In love the paradox occurs that two beings become one and yet remain two.
By: Erich Fromm
Mothers love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.
Man always dies before he is fully born.
Just as love is an orientation which refers to all objects and is incompatible with the restriction to one object, so is reason a human faculty which must embrace the whole of the world with which man is confronted.
Just as modern mass production requires the standardization of commodities, so the social process requires standardization of man, and this standardization is called equality.
To die is poignantly bitter, but the idea of having to die without having lived is unbearable.
There is hardly any activity, any enterprise, which is started out with such tremendous hopes and expectations, and yet which fails so regularly, as love.
To hope means to be ready at every moment for that which is not yet born, and yet not become desperate if there is no birth in our lifetime.
Love is often nothing but a favorable exchange between two people who get the most of what they can expect, considering their value on the personality market.
The ordinary man with extraordinary power is the chief danger for mankind - not the fiend or the sadist.
What most people in our culture mean by being lovable is essentially a mixture between being popular and having sex appeal.
We live in a world of things, and our only connection with them is that we know how to manipulate or to consume them.
