are some simple every day things we would do to bring more love
into our lives?
We can ask ourselves daily what we have done to make
the world a better place, to make someone smile, to help someone
to feel more secure, etc. It's the simple things which have the
greatest effect. We must never underestimate the strength of
a smile or act of kindness.
How do we create healthy, loving relationships?
Leo Buscaglia: By caring
enough to work on them as diligently as we would if we wanted
to perfect a game of golf, or tennis, or become a gourmet chef.
These things don't just happen. They require continual work.
Yes, we are born for love, but it will die if not nurtured.
inspire a lot of people, Leo. What inspires you?
Leo Buscaglia: I, in
turn, am inspired by other people. You can't imagine the joy
I feel when I hear that something I've said or done or written
has helped others to regain their sense of dignity, to motivate
them to develop their unique potential, to encourage them to
reach out to others in love.
is different now, 25 years later, in your study of love? What
(in short), have you learned in all those years?
I have learned that love is the most powerful force
available to us. When we have real love we have the strength
to perform miracles.
would you like to be remembered for?
Leo Buscaglia: I'd
like to be remembered for being a good, kind, loving, gentle
man who attempted to live wisely, and who cared a lot.
are you up to these days, Leo?
Leo Buscaglia: I'm
living more fully than ever and am discovering new magic every
day. I have never felt so alive!
you Dr. Buscaglia.
