Love is a Priceless Gift… the Only Thing One Can Give Out and Still Have It

These words by Leo Tolstoy have been coming up in my mind lately. There are thousands – maybe even millions – of people in this world who have never known what love is like, because their parents did not know it either and never taught their kids how to love.

Like many other things, love can (and certainly should) be taught, because a person deprived of love since childhood has very poor chances to be happy. So I have been asking myself: what can I do to help people learn how to love? Being a teacher, what can I do to assist people in lerning the art and science of love? In a perfect world, a teacher is the second closest person (after parents) to the student, so technically, teachers might do a part of the job, which parents fail to do… but alas! Love is not taught at schools!

Today, when the world has become so frail, learning how to love each other is the only answer we have. This is why my personal motto has been: “Share love, educate, inspire.”


“Любовь — это бесценный дар. Это единственная вещь, которую мы можем подарить и все же она у тебя остаётся.” – Л.Толстой
