A Culture of Narcissism

“Self-admiration has created a culture of narcissism and a ‘love gap’ that diminishes us. What the world needs most is a love that is the polar opposite of narcissism. A love that is selfless and self-abandoning. A love that does not ask, ‘What’s in it for me?’ but ‘What’s in it for those I am privileged to know?’ A love that isn’t about being served but serving others. Your dreams come alive when you are preoccupied with making other people’s dreams come true. That is where real happiness is found.”

A Marriage of Friendship & Passion

“Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love.
For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other
which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.”

Recognizing the Responsibility

“So I had to be careful. I recognized the responsibility that, whether I liked it or not,
I had to accept whatever the obligation was. That was to behave in a manner,
to carry myself in such a professional way, as if there ever is a reflection, it’s a positive one.”
