I have no right to ask anyone to love me. For wouldn’t that put the burden of expectations squarely on their small shoulders?
I have no right to ask anyone to respect what I think or what I do. For wouldn’t that nullify their own opinion?
It is better to give love without being asked.
It is better to respect without expectation of return.
For if we do not give we freely, will be miserably surprised at the response. Duress has a price.
