A Quote by Leo Buscglia on love, faith, simplicity, guidance, religion, and spirituality

A short time ago, one of my neighbors told me of a little church near my home where beautiful, spiritual things occurred, and he wanted me to go and experience it. So I said I'd love to, and we went there...There was a lot of singing and a lot of moving around and dancing -- a real celebration. But the high point came when the minister stood up and said, "Friends, Brother Jonathan is going to give the sermon today, and his subject is going to be faith." Little Brother Jonathan stood up. He was about five-foot-four. He stood before everybody for a minute, folded his hands and said, "Faith, faith, faith, faith, faith, faith." Then he sat down! The minister stood up with a big smile on his face and said, "Thank you, Brother Jonathan, for that beautiful lecture on faith." I thought, someday I'm going to wise up and when I go to talk to people as I am tonight, about love, I'm going to fold my hands and I'm going to say, "Love, love, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, love, love," and then I'm gonna go home! It'll be the most beautiful evening we've had. But I'm not that secure yet, so I'm going to spend an hour telling you what this man said in a minute.
