For The Love Of Wisdom – Erich Fromm – Understanding

Erich Fromm (March 23, 1900 – March 18, 1980)

To understand another means to love him — not in the erotic sense but in the sense of reaching out to him and of overcoming the fear of losing oneself…Understanding and loving are inseparable. If they are separate, it is a cerebral process and the door to essential understanding remains closed.
