The power of touch runs deep

Following on the theme of yesterday’s post — my April challenge to reach out and touch someone (new) — here are a few quotes that highlight the power of touch in our lives:

‘Tis the human touch in the world that counts — the touch of your hand and mine — which means far more to the sinking heart than shelter or bread or wine. For shelter is gone when the night is o’er, and bread lasts only a day. But the touch of the hand and the sound of the voice live on in the soul always.
(Spencer M. Free)

Yes I am a strong person, but every now and then I also need someone to take my hand and say everything will be OK.
(Anonymous)

Everybody needs a hug. It changes your metabolism
(Leo Buscaglia)

The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are the moments when we touch each other.
(Jack Kornfield)
