Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.

and not about seeking happiness for yourself.

is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I am determined to be cheerful and happy

Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition.
The immature mind often mistakes one for the other,
or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy -
in fact, they're almost incompatible;
one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

If we hope for what we are not likely to possess,
we act and think in vain,
