Immature love says: "I love you because I need you." Mature love says: "I need you because I love you"

~Erich Fromm 1900-1980 ~




Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own

~ Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land, 1961, 34~




Love is, above all, the gift of oneself

~Jean Anouilh, Ardele, 1948, 2, translated by Lucienne Hill ~




Love yourself first and everything else falls into line

~Lucille Ball ~




Proactive people make love a verb. Love is something you do: the sacrifices you make, the giving of self, like a mother bringing a newborn into the world. If you want to study love, study those who sacrifice for others, even for people who offend or do not love in return. If you are a parent, look at the love you have for the children you sacrificed for. Love is a value that is actualized through loving actions. Proactive people subordinate feelings to values. Love, the feeling, can be recaptured

~ Stephen R. Covey~
