To love somebody is not just a strong feeling - it is a decision




Thoughtsandlife: Love

LOVE
"One neglects to see an important factor in love . . . that of will.
To love somebody is not just a strong feeling - it 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,if my actions do not involve judgment and decision."

- Erich Fromm (1900-1980)
Psychoanalyst and writer
