The Friday 56: Leo Buscaglia

Leo Buscaglia: LadyD Books


My mother-in-law gave me the Leo Buscaglia book, Born for Love.  I'm enjoying it and have used some miscellaneous quotes from this paperback book in my post. Are you familiar with the author and perhaps have read a book or two by him? His writings seem universal and draw mankind in, especially on the subject of love, I think.

These challenging lessons in loving will enrich your life for as long as you live.


    The Friday 56

    So much of our lives are overrun by hate, greed, violence and selfishness that we are tempted to overlook the fact that there is at least an equal amount of goodness in the world. The problem is that those who promote their negativity and hate seem to be far more vocal than the lovers and are certainly given more media time. -- Leo Buscaglia

    At a street fair event, I discovered this huge Ficus tree growing outside someone's home in the neighborhood, reaching up to a November blue sky. Photos for Skywatch Friday

    We suffer from seeing too much death and not enough life, too much sorrow and not enough joy, too much greed and not enough giving, too much loneliness, and not enough love. -- Anonymous
