Screen shot 2012-02-02 at 2.14.23 PMWhile working on an article about Caring For Our Retired Spouses,  I came across several wonderful quotes that I wanted to share. I hope you find them as inspirational as I did.

 It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.” Antoine de Saint-ExupéryThe Little Prince

                                                                          “This life is for loving, sharing, learning, smiling, caring, forgiving, laughing, hugging, helping, dancing, wondering, healing, and even more loving. I choose to live life this way. I want to live my life in such a way that when I get out of bed in the morning, the devil says, ‘aw shit, he’s up!”     Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

“Everybody-even monsters-needed a little attention once in a while.”                                      Rick RiordanThe Lightning Thief

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.                                                  Leo Buscaglia

 Caring for but never trying to own may be a further way to define friendship.

                                                                                                                     William Glasser

If you open your heart, then the object of your love becomes so precious because you are so open. Caring spreads.                                                                                  Jeff Bridges
