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

    Lovely photos and it sounds like an interesting trip – with plenty of tea and cakes I hope!

  2. Buddha in narcissism? ;)

  3. Just trying to tolerate myself is tough enough sometimes and I can think of many people of today and throughout history to whom it would be impossible to say that quote to with sincerity. It’s a nice photo as usual though.

    Today’s quote and the one you included for Andrew are perfect together, Cherry. “Love your neighbor as yourself…..”

    Lovely photo and fantastic saying. I often say to friends who are so critical of themselves that they should show the same kindness, tolerance and love on themselves as they lavish so quickly on friends.

    If you do not love yourself, you cannot love others. If you cannot forgive yourself, you cannot forgive others. Undeniable truths. Great photo.
