This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it's with us wherever we are." - Pema Chodron

But friendships are freely entered into, freely given, and freely exercised...." - Stephen Ambrose

"Drop envy and jealousy, otherwise there is no possibility - because love cannot exist where envy and jealousies exist.

This situation is created because of the 'love' which comes from the ego - there can never be any relation between love and the ego." - Rajneesh

Envy, jealousy, and resentment will put out your flame before it grows." - Suzy Kassem

"But people try love and because they are unconscious... their longing is good, but their love is full of jealousy, full of possessiveness, full of anger, full of nastiness. Soon they destroy it. Hence for centuries they have depended on marriage. Better to start by marriage so that the law can protect you from destroying it. The society, the government, the court, the policeman, the priest, they will all force you to live in the institution of marriage, and you will be just a slave. If marriage is an institution, you are going to be a slave in it. Only slaves want to live in institutions." - Rajneesh
