Motivational Sayings on Affection



The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
-- Mother Teresa

It is by little acts of watchful kindness recurring daily and hourly, by words, tones, gestures, looks, that affection is won and preserved.
-- George A. Sala

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
-- Buddha

Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again--this is the brave and happy life.
-- J. E. Buckrose

To make a man happy, fill his hands with work, his heart with affection, his mind with purpose, his memory with useful knowledge, his future with hope, and his stomach with food.
-- Frederick E. Crane

Love makes up for the lack of long memories by a sort of magic. All other affections need a past: Love creates a past which envelops us, as if by enchantment.
-- Benjamin Constant

Never fear spoiling children by making them too happy. Happiness is the atmosphere in which all good affections grow.
-- Thomas Bray

There are so many disciplines in being a parent besides the obvious ones like getting up in the night and putting up with the noise during the day. And almost the hardest of all is learning to be a well of affection and not a fountain, to show them we love them, not when we feel like it, but when they do.
-- Nan Fairbrother

Virtue does not consist so much in abstaining from vice, as in not having an affection for it.
-- W. T. Eldridge

Our sweetest experiences of affection are meant to point us to that realm which is the real and endless home of the heart.
-- Henry Ward Beecher

The ardor of parental affection consumes the heart with its fire.
-- American Proverb

Strange but true... It's impossible to give a hug without getting one back.
-- Unknown Author
