Love by Leo F. Buscaglia“If he desired to know about automobiles, he would, without question, study diligently about automobiles. If his wife desired to be a gourmet cook, she’d certainly study the art of cooking, perhaps even attending a cooking class. Yet, it never seems as obvious to him that if he wants to live in love, he must spend at least as much time as the auto mechanic or the gourmet in studying love.”
“I hug everybody—just come close to me, you’re more than likely to get hugged, certainly touched.”
~ Leo Buscaglia from Love
I smile as I type these words—just having Buscaglia’s book, Love, open in front of me is enough to make me happy. :)
Seriously. This is hands down one of my favorite books. I’ve purchased at least 250 copies of it. We used to give it away to all of our partners at my last business (Zaadz.com) and I used to bring a copy with me to nearly every business lunch I had. (I’m a little wacky like that. :)
My hunch is you’ll fall in Love with Love as well. By the end of reading it, you’ll wish you could give Leo Buscaglia—a former Professor of Love at USC—a big ol’ hug.
Here are some of the Big Ideas:
1. Study Love - How else to master it?
2. Love Yourself - Rule #1.
3. Jump In! - Immerse yourself!
4. Say YES!! - And, yes! And, yes!
5. Grow in Love - To your highest self.
May I echo Buscaglia’s recommendation and suggest that we live for creating joy for others and sharing our greatest gifts in the greatest service to the world?!!?

Love: What Life is All About
Love is the most powerful emotion a human being can experience. The strange think is, that almost nobody knows what love is. Why is it so difficult to find love? That is easy to understand, if you know that the word "love" is not the same as one's feeling of love. The word "love" is used and abused for the expression of different sets of feelings. The word love is used as an expression of affection towards someone else I love you but it also expresses pleasure I love chocolate. To make it a little more complicated, the word "love" also expresses a human virtue that is based on compassion, affection and kindness.
Love might be one of the most quintessential capacities of the human condition. And yet, for all our poetic contemplation , psycho-scientific dissection , and anthropological exploration of it, we greatly underestimate the extent to which this baseline capacity — much like those for language, motion, and creativity — is a dynamic ability to be mastered and cultivated rather than a static state to be passively beheld. That disconnect is precisely what Leo Buscaglia considers in one of the most stimulating chapters in Love: What Life Is All About public library — that slim and potent volume based on his course at the University of Southern California, which also gave us Buscaglia on education, conformity, and how labels limit us.
