Quote by Erich Fromm
Immature love says, "I love you because I need you." Mature love says, "I need you because I love you."
What I need to live has been given to me by the earth. Why I need to live has been given to me by you.
People need love. Life without tenderness and without love is just a mechanism for dry grinding and heartbreaking.
I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.
They say you only fall in love once, but that can't be true. Every time I look at you, I fall in love all over again.
If your life depended on the love that I have for you then you would live forever.
Sometimes I just wish you were here so I could tell you how much I need you and how hard every day has been without you.
No, this trick won't work...How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?
Love has its own instinct, finding the way to the heart, as the feeblest insect finds the way to its flower, with a will which nothing can dismay nor turn aside.
The most powerful symptom of love is a tenderness which becomes at times almost insupportable.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in that action.
