Emotie - Emotion
Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something – and it is only such love that can know freedom.
"Qoud perdidit optat", -
"wat hij verloren heeft, verlangt hij terug"
Love can do nothing,
but without it nothing can be done.
Bernhardt. (Don Juan.)
They who will learn Love, will always be its scholars.
Ye shall some day love beyond yourselves So first learn loving!
“Love is the bridge between you and everything.”
“No work or love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.” – Alan Watts
“Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.”
– Alan Watts
“The ignorance of woman's physiology which prevails among most men is boundless and incredible.” — Camille Mauclair
Si vis amari, ama. If thou wilt be loved—love.
