Thomas Slatin Quote

“Every person is a gift, and as such are so much more than their jobs, their possessions, or bloated bank accounts. It seems the more we take, the less we become; the fortune of one can only equate with less for some. Love, the greatest thing in life, and are the feelings of the heart.” —Thomas Slatin, Belong

    Very nice quote Tom. True love is knowing a person’s fault, and loving them even more of them. Choosing the many things the person did right rather than the one he did wrong.

    Lovely and a true quote Thomas, true love starts from ourself. What you dont have you cant give. Also everyone that comes in contact with us are important

  • Danielle M

    I agree with you, I guess that’s why people who lives a simple life is happier and more in contact with their true value.

  • David Tjoe

    This quote is extraordinary, showing how you can fully understand the meaning of all this life. I still need a lot to learn from you, thanks for this.

    Great sentiment. We as human beings are far superior to our material possessions. Were all connected through what we take and what we give back.

  • Glad

    Very lovely quote, and I won’t agree with you more every individual is a gift. So we should appreciate each other, love one another, not just what we stand to gain from them.

  • Clarissa

    Absolutely right, honor the person who loves you with or without richness. Their pure love is already a blessing. Money can’t buy you happiness, love brings you contentment.

  • Meg W

    This is very insightful. Sometimes people are so caught up with their earthly posessions that they forget what matters the most.

    “It seems the more we take, the less we become.” Those words ring so true especially in our society today.

  • Anderson

    In today’s world, people attach too much importance to material possessions. This quote acts as a wake up call to all of us.

  • Sylvia

    The things that we are unable to physically touch like love are always the most important. Material things are nothing but vanity.

  • Alex

    I agree and it seems the more progressive we get the more we forget what really counts and we are focusing on things rather than what and who we are. I always believe this money, power, etc are just tools and should not be more than that. We can use it to be better but it should not control us.
