Unusual Quotation: Erich Fromm on Love
Here’s a quotation you can use in a speech or in your writing, or your personal meditation or journalizing. It’s by Erich Fromm, the great social philosopher, humanistic philosopher, sociologist, and best-selling author, who died in 1980.
“Love is not primarily a relationship to a specific person; it is an attitude, an ordination of character which determines the relatedness of the person to the world as a whole, not towards one object of love.”
Don’t get embarrassed using a spurious Lincoln quote. Here’s a quotation book you can trust:
The Words Lincoln Lived By
“This is a book to cherish and share.”—Bill Marriott, CEO, Marriott International, Inc.
“Absolutely awesome! Inspirational and even life-changing for leaders or for general living. An in-depth exploration of Lincoln’s character, spiritual beliefs, lifetime motivations…” —Amazon verified purchaser
“Not only does Griessman give us Lincoln quotes, but he also weaves each one into a little jewel of an essay on that particular subject. In addition, this small volume contains “Biographical Notes” on the main figures cited and also a Bibliography of the sources quoted.” —Wayne C. Temple, Illinois State Archives
A stirring, inspirational treasury of quotations from our greatest and most admired president, the book offers rich material for interpretation, reflection, and spiritual guidance. In these pages, Lincoln, famed as an orator, shares his wisdom on courage and determination, compassion and compromise, tolerance and tact—the essential traits that define character. The timeless impact of his words is as powerful as the achievements that have helped to make him an American hero.
