Do not entrust all of your happinessto one person. It is possible to love someone for a lifetime, but there is noone who is willing to carry a load for a lifetime. In order to love others youmust first learn how to love yourself. How do you do that? Cherish your ownlife, respect your own principles, take care of your health, treasure yourlife, cultivate your own interests. There is no perfect person on earth; do notpush yourself too hard, and do not inflict harm on yourself.
Jia Cuo Rinpoche
