Milan Kundera

This quote was added by mclare
Perhaps the reason we are unable to love is that we yearn to be loved, that is, we demand something (love) from our partner instead of delivering ourselves up to him demand-free and asking for nothing but his company.

Well, that's the catch about love. The truth is, we're all have a vested interest in love. We don't love someone if we don't feel a need to be around them for one reason or another. But it is true that we have to act as if love is a gift, completely disinterested. Love is mutual gift giving. Seems a bit disingenious, but there it is.

Sounds like a recipe for successful love. Of course, change it to the appropriate opposite gender :) Which for me would be female and voila. Though it may be a skosh more difficult still than that.
