Can one have love? If we could, love would need to be a thing, a substance that one can have, own, possess. The truth is, there is no such thing as "love." "Love" is an abstraction, perhaps a goddess or an alien being, although nobody has ever seen this goddess. In reality, there exists only the act of loving. To love is a productive activity. It implies caring for, knowing, responding, affirming, enjoying: the person, the tree, the painting, the idea. It means bringing to life, increasing his/her/its aliveness. It is a process, self-renewing and self increasing.
-- Erich Fromm

 

* Love is metaphysical gravity.

-- Mohandas K. Gandhi

* Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love."
~ Mohandas Gandhi

 

Forgiveness is choosing to love.
-- Mohandas K. Gandhi

"Whether humanity will consciously follow the law of love, I do not know. But that need not disturb me. The law will work just as the law of gravitation works, whether we accept it or not. The person who discovered the law of love was a far greater scientist than any of our modern scientists. Only our explorations have not gone far enough and so it is not possible for everyone to see all its workings."
-- Mahatma Gandhi

"Love grows by service."
-- Charlotte Perkins Gilman
