Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.
True love is about wanting happiness for the person you love -
and not about seeking happiness for yourself.

is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

than I do him of whom I tell a lie.

The more you aim at it and make it a target,

the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication
to a cause greater than oneself.
- Viktor E. Frankl

The greater the general, the more he contributes in maneuver,

is a greater gift than a steak dinner served brusquely.
