  Bernie Siegel, 365 Prescriptions for the Soul, Part 3

Prescription #42
Argue or Love

In arguments similes are like songs in love: they describe much by prove nothing.

- Matthew Prior

Shall we argue or make love? Some believe there are benefits to both. If we argue I can show you how smart and right I am. I can yell and sulk, turn away, try to sleep, and act as if Iíve won. If we love, there are no words equal to the feeling. We will both sleep in peace because there are no losers, only winners who have chosen to give their victories away.

Soulution of the Day

Being right sometimes comes at a high price; the cost is your happiness. Love is free and brings discount offers with it.
