Felice Leonardo “Leo” Buscaglia Quote of The Week From Greg Bover

September 19, 2013

“Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever.”

Felice Leonardo “Leo” Buscaglia (1924-1998)

A California native born to an Italian immigrant family, Buscaglia spent much of his childhood in Italy, returning to the United States for his education, which culminated in three degrees from USC including a PhD. After joining the faculty, he was motivated to begin offering a class on love following the suicide of a favorite student. He wrote more than a dozen books on how to connect with other humans. His arresting lecturing style caught the attention of producers at PBS who made him a celebrity speaker, often featured during pledge drives, and a sought after counselor. Five of his books were on the New York Times best seller list simultaneously. Another similar piece of his advice: “Don’t spend your precious time asking ‘Why isn’t the world a better place?’ It will only be time wasted. The question to ask is ‘How can I make it better?’ To that there is an answer.”
