*Because I care about you,  I can permit you to be autonomous and independent of my evaluations and restrictions. You are a separate person with your own feelings and opinions regarding what is right or wrong. The fact that I care for you does not mean that I must guide you in making choices, but that I can allow you to be yourself  and to decide what’s best for you.*

Carl Rogers


*You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.* 

Wayne Dyer
