Immature love says, "I love you because I need you." Mature love says, "I need you because I love you."
Erich Fromm (1900 - 1980)

In love the paradox occurs that two beings become one and yet remain two.
There is no meaning to life except the meaning man gives to his life by the unfolding of his powers.
As we ascend the social ladder, viciousness wears a thicker mask.
One cannot be deeply responsive to the world without being saddened very often.
Happiness is a man's greatest achievement; it is the response of his total personality to a productive orientation toward himself and the world outside.
Hate is a product of the unfulfilled life.
Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
Man's main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality.
