From my readings this morning I learned that one should not love people for who they are (for their characteristics), but only in order to be loved in return.


One Comment to “”

  1. …so many loves, so many motivations. in some of the subtlest, not in need of any “in order to”, one loves the possibility of the beloved person’s improvement. This is not idealism (one loves the other person, and not any Platonic ideal), but realism, one might label it: for, persons are not “given” but, perhaps, with reservations (who can fathom our souls anyway? Definitely not another person), “given possibilities”… Be well!

Say something interesting
