i read tiny bits of too many books at
a time! rereading the road less traveled.
totally a favorite of mine!
this sentence made me wish i could have
dinner with this guy....
maybe next life..
'among the things that i am saying here
and throughout this section of the book is
that our use of the word 'love' is so
generalized and unspecific as to severely
interfere with our understanding of love.'
i have had this thought a gazillion times!
was so good to read it!
this also felt freeing to me.
'in summary, dependency may appear to be love
because it is a force that causes people to
fiercely attach themselves to one another.
but in actuality it is not love; it is a
from of antilove. it has its genesis in a
parental failure to love and it perpetuates
the failure. it seeks to receive rather than
give. it nourishes infantilism rather than
growth. it works to trap and constrict
rather than to liberate. ultimately it destroys
rather than builds relationships, and it
destroys rather than builds people.'
