Episode 20

When you use the word love and friend…, what do they really mean to you?

Today’s quote is titled: TIGHTEN YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
Too many people use the words Love and Friend too loosely…. Don’t use them until you have tightened your relationships…. Start with Respect…, unquote.

 I hear it all the time…, I love you…, and not necessarily in a romantic sense. People often throw that phrase around…, just because. But we now know that love is an action word and not a simple verbal expression.

 Of course…, it sounds nice to say it …, and it is nice to hear it. But what’s the old saying again? Oh yeah… Actions speak louder than words.

 The same is true with the use of the word…, friend. It is thrown around in the same way. People throw around, I love you’s and the word friend like candy…, sweet…, but with little nutritional value.

 I guess anyone can say what they want to say…, and anyone can make of what is said…, what they will. But wouldn’t you want to know that when you are told that you are loved…, that it has a special meaning…, meant for you…, that when you tell someone or they tell you, that you are friends…, that it is because…, you truly are?

 What is it they say again? Oh yeah. Say what you mean and mean what you say.

You know, I believe that the rock where upon a strong relationship is built…, is not love …, it is respect.

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for…. That quote that ignites your passion and gears you up for achievement…, or…, it may be the quote that…, as you journey through life…, illuminates your path…, brings you peace…, love…, and happiness. Share what you find here with someone else. It may be a quote…, that for them…, may set them…, or keep them on a path to a better life.
