Unconditional Love , Love Without Limits.

John Powell

” Some people, as we know, make a vocation of being sick, either physically or emotionally. It is the easiest, if not the only, way for them to relate to others: by being needy. Sometimes, sickness provides an excuse for not trying. The American Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine has theorized that 92% of all physical illness is psychologically induced.”

“Human fulfillment and true satisfaction cannot be measured by the yardstick of “fun”. This would be sadly superficial. Fulfillment and saticfaction like-wise cannot be measured by counting the moments of exhilaration that can be crammed into each day. And finally, true happiness cannot be a result of a tensionless existence. Fun, exhilaration, and absence of tension – which are all good in themselves and have a place in every life- can never add up to human fulfillment or a meaningful life.”

“True self-esteem and a true sense of identity can be found only in the reflected appraisal of those whom we have loved.”

“Giving the gift of myself in love leaves me with a deep and lasting satisfaction of having done something good with my life.”

“Having made such a decision, on the presumption that my offer of love has been accepted and reciprocated, I am now by my own free choice commited to the happiness, security and well-being of the person I love. I will do everything I can do to help that person build whatever dreams he or she has. It is a commitment which I make when I offer my love. When I question myself about the place love has in my life, I must therefore ask if there is any person in my life whose growth and happiness is as real or more real to me than my own. If so, love has truly entered my life.”

“When I want to be free at all costs

I am already beginning to bind myself

When I pursue my own wishes

I throw myself in chains

I do what I dont want to do

I am at my own mercy

And when I finally consider myself free

Freedom becomes a burden

Because I must make decisions

Which I am unable to make

And my freedom turns into a new prison

I can only find freedom

In the ropes that bind me

TO YOU…..” by Ulrich Schaffer

“People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

“Love offers a person roots (sense of belonging) and wings (sense of independence and freedom)”

“If I have built protective walls around my vulnerable places, love will tear them down.”

“People with low capacities for love relationships are ten times more likely to be labelled psychiatrically ill.”

“The essential sadness is to go through life without loving. But it would be almost equally sad to go through life and leave this world without ever telling those you loved that you love them.”


Learned a lot from this book..I’ll surely read this again next time..=)
