“What humans need most is to love and be loved, to give love and receive love. And the truth is that they have a greater need to love than to be loved. Yes, to love, because it is their love that makes them alive and inspires them. To love is the greatest source of blessings. This is why you must never prevent your heart from loving: love all of creation, all creatures, always seeking how best to express your love.
However, if you have love for all creatures, it does not mean you should not be cautious. If you expose your love too much, you run the risk of being taken advantage of. So wisdom must have its say too. It will teach you how to show reserve but without stifling your love. It is often better to keep your love secret, so that it can work for the good of yourself and others.”
