Love that is not freely given is bondage – Swami Kriyananda

The secret of love is not making demands of each other.
Love that is not freely given is bondage.
In leadership, a garland of humility is more to be prized than any crown.
The secret of happiness is including other people’s happiness in one’s own.
A person who has no joy in his heart will find no joy outside, though he be in heaven itself, and in the company of angels. Swami Kriyananda
