Love . . .
“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 patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
~ The New Testament, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
