“Faced with today’s problems and disappointments, many people will try to escape from their responsibility. Escape in selfishness, escape in sexual pleasure, escape in drugs, escape in violence, escape in indifference and cynical attitudes. I propose to you the option of love, which is the opposite of escape.” – Pope John Paul II

there will be times in your life when you have to choose between being loved and being respected. always pick being respected. that love without respect was always fleeting- but that respect could grow into real, lasting love.
