Erich Fromm,The Art of Loving

“Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.”

    1. Glad you liked the quote!
      Unfortunately, most people don’t think like this anymore – not that they used to think otherwise in the past .I reckon love is taken too much for granted!

  1. I think the concept of love as an act or a decision is very beautiful and should be a basis for our interactions with other beings…

Tell me what you think! :)
