they may not be happy people. If we have happy parents, we have received the richest inheritance of all." - Thich Nhat Hanh
"Often, we get crushes on others not because we truly love and understand them, but to distract ourselves from our suffering. When we learn to love and understand ourselves and have true compassion for ourselves, then we can truly love and understand another person. " - Thich Nhat Hanh
"Understanding someone’s suffering is the best gift you can give another person. Understanding is love’s other name. If you don’t understand, you can’t love." - Thich Nhat Hanh
"When we feed and support our own happiness, we are nourishing our ability to love. That’s why to love means to learn the art of nourishing our happiness". - Thich Nhat Hanh
Real, truthful love is rooted in four elements — loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity — fostering which lends love “the element of holiness.” - Thich Nhat Hanh
