A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on love, potential, success, perception, and loving

No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being until he loves him. By his love he is enabled to see the essential traits and features in the beloved person; and even more, he sees that which is potential in him, which is not yet actualized.

Viktor Frankl (1905 - 1997)
