Love: E. Fromm

Love isn't something natural. 

Rather it requires discipline, concentration, patience, faith, and the overcoming of narcissism. 

It isn't a feeling, it is a practice.

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?

Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. 

Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love. 

-E. Fromm
