more happiness, more human enlightenment than from any other way.

no matter what their race or the color of their skin.
- Wendell Willkie

applicable to themselves,
while busy spawning intolerances for others.

liberties of those we hate,
we are opening the way to loss of liberty for those we love.

best for each of us individually,

and experience physical and emotional suffering
in ourselves, our family, and our friends.

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.
Fortunately, in most cases our own loving presence
is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When does a belief bring out the best in you?
When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?
Test your beliefs with as much objectivity
as you can bring to the subject.
Be willing to let go of those beliefs
that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test
who can finish first or who can end up with the most loot.
Rather, life is best enjoyed as a meander -
watching the view to left and right - above and below -
as the days slowly move past in dress review.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The right way is not always the popular and easy way.
Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character.

But the most important test is to take them on tour
and see if you can bear to spend time with them.

probably one extra help from God to bring you together,
but that's it.
All the rest of it, the true love, is the test.

What we can do for another is the test of powers;
what we can suffer is the test of love.
