Bodhichitta, a Sanskrit term for “noble heart” or “awakened heart,” is said to exist in all living beings. This soft spot is in us all, just as butter is in milk and sesame oil is in sesame.

It is easy to love people who love you. But it is harder to love those who do not love you. Set a good example if you want to influence someone. More kindness, more compassion, and more love. This will have a positive effect. Show kindness to those who do not show kindness. Show compassion to those who are cruel. — Paramahansa Yogananda

The love is close at hand, as close as the heart. It is right there, without you having to take a step. Swami Kripalu

Love’s most important part isn’t in the giving or receiving but in the being. If I need someone’s love or if I have to give it to them, then I am in a very unstable position. The only way to be stable is to be in love. To be in love is to see the Beloved everywhere. — Ram Dass

To love, we must be sensitive towards those around us. This is impossible when we rush through life, absorbed in the tasks we must complete before sunset.
