“Love,” says Dr. Fromm, “is the only satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.”
Yet most of us are unable to develop our capacities for love on the only level that really counts—a love that is compounded of maturity, self-knowledge and courage.
Learning to love, like other arts, demands practice and concentration. Even more than any other art it demands genuine insight and understanding.
~ Eric Fromm, The Art of Loving (1956)
